Nearly every fourth non-German Muslim rejects integration, questions western values and tends to accept violence, according to a study commissioned by the German Interior Ministry
The survey showed that of Muslims living in Germany who were not German citizens, 52% favored integration, while 48% strongly leaned toward separation and clearly rejected German majority culture. There are currently around four million Muslims living in Germany. The survey also showed that among 14 to 32-year-old Muslims there exists a subgroup of Islamic religious extremists who hold anti-western views and are prepared to use violence. This group amounts to about 15% of Muslims with German citizenship and about 24% for Muslims who are not German.
