Cardinal and German Muslims in spat

The Central Council of Muslims in Germany rejects accusations of Cologne's Cardinal Joachim Meisner, that the representatives of Islam in Germany would not disassociate themselves from anti-Christian violence in Africa. "Cardinal Meisner is either taken in by extremist agitators," said the chairman of the Central Council of German Muslims, Aiman ​​Mazyek to the "New Osnabrück newspaper" according to a preliminary report. "Or did he speculate without the knowledge of his church community."

Mazyek said that the Central Council of German Muslims had released on Boxing Day, an unambiguous statement on the attacks on Christians in Nigeria. "Just recently, we have jointly declared that the Koran itself clearly forbids attacks on churches, synagogues and mosques during war ," he said. From a church leader he expects fairness. "Besides, I am still waiting from him for a condemnation of terrorism in Nigeria - and the Christian organization akhwat Akwop" said Mazyek. They were responsible for killing 20 Muslims during prayer for Ramadan and in the past year alone, set five mosques and 50 houses on fire.
