A US-made video, showing German cathedrals turned into mosques and Oktoberfest without alcohol or pork, is being deployed to convince US voters to cast their ballots for Donald Trump.

The mock Isis propaganda video, called “Welcome to the Islamic State of Germany - book your ticket now!”, presents a vision of Germany as a place taken over by Islamists.

“Infiltration through Syrian refugees has allowed our brave jihadi fighters to conquer and convert Germany, extending our caliphate,” the narrator explains.

The video encourages people to come to Germany, where they can “celebrate the arranged marriages of future jihadists at Oktoberfest.”

Visitors to the country can also pray to Allah at Cologne Cathedral or take selfies in front of murals of jihadi martyrs on the Berlin Wall, according to the video, which has been viewed over half a million times since its publication on Sunday.

Behind the clip is an organization called Secure America Now, which claims to be the US’s “largest digital national security platform, dedicated to bringing critical security issues to the forefront of the American debate.”

A spokesperson for the organization told Breitbart News that the film is one of a series which is supposed to convey what the world would look like if Hillary Clinton becomes US President.

German media reacted with bemusement to the video on Wednesday, with Der Westen calling it absurd, Spiegel referring to it as “crude”, and the Berliner Morgenpost labelling it ”gaga”.

Der Western also reported that the video was being pushed in swing states in the US in order to convince undecided voters that Clinton’s immigration policies would lead to a takeover of the West by the terror group Isis.
