My City: The King fahad Academy in Bonn Germany – From an International School to the target of false accusations is now for Sale

Build and opened in 1995 the King fahad Academy [ger. König Fahad Akademie] in Bonn Germany, was to me and my Family one of the best alternatives to keep your school education move forward, after most Diplomat Students in Germany were cooperatively at an Iraqi inversted later Kuwaity invested School. The later schools were nothing more than Caravans , those are the pictures i do still remember, that were laveshly transformed into a magnificent School completely made out of luxurious marble. A transformation that made the estimated two hundered Students from all around the Arabic Speaking World feel more welcomed and more Human.

That school that taught me two more languages [English and German] next to the Kurdish mother tongue and the arabic administrative [Lingua Franca] was during my studies at the University of Cologne accredited as a bee hive of Islamists. An accusation that was simply false, due to the fact that the Construction of the School was welcoming two sufficiant things to a Muslim and Arab Community: An Education and a Place to express freely their religious Obligations by visity the side Mosque.

The news were accusing a Mosque Preacher of demanding a physical education of the Students, which was so trickely widened into the accusation that the entire School and Educational System was Islamist and anti Integrationalist. An Accusation that leaves even someone like me speechless.

After traveling to several States of the Globe as a Diplomat and Activ Analyst, I was so curious to know what has become of my Childhood and teenage School. And the information that was given to me by the Guards was it is closed and for Sale in case I was interested. For sale!

The City of Bonn Badgodesberg is one of the most forgotten cities of Germany now, after it was left behind as the Capital city of Germany until 1990.

What remains is the question of why the School with it´s Mosque cant be a Cultural Center in Case an educational System can`t be reopened? How about an open Mosque again next to a Library of Islamic Culture, Language and Architecture? Even though I still wish it will maintain it´s educational Glory, regardless of the accusations that were spread mostly by the lack of knowledge and hate for an inter and multicultural City.
