Germany’s Christian Democratic Union Party Gains First Muslim Parlimentarian


Cemile Giousouf

Why should the CDU be any different than the Tories or the Republican Party?

For the first time in their history, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats have put forward a Turkish-Muslim candidate, Cemile Giousouf, to run for the federal election.

The 35 year old Giousouf is confident that the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) will attract Turkish voters and show growing interest in addressing the political demands of immigrants in the next legislation period.

“There has been a significant change in the CDU’s approach towards immigrants,” Giousouf said on Thursday in an exclusive interview with AA.

“This is not only symbolic. The CDU is strongly investing in integration policies, policies towards immigrants” she added.

In the past, Turkish immigrants largely favored the Social Democrats and Greens in general elections but the recent opening of the CDU towards immigrants may introduce a change, according to Cemile Giousouf, whose parents belong to the Turkish minority in Greece.

It’s bound to change now. Look at all the commonalities.

“Religious people, whatever religion they belong to, have shared interests. Both Muslims and Christians in Germany want for example to have religion taught at school,” Giousouf told broadcaster Deutsche Welle recently.

Also both want the death penalty for adultery. Wait… no.

Cemile Giousouf pointed out that there are different ideas inside the CDU on the issue of dual-citizenship, a major demand of Turkish immigrants, and the divisive issue of Turkey’s EU membership.

While Chancellor Merkel had long been skeptical about Turkey’s EU membership and opposed dual-citizenship for Turkish immigrants, CDU leaders in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), including former integration minister Armin Laschet, are supporting the demands raised by immigrants.

Of course they are.

 Cemile Giousouf is delighted with the strong support she received from the young generation of German-Turks in the city of Hagen during her campaign. Giousouf says that if she is elected, her main priorities will be developing policies towards ensuring equal opportunities in education and employment, as many immigrants still face discrimination in entering high-ranked schools and securing employment.

Of course she is.

    Why is WAR AGGRESSOR, Muslim Turkey, a member of NATO?

      i have no problem with Turkey in the EU as long as they can be westernized. There is a significant number of secular Turks. They do not appear to be wining right now.

      Louis Gates Jr. needs to go over there and give DNA test to the Turkish population. They might not be so dismissive of other parts of their ancestry.

      But if Turkish nationalists want to be in your face then I fully support a Kurdish state spanning Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey that would be almost as large as Turkey. Actually I support a Kurdish state anyway.

      • LindaRivera

        I support a Kurdish state in the Muslim countries mentioned.
        I utterly OPPOSE Turkey in the EU. The 56 Muslim countries would NEVER submit to THEIR countries being massively colonized by non-Muslims. It is nonsense to suggest Turks can be westernized. Several years ago, Lebanon was a Christian country. Now majority Muslim and a terrifying, non-stop nightmare for Christians.

          It was said recently that 25% of the people in the Athens, Greece telephone book had Turkish derived surnames.

          The implication was that they were Turkish in ancestry. Maybe and maybe not. They might have 35% Turkish ancestry and 755 Greek if you got into the nitty gritty of looking a the “microsatelites”. So what are they. Someone once said ethnicity or what nation you belonged to was fluid, you vote with your feet. So are these people In Athens Greek or Turkish I would say they are Greek.

          But you can turn the observation on its’ head. Scratch a Greek find a Turk. Scratch a Turk find a Greek. Genetically anyway. What about the people of Turkey? what are they. In the 1920s a million people converted to Islam to keep their land on the coast of the black Sea and not be deported to Greece.

          *** I think of significant #s of Turks got their genetic profile reports it might change how they thought about themselves.***

          People should have some pride in every bit of their ancestry not just the patriarchal line. I think that is a wedge that over time you can drive a Mack truck thru.

          I am chagrined and happy at the same time that there were Gay Pride Parades in Turkey. I think being gay is the result of socio-economic forces in great part and also confusion among some. Nonetheless if they can be tolerated that says something about Turkey. Unlike gays who point to that as a sign of one way progress, i think the Turkish PM and his followers will get around to wiping it out if they continue to gain power. Which I think they will. I do not see the stupid president do anything about except to say “You go Guy!

          but like there might be a growing underground Christian movement in Iran, I think if Turkey was liberalized thru force of EU entry then Bibles would be allowed in and you would see a lot of growth in Christianity.

          It is too early to tell and I am pessimistic about it. I live near a Turk and he told me that they had few Jews in Turkey and that was a good thing. He told me Bibles were banned form being imported and that also was a good thing. So I am pessimistic. But I think DNA profiles would help. I am sure the turk that I know is more mongrel than he realizes.

          It can go either way fast. But it can’t go our way if we are a doormat.

          You’re a piece of work aren’t you. You know nothing about Turkey or Turks. BTW stop being so self-righteous, “I utterly OPPOSE Turkey in the EU” blahblahblah, well I utterly don’t give a shit. EDL, figures. Morons who site the same wikipedia articles that they themselves write as history, basing their lies upon other lies and fooling only themselves.

