We reported last summer on the case of Michael Stürzenberger, a well-known German Islam-critic and opponent of the proposed mega-mosque in Munich. In August Mr. Stürzenberger was convicted and sentenced to six months in prison for posting a photo of a Nazi official and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem on his Facebook page. That’s the photo at the top of this post, a historically accurate photo of what happened in World War Two — Jew-hating Nazis collaborating with Jew-hating Muslims.
Yesterday Mr. Stürzenberger’s conviction was overturned by a higher court. The legal process is not over for him, however; the prosecution can (and probably will) appeal the verdict at a higher level. And he is also due in court again on Friday, facing a different charge: two years ago in a speech at PEGIDA he quoted Hamed Abdel-Samad’s reference to Islam as a “fascist ideology”. Apparently that’s against the law in Modern Multicultural Germany, and he will have to answer for it.
Nevertheless, yesterday’s verdict was a victory for the Counterjihad in Germany and the rest of Western Europe. In the following interview, Michael Stürzenberger discusses his case with Vlad Tepes:
