These numbers don’t sound all that high, but there aren’t that many Jews in Germany. For obvious reasons. Much of Germany’s Jewish population consists of Russian immigrants, many of them non-Jewish, but who found it convenient to move to a wealthier country. The actual number of Jews, measured by community affiliation, is much smaller than the 100,000 statistic that has often been quoted. It’s some tens of thousands. The Muslim population is far larger and proving to be more aggressive.
In a major break with the past, the German agency for domestic security — Bundesamt fuer Verfassungsschutz — has published a 40-page report whose title translates as “Antisemitism in Islamism.” The report defines Islamism as a form of political extremism among Muslims that wants to eliminate democracy, and where antisemitism is an essential ideological element…
The study concludes that the more than 100 antisemitic incidents officially caused by Muslims in 2017 are most likely only the tip of the iceberg. Due to the importance of the government agency that has published this report, Muslim antisemitism in Germany has now finally been officially detailed to the public. This has been lacking for far too long.
No doubt they are.
But the numbers are still quite high considering that the number of Jews is small, and while there is a large Muslim population, it’s still a fraction of the overall German population.
