One in five people living in Germany now comes from an immigrant background, according to figures released on Thursday. They show that the minority community grew by more than 1.3% last year at a time when the overall population is falling.

Figures from the German Federal Statistical Office show that the number of people with immigrant backgrounds living in Germany increased by 216,000 from 2010 to 2011. Multiculturalism has been a fiercely controversial topic in Germany in recent years, engendering vigorous debate over the integration of immigrants, many of whom moved to the country in the 1960s as guest workers from Turkey. There are now 16 million people with an immigrant background living in Germany – 19.5% of the country's population.

Younger people are starting to make an effort to reach out to the Turkish communities to integrate themselves with their neighbours. Marlene Schliepach, 26, is studying to become a kindergarten teacher and started learning Turkish two years ago in an effort to be able to talk to the children she will be caring for.

"I'm learning Turkish because I want to convey to my Turkish students that I, as their teacher, and as a German, value their language," she said. "Lots of teachers want to make them focus on only learning German. But integration has to go both ways."

Some, such as Tim Panhorst, 27, are learning Turkish because of family connections to the culture, but think it is important for Germans to attempt to reach out. "I wasn't really learning it from school, but from friends and relatives because my brother is married to a Turkish girl," he said.

"But when I meet Turkish people and speak to them in the language, my experience is that they are always glad someone German can. It's always a way of connecting, and in a positive way."

Tim, you're an idiot and I wouldn't want you teaching my kids, or anyone else's for that matter.

Yeah, a useful idiot no less.....The first signs of subjugation to a foreign culture...Have you NO pride in your own? It's the Turks who should be learning your language and integrating with you by respecting the host nation...Learning the language is fine but put your own heritage first or you'll lose it...

Btw, is the Turkish girl a muslim? I only ask because it is Haram (a sin and not allowed) for a muslim woman to marry someone who is not of the Islamic faith...The same does not apply to muslim men though....I wonder why???

According to the Talmud (search for "talmud uncensored") marriages between Christian and Jews null Eben Haezar 44,8
Apostates to be cast into well, not rescued Abhodah Zarah 26b
Baptized Jews are to be put to death Hilkhoth Akum X,2
Kill renegades who turn to Christian rituals Iore Dea 158,2
Strangely it appears there are a lot of similarities between jews and mooslims, dont overlook Zohar 11, 64b "Christian birth rate to be diminished materially"
jews are the biggest drivers of the multiculti invasion of the White countries - surprise surprise

Bertie, I don't think that many jews pay too much attention to the talmud, which is just as well, whereas muslims do pay attention to the koran.
You are right about jews (at least some of them) being the biggest drivers for the multicult invasion. Bit undecided about their motives, if i was a jew the last thing I'd want is loads of koranimals living near me.

You are right in all you say. Jewish intellectuals are mainly on the left, and they have been the main proponents of open borders, leading to the destruction of the West.

Laurence Auster has commented on this phenomenon quite often. It is almost as if Jews hate Christianity and the Christian West, with greater vehemence then their enmity with Islam.

We saw this in the recent rant by a Jewish commentator against present Germans. It never occurred to him to show any thought for 10 million Christians killed by the Nazis. No reparations or remorse by anyone here.

Theres some really rancid stuff in the talmud - heavily anti - Christian. It isnt correct to say jews dont pay much attention to the talmud, and the anti - Christian tenor obviously has more influence than we are able to divine. In Israel Christians are reguarly spat upon. If the third world invasion of the White countries continues Whites will eventually become minorities in most if not all of the Western countries. Jews are the main drivers of the multiculture - and by extension jews are the main drivers of the White extinction/genocide. Do we have to wait until 40 percent of Germans are foreign born before we realise we are looking at deliberate White genocide? When Whites constitute less than 50 percent of the French will we then say its White genocide? Its time to face the real truth about whats going on. If that means we have have to out the real architects of the White genocide then bring it on.

Sara Sontag (jew) stated "The White Race is the cancer of human history". If l were to state jews are the cancer of human history or blacks are the cancer of human history l would be charged with a hate crime and jailed. Apparently jews or anyone else who isnt White can say whatever they like about Whites no matter how demeaning or hateful. Its obvious Whites are marked for disappearance. Its time we acknowleged this.

Without the White race, Greco-Roman civilisation and Christianity, humanity would still be in the medieval dark age of the desert Arab or Jew.

ok, I hear this all the time. There are way too many jewicidal jews that embrace islam, communism, etc. etc. However, these jews are JINO (jews in name only)They are primarily progressives and not religious. Religious Jews are much more conservative and partner with Christians in their views (they aren't the idiots with a death wish importing islam). I went to hebrew school for over 13 years and NEVER studied the Talmud neither did anyone else I know. When I heard the rumors I was disgusted and yes prayed none of it was true. Here is a site that explains it (if I can put a link here) http://talmud.faithweb.com/. Please don't blame all of us for the few that would see us hanged as well. There are several conservative Jews that are just as adamant on the other side and fighting against Islam. No one says "Christians" are bringing the muslims in, because we don't see them as christians just immoral politicians. It's the same thing with the jews they are politicians first and the ones that import the muslims if you'll notice also detest the jews esp, israel..Sorry for rambling on, just didn't want all of you to believe all Jews are that stupid.
No one should be forced to learn Turkish, either they learn German BEFORE they immigrate as a condition of their immigration permit , or they shouldn't be allowed in period. Germany is GERMAN, France is French etc. etc. the EU is a disaster.

They shouldnt be allowed into Germany/Europe unless they are prepared to think, act and behave like Europeans at the very least. Otherwise we are back in the multiculti mode, and that will be that.

Clearly I'm in a minority here but I think that this is an incredibly positive article. Being open to other cultures doesn't mean you lose your own or that you don't have pride in your own traditions. It means that you can enrich your own personal experience and maybe find that you have many things in common with others. we shouldn't just focus on differences - that only leads to fear or hatred. If both parties begin to learn the others' languages, then they'll begin to understand each other and learn to live together without hassle. There's no mention of anyone being forced, these peple simply wanted to learn another language in addition to their own. This article may have been selected to show it in a negative light but thank you for sharing because I think it is a very positive move & I'm glad I was able to see it. Hope you have a great day.

Here in Canada people are already hiring lawyers and going to charge politicians with treason. We do not want to end up like Europe under any circumstances.

I sugest Europeans start doing the same before it's too late.
Merry Christmas:)