        The Kurds were complicit in the genocide and enslavement of 2.5 million Armenian and Assyrian Christians, after all, they’re still muslimes and members of the ummah

        • Aizino Smith

          The Kurds are complicit.

          Do I trust them? A little.

          Yes they are Muslim and over the long haul they are not to be trusted.

          But Iran Turkey,Iraq and Syria would be trying to crush them. It would weaken & distract them and use up some of their resources.

          It would be doing the right thing. giving a group of people self determination. Whether they were trustworthy or not it would change the whole dynamic of the Middle East. if you read the Foundation by Isaac Asimov, it think you might see where i a going with this.

        • LindaRivera

          defcon 4 Thank you so much for your comment! I had planned and I’m going to give the same Armenian genocide facts to Kambara in response to his taqiyya hate comment further below this one.

          I have attended an Armenian genocide remembrance street demo. At one Armenian genocide remembrance street demo, the Armenians have a video of Muslims coming up to the mourning Armenians and MOCKING them. And our countries have been colonized with these ‘people’ ? It is the biggest BETRAYAL of nations’ leaders in all of history.

    • Kambara

      This is why I hate you people. My grandfather died in a concentration camp run by Greek Cypriots. Many cousins have also lost family members in the 1950s and 1960s. The Greeks in Cyprus absolutely rejected our right to exist, despite the fact that we have been living here for 500 years. In the 1950s and 60s they burned our farms and drove us out. Some of us fled to Turkey while others gathered in “strongholds”.

      Ever heard of the EOKA? It was a Greek militant organization founded in 1955; the Turkish military didn’t arrive until 1974 by which time EOKA wasn’t active, who do you think they ‘fought’ against? Unarmed civilians, that’s who.

      If the Turkish military hadn’t come in 1974, the Turkish Cypriot community would have been eradicated. I know that’s something you people wish and desire but for my family and hundreds of thousands of others it isn’t such a nice notion.

      That’s Turkey’s “Illegal Occupation” for you. You’re right, we’re Muslim and Turkish, for you people it’s illegal for us to live.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “That’s Turkey’s “Illegal Occupation” for you. You’re right, we’re Muslim and Turkish, for you people it’s illegal for us to live.”

        That’s not true at all. What we object to are devious, destructive mendacious sovereigns and stealth colonists. And their louder “militant” brethren as well.

        Other than that, if you’re a good citizen according to our values, we’ll love you.

      • LindaRivera

        We DON’T hate Muslims. Unfortunately, for us non-Muslims, Islamic teachings command Muslims to HATE and KILL non-Muslims.

        We non-Muslims believe in our Glorious, Wonderful Magnificent Creator, the God of all life. The Merciful, Awesome God who commanded: YOU SHALL NOT MURDER.

        The Muslim god is the total opposite of the HOLY ONE, Master of the Universe.

        Every non-Muslim on earth is in great DANGER because of the violent, barbaric teachings of the Quran:

        Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers

        Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them.

        Founder of Islam, Mohammad: I HAVE BEEN MADE VICTORIOUS BY TERROR
        The Hadith, collected by Bukhari (4.52.220)

        • Kambara

          Wake up, there is no God. You can find enough examples of mandates to kill ‘heathens’ in the scriptures of both Islam and Christianity. Historically speaking, Christians have killed more people in the name of God than any other religion. Why are they any different than Muslim extremists?

          Bottom line is, the only REAL thing that separates Greeks from Turks is religion. This is clear enough when you consider the lack of conflict between groups of different ethnicities but same religions.

          I’m not a fan of Islam, slaying infidels is a common directive in both Christianity and Islam. If you really want to distinguish Islam as evil, I can tell you of some really perverted stuff regarding marriage and sharia law. So don’t waste your breath trying to convince me of the evils of Islam..

          As for hate, I don’t hate ‘Westerners’ as a whole. Just people who say the Turkish intervention in 1974 that saved my family is an ‘illegal occupation’

          • LindaRivera

            You state: “Slaying infidels is a common directive in Christianity”. What a DIRTY LIE. I have read the entire Bible starting with Genesis. Both the Old and New Testaments are the eternal Word of God.

            God commands in the Bible: YOU SHALL NOT MURDER.

            God’s requirement for ALL humanity is KINDNESS:

            Bible, Micah 6:8 And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God.

            Jesus said in Matthew 7:12 Treat people the same way you want them to treat you for this is the Law and the Prophets.

            Jesus said “Blessed are the merciful for they shall receive mercy.”

    Dual citizenship is a bad ideal. There is no reciprocity in except for the British commonwealth where people from Canada Britain and Australia, New Zealand can go back & forth. But those people are basically the same culture.

    Would Mexico give Anglo or Black Americans the same right in Mexico?
    No.

    i could see many retirees moving to Mexico and the Mexican complaining because they are now a minority in their own country and being outvoted.

