Stonings, amputations, warfare against non-Muslims, institutionalized subjugation of women and non-Muslims, denial of the freedom of speech — what do you mean, incompatible with German law? This is the new, Merkelian,
“Berlin’s New Secretary of State is Pro-Sharia Law Conservative Muslim,” by Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, December 11, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
The daughter of Palestinian immigrants is to be the Berlin senate’s secretary of state for coordinating federal and state affairs, but attention has focused on her recent remarks in support of Sharia law.______________________________________________________
Berlin state senate member, former deputy speaker for foreign affairs and Muslim rising star of German politics Sawsan Chebli is to get a new cabinet post. The appointment by the Red-Red-Green coalition government has caused concern after a recent interview in which she expressed her view that Sharia law was perfectly compatible with secular German society.
Speaking back in August alongside Berlin Social Democrat party Mayor Michael Muller, she not only defended Sharia law against suspicion by many Germans who she accused of not understanding what it meant, but she also went on the attack too. Criticising members of anti-mass migration party Alternative for German (AfD), she said their views towards foreigners made them fundamentally un-German.
Speaking to the Franzfurter Allgeimeine Zeitung, she said: “My father is a pious Muslim, hardly speaks German, can neither read nor write, but he is more integrated than many functionaries of the AfD who question our constitution”.
Germany’s newspaper of record and the nation’s most widely-read broadsheet Welt reported Sunday that while the politician attempted to portray the image of the perfect “successful migrant” who despite being born to illiterate, stateless parents was able to succeed in education and enter politics, there are “cracks” displayed by her support of Sharia.
In August she complained that in political discourse, German national law and Sharia law are always presented as contradictory to each other, and said “Everyone talks about Shariah, but hardly anyone knows what Sharia means”. Remarking that Sharia exists “largely to govern the relationship between God and man”, Chebli said Sharia law was “absolutely compatible” with Germany….
Germany: Steinmeier sending diplomat to Turkey to improve relations – FM spokesperson
Published on Aug 8, 2016Spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry Sawsan Chebli announced today that Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has sent State secretary Markus Ederer to Turkey in order to have direct talks with the Turkish authorities, during a press conference in Berlin on Monday.
SOT, Sawsan Chebli, spokesperson for Foreign Ministry (German): "We must ask ourselves the question: 'what do we actually want?' Turkey is an important partner. Turkey is an important neighbour and with each set of the refugee agreements there are important things we have to discuss with and work with them on: political, economic, and, based on the 3.5 million Turkish-Germans living here, we have a closer relationship. And when we take a look at Turkey we must ask ourselves the question: 'how do we get out of this very difficult, very [..] confrontational situation?' It is important for us to have another conversation which is why Foreign Minister [Frank-Walter] Steinmeier sent the Secretary of State to Turkey to have a direct conversation with the Turkish [and] also to search for different levels and to strengthen and bring closer the conversation, instead of, like I said, speaking over the mega phone and microphone."
SOT, Sawsan Chebli, spokesperson for Foreign Ministry (German): "In our view it is good that, following the downing of a Russian warplane through Turkey in the past years, that there is an approach. We can only welcome that, because the more that is spoken to each other - also with the conflict background in the region in which Turkey is part of - the better."
SOT, Sawsan Chebli, spokesperson for Foreign Ministry (German): "Turkey is and will stay an important partner in NATO and we don't presume therefore at the present moment that [NATO] cooperation, through the relationship between Russia and Turkey, could somehow have an impact [on NATO relations]."
