“‘No mosque new construction in Erfurt.’ Nazis stick this to lanterns on our area of the mosque. The mosque will be built, then another one, and then another and then many more. Until every village has a mosque! Nazis will certainly not stop us.” – this is the tweet of Suleman Malik, Deputy Mayor of Erfurt.
Our tweet of the day comes from Suleman Malik, who calls himself the “first Muslim local politician of Thuringia and deputy mayor of Erfurt. He twitters under the motto “Love for all, hate for none”. This love shows itself among other things in the fact that it announces to the people of Erfurt that the construction of a new mosque in their city is only the beginning:
“The mosque will be erected, then another will be built, and then another and then many more. Until every village has its own mosque!”
And this provocation is having an effect. Suleman meets fierce resistance against his manner of love: “Germany was and is a Christian country. I would say that for every mosque in Germany a Christian church is built in a Muslim country for the Christian minority and the persecution of the Christian minority is also stopped,” replies one of the Twitter users.
And another asks, “Why would Nazis do that? Historically, Nazis have nothing at all against an expansion of Islam. On the contrary. They saw Muslims as brothers in spirit. But you like to portray it that way to discredit any protest, right?”
