Germany: Government Official Warns Jews Against Wearing Kippah

Germany: Government Official Warns Jews Against Wearing Kippah

“I can’t advise Jews to wear kippah at all times and everywhere in Germany”

The German government’s commissioner for Antisemitism has warned Jews living in Germany against wearing Kippah, or the Jewish skullcap, in public. “I can’t advise Jews to wear Kippah at all times and everywhere in Germany. I have to say this with regret,” Felix Klein, who heads the German government’s Antisemitism office, told German newspaper group Funke.

The German official’s remarks come amid a sharp rise in violent antisemitic attacks across the country. He blamed far-right groups for carrying out most of the attacks, but admitted that Muslims were among the culprits too. Pinning the blame on Arabic language media for inciting Jews-hatred among German Muslims, he added that “many of them watched TV networks that presented a reprehensible image of Israel and the Jews.”

The remarks come just weeks after Germany’s domestic spy agency warned of growing Muslim Antisemitism in the country. “Muslim Antisemitism poses a significant threat to German society,” the intelligence assessment said.

German newspaper Die Welt reported:

“I can’t advise Jews to wear Kippah at all times and everywhere in Germany,” Felix Klein told the Funke regional press group. He “regretted changing his previously held” opinion in this regard.

The reason was “the lifting of inhibitions and the uncouthness which is on the rise in society,” that was becoming the breeding ground for Antisemitism. Around 90 percent of the crimes were committed by right-wing radicals, he said. In case of Muslim perpetrators, it is mostly those who have been residing in German for a long time. “Many of them watched TV networks that presented a reprehensible image of Israel and the Jews.”

In light of sharp increase in antisemitic crimes in Germany, Klein demanded training for police officers and other civil servants. There is “a lot of uncertainty among the policemen and government employees when it comes to dealing with Antisemitism,” he said. Many don’t know “what’s allowed and what’s not.” There isn’t any clear definition of Antisemitism, and that must be taught in police academies. “Equally important was the training of teachers and judges,” the Antisemitism commissioner said. [Translation by the author]

Germany’s Antisemitism commissioner is not the only one to suggest such drastic measures. Rabbis in several German cities have urged Jewish congregations to hide their religious identity in public to avoid harassment and assaults. an estimated 70 percent of German Jews have stopped wearing Kippah and other religious symbols to avoid antisemitic attacks, according to German media reports.

Hate crimes against Jews “rose from 1,504 in 2017 to 1,799 last year, an increase of 19.6%,” German state broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported last week, citing statistics released by the German Interior Ministry. The situation is even worse in Germany’s capital Berlin, where antisemitic attacks rose by 155 percent in 2018, compared to the previous year, data collected by Berlin-based Research and Information Center for Antisemitism (RIAS) showed. Notably, hate crimes against Muslims receded during the same period, official figures indicated.

Meanwhile, the German authorities and the political class are exerting enormous effort to downplay surging Muslim Antisemitism. When Muslim demonstrators chanted “death to Jews” in Berlin in response to the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Chancellor Angela Merkel refused to address Muslim Antisemitism. She merely condemned “all forms of Antisemitism and xenophobia.”

A recent German government study concluded that Antisemitism among German Muslims was a result of ‘Islamophobia’ they experience in the country. “Many Muslims justify their own Antisemitism and misanthropic attitudes with the fact ‘that they feel devalued and discriminated’ by growing Islamophobia,” Die Welt reported citing a study by the Federal Agency for Civic Education, or BPB.

The Antisemitism commissioner’s latest statement is an admission of defeat by the German state in the face of rising Jew hatred. It is also a scathing indictment of post-war Germany, where Jews are again being harassed and assaulted for no other crime than being Jewish, a mere seven decades after the Holocaust.

“a mere seven decades after the Holocaust” – It has gone from you better dang well identify yourselves as Jewish to, uh, you might not want to be so obvious that you are. Sounds as though Germans learned little by their defeat if they’re so willing to travel down a road which previously proved to be so disastrous for so many.

