I really fail to understand the upper court's rationale. Yes, Christians don't have a prayer room on school premises, either, but that Muslim student apparently was cooperative in that he didn't fo ...


It's separation of church and state.  That was a public school, so it is funded by the state.  The state cannot sponser relgion.  Here, there are other options (I can't speak for germany), you can set up a private school which allows for prayers.  There are many catholic schools around here.  So parents have a choice, but if they want their kids going to a religious school - they have to pay for it out of their own pockets.  This ensures separation of church and state and religious freedom.

I've never met a jewish fundamentalist - do they have to pray 5 times a day?

go to New York and meet some orthodox jews....those whose women have to be bald(shave their hair) etc. There are extremistic jews...but they stay among themselves and don`t force others to become like them.

Really?

Try this one:

"Let's nuke Gaza" (Avigdor Lieberman, Israeli Foreign Minister, spoken during operation Cast Lead in Dec. 2008).

Ever heard of the Goldstone Report?

Yeah, and the German Supreme Court in Karlsruhe had ruled some time ago, that crucifixes should not be hang in class rooms of public schools.

So what, equal rights or duties for all religions.

Are Muslim pupils in Shanghai or Guangzhou allowed to worship in public schools ?
