This is obviously false and ridiculous, but it’s also revealing. It shows how Muslims are going about colonizing Germany: as massive numbers of Muslim migrants continue to stream in, Muslim spokesmen, aided and abetted by the Leftist enemedia, are rewriting German history, claiming that Islam has always been there — much as Barack Obama used to claim, just as preposterously, that Islam had been part of America from the beginning. The goal is to render native Germans ignorant and complacent about being overwhelmed and replaced by another culture, that considers the laws and mores of the host country to be alien and contemptible.
“Broadcaster: Ramadan an ‘Old German Custom’ Celebrated Longer than Oktoberfest,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, May 18, 2018:
German radio broadcaster Deutschlandfunk Kultur has claimed that the Islamic holy month of Ramadan is not only an “old German custom” but that it had been celebrated in the country longer than Oktoberfest.
In an article, journalist Eren Güvercin claims that Ramadan is a thoroughly German holiday and that there is no question that Islam belongs to Germany.
Güvercin maintains that the practice is older the Oktoberfest, also known in Bavaria as Wiesn. While he provides no evidence for his assertion, the earliest Wiesn celebrations are thought to have been held on 12 October 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig, later King Ludwig I, and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen.
The oldest mosque in Germany, by contrast, was built in Berlin in 1915 and was discovered by an archaeological team in 2015. The mosque, which was made of wood, was thought to have been intended for Muslim prisoners of war as it was built inside a World War One-era prison camp.
“Fasting in the month of Ramadan has long been part of the German religious landscape. It is a German reality. To break the fast in the evening, many people gather in Germany to eat together and to meet each other,” Güvercin said.
“Islamic religious practice has long since found its home in Germany. And we German Muslims are looking forward to Ramadan in our Germany. Nobody can deny that to us,” he added….
