Poll: More Than Half of Germans Now Fear Rise of Islam

But of course, the government is more concerned about "rightwing xenophobia."

A new poll in Germany reveals that more than half of Germans fear the rise of Islam in their country. Surprise, surprise.

According to the UK's Daily Mail, a new study carried out by a "leading" Christian organization found that 57 per cent of those questioned were concerned about the increasing prominence of Islam in their homeland.

Only a third of young people aged 18 to 24 said they were fearful, but nearly two-thirds of respondents over the age of 45 were concerned. That's because young people are naive and brainwashed by political correctness and multiculturalism.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has repeatedly come under fire for her open-doors policy on migration. Her party suffered historic losses in elections for the Berlin state parliament earlier this week. Gee, maybe the people are trying to send you a message, Chancellor.

However, most of the Daily Mail's article, predictably, was focused not on the threat posed by Islamic immigration but on what the government calls a surging "xenophobia" and "far-right violence" against migrants.

'Right-wing extremism in all its forms poses a very serious threat for the social and economic development of the new states," said Iris Gleicke, the federal government's commissioner for eastern German affairs.

And Islam does not?
