Germany: 75% fear spread of Islam
Nearly three quarters of Germans fear the spread of Islam, according to a survey released on Friday.
A poll by Infratest dimap for public broadcaster ARD showed a third [36%] of those asked expressed great concern that Islam was growing too quickly in Germany. Thirty-nine percent were still worried about Islam’s impact on society, but to a lesser degree. Only 22 percent said they had no problem with the religion.
A separate survey for daily Berliner Morgenpost and broadcaster RBB showed, however, that a majority in the German capital did not support banning the construction of mosques with minarets as Switzerland did following a recent referendum on the issue.
