Germans hold negative views about Islam and a big majority believe there is a “clash of civilizations” following the attack on a school on southern Russia earlier this month, a poll said.
The survey was taken after the Russian school massacre.
When asked what they think of in association with the word “Islam” some 93 percent of Germans said “oppression of women”, 83 percent said “terror”, 82 percent said “fanatics and radicals”, 70 percent said “dangerous”, 66 per cent said “backward”, 45 percent said “hospitality” and 6 percent said both “tolerance” and “nice”. A survey before the terrorist attack on the Russian school in Beslan showed 44 percent of Germans believed there was a clash of civilizations between Islam and the Christian world.
But asked the same question after the Beslan attack, some 62 percent said there is now a clash of civilizations.
