Muslim peace march in Germany...

Post by Nightshade » Sat Jun 17, 2017 7:31 pm

Muslim 'peace march' held in Germany but turnout disappoints
A Muslim "peace march" against terrorism has been held in the German city of Cologne but has drawn fewer participants than organizers had hoped for.

The dpa news agency reported that a few hundred people gathered for the demonstration Saturday, with placards such as "Together against terror" and "Hatred makes the earth hell," and the crowd later grew to over 1,000.

The organizers had expected several thousand protesters.

The country's biggest Islamic association had refused to take part in the march. The Turkish-Islamic Union argued it would send the wrong signal by suggesting that international terrorism is mainly a Muslim problem. It also said Muslims observing the Ramadan fast couldn't be expected to march for hours in summer temperatures.

That stance drew criticism from the government, which welcomed the march.


...and most of the few marchers that showed up weren't even muslim.

maybe they're just disgusted by obsessed haters like you and decided to sit home and watch football. Seriously, who the ★■◆● but an obsessed loon gives a rats ass how many folks decided to show up for one march in one place?

Maybe it's because many of them are not unsupportive of the goals of jihadist terrorism. Others may be too frightened to show their true feelings lest they themselves be singled out by radicals for murder.

Lots of reasons why people don’t show up for marches, protest and rallies, but attendance is still the benchmark.

I'm guessing since a lot of Muslims in Germany are poor immigrants, they had to go be at work.

Or, as the link itself states, were fasting for Ramadan and didn't want to walk in the hot goddamn sun for hours on no food or drink.

Also it's comforting to see that TB still hides under the bed every time he thinks about the big bad Muslim boogieman. oooOOOooo!

The protesters decided to stay home and later exaggerate their event numbers in order to show solidarity with Trump's policies and his claims about his inaugural attendance.
