57 percent of Germans feel Islam is a threat: poll
A survey on Thursday shows that Muslims in Germany feel they are integrating - but a growing majority of Germans feel threatened by Islam in the country.
The survey was carried out in November - before the massacre of journalists in Paris by Islamist gunmen - but as the numbers attending anti-Muslim rallies in Dresden and other cities began to escalate.
The Bertelsman Foundation think tank survey looked at the perception of Islam in Germany from the eyes of Muslims and non-Muslims. Of the non-Muslims surveyed, 57 percent thought that Islam was threatening or very threatening to German society.
