Reader comment on item: Turkey: An Ally No More
in response to reader comment: to Ianus: some clarification on my position

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Nov 7, 2009 at 15:27

Hi, myth !

Thanks for your elucidations. Anyway, could you clarify why you have chosen "myth" as your nickname?

> Hello Ianus, interesting points of view from your side that I have not heard before. <

Most of those things I have heard in Germany. But the most interesting thing - which probably explains why so few critical things are ever heard in public in Germany - was that heard from a friend of mine from Oberbierenbach. A relative of his serves in the police as a high officer. He told my friend that some years ago they had received a circular letter from the Ministry of the Interior advising all police departments to handle criminal cases in the following way. If the perpetrator happens to be a foreigner and a Moslem , then his identity should be kept secret from the public as far as possible. But if he is German , and particularly a neo-Nazi, then the details about him should be made public and the fact widely circulated in the media.

Have you ever noticed with what tenacity the spectre of Neo-Nazism in Germany is present in the German media while apalling cases like those in Iserlohn are systematically played down and swept under the carpet ?

> Some clarification on my position: I am not a multicultural type of man. My position is, call it "maxi-cultural": Based on the mainstream culture of the host country adopt some cultural qualities from the immagrants that the majority considers of value.This way, not the other way around, don't let immigrant cultures impose their ways on the host-country.<

I agree as I think that cultures are not equal. Some cultures produce more good, are more human and intellectually superior while others are irrational and fail. Moslem barbarity is the very opposite of what I hold to be European culture. I don't really know what I might consider of value in this absurd, inhuman, primitive and obscurantist death cult with all its nonsensical dogmas and rituals that serve nothing but better mind control and decay?

> I would always demand and, more important, offer assimilation. Maybe you know yourself, but one can in public be of one culture and in private of another.<

Assimilation or even integration doesn't work with Moslems at all. How can you expect integration from those who consider you a dirty kafir ? Allah's laws can't be subordinated to human laws. They are valid for a Moslem while your German laws aren't teh moment they are contradicte by Allah's words. It's a grave erroror self-illusion to pretend the Moslems might or will change their mind.

> Another clarification: when I speak of turkish elements in german mainstream culture I mean that german-germans routinely enjoy some of the turkish-german's culture as part of their every-day-lives. <

Do you mean kebab e.g. ? I'd rather miss that Persian invention than become a Turkish colony and a Turkish bazaar where secret and dirty activities of Turkish spies, killers and agents provocateurs are being freely carried out. Will you enjoy that nasty inherent aspect of the Turco-German pseudo-idyll too ?
