A new study shows Germans with increasing frequency are feeling alarmed at the mass inflow of Muslim migrants making their way into the country, and roughly a third of them don’t even recognize their communities any longer.

Specifically, the study found about 34 percent either “completely” or “slightly” agree with this statement: “Because of the many Muslims, I sometimes feel like a stranger in my own country.”

The study, courtesy of the nonprofit Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung organization, posed the question in response to the more than one million refugees Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel has allowed into the country in 2015. Most come from the Middle East and North Africa, areas of heavy Muslim populations.

Angela MerkelAngela Merkel has been facing heavy criticism from her German constituents for letting in more than one million refugees in 2015.

As the Daily Caller reported, not all react to the feeling of strangeness the same way:

“However, many Germans perhaps don’t see their feelings of being a stranger as a bad thing, as 86.1 percent of respondents agreed that ‘(p)eople who flee from wars should be taken into Germany.’”

Merkel, meanwhile, has been facing harsh criticism for her refugee policy, and it’s not clear if she’ll be able to overcome enough to win a fourth term.
