From Spiegel Online:

A local Berlin politician ... is under fire for inviting Dutch populist Geert Wilders to a meeting on Islam on October 2. Rene Stadtkewitz, who is known for his anti-Islamic views, has refused to cancel the invitation, and now faces eviction from his party's parliamentary group in the city assembly ....

Rene Stadtkewitz, 45, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats (CDU), looks set to be excluded from the CDU's parliamentary group in the Berlin city assembly after inviting Wilders to Berlin on October 2 to discuss integration and Islam. He had also discussed founding a branch of Wilders' Freedom Party in Germany.

Frank Henkel, the CDU's regional parliamentary group leader, gave Stadtkewitz an ultimatum: Withdraw the invitation by July 26 or face the consequences.

Stadtkewitz refused in an open letter in which he also suggested that the CDU should be doing more to combat Islam politically. Up until now, public debate about the Islamic faith had been "too timid" in Germany, Stadtkewitz wrote. He added that the debate should focus on the defense of freedom and of Christian values, including concerns about "countless young women, who are forced into arranged marriages, enslaved and who sometimes become victims of so-called honor killings."

'No Place in Our Party'

Henkel responded Monday by saying that he would propose a motion to exclude Stadtkewitz from the parliamentary group because he had distanced himself from "the goals of the conservatives."

Heil, the Great German Caliphate!

Henkel said Berlin set a positive example of integration and immigration for the whole of Germany. "There is no place in our party for people who demonize Islam and pass judgment on believers in other religions," Henkel explained.

For more on the glories of intergration and immigration, particularly in Berlin, read Bundesbank director Thilo Sarrazin's views here.  Sarrazin's blunt take on Germany's Islamic immigration woes includes the proposition that Berlin never recovered intellectually or artistically from having murdered its Jewish population during the Nazi regime, with the resulting vaccuum having been filled by left-wing activists, drop-outs and a Turkish-Arab underclass.

Back to the Spiegel story on the Stadtkewitz Purge:

The party looks likely to back the motion to exclude Stadtkewitz from the parliamentary group in a vote on September 7. This is not the first time Stadtkewitz has been in trouble for his anti-Islamic views. In 2006, he organized an unsuccessful protest against the building of a mosque in Berlin's Pankow district.

"In trouble" for his "views": Spiegel doesn't elaborate more than to note merely that " Germany's far-right National Democratic Party was also involved in the protest" against the mosque, which was the first to be built in East Berlin. It is on the site of a former sauerkraut factory (no kidding), and if that's not cultural conquest, I don't know what is. One notable complaint against the mosque was the fact that it was not going up in response to local need; there were no members in the neighborhood, so the 500 worshippers would be coming in from somewhere else. Failing to go numb and silent in the face of such glaring culture clash, however, lands you "in trouble" for your "views."   

If the October 2 meeting in Berlin goes ahead, it would be Wilders' first official appointment in Germany....

And, given the rate of the German Islamization, maybe the last.
