Islamization instead of Advent: as a "cultural project", Linz city center is being lit with muzzzin calls throughout Advent.
(Vienna) From the 2nd to the 23rd of December the OK-Square in the Austrian city of Linz will be lit with loudspeaker muezzin calls during Islamic prayer time. The period of time covers Christian Advent exactly and goes from the First Sunday of Advent until the day before Christmas Eve. An "art project" with a clear antichristian and pro-Islamic thrust, because Islam has nothing to do with Advent.
The OK Square is part of the pedestrian zone of Linz city center. In the Advent season, the masses are bustling there. It is named after the Open House of Culture Upper Austria (OK), which is owned and operated by the state of Upper Austria.
In 1972, the Ursuline Order sold the Baroque monastery and its church, which had been abandoned by the Order, to the land of Upper Austria, which in 1977 became a regional cultural center. The goal: To promote cultural workers and introduce the population to culture.
Linz in the stranglehold between real and "artistic" virtual Islamization
At the end of the 1980s, part of the site was also home to the Open House of Culture founded by the Province of Upper Austria, whose artistic and commercial director is Martin Sturm. The Governor (Prime Minister) of Upper Austria has been without interruption since the war, the bourgeois-Christian Democratic Austrian People's Party (ÖVP).
The political left, currently with only 30 percent weaker than ever, could never win the majority in the parliament. However, the cultural scene is largely in their hands. [As usual]
The country is governed by the proportional system, since the end of 2015, the government has been responsible to the ÖVP and the national-conservative Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ). It is difficult to imagine that especially the FPÖ, but also the ÖVP agrees to this Islamization of the country disguised as an "art project,” which is also an obviously provocative counterpoint to the Christian Advent. The intention of the initiators seems to want to deny the real Islamization by a virtual Islamization. The of the conflict is indeed part of the standard program of leftist do-gooders in terms of Islamization.
What will the Catholic Bishop of Linz say about this?
A “cultural project" in which the pedestrian zone of a state capital would be sonicated with Christian prayer would be unthinkable in modern Austria. The media, especially public broadcasting (ORF), and the state-run cultural workers would pour tons of mockery and ridicule about it and about the artists, cultural leaders and responsible politicians. Islamization, on the other hand, is of concern to the same circles because they are primarily concerned with the fight against Christianity and their own identity. Everything foreign is better than one's own.
The "cultural project" fits the fact that the green group chairwoman (Klubobfrau) in the city council of Linz announced: "There is no Christmas party at our party", and this thinking also prevails, as in the event run by her social club, Exit-sozial, which - allegedly - out of Consideration for the Islamic clientele - abolished the Christmas party.
The fight against Nicholas celebrations, which have been running for years in municipal kindergartens, completes the picture.
30 percent of Linz's elementary school students are Muslims
According to a recent survey in Linz, German is the mother tongue of only one third of kindergarten children. In the second largest city of Upper Austria, in Wels, even more of a quarter. How many of the foreign-language children are Muslims is not known. There are many who feel it, and the tendency is rising rapidly. The FPÖ Municipal Council of Linz, Peter Stumptner, warned in May 2018: "Austrians could become a minority in Linz". In fact, they are already, as the numbers show for the mother tongue, because today's children are the future and grow up in a few years.
Austrians among already a minority among children
Austrians among the children in Linz already a minority
Media reports of the "horror" at upper Austrian elementary schools and the fact that at Linz elementary schools Ramadan Islamic religious rules must be learned ("who does not want, must go to the principal!"). Catholic church officials find nothing wrong with teaching "Allah" songs to children at schools in Linz. As early as 2006, Islamic parents in a primary school in Linz demanded a headscarf requirement for the non-Muslim teachers of their children.
To the general amusement of the left
In 2007, 11.6 percent of all elementary school students in Upper Austria were Muslims, in 2017 16.3 percent. That means an increase of over 40 percent in only ten years. The figures for the city of Linz have not been published. If, however, the ratio of the current proportion of foreigners in Upper Austria (12.3 percent) and in the city of Linz (23 percent) is applied to the elementary schools, this means that already over 30 percent of all elementary school students in Linz are Muslims.
The well-known German criminologist Christian Pfeiffer presented in early 2018 the results of a survey of Muslim students in Lower Saxony, who revealed Islamist tendencies on a grand scale. Thus, one-third of Muslim students can "well imagine fighting for Islam and risking my life". The proportion of those who even welcomed terrorist attacks in the "fight against the enemies of Islam" was correspondingly high.
In the past, there were repeated publicity campaigns in the streets of Linz on radical street groups. Sometimes they were even "Christian" camouflaged, such as the "Jesus exhibition" of the Salafist IERA (Islamic Education and Research Academy) last May, with which they tried to recruit new members in downtown Linz. Incidentally, in the immediate vicinity of the OK-Platz, where now the call to prayer is to sound. Already at that time, questions arose, such as those of the Linz ÖVP council Martin Hajart, who had approved the event. The same question arises now with the "art project", which seems to call itself "Muezzin instead of Advent" according to the motto: "Muezzin is called, Advent is over".
Of course, everything is covered with a discussion on the question: "How much religion can the public space tolerate?" To the amusement of the left intellectual scene.
The political message behind "virtual" Islamization is clear - and it supports real Islamization.
