Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Progress, if you like it

So I was clearing out the ol’ email inbox and ran across this item, sent to me by Monty back in…um, uhh, a while back. Don’t know how I let it get by me without a mention here back then, but consider that shameful lapse rectified.

German Muslims have established a self-styled biker gang — modeled on the Hells Angels — aimed at protecting fellow Muslims from the “ever-growing hatred of Islam,” according to Die Welt.

The emergence of the group, which aspires to open chapters in cities and towns across Germany, has alarmed German authorities, who have warned against the growing threat of vigilantism in the country.

The gang, which calls itself “Germanys Muslims” (the possessive apostrophe is not used in German), is based in Mönchengladbach and now has offshoots in Münster and Stuttgart. It was founded by Marcel Kunst, a German convert to Islam who also uses the name Mahmud Salam.

The gang’s uniform consists of a black leather jacket with a logo depicting a one-fingered salute, the “Finger of Tawheed,” which represents belief in the oneness of Allah.

Well, fine, I guess. But WHICH finger?

The logo also includes the number 1438, which represents the current year in the Muslim calendar, as well as the number 713, which stands for GM (Germanys Muslims), the seventh and thirteenth letters of the alphabet.

A bit of a departure from the old “13-69” patch that’s traditionally adorned so many club cuts over the decades—I probably have one of those same patches laying around here someplace myself—but what the hell. Legend has it that the “13” stands for the letter “M,” 13th in the alphabet, which in turn stands for “marijuana.” The “69” you can figure out for yourselves.

Oh, and as for that “apostrophe not used in German” business: it ain’t used in the HA logo either, a fact a lot of people who make it their business to write about them seem to be unaware of. Interesting to note that they got it right here. Punctuation aside, though, the most interesting aspect of all is just how long it’s going to be before the name gets changed from “Germanys Muslims” to “Muslims’ Germany.”
