Germans debate how to combat ‘imported anti-Semitism’

(RNS) — Germany is rethinking its approach to combating anti-Semitism after a protest against President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital turned the anti-Jewish prejudices of some Muslim immigrants into a national issue.

In the month since immigrants burned an Israeli flag at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and chanted anti-Semitic slogans, politicians have proposed appointing a federal commissioner on hate crimes against Jews, making Auschwitz visits obligatory for newcomers and requiring German history tests in cultural integration courses.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s struggle to form a government after an inconclusive general election on Sept. 24 has held up any clear decisions on the issue.

    Are the Auschwitz visits so that muzzies can study the procedures?

    • ismiselemeas

      They’re the only buildings they’re not planning to blow up.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Just rebrand it as the regular old normal indigenous German antisemitism.

  • simus1

    Arrest die merkelbeest.
    Do mass arrests of muslim security risks.
    Use those arrested as free labour” to build detention camps.
    More mass arrests of those protesting the first mass arrest.
    Use their “free labour” to build deportation camps.
    Sign various agreements with various African countries to teach trades in road building, rock breaking , etc. in their most deprived areas
    Start flying in the first cohorts to begin their new classes.

    Next. NEXT !!

    Do you really belive They diden’t knew what they let in?

    • caliroxanne

      This is exactly why they let them in. Europe’s love affair with Muslims is largely based on the hope that the Muslims will finish where Hitler left off.

      • vwVwwVwv

        Not europ’s the Socialists, the same reason
        democrats and other liberals love Islam,
        first the Saturday, than the Sunday People.
        It’s their fight against western values, the
        fight Judeo Christian values is simply Islam,
        it fights Jews and Christians.

      Didn’t Merkel promise that the refugees would solve Germany’s “Jewish Problem”?

      • vwVwwVwv

        No it was like Muslims are the New Jews and to hinder them to kill the old Jews would be Raceist, can’t remember exactly, she uses to bubble a lot, no one can follow her…

      • Watchman

        “New migrants to Germany must visit Nazi concentration camp memorials to help tackle a perceived rise in anti-Semitism, Germany’s Central Council of Jews said on Wednesday, supporting a proposal by a Palestinian-German politician.”

        I wonder if they ever legislate this requirement of ‘refugees’ (immigrants) visiting the camp, that the Germans and migrants will call this the “Unfinished Business” tour, or maybe the “Penultimate Solution” tour?

  • LKurc

    Seriously? Anti-semitism needs to be imported into Germany? Germany provides a very rich soil for the muslim version of Jew hatred to grow in. After centuries of persecution culminating in the Shoah why would anyone even suggest that this hatred needs to be brought in from the outside.

  • Dana Garcia

    Germany doesn’t need to import anti-semites, although diverse ones distract from homegrown.

  • Ego

    Germans should take 10 minutes to listen to this:

    The difference between “do-gooders” and good people is that the latter take responsibility for what they propose, in contrast to the do-gooders who don’t.
    German “Gutmenschen” (do-gooders) thought it was a good idea to import Islam (“Willkommenskultur”, “We can do it!”) without knowing what Islam actually is and what it does to any society it takes root in. They also thought and still think that anybody opposing this is vile and must be intimidated and suppressed. Stupidity can kill.

  • Watchman

    The Germans are trying to reduce the incidence of anti-semitism by encouraging the German Jews to GTF out of Germany.

    When I lived in the West end of Toronto there was a Catholic based refugees Centre on Bloor st. that opened in the 1980’s after a Catholic minister was killed in a Central American Country that oppressed their people and go shelter in the Church.
    But those good intentions to help Catholics died quickly when they saw how much money there was in illegals from the USA crossing into canada because even Lawyers next to the Centre got the business for their Legal Ad and then Donated money back to them for the Charity receipt . The Centre also bought up 4 houses in the area and got about $200,000.00 from the CAW when Peggy Nash was employed there and became the MP in that area later on.

    One Friday evening I saw about 25 people in the Office with Palestinian flags
    and a few with the pro-hamas scarfs. Later I saw on the News that the hard-core jew-haters had planned a huge protest at the US Consulate on University ave .
    The CRA forbids a Charity to be a Political wing to protest the Government because it’s mission is for the Social good but somehow when the Charity is bashing the Jews and the USA…..the local MP and MPP give it a pass because it gets them votes.

    The refugees Centre is near the Liberal MP’s Office while they both are just North of the Jew-hating mosque on Boustead ave that invited Mohamad Elmasry to speak one night even when they knew he declared all person in Israel over 19 as valid targets for hamas to kill because of the Military Service .

    Each time I see an Imam claim they run the Peaceful mosque that reject hate…’s seems to be a code to other muslims that behind closed door we obey the quran to kill the jews and homosexuals .
    Every female going to that Mosque wears the hijab while the Mosque had lied earlier to claim they were their since 1919 when muslims fled Europe. It was a Church until 1968 when it was sold to become a mosque.
    The first Mosque in Canada was about 1939 and it was out West because a few self-identifying muslims did flee Europe about 1860 to Come to Canada but it took about 90 years for the population to need a Mosque. The locals helped build it and it was never vandalized by white-supremacists.
    In the 1990’s the Saudi’s funded CAIR-canada to stir up trouble and push islamophobia while it also incited hatred for canada which is why the Jihad plots started and are more frequent now where Toronto’s City Hall had to put Cement barriers around it.

    Allah doesn’t care what Justin’s think about islam…..allah handed down a manual to the followers and it makes it clear to kill all the jews because the end times won’t comes until they are gone .
