Turkish and Arab immigrants are failing to integrate and are swamping Germany with a higher birth rate
“Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germans have failed to grasp how Muslim immigration has transformed their country and will have to come to terms with more mosques than churches throughout the countryside, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily.
â€œOur country is going to carry on changing, and integration is also a task for the society taking up the task of dealing with immigrants,â€ Ms. Merkel told the daily newspaper. â€œFor years weâ€™ve been deceiving ourselves about this. Mosques, for example, are going to be a more prominent part of our cities than they were before.â€
Germany, with a population of 4-5 million Muslims, has been divided in recent weeks by a debate over remarks by the Bundesbankâ€™s Thilo Sarrazin, who argued Turkish and Arab immigrants were failing to integrate and were swamping Germany with a higher birth rate.
The Chancellorâ€™s remarks represent the first official acknowledgement that Germany, like other European countries, is destined to become a stronghold of Islam. She has admitted that the country will soon become a stronghold.”
