Germany: Far-right violence and Islamist threat on the rise

The number of far-right violent crimes rose to 1,600 in 2016 – up from 1,408 in 2015 – the report said, and came alongside an overall rise in the number of neo-Nazis considered “violence-orientated:” 12,100 in 2016, up from 11,800 in 2015. The intelligence agency now believes that more than half of far-right extremists in Germany were potentially violent.

At the same time, the BfV believes there are now more Islamists in Germany, and therefore the chance of an Islamist attack remains high. The number of ultra-conservative “Salafists” in Germany rose last year to 10,100 – up from 8,350 the year before. Of these, some 680 have been classified as “Gefährder ( in German) or endangerer – more than ever before.

Last year also saw a rise in left-wing extremism, with the BfV estimating that some 8,500 leftist extremists are “violence-orientated.” De Maiziere used the opportunity raise the prospect of an increased threat of left-wing violence during the G20 summit in Hamburg this week.

    So, Germany has reclassified any crime not committed by a known Islamic terrorist as a “far right crime”?
    That’s the only way they could have generated these numbers.

      the government generates these stats, from their own gerrymandered reports, and to serve their own propaganda goals

      never trust anything these scumbag Marxist governments release as “facts”

    • Living in the same city as Muslims is a hate crime.

    In Germany:

    “far-right violent crimes” = posting the truth about Islam on Facebook

  • WalterBannon

    In Germany:

    Muslims raping women = “mental illness” instead of Islamist violence, that is when the police even decide to accept the report from the victim instead of dismissing it as racist

    remember who classifies, compiles and generates these fake statistics and what agenda they serve. nothing from these governments can be trusted

    Fake statistics from a fake government

    The only reason the Far Right is rising, is that the people feel that the elite won’t listen to them or offer any solutions that they demand. Hence, why they turn to extremists.

      “why they turn to extremists”

      It is not extremist to turn to solutions that are known to work when “experimental” solutions fail. It is called facing reality.

    “Far right” code for anyone who stands up to the muslims and the communists.

    In large part it was the political violence of the Weimar Republic that gave rise to the Third Reich. The more things change in Germany, the more things stay the same, it seems.
