Austria Makes New Law: Muslims Can No Longer Speak Arabic, All Muslims Must Now Speak German

By Theodore Shoebat and Walid Shoebat

Austria has just made a new law: Muslim imams will no longer be able to conduct their sermons in Arabic, but in German; all Korans will now have to be written completely in German, and Muslim groups will no longer be able to accept foreign money. I did a whole video on this:

The updated “Law on Islam,” which was prepared by the coalition of the Social Democratic Party and the People’s Party, aims to regulate how Islam is managed inside the country, and includes provisions requiring imams to be able to speak German, standardizing the Quran in the German language, and banning Islamic organizations from receiving foreign funding.

And Antichrist of Turkey, Erdogan is outraged realizing that without reading the Quran in Arabic, Islam becomes invalid since Muslims cannot worship Allah without using the Arabic as required in the Quran. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan strongly criticized Austria on Feb. 28 for approving a controversial bill that revises the status of Muslims in the European country.

“On the one hand you tell about the EU acquis, but on the other hand you take steps which totally oppose the EU acquis,” Erdoğan said at a meeting in Istanbul before his departure to Saudi Arabia for an official visit. “Turkey will make every effort to protect Muslims in Austria, especially those of Turkish descent, from being harmed due to a controversial recently approved bill regulating Islam in the country”, Turkey’s EU minister said on Feb. 26.

“We cannot accept any harm to Muslims because of this law and we will make every effort to prevent such harm,” Minister Volkan Bozkır told Anadolu Agency during a visit to Finland’s capital, Helsinki.

Interestingly, the new law is being completely backed by the Catholic Church in Austria, which represents the majority religion — Catholicism — in the country. As we read from one report:

The law met with little opposition from the overwhelmingly Roman Catholic population, was backed by Austria’s Catholic bishops, and was grudgingly accepted by the main Muslim organization. But it upset Turkey’s state religious establishment.

Why would Turkey get upset at this? Because the Antichrist wants to revive Babel, and it cannot do so without the universal language of Arabic. Why would the Catholic Church support this? Because it is of the Christian spirit to combat Babel.

    I never thought about the Arabic. I know that some can’t read in Arabic and they have to trust their imams for translations, etc. God’s ways are always best. Why, other than the antichrist reason, do they insist it must be in Arabic?
    Thank you Ted! I noticed there was no music at the end….

      If it’s in Arabic they can lie about it’s real meaning to all those who can’t understand Arabic. No more taqiyya. No more pretending that the Q’uran is peaceful when it isn’t. No more pretending that you can’t really understand Muslim scripture unless you can speak Arabic.
      No wonder they’re fuming.

        My soul is troubled and I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s just me.

        If the Koran is translated into German, the Austrian government better make sure that translation follows the Arabic exactly. It’s my understanding that the Koran is willfully mistranslated in foreign language edition to cover up some of it’s nastier teachings.

  • Cool, soon they can have the New International Version – Koran (NIVK), The Living Translation Koran (TLTK), The English Language Translation-Koran (ELTK), The New Arabic Standard Koran (NASK). The “red” letter Koran will have real meaning behind it. They can have an entire page dedicated to their accomplishments interwoven into the fabric of America with a footnote or two of their major overall historic contributions to mankind.

      Best comment ever!

  • AnthonyM

    Excellent, I hope they stick to it.

  • This Little Piggy

    Love it! Satan can no longer babble it’s so called “words of peace”. The argument for this is that everyone in their nation should have an equitable access to the wonderful teachings from the book of peace. You know that would be discrimination. Also, “we want you to be able to be included in our society & this will allow you to acquire our language quicker so you can integrate better.

  • richinnameonly

    I hope this is really enforced. I wish the U.S. would actually, legally make english the official language. But it won’t happen while the lefties have such a large influence.

  • Stephen Dalton

    Take your Anti-Catholic bigotry elsewhere!

    • michelletherese

      Sheesh, it didn’t take long for the Catholic bashing to begin!

  • Stephen Dalton

    That’s funny!

  • Stephen Dalton

    It’s wrong to despise Islam?

    I share your concern. Truth is to be proclaimed. Error is to be exposed. Light has no fellowship with darkness. Luke 11:35 ” Therefore take heed that the light that is in you be not darkness.”

  • Robert Michael Gabriel

    excellent points, Theodore.

    The problem is often, that muslim communities are not able to speak the language of the country. Many Imams are imported to Germany or Austria from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar or other countries. They teach their people, who are neither able to speak German in their language, but are often speaking hatred against the host country. Specially Erdogan tells the Turkish population outside Turkey that they should not speak the language of the country. The mosques are the source of a parallel society and this is the source of many crimes here in Europe.

  • w.a.

    Austria was only allied twice to Turkey and Muslims in history: During World War I and during the government of Hitler (who was an Austrian). The Nazis were Islam’s best friend.
    Austria had about 32 wars with the Ottoman Empire, Vienna was twice occupied by the Turkish armies and was twice defeated.
    The supporters of Islam are the Nazis, not those who are against Islam.
    No, you can’t compare Muslims with Jews.

    Maybe Austria remembers the scourge of World War II and does not want to be taken over by evil again.

    You are reading secular distortions of what the pope has said…he is getting it the worst of any pope.

    You have to go to Catholic sites to get what Francis really said.

  • Julie

    Catholics pray for you.

  • Kamau40

    Go Austria!! They get the message of supporting Language, Culture, and Borders.

  • michelletherese

    Awesome! But… will Austria punish Christians and Jews too, in order to be “fair” and PC?

  • benvad

    if they don’t like it GO HOME!

  • Stephen Dalton

    Rick, we Catholics have been around since 33 AD. You Protestants came on the scene 1484 years later. Why would I believe a Johnny-Come-Lately religion has the truth? After all, you Protestants can’t even agree on your basic doctrines, while we Catholics who are educated in the faith know what we believe.

