The senate of the German state of Hamburg signed an "Equal Rights Agreement" with Muslim communities earlier today, daily Hürriyet reported.

Three Muslim communities and one Alevi community, which are officially recognized by the state of Hamburg, will reportedly have equal rights with other religious communities if the agreement is approved by the state Parliament.

Hamburg is the first German state to pass such a motion.

What the Alevis can not get in Turkey they got it in Germany, where, even according to some opinionists of this newspaper, reigns Islamophobia. Perhaps this is the opportunity desired by the experienced diplomatic Mrs Barcin Yinanc to send in Germany Dede so that to force the turkish government to recognize the dignity of worship for Alevis in Turkey.
