As Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan famously said, “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.” The German Catholic hierarchy has decided to help the Turkish invaders build their barracks, affix their bayonets, and bring their faithful soldiers into Germany.

Hamburg Bishop: Christians should support mosque construction
Auxiliary Bishop Jaschke said: “We Christians support the construction of lovely mosques. I think it is conceivable that Christians will give Muslims presents at the opening of a new mosque.”
Hamburg (kath.net/KNA) — The Hamburg auxiliary bishop Hans-Jochen Jaschke has called for the construction of new mosques in Germany. At the same time he called on Christians symbolically to support the opening of such buildings. “I think that it is conceivable that Christians will give Muslims presents at the opening of a new mosque — as a sign of sympathy, good neighbourliness and religious solidarity,” said the spokesperson for the German Bishop’s conference for interfaith dialogue as reported in Hamburg’s daily paper, Die Welt.
One possibility, for instance, would be a plaque with a verse from the Bible and one from the Koran. The churches could start a collection of money for the financing of a gift, according to the bishop. “We Christians support the construction of beautiful mosques,” says the bishop. People should feel that belief is connected to beauty and culture. However, Jaschke also warned that there are Islamic parallel societies with separate infrastructure found in the vicinity of these mosques.
