Germany: WDR suspends cooperation with presenter El-Hassan due to allegations of Islamism

Cologne - Public broadcaster WDR has suspended the collaboration with Nemi El-Hassan for the science program "Quarks" for the time being. “The allegations against her are grave. But it is also difficult to deny a young journalist a professional development. That is why a careful check is required, ”said the WDR on Tuesday, among other things, in response to a request from Junge Freiheit. Originally, the medical journalist was supposed to moderate the show from October.

Allegations of Islamism had previously been raised against El-Hassan. She has since admitted that she took part in the anti-Israel Al Quds March in Berlin in 2014 . “Under no circumstances did I give anti-Semitic slogans during the demo, nor did I physically attack people of Jewish faith,” she wrote in a statement to the dpa news agency. In addition, the doctor was criticized for her statement about the term “jihad” in a video published in 2015 by the Federal Agency for Political Education.
