German Government and Police Criticized Again for Downplaying Islamic Involvement in Antisemitic Offenses

It’s a glaring omission considering Germany admits that Muslim anti-Semitism is rampant.  The German government just published an official report outlining ‘Anti-Semitism in Islamism.’

German Government and Police Criticized Again for Downplaying Islamist Involvement in Antisemitic Offenses

By: Ben Cohen, Algemeiner, May 15, 2019:

Official German government statistics on rising antisemitism came under criticism on Wednesday, as several observers charged that the data was based on the incorrect assumption that far right activists are to blame for the vast bulk of anti-Jewish incidents in the country — despite evidence from Jewish victims indicating that Muslims influenced by Islamist and antisemitic beliefs are behind an increasing number of these outrages.

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer revealed at a press conference on Tuesday that antisemitic crimes in Germany rose by 20 percent in 2018. “This is a development that we have to confront, especially in this country,” Seehofer said, in a reference to Germany’s Nazi past.

But some reporters questioned the claim of both Seehofer and German federal police chief Holger Münch that far right activists were behind 90 percent of the antisemitic offenses.

In response, both men insisted that the police practice of automatically categorizing as “far right” those antisemitic crimes where the motives were unclear made practical sense — “otherwise there we would be the accusation that we are blind to the right,” Seehofer explained.
