German Officials Call for Compulsory Islam Classes in Schools After ISIS Axe Attack on Train

ISIS Germany

Witness the suicide of a once great nation. After an Islamic ISIS radical attacked innocent people on a train with an axe in Germany two days ago, wounding four passengers, German officials are now calling for compulsory Islam classes in schools.

The world has truly gone mad.

Calls for compulsory school Islam classes after axe attack

Local authorities are calling for classes on Islam to be brought in at schools across the country after a radicalized Muslim youth attacked passengers on a train with an axe on Monday.

“It is appropriate to bring in classes on Islam in state schools or schools overseen by the state,” Gerd Landsberg, head of the association of local councils, told the Rheinische Post on Wednesday.

In this way the state can gain more control over the upbringing of Muslim youths, Landsberg said.

On Monday evening, an attacker whom investigators believe was a 17-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, seriously wounded four people with an axe and is reported to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) several times.

Terror group Isis later released a video in which the youth made threats in Pashto while holding a knife.

Senior figures in the church had already called at the end of May for Islam classes to become compulsory at schools.

The head of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, said that religious education was the best way to immunize Muslim youths against the dangers of Islamist fundamentalism.

The logic here is completely upside down.

Instead of requiring everyone to learn about Islam in schools, how about not taking in refugees who are potential terrorists?

Appeasement does not work.
