انه اقل الجهاد, تذكر انك مسؤول امام الله والامة والتاريخ
At nov 24th 2004 the investigation against Fadi Madi, one of the organizors of the
"First arabic-islamic congress" in Berlin was stopped.
The Basic of the rushing expelling has been, that the generalattorney of germany at the highest court has started that investigation about suspicion of assembling members and supporters for a foreign terroristic group and other criminal acts.
Although Fadi Madi and the preparation for the congress was observed since half a year and both called nonviolent, that was done.
Now it is clear, that there was not a single proof of doing anything wrong.
Here should be mentioned as extremly interesting, that the investigation against Gabriel Daher another organizor was stopped earlier, because he is christian and cannot be an islamist and not with any bad intention. This he himself told from the papers about him.
From the actions in the Madi case very early could be seen, that it is only made out of political reasons, that the public was deceived and that Schilly, the Interior Minister of Germany, was looking for a victim "to show strength".
Also it sounds a bit naiv, the intention of Fadi Madi to let the congress take place just in germany was, because he was convicted, that we have a state of law and democracy in germany still and the right to have a free opinion and to tell it is still working here.
And together with german politicians, intellectuals and engaged ppl he wanted to find a consencus, to deal with the open questions, what is terror, what is legal and which are the legal ways for resistance.
His main fault was in first line, that he didn t understand enough german to see, what is going on here. That politicians and media aere starting an arson (as we had it in history already)again. The fact, that a demonstration, which took place every year, always peaceful, to remember the oppressed and tortured ppl of palestine, is seen as criminal now. That here in germany muslims are forced to go to a demonstration to show, that they are against terror, although it is of course clear, that all of us see terror just as something unacceptable and nothing else. Since when we have to prve to be innocent in germany? That is against all principles of our law and democracy, but that doesnt count anymore for muslims.
That all he wasn t told from his companions, which let him run into an open knife.
Especially those, who wanted a congress, but not in public as he did, openly, but in secret, because there goals for iraq are very different, and altough police know this, they just don t know how to deal with, because those are not muslims.
Fadi Madi is a muslim, with all personal weakness but also with the strength, to work for people who are oppressed and tortured. Working for that, he often forgets his own belongings and those of his surrounding, but he never forgets, that justice and freedom is the most important.
He doesn t live his islam outside like others, who are running often into mosques and into talkshows in tv, but he lives it in relation to God.
Therefore he had no contacts in germany to mosquescommunities or islamic organisations, what they answered with the fact, that they went to distance with him at once in the media, to show how much they are confirm with the government. And that only because they have been insulted, not to be asked from him before.
They went into distance to a brother, who does more for muslims as they even can imagine to do. But one day, those will even go in distance to their mothers if asked from government and also from islam at all. But for that they will be asked later from a higher instance.
It is our duty to help our suffering brothers and sisters and not to forget them. That with legal ways of course and without doubt.
I understand, that muslims from foreign countries are afraid here in germany now, and I understand everyon who has fear to say anything in public at the moment.
So far we are again in germany.............
But that doesnt justify to go publicly in distance or to say bad things about a brother, who does something better.
For sure he should have chosen his words more wisely. The translation were completly done by the other organizors, which have not been made responsible for that and who have been doing that convienced from what they do.
And more than that, me as his wife some of the muslims are ignoring and stopped talking with me, because I didn t go in distance to him, although might be I was the only person, who had reasons to do so. Some have stopped completly relation to me, because it is too dangerous to think politically in germany.
So far we are again in germany...............
Who is really thinking about, that yesterday they expelled Fadi Madi and today or tomorrow you are the enxt, who have to go, because Schilly needs to show again strength.
We should open our mouth already for the reasin, that we don t want to allow to lose our state of law and our democracy, which means a lot to us and we don t want to allow tha tthose politicians damage that for the reason to make themselfs big, out of which reason the opinion was changed during the years very much, just that showing it is only to make himself big, only.
This action about integration and dialogue was damaged with the refusal of the harmless but so important conference and the fear to be active raised even among muslims. But it also shows, that it is not really wished integration and dialogue, but assimilation and shutting up.
Now those politicians who showed during the years their guesthouseopinions about foreigners only among themselfs and not openly, show directly how they are thinking, because they think, that this now is possible and they can do in public. But they are wrong.
I still trust in people in our coountry, who are still human beings and who will realize the truth and will not accept, that we come again to a point, where germany was in history already.
They will realize, that living togethter is more important as to build new hatred against all foreign things.
I ask the muslims in germany, to show courage against the black sheps among us and act against them. Learn german, where this is not yet done and fight for your rights, but also take your duties in this country and society.
Bad behaviour, which we have among us in big amount are not eliminated if we keep silent and close our eyes, where everyone see them clearly. We must put them on the table and fight them, in the way, that we care for those who do wrong more and help them.
My cat also closes always her eyes, that I cannot see her!
The living together in any case would be much easier, if we would live as Annemarie Schimmel demanded:
I always must compare my own faults with the faults of others and my own good things with the good things of others. Not to compare my own good things witht the faults of the others.
