Hamed Abdel-Samad, an ex-Muslim son of an imam of Egyptian origin, who believes “Islam is a danger to society,” was forced to move out of Germany because he now requires 24/7 security against Muslims threatening to kill him there.
Wiki Abdel-Samad became known to the German public through his book Mein Abschied vom Himmel (My Farewell from Heaven) (2009). Following the book’s publication in Egypt a group issued a fatwa against Abdel-Samad and he was put under police protection.
He criticized the German political establishment for appeasing Islam, while ignoring fears about Islam. According to Abdel-Samad, this behavior created resentment in the German population. In an interview aired on Al-Hafez on June 7, 2013, hardline Egyptian cleric and Al-Azhar professor Mahmoud Shaaban accused Abdel-Samad of committing “heresy” and stated that “he must be killed for being a heretic…if he refuses to recant.”
