Germany: Ex-president slams anti-Islam sentiment
Former German President Christian Wulff spoke against growing anti-Islam sentiment in the country and stressed that Islam belonged to Germany, contrary to what far-right parties claim.
"When 3 million Muslims live in our country, they belong together with their religion Islam to our country, " Wulff said Thursday in Berlin at the Foreign Correspondents' Association in Germany (VAP).
He sharply criticized the draft party program of the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany, AfD, Party, which warned against the "Islamization of Germany" and called for the banning of Muslim symbols, including minarets.
