One of their biggest tell-tale signs of not taking Jew hatred seriously, is their importation of millions of antisemitic Muslims into their country. The rest of much of Europe behaving in the same way.
“The Germans are very good in hiding their anti-Semitism from themselves.They are world champions in building memorials, but the danger is that they are burying their anti-Semitism under those monuments until they think that it doesn’t exist anymore.”
Anti-Semitism in Germany mars International Holocaust Remembrance Day
The legacy of anti-Semitism still haunts Germany.
The evidence, as Germany marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Saturday, is unavoidable. There are swastikas on buildings, desecrated Jewish cemeteries, anti-Semitic comments flooding social media, Israeli flags burned at demonstrations and physical assaults on Jews.
“It seems like Germany has been hit by a new wave of hatred for everything Jewish,” Marcel Furstenau, a commentator for Deutsche Welle, Germany’s international public broadcaster, told Fox News.
According to the latest figures available from the Ministry of the Interior, there were 1,468 anti-Semitic offenses reported in 2016.
Jewish leaders like Charlotte Knobloch, president of the Jewish Community of Munich and Northern Bavaria, express frustration with the situation. Knobloch laments the fact that, more than 70 years after the Holocaust, Jewish public life is not possible without police protection.
Hatred emanating from the more than 4 million Muslims living in Germany exacerbates traditional forms of anti-Semitism.
“Muslims blindly accept anti-Semitism and transport it unfiltered as it is practiced in their former homelands,” said Knobloch, who praises Germany as a freedom-loving country committed to democratic values.
