Islam Conquering Higher European Education

Efforts to create a "European Islam" are naïve and misguided, and will "mainstream" an ideology that contradicts the European way of life.
The Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, will offer a degree in Islamic theology beginning in 2014.

DITIB is being used by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to exert control over 900 mosques in Germany — and to prevent Turkish immigrants from integrating into German society. Erdogan believes that the assimilation of Muslims into a non-Muslim society “is a crime against humanity.”

During a meeting with German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich in February 2013, Erdogan said that Berlin’s insistence that Turkish immigrants who want to live in Germany must integrate and learn the German language is “a violation of human rights.”

Education Minister Schavan says she is “placing a lot of trust” in the new Islamic centers, which she hopes will “contribute to the further development of Islamic theology.”

Schavan’s assistant at the Ministry of Education, Thomas Rachel, says the rise of taxpayer-funded Islamic centers in Germany is a “historic development, comparable to the rise of protestant Christian theology after the Reformation 500 years ago.” According to Rachel, “Muslim theology will be firmly established in German universities, and thus also in German society.”

    There is more to wickedness in Islam. It is how this culture is propagated and practice, at the end, imposed… Ask, search, read the leading experts' analysis and masteries on the theme, Islam is as a serpent, there is nothing to tame the venom. I suggest the books of Barry Rubin on Islam and the Middle/Near East in relation to international issues. There are numerous facts to reckon with, in attempting to civilize this religion. So help us G_D… come to our rescue.

    IT IS BECOMING "BELGIUMSTAN" JUST WHAT THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY NEEDS.
    MORE C–P COURSES LEADING NOWHERE EXCEPT UNEMPLOYMENT.
    ISN'T UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG MUSLIMS HIGH ENOUGH WITHOUT CREATING MORE.
    USELESS IMAMS. WE HAVE THESE PROGRAMS AT U S COLLEGES LIKE "MEDIA STUDIES" OR "COMPARITIVE RELIGION" ETC. THIS IS NICE FOR RECREATIONAL.
    OR CULTURAL DISCUSSIONS BUT THE ONLY THING THESE STUDIES WILL LEAD TO.
    IS HATRED OF THE WEST AND TRUE DEMOCRACY…AND THE SUPPRESSION OF WOMEN AND MINORITIES…EUROPE BEWARE..MUSLIMS BREED AT MUCH HIGHER RATE AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY IN BELGIUM WILL BE AGAIN INTRODUCING " CATHOLIC STUDIES".

  4. David Bergart says:

    We are showing ourselves to be a tolerant society…we even believe that we can educate tolerant Imams, these European Imams will be rejected and shunned by Muslims…unfortunately this will be an effort in futility…are there any Catholics or other religious leaders being educated in Muslim universities…we are only fooling ourselves into believing we can educate Muslim leaders.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.
