Islam Not Compatible with German Constitution, says AfD (Alternative for Deutschland) Party

From Reuters:
BERLIN (Reuters) - The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) said on Sunday Islam is not compatible with the German constitution and vowed to press for bans on minarets and burqas at its party congress in two weeks' time. 
The AfD punished Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats in three regional elections last month, profiting from popular angst about how Germany can cope with an influx of migrants, over a million of whom arrived last year. 
"Islam is in itself a political ideology that is not compatible with the constitution," AfD deputy leader Beatrix von Storch told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. "We are in favor of a ban on minarets, on muezzins and a ban on full veils," added Storch, who is a member of the European Parliament. 
Merkel's conservatives have also called for an effective ban on the burqa, saying the full body covering worn by some Muslim women should not be worn in public. But they have not said Islam is incompatible with Germany's constitution.
I don't know much about the AFD Party. I'd like to know if they are really "anti-immigrant" as REUTERS says. Or if they are merely anti-Islam.

Islam CAN NEVER be compatible in any nation or system where the PEOPLE are the sovereign, and rule, govern THEMSELVES.

That's it.

Case finished.

So sorry, world, but why is this not yet clear?
