The New Berlin Wall

The NY Times Magazine is running a fascinating article about the culture clash between Muslims and traditional Germans currently brewing in Berlin. It is extensive, focusing largely on the women’s rights issues, but also touching on the celebrations of 9/11 in some of Berlin’s muslim suburbs, honor killings of young people who choose to disregard muslim teachings, and government sponsored Islamic religious teachings in German schools. I highly recommend it. Read it here:

The New Berlin Wall by Peter Schnieder

It was interesting to me that Mr. Schnieder wrote the article in German and the Times had it translated.

UPDATE: Looks like there are similar issues in England.