  • Stephen Dalton

    I see you believe that ‘Constantine started the Catholic Church’ myth. You don’t know any history at all if you buy into that fantasy. A reading of the Church fathers will show any intellectually honest person that the early Church was Catholic way before Ol’ Connie ever showed up. There’s absolutely no trace of anything remotely Protestant in the early church. One has to be projecting Protestantism back into the early church to believe it was Protestant. And believe that heretical groups like the Cathars were true Christians being persecuted by the big, bad, Catholic Church. Please read the articles that Walid and Ted have posted on church history to get some real history, instead of the nonsense you have been spoon fed.

    I was a protestant, and protestants are followers of Paul not Christ, it is always Paul, and the gnostic knowledge between the words of Paul. I found the protestant Christ to be a small greek God on the edge of a hissy fit. What is the true christianity your protestantism expresses, Protestantism’s truth is 2+2= 4.5, 5, 5.5 until 40,000 differeent churchs, protestantism is dead in Europe because they pull verses out of context history to keep themselves safe. I became a catholic because of history, Holding your mouth a certain way and saying some voodoo words, doesn’t overcome God’s sovereign will, you are not saved, you corrupted the greek a crime in my book. You are following a false Paul, not Christ. It only matters what God thinks of the Catholic Church not you and he has given us the body and blood in the mass, to the wonderbread and grape juice crowd like you nothing.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Guess you’ve never read the writings of people such as St. Ignatius of Antioch, Clement of Rome, Cyril of Jerusalem, Cyprian,Tertullian… Oh – and how many protestant bishops were at the Council of Carthage or the Council of Hippo? Guess you missed the scripture that states that the CHURCH is the pillar and ground of truth – HELLO – the church preceded the Bible.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Why do you think that YOU have to right to interpret Jesus’ crystal clean words about eating his flesh and drinking his blood in to a mere myth? There is not ONE Church Father that wrote anything but that it IS his body and Blood. Stay in your man-made traditions.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    IGNATIUS of Antioch, AD 107 “They (gnostics) even abstain from the Eucharist and from the (liturgical) prayers, because they do not confess the Eucharist is the self-same body of our Saviour Jesus Christ…” JUSTIN MARTYR, AD 155 “And this food among us is called the Eucharist…For not as common bread and common drink do we receive these; but in like manner…we have been taught that the food that is blessed by the prayer of His word, and from which our blood and flesh by transmutation are nourished, is the flesh and blood of that Jesus who was made flesh.” IRENAEUS of Lyon, AD 180 “When, therefore, the mingled cup and the manufactured bread receives the Word of God, and the Eucharist of the body and blood of Christ is made, from which things the substance of our flesh is increased…”. There’s plenty more. You’re on the wrong side of history.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    That is because you ARE in man-made traditions. You follow Ulrich Zwingli in HIS interpretation, and in your OWN interpretation.. The word of ‘commemoration’ in Greeek is “anamnesis’, and it means much more than to just ‘remember.’ If you will notice in the book of Acts 2:42, it is called the breaking of THE bread – not, breaking bread. Maybe you aren’t aware of the prophecies of the sacrifice that the GENTILES will offer WITH INCENSE – Malachi 1:11 – burnt offerings of the gentiles, Isaiah 56:7, and the cooking of these sacrifices, Zechariah 14:21. You also ignore all of Paul’s writings on this – tell me how eating bread can cause you to die? How can bread or wine make you GUILTY for the body and blood of the Lord? Your interpretation makes the Old Covenant greater than the New Covenant – do you realize this? They not only had miraculous bread and flesh from heaven. they also had the Bread of the Presence – which was HOLY BREAD – which could only be eaten by those in a state of sexual abstinence – ‘so the priest gave him the Holy bread, for there was no bread there but the Bread of the Presence.’ 1Sam 21:7 “Of a truth women have been kept from us as always when I go on an expedition; the vessels of the young men are holy, even when on a common journey; how much more today will their vessels be holy?’ 1 Sam 21:6. So – no – it is NOT a sheer remembrance. Jesus is the paschal lamb, and the flesh of the Lamb had to be eaten – Exo 12:8 – that is how you become one with the sacrifice. “We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat.” Hebrews 13:10

    And Paul relates how some had become ill, and some had died.

  • Stephen Dalton

    We are not guilty of picking and choosing what we want to believe. That ‘honor’ go to the founders of every heretical sect, which includes Luther and the other so-called reformers. The Church Fathers, especially the early ones, left us with certain knowledge of what the post apostolic church was like. The doctrines and practices were just like the Catholic Church of today. If you have actually read the fathers, you know this is true. but you won’t admit this, so you have to hide behind that hoary old Constantine changed the church myth to justify your rebellion against the Church. I do hope you repent of your rebellion before it’s to late. I’d hate for you to hear Constantine’s call you a liar at the Last Judgement.

  • Stephen Dalton

    You’re pulling every sophistic rabbit out of a hat to evade the truth. I know the Church Fathers well enough to know what the early church believed and taught.

    So, when is the war on Islam going to start? Or is this creeping evil plague of murderous hell-beasts to be allowed to continue unabated until they rule over all civilised nations? It’s obvious that the ratbag politicians of Western nations have been pocketing mega-bribes from the Saudis to allow all sorts of “concessions” to the muzrats. Mosque building, brainwashing school kids with propaganda, evil ignored by the law & apparently condoned by politicians who seem to have granted them “protected species” status, the list goes on. ALWAYS THE WRONG ONES IN POWER. IT’S WE, THE PEOPLE AGAINST MUZRATS & THEIR COLLABORATOR POLITICIANS. “OUR”POLITICIANS.
