Anti-refugee rally in Berlin meets counter demo

My appearance on Press TV talking about the far-right protest rally in central Berlin yesterday (7 May 2016) and the counter-rally. I underscore the fallacy of far-right myopia regarding the history of Islam in Germany; that Germans and Muslims have a nearly 1200 year historical experience of mutual co-existence from the time of the Holy Roman Emperor Charlamagne when he and the Abbasids established mutual embassies during the 8th century CE; the conversion of JW Goethe to Islam and the heartfelt appreciation for Islam articulated by both Rainer Maria-Rilke and Friedrich Nietzsche; and that mosques were being built in Germany during the 18th/19th centuries, etc.
