German Muslims against self-censorship

The Telegraph reports on a conference between the German government and Islamic leaders – scheduled long before the Mozart scandal – where it was agreed that the opera should be performed.

The Muslim representatives at the Islamic conference today agreed with me that the opera should be performed — and that we should go to see it together.

Opera director Kerstin Harms must be regretting her decision by now. Time to backtrack, perhaps.
