German Court Allows Sharia Police to Patrol City

Multiculturalism at its worst.

Multiculuralism is still weaving its poisonous tentacles around Germany, and with the blessing of the country's own legal system. The Times of Israel reports that a German has authorized a group of Sharia "police" to enforce Islamic law in the city of Wuppertal.

The law they were cleared of violating outlaws uniforms that are threatening, such as those of Hitler's brownshirts. 

The issue has been brewing ever since 2014, when German politicians reacted strongly to reports of young Salafists conducting nightly "Sharia police" patrols in the city, ordering people to stop various activities, according to the International Business Times.

The men were photographed wearing orange hi-visibility jackets emblazoned with the words "Sharia police" on the back.

They reportedly approached passersby near nightclubs and gambling houses to deter them from un-islamic activities such as drinking alcohol and gambling.

Ministers in Angela Merkel's coalition have denounced the actions and said that Germany would not tolerate such Sharia activity.

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere earlier said that the civilians could not patrol the streets instead of German police.

"Sharia law is not tolerated on German soil," de Maiziere told the German daily Bild.

"Nobody can take it upon themselves to abuse the good name of the German police," Maiziere added. 

The frightening issue is that sharia patrols have been operating in an array of other European cities, thus further isolating Islamic communities and exacerbating their failure to assimilate into Western culture. 

While there's nothing to stop Muslims from practicing sharia tenets in their homes, it is disturbing that an official German court legitimized, and in reality, condoned its practice on German streets.
