If this works the world will lose a major cultural tradition. They can't allow that to happen.

When I was young. I was taught to respect the house rules when visiting others.

Here's a well known example: Non-Muslim women who are visiting a mosque, such as reporters or politicians, will respect their host's rules and traditions of wearing some kind of head covering. They will do this regardless of their personal beliefs, religion or lack thereof, or that it may offend them because it infringes on their personal rights.

These people are not the majority of the population of Germany, nor are they even citizens of Germany. They are visitors and as such they too should be respectful of their hosts' rules and traditions regardless of their religious preferences. Why are they offended by something they are not required to participate in? Why can't they go do their own thing and let the country that is hosting them observe their own traditions? Why is it that everyone has to be respectful of them and their traditions when visiting meanwhile they don't have to reciprocate the courtesy?

When I was young a former captain in the red army said to me, "it is absurd to believe that people are created equal". I had never once questioned equality but as I had great respect for this man I allowed myself to consider the veracity of his statement.

The guy who started the petition isn't visiting, he's in the Netherlands. He's just trolling and we fell for it hard.

When muslims were young, they were taught hate, ignorance, violence and entitlement.

Do you want to get kicked out of Germany? Because that's how you get kicked out of Germany.

I like how he has the audacity to claim that it offends every Muslim. 1 billion people are Muslims, and apparently they all want Oktoberfest gone. My mom is Muslim, but understands that you can't ask a country to change a major event. This person is much too ignorant to understand that people exist.

At any time did you ask yourself why a netherlands muslim would make a petition in American english to an american liberal bullshit site, about changing a german holiday.

Because muslims are all about useless american online petition sites.

Please don't breed. Start a kickstarter to have your nuts cut off, I'll link your post history and you'll be there.
