While the German state of Hesse has just shelved its schooling cooperation with the Islamic union of Ditib, the state Rhineland-Palatinate has thrashed out a new one. Ditib is the German dependancy of the Diyanet, the Religion Ministry of Turkey, responsible for telling our Turks what they shall believe. In “laicist” Turkey the public is supposed to have faith in the holy, true and eternal creed of whatever the government tells them. In our post-Kemalist age this divine wisdom comes from the mouth and mind of President Recep Erdogan who has stronger ties to other Muslim groups, notably the Muslim Brotherhood, than to Western nations. The shift of the only Islam from the Kemalist pro-European spirituality to the Erdogan pro-Arabic sunna, clashes with the leftist “secular” idea of bullying school children into their own set of believes. Two very “honest,” “secular” and “Western” cultures are struggling for dominance over classrooms and mosques.
