What is going on in Germany, the world's second most popular destination for immigrants? Has the open-mindedness for which Germans had long been praised now ended? Are we seeing a return of the vague fear of being overwhelmed by immigrants that Germany experienced in the 1990s, when a hostel for asylum seekers was burned down? How large is the new right-wing movement, and will it remain limited to Dresden, or is it spreading nationwide?

2nd most popular, really? Maybe they're having ethnic/conservative growing pains, which I first realized around the World Cup time.

It's clear that the right wing movement does not represent the whole country.

It's unclear how much of the country really supports the right wing movement.