    If the Mexican government ever allowed vast numbers of American into Mexico and allowed them to cote, they would try to rescind the action.

    I do not thing that even Americans of Mexican ancestry would be welcome in Mexico of they came in numbers and a somewhat different in culture.

    I really can see a few hundred thousand Americans or more moving to Baja California for the beach front property and out numbering the local Mexicans. If they could vote, the Mexicans would just be raw!

    Does anyone doubt this? Can’t afford Malibu, well you can afford Baja.

    Reciprocity. give Americans the vote in Mexico. Hire some private security. Property rights. I guarantee you that Baja would be gentrified overnight.

    Turkey must NEVER be allowed to become a member of the EU! To give Turkey EU membership is an act of TREASON against Europeans and Brits. Our TRAITOR leaders heavily colonized our countries with many millions of Muslims. OUR cherished countries have been given away to the world’s Muslims! Our Christian countries belong to us. NOT infidel-hater Muslims!
    WE WANT OUR COUNTRIES BACK!

    Briton-hater, Islam-lover, Prime Minister Cameron works day and night to get Turkey into the EU! There are 74 million people in Turkey. MOST of those millions will flood Europe and Britain for FREE stuff and Muslim CONQUEST!

    Calgary imam to Muslims: “Go home”

    BY FARZANA HASSAN ,TORONTO SUN

    FIRST POSTED: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2013 08:19 PM EDT | UPDATED: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2013 08:23 PM EDT

    Syed Soharwardy, of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, in Mississauga in 2012. (CHRIS DOUCETTE/TORONTO SUN)Article

    A prominent Calgary imam, Syed Soharwardy of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, recently declared that many Muslims should go back to their Muslim-majority homelands.

    It is against Islam, he said, for Muslims to migrate to non-Muslim countries for the purpose of economic betterment.

    On his Facebook page, later relayed through the website Blazing Cat Fur, Imam Soharwardy wrote, “Muslims never migrated to non-Muslim countries for economic reasons, looking for good jobs and better life style. In fact, this is against Islam’s reasons for migration towards a non-Muslim country. Please go back.”

    He’s right. In fact, conventional Muslim belief holds migration to non-Muslim countries to be a major sin, except when the faithful have the opportunity to proselytize and work toward establishing sharia law. They can stay on if their presence in any non-Muslim land does not result in apostasy or bar them from discharging their religious obligations.

    Clearly, many orthodox Muslims are already working hard at proselytizing. The results are obvious.

    Many Canadian Muslims call stridently for prayer spaces, burka accommodations, workplace faith provisions and demands to bend public school curricula to fit Muslim belief and practice. Added to this is the Islamist assault on free speech, particularly when it comes to criticism of Islam. Behind it all hovers the forbidding cloud of sharia.

    Most Canadians would probably agree that sharia-peddling Muslims ought to go back to Muslim countries anyway.

    What surely would not surprise Soharwardy is that many Muslims — even fundamentalist ones — are in Western lands to flee the tyranny of sharia and religious extremism.

    They know that here, they can practice their own version of Islam without danger of being blown to pieces.

    How nice it would be if, in exchange for repatriated Muslim extremists, Christian communities from countries like Pakistan and Nigeria could be invited to live in Canada.

    These minorities endure routine persecution by fundamentalists. Christians in Muslim countries like Pakistan are mere dhimmis. This means they must pay the jizya tax, or risk being slaughtered by Islamic radicals who wish to purge “infidels”.

    This week, Pakistan witnessed its worst ever carnage against Christians outside All Saints Church in Peshawar, when eighty-five Christian worshippers were massacred.

    To be fair, Soharwardy has denounced this vicious attack on Christians.

    But this imam, who tends to be sensationalist in his public pronouncements, also once declared that Muslims in the West were being persecuted like Jews prior to the Holocaust. He apparently feels Muslims here suffer the way Christians do in Muslim lands.

    But surely, setting off a suicide vest outside a Pakistani church cannot be compared to throwing a severe glance at a woman wearing a hijab in a Calgary mall.

    Whatever Soharwardy’s reasons for wanting to send many Muslims home, it is clear that orthodox Muslims must be aware of these unequivocal rules on Muslims migrating to non-Muslim lands.

    We have no reason to fear the influence of Muslims who cherish Western laws based on democratic and egalitarian principles.

    However, active and orthodox Muslims schooled in rulings such as the above must either return to Islamic countries or preach Islam here.

    As it is, Muslims are migrating to Western countries in droves.

    We can be sure many will work tirelessly to spread the faith.

    Look at all this anti-whitism. In the 60′s, anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in millions of non-whites. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE. That makes it genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white. /watch?v=lKDeyuM0-Og

    Muslim Turks perpetrated the most barbaric, INHUMAN genocide and enslavement of 2.5 million Armenian and Assyrian Christians.
