Alarming: German Muslim Students Favor Sharia Over Country's Own Laws

A shocking new study in Germany determined that many schoolchildren are converting to Islam in German schools because many Christian students feel like outsiders and are desperate to try and fit in.

Researchers from the Criminal Research Institute of Lower Saxony recently conducted a study in which 308 Muslim students were surveyed and asked various questions about religion, society, and governance. 

The study found many surprising results. For instance, 67.8% of the surveyed students agree that the Quran is more important than the laws of Germany, and nearly half of the respondents (45.6%) also believe that Islamic theocracy is the best form of government.

More than half (or 51.5%) of the respondents claim that only Islam would be able to solve the problems of our time, while 36.5% of the students said that German society should be structured more according to Islamic rules.

Questions on violence against non-Muslims also showed shocking beliefs held by the Muslim students surveyed. For example, more than a third (35.3%) of them said they understand violence against those who insult Allah or the Prophet Muhammad. 

Meanwhile, 21.2% of the respondents think that the threat to Islam from the Western world justifies how Muslims violently defend themselves, and 18.% also agree that violence is justifiable if it’s used to spread and implement Islam. 

In several German cities like Berlin and Frankfurt, Muslim children make up more than 80 percent of the student body, which experts claim is due to the substantial immigration in Germany in the past eight years. Many of these students also come from strictly religious families in countries such as Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, where people live according to the morals and tenets set by the Quran and the Sharia law.

Carl Philipp Schroeder from the Criminal Research Institute of Lower Saxony told local media that “the data in the latest Lower Saxony survey gives cause for concern and shows how important political education is in schools.

Politicians and experts were horrified with the results of the study, with politicians from both the right-wing Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and left-wing Social Democratic Party (SPD) expressing their concern about the rise of Islamism among students in German schools.’

The study shows how deep the traces that the political Islam has already left in Germany are.” Christoph de Vries from the Christian Democratic Union said regarding the study.

Ksenija Bekeris of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) found the study’s findings alarming and called for a “significant strengthening of democracy education in schools.

In an interview with the German tabloid Bild, a state security officer said that “more and more parents of German children are turning to counseling centers because the Christian children want to convert so that they are no longer outsiders at school.

When girls at school behave too westernized in the eyes of Muslim young people, don't wear a headscarf or meet boys, the male students think they have to defend their honor and warn the girls to behave like a devout Muslim,” the state security officer said. “In addition, there is also peer pressure: you want to belong.

The state security officer also discussed the role social media plays in disseminating Islamist propaganda, adding that Islamist pop stars and influencers are using TikTok and other platforms to “convince students that they have to oppose the Western way of life.
