Germany: New study finds that ‘Islamophobia’ is widespread and growing

Published

This article is 100% unadulterated propaganda designed to intimidate people into thinking that it’s wrong to oppose jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others. It offers as evidence of “racism” and “Islamophobia” the fact that “nearly 48 percent of respondents said they believe ‘Islam is not compatible with the German society,’” and then claims that “German authorities registered at least 662 anti-Muslim hate crimes in 2021.”

The article goes on to claim that “Islamophobia” is “fueled by the propaganda of far-right groups and parties, which have exploited the refugee crisis and attempted to stoke fear of immigrants.” So we are supposed to get the idea that these “anti-Muslim hate crimes” stem from people believing that “Islam is not compatible with the German society.” The implication is that if such beliefs are prohibited and criminalized, “Islamophobia” will subside and all will be well.

No indication whatsoever is given of the fact that people think that “Islam is not compatible with the German society” not because of the rhetoric of “far-right groups and parties,” but because of the statements and behavior of all too many Muslims in Germany. Nor does the article explain exactly what it considers to be an “anti-Muslim hate crime.” Is it an actual violent act against an innocent Muslim? Such acts are always and everywhere to be condemned. Is it simply noting that there are aspects of Islam that are incompatible with Western pluralism? If so, then the agenda here is not to protect Muslims, it’s to destroy the freedom of speech in service of an authoritarian agenda.

“Anti-Muslim sentiments prevalent in Germany – study,” TRT World, October 6, 2022:

Germany has witnessed growing racism and Islamophobia in recent years, fueled by the propaganda of far-right groups and parties.

Anti-Muslim attitudes are widespread in Germany, according to a recent study conducted by the Expert Council on Integration and Migration (SVR).

Nearly 48 percent of respondents said they believe “Islam is not compatible with the German society,” while 29 percent suggested restricting practice of Islam in the country.

Nearly 44 percent of Germans surveyed argued that Muslim organizations should be monitored by the state’s security agencies, while only 16 percent opposed such a move.

Anti-Islamic attitudes were slightly more common among migrants who arrived in Germany from non-Muslim countries. People who had social contacts with Muslims, however, were less inclined to hold anti-Islamic attitudes, according to the report….

The SVR called for stronger action to counter anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic attitudes in all population groups, by promoting intercultural contacts and anti-discrimination work….

The country has witnessed growing racism and Islamophobia in recent years, fueled by the propaganda of far-right groups and parties, which have exploited the refugee crisis and attempted to stoke fear of immigrants.

German authorities registered at least 662 anti-Muslim hate crimes in 2021. More than 46 mosques were attacked between January and December last year, and at least 17 people suffered injuries due to the anti-Muslim violence.
