Germany’s new interior minister has waded straight into controversy by claiming that Islam is not a key part of the German way of life.

Hans-Peter Friedrich, who took office last week in a cabinet reshuffle, stoked an increasingly serious row about immigration in his country when he told journalists: ‘Islam in Germany is not something supported by history at any point.’

Mr Friedrich was speaking in the context of an inquiry into the killing last week of two U.S. airmen at Frankfurt Airport. The suspect, 21-year-old Kosovan Arid Uka, is believed to be a lone operator motivated by radical Islamist beliefs.

Mr Friedrich later emphasised his position, saying that immigrants ought to be aware of Germany’s ‘western Christian origins’ and learn German ‘first and foremost’.

His comments were a play on the words of German President Christian Wulff, who in an attempt to defuse the integration row, has said that Islam now ‘belongs to Germany’ because of the four million Muslims who live there. Germany has western Europe’s second-biggest Islamic population after France with Turkish the single biggest minority.
