A Possible Charge of “Incitement” Against Heidi Mund for her Public Prayers

For a long time Heidi Mund was known outside of Germany only as the “brave German woman” for her protest against a prayer being chanted by an imam inside a Lutheran church. Ms. Mund was thrown out of the church for her efforts, and the video of her ejection went viral on the Internet.

A faithful Christian, Heidi Mund has been involved in other anti-Islamization activities since then. The most recent was a “prayer at the borders” action in early October, which has now drawn the attention of the judicial authorities. According to the Frankfurter Rundschau, the public prosecutor in Frankfurt is considering an action against Ms. Mund, viewing her publicly organized prayers as incitement.

Many thanks to SimonXML for translating this article. A slightly different version was published earlier at Vlad Tepes:

State Prosecutor determined to act against Heidi Mund

The State prosecutor has become active against Heidi Mund — the accusation is incitement

The State prosecutor has decided to take action for incitement against Heidi Mund, who became famous as a radical Christian. She was reported to have committed these acts with her “Prayer proposals” on the Day of German Unity.

Since Heidi Mund shifted her political agitation from the street to the Internet, barely a day goes by without a message to her followers. The former front woman of the “Freien Bürger” (Free Citizens) and “Pegida Rhein Main” has set up another mailing list — “Save Europe” — which has explicitly set itself the goal of saving Germany from Islam.

On the Day of German Unity, Mund called for a human chain around Germany “as a spiritual wall”, … and with the “authority of God” to resist the “forces of darkness”.

The radical Christian called her appeal for an act of resistance “Praying hand in hand for our country”, which took place on 3 and 4 October with moderate involvement — and on 4 October a private complaint followed against Heidi Mund. Her “suggestions for prayer” met the requirements for incitement, states the complaint.

In it she calls to prayer and calls amongst other things for:

“We pray FOR the genuine refugees that they get renewed hope for their lives that our LORD comforts them … against the mass immigration of 90% of young Muslim men who should build up their own home countries and not rape our girls and women here; that with the Word of God — the Bible — they be sent back to their home countries where they belong. … Against the diseases and epidemics the immigrants have brought with them …. We ask God … the Angel that He places on the borders of Germany and the other European countries.”

As the press office of the Criminal Investigation Department explained upon request, the Frankfurt prosecutor’s office has taken up the matter for legal analysis. However it will not make any details known at this time.

  1. Incitement.

  2. I watched the PEGIDA Hymn tonight on You Tube and was moved to tears by what I saw in the video. What is happening in Europe is disgraceful and shameful. The only Europeans that seem to be aware of the dangers are the V4 countries. The continent is filled with traitors and evil people pretending to be leaders. Maybe God will forgive them but it is almost a sure bet that the citizens of Germany, Austria, England, France, etc. will not. I can not figure out who I think is worse, Mrs. Merkel or the weak men that follow her. May God Bless Ms. Mund for her strength and courage. She is definitely right that the women and children of Germany need all the prayers we can give them, they will suffer the most from this outrageous assault foisted on them by the monsters that were elected to protect them.

    • This same thing is happening in the United States. It is only going to get worse, until the people start speaking out, against radical Islam, and their out right assault on our religious freedom….This is our country, and we have a constitution, and the first amendment, which is suppose to protect us.
      Our leaders also have failed us, it is unlawful what is happening.

      • Indeed, it is all of Islam. It’s in the Koran/Quran, embedded in the very structure of the ideology.

        As a member of “the people,” yesterday I sent the following email to my Congressman. The subject line was: “H.Res.569 – Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States”

        Dear Rep. [lastname]:

        Please *oppose* this most un-American of House Resolutions, H.Res.569. A quick read of its summary, with a simple mental substitution of the words “Jewish,” “Christian,” or similar will show its fundamental incompatibility with our First Amendment freedoms of speech and expression.

        Islam is an ideology which seeks “specialness”:

        –Islam seeks exemption from Constitutional law (recently, 51% of American Muslims expressed a preference for living under Sharia rather than Constitutional law),
        –exemption from discussion and/or criticism of their beliefs (remember the art of Mapplethorpe, with a cross in a container of urine? that one received a National Endowment for the Arts grant!), and
        –exemption from protection under regular laws against violence.

        Please please please vote NO, should this un-American House Resolution 569 make it out of the House Committee on the Judiciary onto the floor. House Res. 569 was introduced by Rep. Beven (D-Va-8) on 17 December 2015.

