Yes, Germany invited in a large number of Turkish and Arab “guest workers” in the 1960s and 70s. They have not had children and grandchildren. They speak German, and are better assimilated than the Muslims in France and the U.K. They are still not really German, however.

You can see this all played out in the different choices made by the Turkish German soccer players Hamit Altintop and Mesut Özil.

Very intere6ting and fairly written article. Is it Turkish? although I see it was translated from German.
This sentence jumped out:
“Ever since SPD politician Thilo Sarrazin blustered that migrants and in particular Muslim immigrants are diluting the supposedly high-grade German gene pool, the political establishment has found itself in a quandary.”

One last question: In Olympics did Ozil play for Germany? After his comments I would think so — better statement than any of the politicians.
