Had there been more people like Volker Kauder during the 1930’s in Germany, his country would not have allowed the emergence of Hitler and his nazi party.
Because society consist of people with low level reasoning who make apologies for evil, nazism was able to get support and flourish, and eventually run the entire country, committing the worse atrocities of modern history. Interestingly, Islamic rulers are the only other group that has committed bigger atrocities in human history than the Nazi’s.
Hitler was a great admirer of Islam and believed that Germany could have ruled the entire world had it not had Christianity as it’s religion, but rather been a follower of Islam. To reciprocate the admiration the entire Middle East look up to and defend Hitler’s actions to this day. But to the supporters of evil, Volker Kauder is only branded another bigot and Islamophobe.

A LEADING German conservative has said Islam does not belong in Germany, fuelling tensions at a conference on integration.
“Islam is not part of our tradition and identity in Germany and so does not belong in Germany,” Volker Kauder, head of chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party in parliament, told the Passauer Neue Presse yesterday.
“But Muslims do belong in Germany. As state citizens, of course, they enjoy their full rights,” he added.
His remarks added to a highly charged nationwide debate about a campaign by an ultra-conservative Salafist Muslim group, The True Religion, to hand out millions of free German translations of the Koran to non-Muslims, which was also discussed at the conference.
It was one of a series hosted by the government to improve the integration of the four million Muslims living in Germany, – a nation of 81 million – about half of whom have German citizenship.
Many came from Turkey in the 1960s and 1970s and their hard work contributed to Germany’s post-war economic miracle. Kauder’s comments quickly came under fire. “Volker Kauder is the last crusader for the conservatives. He is putting a bomb in the Islam conference,” said senior opposition Social Democrat MP Thomas Oppermann.
“He is denigrating and marginalising all Muslims in Germany. That course is utterly wrong,” he added.
