The school administration says: “It is an important part of our education, to awaken a preparedness within the children to deal with and tolerate foreign cultures.” But that tolerance goes only one way. The foreign culture of Islam is not willing to tolerate any others as equals.
“Child was not allowed in mosque – parents must be in court,” Google Translate of “Kind durfte nicht in Moschee – Eltern müssen vor Gericht,” SHZ.de, June 18, 2017:
Now it is official: the Rendsburg parents, whose son did not attend the mosque visit in the course of the geography lesson, landed in court. The spokesman for the Itzehoe district court, Philipp Terhorst, now confirmed the sh: z that there will be a trial in August.

The visit to the mosque was a compulsory course.
This is what the lawyer for the family, Alexander Heumann from Düsseldorf, says: “It is not a matter of ‘teaching’, but a ‘different school event’, the vestigue of which is not being sanctioned.” In the face of a multitude of islamistically motivated acts of violence – according to the lawyer in an opinion – the parents did not want “to send their child” to people who despise it as so-called unbelievers “.
