Vast majority of Germans want Muslim immigration to continue
The vast majority of Germans oppose a general immigration ban for Muslims. Germans seem to believe that the newcomers will be paying their pensions. But at least one influential author wants immigration to be stopped.

Some 73 percent of the citizens therefore reject the statement “one must stop immigration of Muslims in principle,” the pollster Kantar Emnid revealed. The pollster conducted the survey for the political magazine Focus. Only 24 percent agreed with the statement.
Among the supporters, the anti-immigration party, the AfD were particularly strongly represented. Some 68 percent of the supporters of the party want immigration to stop. The sympathisers of all other parties represented in the Bundestag reject the notion.
The poll was linked to the publication of author Thilo Sarrazin’s new book, Hostile Takeover – How Islam Obstructs Progress and Threatens Society.
The former Berlin Finance Senator Sarrazin told the Passauer Neue Presse: “In Germany and in Europe a gradual and almost weedlike hostile takeover is taking place.”
Significantly more than half of Muslims living in Germany are attached to a fundamentalist Islam. It should not be the burden of the West to absorb the “huge birth surplus” of the Middle East and Africa. Sarrazin emphasized: “There is no right in the world to immigrate to a foreign country.”
Critics say Sarrazin could further embolden the “far right and fuel an upsurge in neo-Nazi violence”.
Sarrazin warns that Muslims will be the majority in Germany within two or three generations and calls for an immediate end to immigration. The birth rates among Muslim immigrants are “demographic dynamite”, Sarrazin writes.
A former member of the Berlin city government and of the Bundesbank’s board, Sarrazin said at the book launch in Berlin that Islam was not a religion of peace “but a violent ideology cloaked as a religion”.
Sarrazin, a member of the SPD, presented his new book on Thursday. The SPD party executive committee had instructed “experts” to examine the statements of Sarrazin “very closely”, Secretary-General Lars Klingbeil on Friday told the party newspaper forward.de. They will be “looking carefully at the book and his other actions.”
Soon after Klingbeil’s statement, the SPD leadership called on Sarrazin to quit the party. “Thilo Sarrazin is a bitter man who is only in the SPD to market his absurd theses,” Klingbeil told the German Press Agency on Thursday. “What he writes has nothing to do with social-democratic positions. Anyone who uses membership in the SPD only for personal gain should go.”
The SPD has failed twice already with their attempts to exclude Sarrazin from the party.
Sarrazin says he does not want to leave the SPD voluntarily. “I feel the SPD, in which I grew up, is still in good hands,” said Sarrazin on Thursday at the presentation of his new book on Islam.
He has been a member of the SPD for 45 years, and in the year of his entry, the government of Willy Brandt had issued the “comprehensive immigration stop for migrant workers,” said Sarrazin. In 1973, the recruitment ban for new guest workers came into force.
The former Federal Chancellor Helmut Schmidt had “repeatedly omitted in his books the cultural dangers of Muslim immigration” he said.
