Germany: Half of all Germans “perceive Islam as a threat”

A new study by the Bertelsmann Foundation has found that half of all German’s “perceive Islam as a threat…. In East Germany, this proportion is even higher at 57% than in West Germany [50%].” The report does not include information on whether sharia-supporting Muslims were included in the sample survey.

No matter how hard the Muslim Brotherhood works to subvert democracies and convince Westerners that Islam is no different from any other religion — despite its 1,400-year history of violent and stealth conquest — people are starting to wake up to the truth. People are beginning to recognize that normative Islam is supremacist and expansionary, and sanctions violent and stealth jihad, as well as the abuse of women, apostates, infidels and others. Globalist leaders, however, continue to ignore the legitimate concerns of their populations, and brand any fear of Islam (no matter how prudent) as being “Islamophobic.

Canada also ascribes to open-door immigration under the current Liberal government, although the majority of the Canadian population does not support it. 63 percent of Canadians believe the government should prioritize limiting immigration levels, because the country might be reaching a limit in its ability to integrate them. Canada has long been an immigrant society; in the past, integration concerns were merely about some communities preferring to stick to their own cultural communities and languages. Never before have Canadians experienced any internal danger or domestic threats to its safety and freedom until the rise of Islamic influence that has warranted  government designations of some Islamic groups as terrorist entities and associated with jihad terror. Other Muslim groups in Canada, as well as in the U.S., are Muslim Brotherhood entities and unindicted co-conspirators to jihad terror, linked to Hamas. Canada also introduced the Zero Tolerance For Barbaric Cultural Practices Act, which was passed, but then altered to remove  the words “barbaric cultural practices.”

Dr. Yasemin El-Menouar, an Islam expert with Bertelsmann, “suspects that the negative result for Islam is influenced by the perception that Islam is more of a political ideology and less of a religion.” “Perception” does not apply here. Normative Islam is a political ideology. The Sharia is divine law in Islam, and promotes a top-down approach of governance, in which mullahs and Islamic leaders protect and defend the Sharia as an all encompassing way of life that includes politics, legal dictates, social and personal instruction.

The Bertelsmann Foundation study also found that only a third of respondents found that Islam enriches German society, while the “majority of Germans say Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism serve to enrich Germany.” Visible minorities are largely found among the Hindu and Buddhist populations, proving further that “racism” has nothing to do with opposition to Islam.

“Half of Germans view ISLAM as a threat, says new study,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2019:

he Bertelsmann Foundation released a study on Thursday revealing that every second German feels threatened by Islam. Dr. Yasemin El-Menouar, an Islam expert with Bertelsmann, wrote “Overall, about half of the respondents perceive Islam as a threat. In East Germany, this proportion is even higher at 57% than in West Germany [50%].“

The new study surveyed 1,000 people. It was conducted by the foundation’s Religion Monitor department and the data was collected in the Spring of 2019. Only a third of those surveyed said Islam enriches German society. In contrast, a majority of Germans say Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism serve to enrich Germany.

El-Menouar suspects that the negative result for Islam is influenced by the perception that Islam is more of a political ideology and less of a religion. However, the study also noted that “Only a minority of citizens show a clearly anti-Islamic view and demand, for example, to prevent the immigration of Muslims.”

According to El-Menouar, “Although our study shows a widespread skepticism of Islam, but that is not necessarily synonymous with hostility toward [Muslims]. Many people have reservations about Islam, but that does not lead to political demands or anti-democratic views.”….