It defies belief that, after contemplating the unprecedented destruction and death wrought by the goose-stepping National Socialist jackboots during World War II, contemporary German politicians, such as the insufferable and self-congratulatory Merkel, believe that it is a laudable idea to import millions of goose-stepping Islamic National Socialist jackboots (AKA, “Muslims”), to allow them to practice an alternative brand of supremacism, totalitarianism, belligerence, violence and Jew-hatred, under the dark banner of an ideology called “Submission.”

The replacing of German National Socialism with Islamic National Socialism, rationalized by a vanity-driven, multi-culturalist moral relativism, and, enabled by an appalling level of historical/theological ignorance/stupidity, will go down as one of history’s most self-destructive and foolish acts.

    After reading your comment and re-reading mine, it reminded me of a Peanuts strip.

    Lucy, Linus, and Charlie Brown are lying on their back, looking upwards as the sky.
    Lucy says, “Aren’t the clouds beautiful? They look like big ball of cotton … I could lay here all day and watch they drift by … I fyou use your imagination you can see lots of things in the cloud formations … What do you think you see, Linus?”

    Linus replies, “Well, those clouds up there look to me like the map of the British Honduras on the Caribbean. That cloud up there looks a little like the profile of Thomas Eakins, the famous painter and sculptor. And, that group of clouds over there gives me the impression of the stoning of Stephen … I can see the Apostle Paul standing there to one side.”

    Lucy, “Uh, huh … That’s very good. What do you see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?”

    Charlie Brown says, “Well, I was going to say I saw a ducky and a horsie, but Ichanged my mind!”

    Your comment is very Linus-like while mine, well …

    Not foolish at all. All according to plan. The Volk didn’t manage to eliminate those pestilential Jews when they tried to do it themselves, so they’ve called in experts this time around.

Insanity. Pure insanity.

“Around 90 percent of the crimes were committed by right-wing radicals, he said.”

I’m sure there are right-wing A-holes who do bad things to those of Jewish faith but it seems to me after reading this article that the German government is continually trying to downplay the true source in the rise of attacks: Islam.

Look at this garbage from Germany: “A recent German government study concluded that Antisemitism among German Muslims was a result of ‘Islamophobia’ they experience in the country.”

Has Germany not paid any attention to the behavior of Islamic followers in the Middle East countries? The same countries that are the source of the immigrants coming into Germany?

They are blaming Muslim behavior on German citizens instead of putting the blame where it belongs which is again on Islam. Muslim antisemitism is not coming from German Islamophobia. It’s coming from a culture and religion that is hostile to all other religions and societies.

It’s Islam and until Islam reforms or is wiped off the face of the Earth it will be Islam that is making trouble for not only those of Jewish faith but also all the other religions on Earth.

Die Welt is a conservative news outlet like Merkel is a conservative politician. The editorial board is hard left.

I’ve read countless German articles describing ‘hooded or masked’ men attacking Jews or Jewish shopkeepers where the attackers immediately flee the scene – and Die Welt then leaps to the conclusion that the attackers are alt-right haters. I suspect the reality of the thing is much different.

I’ve watched German video of violent leftist rallies where anarcho-leftists and Syrian men are displaying anti-semitic placards. Screen caps of one video show leaders of a black bloc faction rioting alongside Palestinian hate groups.

If you are a Jew, you have to be OUT OF YOUR MIND to remain in Germany or France.

Stick a fork in it: it’s done.

    Agreed, but, as during World War II, not every Jew has the financial resources and/or the ability to immigrate to a more hospitable country, in the interest of self-preservation.

    Plus, fiscal implications aside, I’m sure many of them — rightly — ask the question of why the hell they should move from their homes, in order to accommodate/capitulate to, Islamic National Socialism? Many of these French and German Jews have lived in their respective countries for centuries. The same cannot be said of the recent Muslim imports.

And we need more Muslim “refugees” like Ilihan Omar and Rashida Talib shouting “death to Jews!, Death to Muslims!) to come here – HAIS can provide support – so that we can have the same thing happen here.

US Christians provided a safe haven. Instead of gratitude, the Jews feared and wanted to go multi-culti. But how many Latinx care or have heard about the Holocaust, and how many Chinese care, and how many Muslims should we let in?

Germans, Do you really want this to happen again in your land? Earlier German generations murdered a productive, cohesive, hard-working people, not only those from Germany, but from all the lands which those earlier Germans overran.

