  • Islamverherrlichung: Wenn die Kritik zum Tabu wird by Thorsten Gerald Schneiders

    By Thorsten Gerald Schneiders

    Muss sich unter Muslimen in Deutschland etwas ändern? Viele dürften die Frage mit „Ja“ beantworten. Offenbar gibt es genügend Anlass zu „Islamkritik“. Leider missbrauchen dies viele als Vehikel für natural Ressentiments. Doch das darf nicht dazu führen, jede shape von Kritik in den Wind zu schlagen und das Bild vom gelebten Islam schön zu färben. Beide Haltungen sind problematisch und daher Inhalt eines umfassenden zweibändigen Buchprojekts. Während der bereits erschienene Band „Islamfeindlichkeit“ unterschiedliche Aspekte des europäischen Islamhasses vergangener Jahrhunderte bis zur heutigen Hetze im net dokumentiert, zeigt das vorliegende Buch „Islamverherrlichung“, wie vernünftige Islamkritik ohne Pauschalisierung, Populismus und Polemik aussehen kann. Ausgewiesene Experten sprechen dazu offen theologische Herausforderungen an und weisen auf Missstände in der muslimischen Gesellschaft Deutschlands hin. Es geht sowohl um brisante Einzelthemen wie Jihad, Antisemitismus oder Kopftuch, als auch um grundlegende Fragen zum Koran, zum Propheten Muhammad oder zur Scharia. Zudem finden sich Auseinandersetzungen mit bekannten Einzelpersonen und Islamverbänden. Mit Beiträgen von Nasr Hamid Abu Zayd, Lamya Kaddor, Ömer Özsoy, Rabeya Müller, Adel Theodor Khoury, Udo Tworuschka, Katajun Amirpur, Hartmut Bobzin und anderen.
