"Most of the Germans I know are more concerned about the influx of the Turks. They also are concerned about the explosion of the Muslim population in Berlin. That is the center of a lot of ant-semitic feeling in Germany." I think it's the fact that Germany has never been really religious and has no religious ethics, unlike for example France or Britain, and especially in contrast to the "religious" orient. Anti-judaism and anti-islamism are just different phenotypes of one and the same thing: anti-semitism. It's not astonishing that Berlin is a center of anti-semitic feeling, but not because of muslims. I am German: I can be faithful, know the names of local plants and play carts with friends. But there are many very different homes in Germany without necessary relation, not even by language. We call ourselves "deutsch", which etymologically means "folk", but I think we're far from being a solidary "people", the result is strong materialism, search of security and retreat "at home".
