Islamisation: Germany’s Tele5 TV Channel Puts Muslim Star And Crescent On Logo


German Television station Tele5 has changed its logo today to a German flag emblazoned with the Islamic star and crescent, just weeks after the New Year’s Eve migrant sex attacks in Cologne.

Tele5 justified the move on Twitter this afternoon, saying that it was a symbol “expressing our sympathy to the victims of yesterday’s attack,” on German tourists in Istanbul. The attack in Istanbul took the lives of 10  tourists, mostly Germans, in Sultanahmet square, a tourist location near the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus, the suicide bomber who perpetrated the attack has been identified as a Syrian migrant from body parts recovered on the scene.

The Deputy Prime Minister also clarified that the bomber was not on Turkey’s terrorism watch list, and it has now been reported that he entered the country as a Syrian “refugee”.

Channel Tele5 was founded by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as a successor to Germany’s first music channel Musicbox. The channel went defunct in 1992 but was revived by Tele Munchen Gruppe in 2002. The current Tele5 is known for broadcasting primarily American television shows like the X-Files, Andromeda and Stargate SG-1 as well as Japanese Anime programmes.

The move comes a few weeks after the German state broadcaster, ZDF, launched an Arabic-language version of its news service

The Turkish government has blamed Islamic State for the attack, which would make the incident the first time Islamic State has directly targeted the Turkish tourist industry, although they have targeted European tourists in Tunisia, and elsewhere, in recent months.
