It Begins. Mayor Forced to Apologize After Posting Photo of Burka Cucumber

Crazy Germans.
A German mayor came under fire after she posted a photo of a cucumber that looks like a burka on social media.

The Sun reported:

The picture of the Islamic burka-like cucumber was shared on social media by Mayor Simone Stein-Lücke, who oversees the municipal district of Bad Godesberg in the former West-German capital of Bonn.

The word “Gurka” was added above the picture, as a pun on the German word for cucumber “Gurke”.

The timing of the joke by the conservative politician of the Christian-Democratic Union was unlucky, as it coincided with news that the controversial King Fahd Academy in the district, a Saudi school, would be closed.

The controversial school and mosque which was funded by Saudi Arabia had been linked with jihadist ideology by German TV programme Panorama. The Saudi Kingdom decided it would close the academy as it said it no longer saw a need for a school in a country with “one of the best education systems in the world.”
