Merkel Ally Proposes 'Church Tax' On Muslims
by Jacob Bojesson
German politicians are calling for new "Islam laws" to combat possible radicalization of the country's growing Muslim population.
Alexander Radwan, Christian Social Union (CSU) member of the German parliament, is calling for a "church tax" on Muslims to prevent homegrown extremism in German mosques. The tax would make up a certain percentage of a Muslim's income and be used to fund the activities of the German mosques.
"If you stop foreign funding of mosques, of course you have to provide sufficient funding here in Germany," Radwan told Suddeutsche Zeitung Tuesday.
