How the German Government Supervises Islamic Schools and Mosques – Assaf Gabor
Nearly five million Muslims live in Germany today. Muslims have their own educational system where the language of instruction is Arabic, a system closely supervised by the government. Nadav Gavlinger, an Israeli with a masters degree in modern German history who is a tour guide in Berlin, says, “The German government prohibits home schooling and thoroughly supervises the content of the lessons and the textbooks used in the schools. All of the textbooks are translated into German and officials review them in order to guarantee that improper messages are not allowed to enter the students’ minds.”
    “There is also strict supervision of the mosques in Germany. In certain places the imams are asked to submit the text of their Friday sermons to the authorities in advance. Agents of the security services attend the mosques and listen to the sermons, sometimes publicly and sometimes secretly. There have been cases where imams have been removed for inciting violence or speaking against Jews.”  (Makor Rishon-Hebrew)
