The Koran reported to the German police
Things are heating up in Germany. According to Jyllands-Posten, a wide array of grassroots´ movements, organied in the Bundesverband der Bürgerbewegungen ((BdB - Federal Union og the Citizens´ Movements) has reported the Koran to the police, with an aim to get the law to stop its spread. The reasoning is, that the book is not just a religious and historical book, but a political one, outlining a path incompatible with the German contitution.
The BdB busies itself with, as it says, "defending basic and freedom rights" against islam. Their homepage is emblazoned with a Dannebrog (the Danish flag), with "Support Denmark! Defend the free world" above it.
The case has been brought to the polcie in several German states, at least in Hamburg, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westfalia and Bavaria, and probably in more. Rightwing politicians have in several tv-talkshows pointed out, that the koran in reality is incompatible with the constitution.
The plaintiff (if that´s the word) in Hamburg, Jutta Starke, says that the case has been brought to the police´s attention 2-3 years ago already, but that it was dimissed as merely a historic book.
She ends thus: "The event of the last few monts have made clear, that the koran is not just a historical book, but a very potent political one, which we outline at length in our suit (if thats the word - Henrik)".
