Islam doesn’t belong here, say two-thirds of Germans

The number of Germans who say that Islam is not a part of Germany has risen sharply over the previous two years, a new poll shows.

For 60 percent of Germans, Islam does not belong in their culture, with only 34 percent of respondents saying that, yes Islam does have a place in Germany, a poll published by Infratest dimap on Thursday shows.

This is a dramatic sharpening of public hostility to the Mohammedan faith since ex-President Christian Wulff famously stated in 2010 that “Islam is now also a part of Germany”.
