Meet Omed. Omed is a nice young man. He grows tomatoes on his balcony, and he loves puppies. Should you be a persecuted Yazidi or Christian from the Middle East, and flee to Germany, chances are that Omed will translate your plight to the German authorities. He works as a translator at the German Ministry for Migration and Refugees (their website in English: www.bamf.de/EN).
Omed has got a Facebook page where he describes himself as “anti Kafiron, anti Zionism, anti Capitalism, anti Faschism, Anti Imperialism!!” but that does not mean that he is an extremist – he hates ISIS. He is a Moderate Muslim™, he treats women nicely and does not like burkas.
No, Omed is just a modern young man who takes an interest in politics
and society. In his spare time, when he is not translating at the German
office for refugees, he muses how we all should be nice to each other,
because Allah, how you cannot trust Kaffirs or Apostates; how “homosexuals are sick animals”, and how Jews “belong into gas chambers“.
What could possibly go wrong?
I don’t know why I am reminded of this story (below) we did last year. I guess I am just paranoid!
