| Striking at the Symbolic Heart of Christendom in Cologne
| Monday, January 18, 2016
|The “Dome” is the term locals in Cologne use to refer to the city’s great cathedral:
Cologne Dome — A Bombardment With Symbolic Power - Klaus-Jürgen Gadamer
From an Arab point of view, what is the symbol of the unbelievers? It
is the Christian churches. Therefore, if I want to hit Christian
culture in the center, I will bombard their churches. Quite possibly the German press has yet failed to comprehend the most
Let’s therefore dare to change perspective, and look
at it from the view of Arab culture.
A I write this I am in Burma. In all Burmese and Thai newspapers I
can see reports detailing the events on the Cologne Dome Plaza. The
dominating tone of these reports is overwhelmingly on why and how
Germans could allow it to happen, that their religious symbols and their
women were attacked.
It is unthinkable in Southeast Asia that temples
would be bombarded with fireworks and light rockets, especially by
foreigners. One should change perspective here. It is war in Germany,
and Germans were generously granted asylum in an Islamic country.
during an Islamic celebration, 1,000 Germans go on a rampage, attack
women, and throw fireworks at mosques. I cannot even begin to imagine
The outrage over the completely disrespectful intrusions and criminal activities of North Africans towards women in Cologne was enormous everywhere in the German media. And of course all politically correct media call to defer to the results of the police investigations. But what, exactly, with regard to the offenders, could result in new information?
According to all witness testimonies all the offenders were “southern-looking” North Africans. Nobody even spoke of Caucasian people.
So now there are two possibilities of attribution. Either the offenders were North African asylum seekers, or they were naturalized Germans with an Arab background. The latter would make it even worse, because it would mean that integration was a complete and utter failure, which is of course partly the case anyway.
But from the viewpoint of the politically correct media it is of course understandable to relativize the widespread concern of Germans, until other news overshadows this indignation, and there will be no anger boiling over against the manipulating media within the citizenry.
The Dome as the Symbol of the Kuffar
But what is in the Arab view symbolic for unbelievers? It is the Christian churches: And none more so than the Cologne Dome. If I therefore want to hit Western culture in the heart, I will bombard churches, and I will resist the police with all of my contempt. I had best spit at them, and throw fireworks at them. I already know the German police are toothless, and there’s nothing that could really happen to me.
