Ironical: Germany Bans Islamofascist Groups
Germany has banned three Islamist groups which have a goal of replacing democracy with Islamic law:
Germany said on Wednesday it had banned three Islamist Salafist groups which officials said aimed to sweep aside democracy and set up a system based on Sharia Islamic law. The interior ministry said the bans, which come amid stepped-up observation of the Salafist community in Germany, took effect early Wednesday in the western states of Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia. The targeted organizations are "DawaFFM" and "Islamische Audios", as well as "An-Nussrah", which is part of the "Millatu Ibrahim" group that was already banned in June, a ministry statement said. Searches were carried out at the homes of 20 people and property was seized, it added.The reason this is ironical is that banning political groups is itself an act of fascism, even when the groups you ban are themselves antithetical to freedom. And yes, I know the Germans ban all such movements dating back to their Nazi past, but I just like the idea of some bureaucrat deciding which political movements are okay and which are against the law. Today a bunch of Salaafi thugs who want to ban alcohol, tomorrow who's to say it won't be the Tea Party? Oh well, even though I'm against such move in principle it's hard to be moved to anger when the groups being oppressed kinda deserve a good ass kicking.

At the time, the Nazis were allied with the people who would eventually form the basis for today's Islamism, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas. To the Germans, the Islamists must look remarkably like Nazis in religious garb.

And as President Polk said, "the Constitution is not a suicide girls poster." (And by 'asked to leave' i mean 'abandoned in the sahara.')

I take this as a smear against the great German people. An ally of America.
If it isn't a smear then please explain why you believe a modern industrial free country who bans a radical group dedicated to changing their government is an IRONY.

If you register in Germany as anything other than an atheist, the state collects a tithe as well as a tax, and distributes it to your church.
In order to not give state funds to undesirables, like Scientologists, and violent islamics, the German government needs to classify them as a criminal organization, and not a church.
