Court Forbids Muslim Student from Praying in Berlin School
by Stephen Brown
Germany's leftist school teachers are breathing a tremendous sigh of relief – at least for the moment – due to a court ruling last week that forbids a Muslim student from praying in his Berlin school. German leftists, who used multiculturalism to get Christianity out of the public schools, were relieved Leipzig's federal administrative court prevented Islam from filling the vacuum they created when it decreed the school had a right to prevent students from performing the Muslim mid-day prayer ritual, since it could disturb school peace.
"This is not a verdict against Islam," stated Der Spiegel, Germany's largest news publication, in hailing the decision. "It is a verdict for the sensible separation of state and religion."
The ruling's only drawback, however, was that the court stressed its decision applied only to this one school and not to the whole country.
