So much for the apocalyptic blather of certain American far-right xenophobes, who claim Muslims are infiltrating Europe to destroy it and to establish a califate -- a new study finds Muslims in Germany are extremely tolerant: 90% of the Muslims in Germany say they are "religious", compared to 70% only in the general population. There are 3.5 million Muslims in Germany (total population: 82 million), 2 million from Turkey. Only 16% of the Muslims say their faith has influence on their political opinions and 67% reject the idea of a Muslim political party. 67% of the Muslims agreed that every religion has a "true core". 86% of the Muslims said one should be open towards members of any religion, regardless of age, gender or social group. More than 50% of the Muslims rejected the idea Muslim women have to wear a headscarf, only 33% agreed with wearing it. But only a small number of the women polled who agreed said they regularly wear one. link These results should make it obvious how absurd that drivel about an alleged "califate" or the alleged aggressiveness of Muslims in Europe is.
