A new study by the Bertelsmann Foundation shows that most people in Spain, Switzerland, France, East Germany, and Israel believe that Islam does not "fit" in the Western world. Of those polled in Canada, the United States, West Germany, Sweden, and Great Britain, less than half (though more than 40%) said that Islam does not fit in the West. Is this evidence of widespread racism and bigotry among developed nations, or are people simply concerned about Muhammad's teachings and their impact on society?
(Note: "Der Islam passt nicht in die westliche Welt" = "Islam does not fit in the Western world." "Stimme dem zu, in Prozent" = Percentage who agree.)
