He sees the Integration as a debt

In Germany, the man ensures years of full halls. Ahmed Mansour, the German-Israeli with Palestinian roots, has brought the debate on integration is an important step forward. Integration, says 42-Year-old, is a debt: The immigrants need to try it yourself – as a parent twice, for themselves and their children. The counter-obligation on the part of the company is equal opportunities and non-discrimination.

This Mansour, for both political camps has an uncomfortable message: The Left he throws, that you glorify the subject of either trivializing, as multiculturalism and, where not, solely as the responsibility of the state to see. The Right that you do against the migrants to panic, Islam is a total threat to high-styled, in order to make their demands for closed borders supported by a majority.

For Mansour is Integration more as a language, working and not criminal. As evidence, he cites Mohammed Atta, the engineer from Hamburg, who spoke English, a Job, and had, nevertheless, to the planners of 9/11.

Integration without Assimilation

Plus, the need for Integration is the recognition of the universal fundamental values: democracy, equality, freedom, rights, human rights. For these values Mansour fights as managing Director of its Initiative for the promotion of democracy and extremism prevention. He seeks the dialogue with young people and young adults, the rings at the interface of two cultures to your identity. In youth clubs, schools and prisons. The method for the conversation he copied Socrates, Maieutics, a type of birth assistance ' for the arguments. It helps pre-when the young people hardened on the way to radicalisation at the same time, and aggressively argue and so each round of discussions dominate. He then asks, patiently, until a monstrous Argument of itself unmasked: the man, the woman is superior, the woman belong in the house, the Western society is the enemy.

Almost even more than violence prevention, the softening of the everyday role image to the fundamentalist side: the man is interested in a psychologist as a Patriarch, and sexuality as a taboo, the Black-and-White logic of Haram/Halal, friend/enemy. That he was himself not the friend of the around 10,000 Salafists in Germany, of course. He needs round-the-clock protection of persons, fewer people – it shows how important his work is.

Mansour himself is an example of successful Integration without Assimilation. He remained a Muslim, married to a German, is also employed. Both take care of their daughter. In Berlin, he has found a convincing answer to the crucial question: He is holding Religion for a private matter which must not be greater than the rights of freedom and democracy. He writes books, most recently "clear text for the Integration" (2018). On Monday he discussed in the town hall Wil be with the Imam Bekim Alimi and the St. Gallen cantonal government Fredi Fässler, on Tuesday evening in the Zurich merchants with the freethinkers Andreas Kyriacou.
