Or, maybe Munich could just cancel the party and use the beer tents for shelter;“Munich has reached its limit,” Mayor Dieter Reiter told a press conference on Saturday, saying that his city was trying its best to manage the enormous influx of people.
“We have had 3,600 refugees coming in by 10:30 this morning,” Christoph Hillenbrand, district president of Upper Bavaria, told journalists. “This is the largest number of refugees we have had at this time of the day until now.” He said that officials expected about 10,000 applicants for asylum to reach the southern German city on Saturday, but that there was allocated space for only half that many.
Hillenbrand said officials had no idea how they would create beds for the 5,000 people left without access to “buses, trains or any free space” on Saturday evening. The only hope can come from Bavaria’s neighbors, who can use the state’s example and take their share of the responsibility for accommodating applicants for asylum.
Dear City council of Munich,
I am writing this letter to bring to your attention something that I and many Muslims believe is unfair and requires attention. I would like to inform you that the Oktoberfest is an Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event. We tried to ignore the event, but there too many Un-Islamic acts done at the Oktoberfest. Such as alcohol consumption, public nudity etc.
We understand that the Oktoberfest is a yearly German tradition, but we, Muslims, can not tolerate this Un-Islamic event, because it offends us and all Muslims on the earth. We are requesting the immediate cancellation of the upcoming Oktoberfest event.
We also believe that the Oktoberfest might also offend all the Muslim refugees coming from Syria, Iraq,
Afghanistan. The cancellation of the Oktoberfest event will help refugees not to forget their Islamic history. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
