Ahead of the Whitsun weekend, the federal states are worried that there will be renewed riots at Anti-Israel rallies could come. Security authorities cannot be surprised. "We have always had such disputes," Jorg Radek, deputy head of the police union (GdP), told our editorial team. In 2020, the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) registered more anti-Semitic crimes than ever before: 2351.
Union faction leader Ralph Brinkhaus sees anti-Semitism "among a small proportion" of Muslims in Germany. "We have to ask ourselves, when people come to us, to what extent we can demand that they share our values. Because our values also include the protection of Jewish life."Who does not respect that, has forfeited his right as a guest here, he said ntv.
Anti-Semitism in Germany is mainly related to right-wing extremism
Hostility to Jews has no migration background. It is largely homemade and right-wing extremist. In the left-wing spectrum and among Muslim demonstrators, anti-Semitism is directed specifically against Israel. For the German government's anti-Semitism commissioner, Felix Klein, Israel-related hatred of Jews is "the most widespread form of anti-Semitism".
