1100 participants at Islamist demo in Hamburg

More than 1,000 demonstrators followed the call for a rally by Islamists in Hamburg on Saturday. In the St. Georg district they protested against an allegedly Islamophobic policy and media campaign in Germany. There were slogans on posters like: “Germany = dictatorship of values” or “Caliphate is the solution”.

The rally was secured by a large police presence. There were no incidents. The police put the number of participants at 1,100.

The organizers repeatedly asked the demonstrators to shout “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”). Speakers accused politicians and the media of “cheap lies” and “cowardly reporting” that were intended to brand all Muslims in Germany as Islamists against the backdrop of the Gaza war.

According to information from the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the person who registered the rally is the Muslim Interaktiv group, which is classified as definitely extremist.

Muslim Interaktiv had already organized a demonstration in St. Georg at the end of October despite the ban. In February last year, the group mobilized 3,500 people to a rally against the burning of the Koran in Sweden.
