Germany's immigrant problem

Germans are becoming increasingly anti-immigrant:

An ongoing survey of German views toward Muslims and 'foreigners' - who in Germany are generally taken to be Turks comprising the country's biggest, most visible minority - shows a growing intolerance.

Almost 60 percent say there are too many foreigners in Germany, according to a poll of 3,000 people by the University of Bielefeld's Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Conflict and Violence.

In 2002 the number of Germans saying there were too many foreigners was 55 percent, according to the poll.

Some 70 percent of those surveyed say Islamic culture "does not fit into the west" - up from 66 percent in 2003 - and one out of every three agrees with the statement: "Due to the many Muslims living here I sometimes feel like a foreigner in my own country."