        On another note, I am pleased to address you as “Rep. [lastname]”; receiving your newsletter last week was a bit disconcerting, because you were referred to as “[firstname]” throughout. My personal friends are “[firstname]”; my Congressional Representative serves a broader (dare I say higher?) function in civic life.

        Thank you.

        ==> Anyone who would like to rephrase my email is welcome to do so! There was a post here at GoV a few days ago re. House Res. 569, introduced 12/17/15. Be sure not to refer to “HR569,” which is a whole ‘nother beast having to do with funding certain services for veterans.

  3. I have a son that is a militaristic atheist. He claims that our country was not founded on Christian principles and that Thomas Jefferson proves it.
    I asked him recently why he thinks Christmas is a Federal holiday.
    He didn’t have an answer.

  4. God bless this brave Christian woman. Meanwhile in other news you can read of Muslim youths disrupting a Christmas Service in Munchengladbach by running down the aisle shouting “[befouled] Christians” No major media cover, complete silence from Muslim elders, but a suggestion of (useless) multi-faith interventional meetings. This is by no means an isolated anti – Christian incident in Germany either. The confidence and self entitlement of these so called refugees is truly staggering, shop-lifting is unchallenged, non payment of rail or bus fares is unchallenged, sexual assaults are unchallenged, physical assaults are unchallenged, and worst of all most rapes are unlikely to end in a conviction. They have exported their third world hell hole into your once thriving, peaceful Germany, for pity’s sake start fighting back, getting rid of the odious Frau Merkel would be a start. Do not let this brave lady be convicted because if you do you are truly lost!

    • The “refugees” are human WMDs. Much has been made of the size of the German population (approx. 80 million) relative to the no. of refugees. That overlooks the fact that Germany’s population consists of men, women and children of all ages whereas the refugees are mostly men of fighting age. There are probably no more than 10 million German men fit to serve in a conflict situation and most of them would have to interrupt studies and career to do so.

      • And how many of those are sitzpinklers who have been emasculated by feminism (which is very strong in northern Europe), and couldn’t even fight a chipmunk?

        • Yes. I’ve heard it said that in any Muslim protest/riot in Europe, what’s noticeable is that all the angry young men look like they’ve been spending all their time in the gym. Given that many of them are sitting on welfare, this seems possible. Whereas for the average German, English or other European corporate slave, it certainly isn’t.

    • Germans have the right under the Basic Law (Grundgesetz) to resist anyone who seeks to undermine the free-democratic basic order of the State (freiheitlich-demokratischer Grundordnung). That might include taking action against the Prosecutor.

    • Great summary, G.J. Davies.

      Two astonishing phenomena: 1. How we tolerate this medieval belief system that encourages the worst in mankind…for more than a second. And 2. How so many of us go along with this because of deficits in courage.

      People, humans, us…are definitely imperfect and our evolution incomplete. Most of us are “good” but we lack courage. Always be leery of people reacting in groups.

      • Another astonishing phenomenon: How some quasi-conservatives who purport to be highly educated and rational (e.g. Michael Medved) can insist that it’s wrongheaded to call for restricting Muslim immigration, since “most Muslims in America are peaceful”; and how others of similar mindset say the same thing because (allegedly) “some of the best tips for thwarting terrorism come from Muslims, and my Muslim friend says that 99.5% of Muslims detest the radicals! And what about religious freedom?”

        So: Let’s import more Muslims because some of them might help us keep on eye on the bad ones who inevitably come in with them!

        And let’s ignore what masses of average Muslims are doing to European cities (because “we do better at integrating Muslims here!”); and let’s disregard the nonviolent pressure that Muslims exert to bring our society gradually into compliance with Islamic demands; and by all means let’s not look into what’s really being preached in mosques, or what long-range agendas the Islamic pressure groups are pursuing — because all that would (they say) violate our open, tolerant values!

        • Since my post there have been further reports of some 1,000 men of Arab and North African appearance carrying out serious sexual assaults and rape on German women at Cologne station on New Year’s Eve. Most of the men were believed be heavily intoxicated. Is there anyway that these vile crimes can be taken up by a human rights lawyer on behalf of these violated woman and landed at Frau Merkel’s door?

        • Rade-

          There is nothing special about the preaching going on in particular mosques. The comments about the superiority of the believer over the kuffar and hatred for the kuffar are right there in the first lines of the Koran, as well as the prayers they recite five times a day.

