In Germany, Turkish Muslims Hope for Muslim Majority

The study also finds that 63% of Turks aged 15 to 29 year-olds approve of the radical Islamist campaign to distribute a Koran to every household in Germany, and 36% of the young people said they would be willing to support the Salafist campaign financially with donations.

By contrast, 69% of those over the age of 50 (the older generation was heavily influenced by Kemalism) are opposed to the campaign called Project “READ!”

The authors of the study say this data reflects the increasing role of Islam among the younger generation, who consider the religion to be a “gateway to a politicization which could lead to group building”– that is, the growing attraction to political Islam.

Overall, the new survey largely corroborates a 764-page study released by the German Interior Ministry in March 2012, which found that 48% of Muslims living in Germany “strongly leaned toward separation” and clearly rejected the culture of the German majority. .

That study, “The Daily Life of Young Muslims in Germany,” also showed that among Muslims between the ages of 14 and 32 there is a “subgroup” of religious extremists who hold anti-Western views and are reportedly prepared to use violence.

Taken together, the combined research reaffirms that Germany faces significant difficulties ahead in integrating immigrant Muslim population, and that over the long-run integration may even be unattainable if the younger generation of Turkish-Germans increasingly continues to embrace Islam.
