180.000 Muslims in Germany ready to commit violence in the name of Islam

A study commissioned by Germany’s Interior Ministry warns that 180.000 of the country’s 3 million Muslims are willing to commit violence in the name of Islam, which amounts to 6 percent of the Muslim population of Germany.

The number is alarmingly high because a similar study a year ago showed that just 32.000, slightly more than 1 percent, were radical islamists representing a potential security threat.
Interior Minister Wolfgang Schäuble says in a foreword that the study leads to the
worrying conclusion that a serious potential for Islamist radicalization has developed in Germany”.
