Monoculturalism is dead: Multiculturalism has yet to come
In Germany, conservatives criticize a pastiche of multiculturalism to justify authoritarian policies and deflect attention from decades of neglect, argues Claus Leggewie. Failure to recognize Muslims as part of society is to risk repeating an historical mistake. [more]

It's visions like this that are leading more and more Germans to see the construction of mosques as the expression of a "kind of land grab," observes Claus Leggewie, a political science professor at the University of Giessen in the western state of Hesse.
This impression is aggravated not only by right-wing agitators but also, according to Leggewie, by careless or sometimes even deliberately provocative statements by Muslim builders.
...
In place of the "fairy tale that we're all 'children of Abraham'," in the words of Leggewie, the churches are now making an effort not to entangle themselves in finding contrived common ground with Islam.
...
When Leggewie gives out advice, he says that mosques should be built without the classic soaring towers -- on practical grounds. "As soon as a mosque differs from the look of the city around it through its ‘foreign' form," Leggewie reasons, "you can count on greater resistance, which often necessitates more involved authorization procedures."
"The traditional style underscores, even unintentionally," Leggewie adds, "the orientation of Muslims toward the areas most important to Islam and toward their homelands." And lastly, he points out, the Middle Eastern style of a mosque with minarets is "by no means compulsory."

"Muslims have come out...and have become visible," says Claus Leggewie, a political scientist at Germany's University of Giessen who wrote a study on the evolution of the mosque landscape in Germany.

A handful of mosques 10 years ago have swollen to 164, and close to 200 more are under construction across Germany, says Claus Leggewie, co-author of "Mosques in Germany - religious home and societal challenge."

"Mosques demonstrate the presence and self-confidence of Muslim immigration in Europe - the attitude is now, 'We're building because we want to stay here,' " says Mr. Leggewie, a social scientist at the University of Giessen.

But Leggewie says German Muslims are now engaging broader society when they solicit plans for their houses of worship, creating more understanding and lessening resentment - and the occasional conflicts that came with it.

"Clearly, there is dissatisfaction on both sides," said Claus Leggewie, director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities in Essen.

Not every opponent of the rail project will necessarily vote Green, however, said Leggewie. "Such movements are never automatical ly left or right. In a way, Stuttgart 21 has some aspects of the Tea Party movement," he said, referring to the conservative movement to the right of the US Republican Party.
...
Leggewie saw "a classic constellation" for the birth of a populist right-wing party in Germany, including debate about the influence of Islam and a "general sense of crisis". While he estimated such a movement could gain 15 percent support, pollsters Emnid have predicted such a group could get as much as 20 percent support.
