Book on Islamic martyrdom released in Germany

The Iran Book Agency reports that a book by Ayatollah Morteza Motahari entitled Martyr in Islam has been translated into German, and released in Germany. According to the review, the book claims that although scholars, teachers, doctors and the like may be rewarded in the afterlife, none will be appreciated more than the Islamic martyr. Motahari has written that:

"There is no substance in Christianity; it contains no more than a few moral teachings that form a set of advice such as "tell the truth", "do not tell lies", "do not gobble up the wealth of others", and so on. [...] Islam however is a religion that sees its duty and commitment to form an Islamic state. Islam came to reform society and to form a nation and government. It's mandate is the reform of the whole world. Such a religion cannot be indifferent. It cannot be without a law of jihad."

Doesn't it give you a warm glow inside to know that this Islamic thinker is having his work released in Germany, right after Elisabeth Sabaditch-Wolff has been prosecuted for denigrating religious beliefs?
