Michael Stürzenberger: Six Months in Prison for Posting a Photo of a Nazi and the Mufti on Facebook

Long-time readers are familiar with Michael Stürzenberger, the stalwart Islam-critic who campaigned tirelessly against the proposed mega-mosque in Munich. He is also well-known for work on behalf of Die Freiheit and his writings at Politically Incorrect.

Today Mr. Stürzenberger was sentenced to six months in prison for posting a photo of a Nazi and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem on his Facebook page.

This was not a photoshop job, mind you. The picture was not digitally altered. It was a simple historical artifact from World War Two.

Six months in the slammer for that.

So someone tell me: why is Russia the big bad fascist bogeyman here in the USA? Why doesn’t Germany at least get a shot at that title?

The following report by Egri Nök was posted earlier today at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

Germany: Journalist Sentenced to Six Months Jail for Publishing Historic Photo

by Egri Nök

GERMANY – A district court in Munich earlier today sentenced the German journalist Michael Stürzenberger to six months in jail and an additional 100 hours of charitable work for publishing this photo in his Facebook timeline.

It shows a Nazi and Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, shaking hands in 1941 in Berlin.

Along with the photo, he had written a review of an article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, ‘Hakenkreuz und Halbmond’ (“Swastika and Crescent Moon”) about the National Socialists’ admiration for Islam, and mentioned his own review [of that Süddeutsche article in PI-News].

For this post, in particular the photo, the court found Stürzenberger guilty of “disseminating the propaganda of anti-constitutional organizations”.

The prosecution had accused Stürzenberger of “inciting hatred towards Islam” and “denigrating Islam” by publishing the photo. A superficial onlooker, the prosecution argued, could not know that this black and white photo in Stürzenberger’s timeline was a historical document.

According to PI-News, the sentence might be handed down as a suspended sentence for three and a half years.

Things you won’t see on TV: The German-Turkish Non-Aggression Pact, June 18 1941

Thank you Ava Lon for translating Stürzenberger’s original FB post:

The realization that Islam is a fascist ideology was made presentable two years ago by the Egyptian political scientist Hamed Abdel-Samad with his book Islamic Fascism. Even though this was already clear to former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (“The Koran is the Mein Kampf of the Prophet Mohammed”), but political correctness has long prevented this fact from being openly stated. The Bavarian interior minister Joachim Herrmann has now also jumped on that train and compares Mein Kampf with the warlike announcements of the Islamic state that can be read on the Internet. From there to the Koran is only a small step, which he doesn’t dare yet take. The Süddeutsche Zeitung, in an article on Friday, describes the Nazi pact with Islam and also quotes important statements by Himmler and Hitler. More information at Politically Incorrect.

  1. First anarchy, Germany during the 1920s, then tyranny, Germany during the 1930s, then annihilation, Germany during the 1940s. You would think that we would take a clue from these two self destructive ideologies shaking hands.
    Nope, this time it will be different, God help us all, it really is different this time, and much worse. Oy vey!!

  2. This is insane. This proves beyond doubt Germany is now a rogue state just like North Korea. How can a picture of Hitler not be historical? So he is still alive then? These superficial onlookers must pretty dumb.

      • well, the sentence is on probation and he will certainly appeal and win. A 100 hours of social work? What about cleaning faeces spattered loos in asylum hostels?The charity ASB has published adds for that job.
        And btw, can I still be sued because I used history textbooks with similar images during my teaching?And I got paid for this.

  3. The pace of events is accelerating such that it is now virtually impossible to absorb, analyse and determine a course of action or viable response before the next event arrives.

    This is a sure sign that chaos is upon us and that our descent into darkness is hard by the door and pushing with all its might.

    To arms, mes ami, for you now have no other choice left open to you other than a future of slavery , death or violent resistance.

    To counter attack with any available means at your disposable is the only call you have left and that call is yours alone. As one of my namesakes once said “You cannot enslave a man who is prepared to die.

    • I still defy to believe that all these absurd, bizarre events are really happening – so Kafkaesque is the situation west of Karlsbad.

      And yes – the pace of onslaught on the Western Europe is accelerating counter to my expectations of slow, monotone decay. The European politicians seem to still not get it – but I do not believe it any more: they willfully aid and abet the enemy who is inside the gates.

      So how many more years before a complete submission or eruption of dissenting citizens?

      Barely a decade.

