Germany is home to around three million Turkish immigrants and their descendents, the world's largest Turkish diaspora and Germany's largest ethnic minority.

Berlin -- Forty-five percent of Turkish immigrants in Germany feel unwelcome, and 82 percent think their host country should do more to accommodate them, a survey showed on Thursday.

Germany is home to around three million Turkish immigrants and their descendents, the world's largest Turkish diaspora and Germany's largest ethnic minority.

A damning report published in February found that although many Turks have been in Germany for nearly 50 years they are the least well integrated of all immigrant communities.

Other recent surveys have shown that they are more likely to leave school without qualifications than the overall population, more likely to be unemployed and below the poverty line.

This latest survey was carried out by research institutes Info and Antalya-based Liljeberg Research International.

    Could it be that the Germans are hostile to all their minorities ? First it was the Jews, now the Turks.
