Germany -
Return to Hitler's Education Program

[COMMENT:  Hitler outlawed home schooling. His law was never revoked, and is now being enforced.  This story is an appalling reminiscence of Hitler's days.  Or Stalin.  What's the difference?  Totalitarianism smells just as bad by any other name.  For contrast, see Free Market of Ideas...  E. Fox]
 

See the article at http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=54082 for details on the recent German swat team abduction of a girl for being homeschooled. 

More details:

TO EVERYONE, THE GERMAN GOVERNMENT IS AGAIN PERSECUTING HOMESCHOOLING FAMILIES. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING EMAIL AND WRITE A QUICK [OR LONG] NOTE TO THE GERMAN AUTHORITIES AT THE EMAIL ADDRESSES PROVIDED. GOD'S PEACE BE WITH YOU, BRUCE

Dear Bruce,
 
(If you could get these addresses out to your network it would be incredible what pressure we can generate.  Thanks, brother!)
 
As I shared with you over the weekend, German officials have taken fifteen year old Melissa Busekros from her family.  All of the facts surrounding this outrageous action of German legal and police authorities can be found in English at http://www.netzwerk-bildungsfreiheit.de/html/pe_erlangen_en.html. The State’s action clearly goes beyond what is justifiable. They took unreasonable measures for which they had no basis. They intimidated the family with a “SWAT” team of 15 police officers to take captive a 15 year old unsuspecting girl early in the morning, taking her to a state psychiatrist.  The psychiatrist, after hours of interrogation, wrote a report which claimed that Melissa had delayed educational development of 1 year and school phobia. The judge, basing her decision on this report, gave the custody of the child over to the state and placed the child in a psychiatric ward. This was all done in a sped up action taking only four days. The family is devastated and has immediately appealed the judge's decision. They are asking for your support.
 
We are asking you, and everyone you know, to take action and send an email to the officials listed below.  Your email should let them know that you do not support their actions which violate religious liberties and parental rights laws around the world, including in Germany .  Then ask the official to please use the authority of their position to have Melissa released back into the custody of her parents.  Also, email the court and ask them to reinstate the custody rights of the Busekros parents.
