Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Then again, you are someone reading beyond the catchy headlines.

By the way: the "extra" one million are the result of doing statistics more properly. Until now, the only way to count "Muslims" (more correctly: immigrants from Muslim countries and their descendants) was to add the current figures for resident foreign nationals and the sum total of foreign nationals given a German pass over the past 20 years, for those Muslim countries of origin for which the statistics office gave figures.

So the "extra" 1 million comes from counting/estimating the remaining countries of origin, and the children of the nationalised (and substracting the dead...).
