ABSTRACT: In the last decade, the German society has witnessed an increase of discrimination attitudes towards immigrants that are coming either from Africa, Middle East or Eastern European countries. These attitudes are based on a divided society which is being poisoned by cons behaviors. Social disintegration has become dangerous due the the immigrants crisis from September 2015 and the latest events from New Year’s Eve 2015/2016 of violence against Germans. More and more segments of German society believe that they are more valuable than the others citizens who are living in Germany. The German government admitted to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in Geneva in May 2015 that "Racism in Germany is not only found in extreme right-wing circles, but in all parts of society." The Germans fear not only about their own security, but also about the future of their country. In the last months, the Germans have questioned their politicians, and especially Chancellor Angela Merkel, about the direction in which their country is going since more than one million immigrants came to Germany in 2015. And the number could increase in 2016 due to the fact that the conflicts in Middle East are not about to end soon. Germans ask themselves why Merkel has allowed them to come to Germany so easily since they do not speak German. The lack of language knowledge, the differency between cultures, European versus Arabic, the different religions, Christianity versus Islamism, the different education level represent important factors who determine a reserved attitude when it comes to integrate and assimilate the immigrants in the German society. The Germans are afraid that their identity as a nation, as sovereign and dominant state will fade in time because of the assimilation of Muslisms in their country. It has been difficult to accept the Turks and the Eastern European citizens such as Russians, Polish, Romanians and Bulgarians in their society after 1990. And the tendency of rejection increases because the current immigrants who have come to Germany are violent and produce a huge prejudice to the entire population. Not a long time ago, it was totally safe to walk on the streets of Germany without fearing that something bad may occur. This situation has changed because the immigrants capture neighbourhoods in Germany and they basically form a little Muslim state in a German city. For sure, the political approach of Merkel from the last months will be reflected in the next elections results. Merkel’s main political ally, the CSU (Christian Social Union) party, is considering redrawing the political support of the current government. CSU is the leading party in the richest Germany’s region, Bavaria. Bavarian Prime-Minister and CSU leader, Horst Seehofer, tends to adopt a more and more eurosceptic attitude towards Merkel’s plans related to immigrants. Bavaria itself is the most significant contributor to the German overall economy, having the lowest unemployed rates, but also the biggest tax rates in all the country. Bavarians have recently stated that their region should introduce security controls again at their borders in order to prevent the terrorist acts and the immigrants run in Germany. This being said, it will be very interesting to analyze the current situation of the immigrants in Germany, the political approaches towards immigrants in the electoral campaings and the situation of the Muslims that are living in Germany. In this article, I also intend to overview the discrimination in the German society from the Standard Eurobarometers perspectives which contain valuable information obtained directly from the German citizens.
