20% of Turks In Germany Say Violence Justified Due To West’s Threat To Islam – 7% Say Violence Justified To Spread Islam, 50% Hold Islam Above State Law

Half of Turkish Germans hold Islam above state law

A wide-ranging new study by the University of Münster shows that Germany’s Turkish community still has very conservative views on the role of religion in society.

The survey provides an often contradictory picture of social attitudes among Germany’s 2.7 million people of Turkish origin.

A total of 47 percent of the 1,201 respondents said that “following the tenets of my religion is more important to me than the laws of the land in which I live.”

Twenty percent said that the threat which the West poses to Islam justified violence. Seven percent said violence was a justifiable means of spreading Islam.

Remember that the Turks were imported as “foreign workers” in the 60’s.

Haven’t they integrated nicely?

    100% of the West says islam is a threat to the West and violence is justified to protect the West from savage islam and sharia and its invasion into our world.
