You see, Sedar Dedeoglu, descendant of the Prophet, has converted to Christianity. He is involved in Christian outreach to the Muslim community. That community, a community that prides itself on it's acceptance and tolerance, has threatened the lives of Sedar, his wife Husniye, and their daughter Isil. Even his own relatives are ashamed of Sedar's conversion and regard him as an apostate. The punishment for apostasy is death. His lawyer says if Sedar is returned to Turkey, he will be killed.
The German Federal Migration Office and several courts of justice have rejected Dedeoglu family asylum applications. The German authorities claim Christians in Turkey are free to practice their religion. Sedar's lawyer, Oswald Seitter, it is impossible to overlook the extraordinary danger facing the Dedeoglu family. "We should rejoice that a such a person has become a Christian, and we should avoid any actions which could put his life in additional danger," Seitter has told a news agency.
It is unfortunate that the same country that matter of factly murdered millions of human beings because of their faith would even consider denying this family safe haven. But, Islam and the German ethos have much more in common than Judaism or Christianity so it shouldn't be surprising. Andrew Bostom, writing for the American Thinker today wrote "Jung on Hitler and Islam":
Karl Jung, The Collected Works Volume 18, The Symbolic Life (1939), Princeton University Press, p. 281. The chapter is itself called "The Symbolic Life", and Jung was asked two questions, the first of which is the most relevant:
First, had he any views on what was likely to be the next step in religious development?"We do not know whether Hitler is going to found a new Islam. (He is already on the way; he is like Mohammad. The emotion in Germany is Islamic; warlike and Islamic. They are all drunk with wild god). That can be the historic future."
