I’m dreaming of a Brown Christmas
Just like the ones we never knew
With warm Gluhwein, and dead bodies lying,
In the snow, after the death trucks have come through.
Germany is famous for its Christmas markets where charming stalls offer their guests the traditional delights of mulled wine and potato fritters. But in newly diversified Germany, other options are now available too. When celebrating Christ’s birth, you never know when you might feel the sudden urge to convert to Islam, or find out more about it. Thankfully, that option has now been thoughtfully provided at Rüdesheim Christmas market.
Not everyone is happy about it, though. Apparently, the event organiser, Peter Rehwald has been subjected to a tirade of insults from unhappy locals. Tempers are running so high that the mayor now fears for the security of the market. The Muslims running the stand, from the Ahmadiyya community, often described as the “good Muslims”, have been asked to voluntarily discontinue their participation. They are unapologetic, however, and have so far refused.
