A German far-right politician, whose party claims “Islam does not belong to Germany,” has converted to Islam and resigned his post.

Arthur Wagner, a leading member of Alternative for Germany (AfD) in the eastern state of Brandenburg, left his position on the party’s state executive committee on January 11 citing “personal reasons,” according to Andreas Kalbitz, AfD’s chairman AfD in the state.

Kalbitz told CNN that he only learned about Wagner’s conversion in a telephone conversation with him a few days later.

“I was very surprised,” he said. “He has been very active in the Christian wing of the party.”

once men learn they can take child brides and more than one, and that its sanctioned by Allah, they want to become muzzies, or other religious fanatics that allow it…

Other than the 72 virgins and max olives thing for Jihadists, I fail to understand the appeal of Islam.

Watch him carefully. If he begins to take his new “religion” too seriously, he’ll start doing what it preaches, and then look out!

Infiltrator. The party should closely examine its officers

and those in management of it.

Something makes me seriously doubt that claim.

“…I fail to understand the appeal of Islam….”

No one in their right mind does.

There is no appeal. It’s assimilate or die.

Islam is the BORG of this century.

To a socialist anyone who is not a dyed in the wool socialist is far right.

Perhaps he realized that Germany will fall and decided he would change to the winning side. Obviously a Chrisitian of convenience.

That must surely be a big attraction.

Maybe he changed his other preferences as well.

I fail to understand the appeal of Islam.

Its pure faith and obedience, and zero logic or rationality. There are no moral quandaries as a Muslim. Hence the need for the many rulings from Ulama or Imams on asinine topics such as if Twitter should be allowed, or how thick a rod may be used to beat one’s wife. It provides a type of determinist certainty for the lazy, stupid or fearful.

I think it also appeals to people who like tocontrol other people.
