Subject: Muslims against terrorism

Wow! For the first time I see open protest of Muslims against terrorism and fanatical Islamism in Germany. More than 20,000 people, mostly Turks, protested in Cologne against terrorism.

Here is the (German) Spiegel article reporting about the event: "Manchmal habe ich Angst vor meiner Religion". The title means "Sometimes I am afraid of my own religion" (a statement of one of the Turks who took part in the protest march). Many of the Turks had Turkish, German or EU flags symbolizing their support of Ataturk's laicistic politics (separation of state and religion) and their wish to be intergrated in Germany and the EU. I think this is a great gesture of the Turkish people living in Germany.
