German Chancellor Merkel warns of rising anti-Semitism on Holocaust Remembrance Day.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned of rising anti-Semitism in her country on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, calling the need to protect Jewish buildings “shameful.”
It is important to remember the millions of Holocaust victims because “anti-Semitism, racism and the hatred of others are more relevant” recently, Merkel said in her weekly podcast on Saturday.
“It is inconceivable and shameful that no Jewish institution can exist without police protection, whether it is a school, a kindergarten or a synagogue,” she said.
The chancellor also reaffirmed her support of creating the position of anti-Semitism commissioner in the next German government, if her party can finalize tortuous negotiations to forge a coalition.
The commissioner would be appointed to counter growing hate speech against Jews and Israel in German from both its home-grown far-right and some recent migrants in the Muslim community.
Brave German women will protest against Muslim migrant violence today, yet the entire world will ignore their despair and label them ISLAMOPHOBIC
After an explosion of migrant violence, a lot of Germans are done with it and have started protesting.
Last weekend a group of 2,500 people protested against migrant violence in Cottbus and this Sunday women want to protest in Kandel. The city is a symbolic place, because a 15-year-old girl was brutally murdered there, by an Afghan migrant.
The women will protest for the future of their children and say “this is the a starting signal for an alliance of women and mothers who no longer want to hide in the future. It’s enough! Because Kandel is everywhere”!
The demonstration against migrant violence will start at 3 pm local time, on Sunday in Kandel and the women invite everyone to join them.
According to the YouTube promotion video, the planned demonstration is organised by women and mothers and it is the answer to the “irresponsibility of the masses, which made innumerable amount of violence in the country possible”.
A member of Merkel’s party seems to agree with the statement. The CDU party member and civil rights activist Vera Lengsfeld says: “Since the murder of Kandel, we hear about new acts of violence almost every day”. She gives several examples of serious acts of violence committed by migrants.