And now today you Germans are doing it all over again. You’ve been importing, for decades, those will kill, yes, kill, the Jews who, despite the odds against them, have managed to increase their European numbers. Only to face Muslims as the Nazi replacements.

The Muslims’ Qur’an is much more developed and clear on how the Jews is to be treated than Mein Kampf ever was, resulting in 1400 years of Jew hatred and murder. Jews are for certain on the top of Islam’s Kill List, but any non-Muslim is on that list as well.

Germany, with the way things are going, we might begin to get the idea that all of this is intentional. On your part.

Also, notice the contemptible fig leaf excuse/rationalization/whitewashing conjured up by the German government, to explain the roots of Muslim Jew-hatred — it’s allegedly rooted in the Muslims’ own sense of victimhood. As if Islamic Jew-hatred isn’t a core part of the central text of the ideology of “Submission,” and, as if Muslims haven’t been acting on that hatred, for 1,400 years, since the ideology’s founding.

At this point, given that there are copious amounts of scholarship and a lengthy historical record available with which to analyze Islam’s intrinsic and innumerable pathologies (to say nothing of the ceaseless real-world belligerence and violence wrought by Muslims, worldwide), one can only conclude that the German government’s attitude is the product of a totally delusional form of denial, rather than mere ignorance.

These are the same governments that tell their own women that it’s their own damned fault if they get raped walking past a “refugee” encampment.

That they also need to die their blond hair black.

But that none of this has to do with the culture they are importing. And it is racist of me to suggest otherwise.

Don’t listen to this guy, he’s a racist. RACIST!!!

Funny how I visited Europe several times and managed to keep my hands to myself. I don’t even recall sniffing a woman’s hair without permission. I might have done it with implied permission.

“The Tango – Scent of a Woman (4/8) Movie CLIP (1992) HD”

But never in a weird “I have a puppy in my van down by the river wanna look at it” kind of way. Kill me. I like dancing with women. But not once have I attempted to rape a girl or a boy in a public swimming pool.

The thought just never occurred to me.

Imi Lichtenfeld solved all our problems. Christians, learn Krav Maga.

It may sound incongruous that you can learn something as lethal as Krav Maga at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center in La Jolla. A suburb of San Diego. But you can. My advantage here was the instructor took an active dislike to me.

Consider. One of the main obstacles confronting me when I attempted to learn the Asian systems was that my instructors liked me. I know two, exactly two, Judo throws. I can do them textbook.

My sensei who taught me those when I was stationed in Japan saw me do them, textbook, from the jump and decided his goal in life was to drink nihonshu (sake) with me. This might have been a problem but apparently I’m so charming almost nobody wants to get into a fight with me.

That and at 57 I’m still pretty brawny.

Thank God I found the Lawrence Family JCC.

Where nobody likes me. And I could actually learn something.

Just more proof that no government anywhere, can protect you…

“I, Top Gun, in lieu of going to prison, swear to sign away four years of my life to the United States Navy because I want to hang out with Marines without actually having to BE one of them, because I thought the Air Force was too “corporate,” and because I thought, “Hey, I like to swim…Why not?” …”

Fortunately at 57 I almost never date a woman whose is ex is getting out of prison for aggravated assault.


Back to the weight pile.

Next, they’ll take the yellow stars out of storage.

    I tried to comment that when they, “they,” bring the yellow stars out of storage the only ones covering themselves with dishonor will be the ones who let them do it.

Yad vashem rightly notes that it simply wasn’t possible for U.S. forces too meet the Nazis for most of the war.

Around 90 percent of the crimes were committed by right-wing radicals, he said.

And he knows this how?

The Norwegians had a better solution.

Time for all good Germans to adopt the Kippah for national headdress.

Issue Glock 17s to all Jews. Simple.

@ Ray: nope. Issue Lugers. Delicious irony and all that.

    I read an eye witness account of German with a Schmeiser dueling with an American GI with an M3 Grease gun.

    The German put his entire magazine into the GI. He did everything his weapon allowed. Then he had to stand there with an empty weapon while the GI wasted him.

    The GI later died of his wounds But the German didn’t know that.

Mr. Griz, 9mms are inefficient. Which is why I prefer the Colt .45.
