Last week I reported on the Italian television presenter Giuseppe Cruciani, who lambasted the Left on his program for its refusal to identify Islam as the ideology behind incidents of “honor violence” such as the murder of Saman Abbas.
Guido Reil is a member of the European Parliament for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). In the following video clip from the floor of the EP, Mr. Reil emphasizes the importance of naming the source of slavery and violence in Bangladesh.
And what do you think that source might be? Any ideas?
|00:00||Mr. President, dear colleagues,|
|00:03||child Labour and women that work under conditions of slavery|
|00:07||in Bangladesh are unfortunately the norm. And what are we doing? We hold Sunday sermons|
|00:12||and we force our companies to control their subcontractors and their subcontractors|
|00:17||and their subcontractors in Bangladesh. That will never work.|
|00:20||We have to name the root of the problem.|
|00:23||And the root cause of the problem is: officially Bangladesh is a democracy with religious freedom,|
|00:29||but both aren’t true. Bangladesh is ruled by an autocratic regime|
|00:33||that tyrannizes the population with the help of Islamists .|
|00:38||nowhere more than in Bangladesh you’ll find child marriages,|
|00:41||violence at home against women is normal,|
|00:44||Christians and Hindus are murdered, their homes and places of worship are burned down by Islamists.|
|00:49||Trade unionists, opposition politicians and journalists are being openly murdered on the street —|
|00:54||by Islamists. We need to FINALLY name the root of this problem.|
|00:59||And the root cause is the inhumane ideology of Islam|
|01:03||Exactly this ideology that is constantly played down here and what’s more, supported and courted.|
|01:07||And that has to end; we have to name the real problems. Thank you.
