Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
hmm I can see, that the headlines are rather catching, but I what I got was the sense in all the articles, saying the public perception is wrong on all counts, starting with the numbers.

Not: There are so many, be afraid! Rather: There are so many, see you didn;t notice because they are so well integrated.

And how would you know that there are so many that are so well integrated when all you always hear are the conflicts but then there are the examples, swimming lessons and sex education (8% of Muslim girls are not allowed to attend sex ed compared to 15% of strong christian girls) - those are hot topics as example of integration - but they only concern a minority of Muslim in Germany.

I got the sense of surprise in these articles, and a positive surprise that our assumptions about integration of Muslims in Germany are wrong.
