Download Ich will nicht mehr schweigen: Der Islam, der Westen und die by Elham Manea PDF

By Elham Manea

*Mutiges Plädoyer einer jungen Muslimin für einen modernen Islam
Dürfen muslimische Mädchen aus religiösen Gründen von Klassenfahrten ausgeschlossen werden? Ist es in Ordnung, wenn schon Sechsjährige verschleiert sind, weil Muslime »nun mal anders« sind? Nein, denn Menschenrechte sind wichtiger als faith. Der Westen muss sie klar vertreten und dort, wo sie in Frage gestellt werden, energisch verteidigen. Falsch verstandene Toleranz führt zu Gleichgültigkeit und fördert Parallelgesellschaften, zementiert Vorurteile und arbeitet den Extremisten in die Hände. Mit ihrem Plädoyer für eine Toleranz, die Grenzen kennt, gibt Elham Manea der schweigenden Mehrheit der Muslime eine Stimme.
