German Government Blames Muslim Anti-Semitism on “Right Wing,” Jews Claim
German Government Blames Muslim Anti-Semitism on “Right Wing,” Jews Claim

The German government is deliberately misclassifying anti-Israel and anti-Jewish incidents as being of “right wing” origin when in fact they are being committed by recent Muslim “immigrants,” a new report by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) has found.

Quoting Daniel Poensgen, a researcher at the Department for Research and Information on Anti-Semitism, or RIAS, the JTA said that recent outbursts at the annual “Quds Day” march in Berlin, had for example, been classified by the authorities as “forms of far-right anti-Semitism.”

Poensgen told the JTA that the Quds Day march example “and other mislabeled incidents are facilitating attempts to politicize anti-Semitism and complicating the apparently losing battle to solve it.”

“It means we can’t really use the official statistics on anti-Semitism in Germany,” Poensgen said.

During the Quds Day march—an annual even to express support for the Palestinians, with Al-Quds being the Arabic name for Jerusalem—participants allegedly made “frequent calls about killing Israelis, Zionist conspiracies and chants of ‘free Palestine from the river to the sea,’” the JTA article continued, adding that “Hamas and Hezbollah” flags are also on display, and that “imams regularly preach anti-Semitic verses from the Quran to the crowd in Farsi and Arabic.”

“Under the guise of ‘Israel criticism,’ they use classic anti-Semitic stereotypes, identifying Israel as having ‘Jewish characteristics’: ‘domineering,’ ‘greedy’ or a ‘child killer,’” sociologist Imke Kummer told the JTA. (...)