          Consider the implications of a culture reciting those prayers five times a day for 1400 years. What do you think that does to the collective mind and spirit of a culture? To me, the implications are terrifying.

        • And, of course, none of these Muslim friends would *ever* practice taqiyya! [lying to improve the image of Islam to non-believers]

          Nothing a Muslim says to you, unless you too are a Muslim, can be believed. Sad to say, but there it is. Look up taqiyya.

    • Lands in which German is spoken have heretofore given Christianity some of its greatest proponents, before Schism, after Schism, and after the Reformation.

      But without Holy Hieromartyr Boniface, Wonderworker in Devon and Equal to the Apostles, none of it would have been possible. He and his disciples/co-evangelists traveled from Christian Anglo-Saxon “England” and converted many of the formerly pagan Germanic tribes to Christianity.

      St. Boniface commemorated on 5 June. Thought to have been born ca. 675; known to have been martyred 754.

  5. It is out in the open now. “They” can pray on the streets but we may not. TPTB in Europe, with some honourable exceptions, are determined to impose Islam upon us.

    On a (slightly) lighter note, what is wrong with Islamophobia? The epithet is thrown like an insult but why should we not be afraid of Islam? Some people have arachnophbia and so what? Unlike fear of spiders, fear of Islam is well-founded and entirely justified.

  6. She is a voice in the wilderness. Germans have become a godless and decadent society that will persecute and prosecute her.

  7. Let them prosecute her. Let the absurdity of the German legal system be shown to the world. If there’s any significant amount of Germans with a moral backbone left, she’ll get plenty of support. Alternatively, she can seek asylum in Poland.

  8. Last year, the Mayor of Oslo proclaimed that the culture enriching immigrants and refugees would turn Norway into “the new America”.

    Ridiculously, Herr Stang saw no difference between the mainly Christian legal immigrants with a solid work ethic from Europe and Scandinavia, and the dross from ME and north and west Africa, who have left their homes because they had not succeeded, owned nothing, and had no skills.

    Europe’s gain?

  9. Germans are so incredibly insecure about “their” National Socialist Nazi past (remember that almost nobody alive today was a Nazi and only around 30% of the voting eligible population voted for Naizs) that they’re rapidly racing toward an (Islamo)Nazi future. Germany is truly the perfect target for Islam due to this deep rooted insecurity about “persecuting” “a religion” which they apparently STILL believe to be a “race” (continuing to accept the Nazi definition).

    What’s it going to take for the leftists to sort this out? Muslims are not Jews, Muslims are Nazis. To support Islam is not to support Judiaism or “religions”, or a “minority race”, it is to support imperialist Nazi political ideology. This should be abundantly clear to anyone who reads the Quran but of course even most of those who can be bothered will come up with completely absurd denialist “interpretations” which are absolutely not shared by the vast majority of Muslims in the world.

    Perhaps the greatest problem with cultural illiteracy in this case is the failure to realize that not everyone in the world (and in fact very few outside of the historical influence of things like Protestant Christianity) has any concept of personal exegesis that might make wishful-thinking western “interpretations” of religious scripture possible. There is no personal exegesis in Islam. Personal exegesis is kufr since anything not ruled by the highest Islamic scholars is kufr and this is deserving of at least a beating if not an execution. People threatened like this their whole lives will tend to have little capacity for this sort of independent thinking that westerners take for granted. Even those not directly threatened will learn not to think through the observation of fear in those around them.

    There’s just no solving this. Short of nuclear Armageddon, the vast majority of westerners are going to continue to assume that everyone else in the world is a westerner that just eats different spicy food. Nothing short of near extinction will ever overcome this illiteracy and denial on a large scale.

    • Nimrod-

      You’ve really nailed it here. I used to think like the culturally illiterate westerners you describe.

      After spending the past three years living and working in a Muslim country, I know much better. They are almost like a different species, or beings from an alien planet.

      “They hate us ’cause they ain’t us.”

  10. the “brave German woman” for her protest against a prayer being chanted by an imam inside a Lutheran church.

    It would seem the Lutheran church has learned nothing about resisting un-Christian totalitarian ideologies after its disgraceful silence during the Nazi years. Now they are repeating the same error.

  11. To GOD(GOD THE FATHER , SON, HOLY SPIRIT) be the glory, Revelations 4:11. AMEN and AMEM!!!
