German president hosts Iran-linked anti-Semitic Islamic group for “interreligious dialogue”

“President Frank-Walter Steinmeier was heavily criticized for meeting with members of Shiite group in Germany that has direct links to Iran and espouses anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views.”

Jew-hatred has returned to Germany in a major way with the massive influx of Muslim migrants. Islamic Jew-hatred: it’s in the Quran. But instead of reaching out to the Jewish community and vowing to protect it, Steinmeier has met with an anti-Semitic group, the Islamic Community of the Shiite Communities of Germany (IGS). It is clear with which group the Merkel government’s priorities lie. The Merkel government wants Muslim support and Muslim votes. And that means that the Jews in Germany will once again suffer.

However, Stop the Bomb spokeswoman Ulrike Becker rejected the president’s move, as she said it can be seen as legitimizing and supporting those who are against Israel, secular Muslims and homosexuals.

“Steinmeier’s open door policy for the IGS is part of a fatal strategy which seeks to cooperate with Islamist organizations that are often controlled by radical Arab organizations or by the Turkish or Iranian state,” she stated. “This policy must be stopped, as well as the funding of these organizations from federal funds as it threatens secular and moderate Muslims, endangers the democratic integration of refugees in Germany and helps to spread anti-Semitism, rather than curbing it.”…