      • oh the European politicians get it. what is happening is exactly what they planned, the creation of a dictatorship. I don’t know when people are going to stop believing that these politicians are innocent rubes and recognize them for the evil totalitarians they are.

        • Exactly! “The problem dear Brutus is not in our stars but in ourselves. That we are underlings.”

          Seneca III above suggests the only solution this side of divine intervention that offers reversal of that last part of Shakespeare’s line.

        • dictatorship? over whom?

          Islam is not going to be dictated to by anyone. These leaders will all be removed pronto once the rising caliphate takes over europe. Atheism can not provide any legitimate resistance to Islam. The only legitimate force that can defeat Islam is Christian based government and a Christ centered army which i dont see happening in europe any time soon. A fully Christian converted Russia, maybe.

          are you suggesting that at some Point X, these same leaders who are betraying their people, are going to turn against Islam?

    • Congratulations! You just successfully summed up the “bright” future await us in a single sentence…

  4. What ever happened to ‘speaking truth to power’? Or is that yesterdays cause célebré?

  5. >>The prosecution had accused Stürzenberger of “inciting hatred towards Islam” and “denigrating Islam” by publishing the photo. A superficial onlooker, the prosecution argued, could not know that this black and white photo in Stürzenberger’s timeline was a historical document.<<

    Beggars belief. 1984 is here: truth is a lie.

    • There are two kinds of people who would see that photo, those who know it is a historical document and those with no idea what they were looking at. One could hardly be accused of disseminating anything unconstitutional to the latter.

    • We in the US are still “enjoying” our 1st … how long god knows. What is transpiring in Germany now is very similar to what I know from my young years in the communist Central Europe: dissent with the official views of the Communist Party was punishable by losing one’s job or out-rightly criminalized by a jail sentence.

      There is one big difference, though: we all back in the day knew that the pathetic, lying communist establishment would go to hell sooner or later – which it did.

      Whether jihad, hijra, treasonous indigenous left and ongoing submissions are of the same transient kind, that I do not know.

      I actually do: IT IS NOT.

      • Excellent pithy remark! The Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz is the reconstitution of the People’s Court–to rival the Sharia Court throughout Germany.

        Supporters of Michael Sturzenberger should begin sporting White Roses as an expression of affiliation and protest. Let the Court declare white roses to be “unconstitutional”.

        Perhaps, THAT will rile people to action!!! Alas, perhaps not.

  6. Oh, screw Islam. It is a backward religion and everyone knows it (unless they are retarded), but we aren’t allowed to say it, I guess. Well I will say it and you can arrest me if you can find me in the hinterlands of Kansas.

    1984 is behind us, Sir. We are now looking at much worse if I’m not mistaken. It isn’t going to get better until enough people are willing to stand up and call it what it is. They are welcome to their religion but not welcome to push it on others.

  7. After fake news, fake history, we have reached phase 3, fake jurisdiction.
    The judge claims that it is not relevant what the defendant said,
    but how the public could have perceived it.

    Since the truth will always offend Muslims,
    the truth has been banned by the German jurisdiction.

  8. germany – a curse on europe since 1870. I keep on being told how clever germans are because of their industry but then you look at their continual attempts to destroy europe to realise that they are a bunch of suicidal morons

  9. Truth is intrinsically sacred and vital to human beings. Truth is worth living and dying for.

  10. Everybody should read John Rothman’s book, “Icon of Evil.” About the Islamic/Nazi alliance.

  11. This is a very big story. Does anyone know of any independent news source that has any information on Michael Stürzenberger’s story?

  12. Germany has again become a fascist state. Again Germany is in alliance with Islam, the ideology calling for the “ausrottung” of Jews.
    Do they soon start crying “Heil Merkel!” do you think? The legal system has been turned into an ideological theater of mock trials sentencing people for political crimes when they protest against fascism. Have we seen this before? The hens have come home to roost.

  13. There are numerous other photos out there on the internet showing the Mufti with Hitler and Himmler, these images are effectively in public domain now. But none of that will sway these “thought crime” courts. Have the political classes in the West now concluded that totalitarian rule is now the only way to enforce “community cohesian” and shield muslim immigration from criticism?

  14. I hate “hate speech” laws. For this they would throw me in jail.

  15. I think its time to resurrect the wall, Merkel and her Nazi loving muslims on one side and the democratic free thinkers on the other.

  16. In 1683, Poland and the Hungarian troops saved Vienna from the Sunni Turks.Right now Poland and Hungary are carrying the fight to save Europe, again.
