Letter: 'Brave German Woman' warns against immigrants
Given her recent anti-Muslim/immigrant rant in the area, more appropriately Heidi Mund should be identified as "Hitler-mindset woman," not "brave German woman." Her ignorant, hateful message is identical to what it once was against Jews in Germany. Her tea party sponsors/followers obviously share the same venom. The Aryan Nation-types have resurfaced in the Northwest in full force.
Mund and her supporters' protest against the Islamic prayer inside a Lutheran church shows her ignorance of Lutheran tolerance toward Muslims. Not only was Martin Luther sympathetic to the "Turks" (Muslims), but his Protestant Reformation borrowed much from Islam. And there was St. Francis of Assisi, who brought church bells from observing prayer-call minarets during his proselytizing visits to Islamic lands, as well as the prayer beads. Upon return, he also told his fellow Catholics in Europe, "Muslims are good people; we must learn to get along."
And these immigrants/refugees? Mund and her fans are perhaps among the enthusiastic supporters of our invasions of Islamic lands; the immigrants are absolutely the direct result of our policies. At a minimum, mustn't there be a "you-break-it-you-fix-it" responsibility? Further, mustn't we realize that, while deplorable, the despicable militant minority out of 1.8 billion Muslims are reacting to the brutalities we have inflicted upon their lands? Mund "fears for the safety of Christians throughout the world."
She and her types are really spreading fears and hate in reverse - against Islam/Muslims; where is "Christian love"? Obviously, they are smitten by the "white-Christian-KKK" Trump-mania - the transformed Republican Party.

Thank you, Ghazi.  Thank you for expressing what so very many of your good friends (a membership of which I am proud to be a part of) here in Moscow (the one in Idaho) feel.

Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .
