Download e-book for iPad: Die Panikmacher: Die deutsche Angst vor dem Islam (German by Patrick Bahners

By Patrick Bahners

In Deutschland geht eine Panik um: Menschen mit islamischer Glaubenszugehörigkeit und Migrationshintergrund bringen das Land in Gefahr! Aber geben wirklich sie berechtigten Grund für diese Panik, oder ist nicht vor allem eine populistische Islamkritik dafür verantwortlich, dass sich die Stimmung im Land verändert? Sie argumentiert mit einem geschlossenen procedure von Vorurteilen, das die Verachtung ganzer gesellschaftlicher Gruppen salonfähig macht und Lösungen souffliert, die in Wahrheit praxisfern und menschenrechtswidrig sind. Diese Panikmache ist das Thema der brillanten Streitschrift von Patrick Bahners.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Necla Kelek, Alice Schwarzer, Henryk M. Broder, Thilo Sarrazin, Ralph Giordano gehören zu den lautesten Beschwörern einer angeblichen Bedrohung, die von den in Deutschland lebenden Muslimen ausgeht. Doch sind ihre Argumente überhaupt empirisch belegt und schlüssig? Stehen ihre pauschalisierenden Angriffe auf eine andere faith im Einklang mit dem perfect einer liberalen und toleranten Gesellschaft, auf deren Verteidigung sich die gleichen Kritiker berufen? Und worauf genau wollen sie eigentlich hinaus? Patrick Bahners, Feuilletonchef der «Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung», verharmlost nicht die Herausforderungen der Integration, aber er korrigiert die falschen Behauptungen der Islamkritik und zeigt, wie sich unter dem Deckmantel der Geistesfreiheit in Wahrheit zunehmend eine Kultur der Intoleranz ausbreitet. Sein Buch ist der dringend fällige Einspruch dagegen, dass in Deutschland fremdenfeindliche Stimmungsmache beim Thema Islam die Oberhand gewinnt.
