German Anti-Semitism Chief Tells Jews: Your Fears over Influx of Muslim, Arab Refugees Legitimate
The German government’s first special envoy to the Jewish community has warned that Jews’ fear over the influx of Muslim, Arab refugees is legitimate.Dr. Felix Klein also counseled German Jewish men to exercise caution before appearing in public spaces wearing the traditional kippah headpiece.
Dr. Klein chose an interview with the Times of Israel to reveal his concerns for Jews on the same day rallies took place across the country supporting Jewish people after a spate of shocking anti-Semitic assaults. One such rally in Berlin ended early when angry counter-protesters shouted “terrorists”, spat at them, and snatched their Israeli flag, organisers said.
As for the future, Dr Klein said that Germany’s Jewish population had legitimate fears because of the influx of almost one million mostly Muslim immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa sparked in 2015 by chancellor Angela Merkel.
German Jews have long warned that many of the new arrivals hail from countries where hatred of Jews and of the State of Israel were taught from an early age.FULL STORY AND PICS HERE:
