Skulle det lykkedes Tyrkiet at komme ind I EU, vil tallet selvfølgelig blive meget større. Dertil skal selvfølgelig bemærkes, at så snart en muslim er 3. generation i f.eks. Danmark, så vil han tælle som “dansker” i statistikkern, og det er altså ikke længere muligt at finde ud af, om personen kommer fra et muslimsk land. Mange “danskere” er således muslimer, og taller er altså højere:
“Last year, five per cent of the total population of the 27 EU countries was Muslim. But rising levels of immigration from Muslim countries and low birth rates among Europe’s indigenous population mean that, by 2050, the figure will be 20 per cent, according to forecasts.
Data gathered from various sources indicate that Britain, Spain and Holland will have an even higher proportion of Muslims in a shorter amount of time.
The UK, which currently has 20 million fewer people than Germany, is also projected to be the EU’s most populous country by 2060, with 77 million people.
The findings have led to allegations that policy-makers are failing to confront the widespread challenges of the “demographic time bomb”.
Experts say that there has been a lack of debate on how the population chawill affect areas of life from education and housing to foreign policy and pensions.
Although some polls have pointed to a lack of radicalisation in the Muslim community, little attention is being given to the integration of migrants, it is claimed, with fears of social unrest in years to come.”
