Anti-Jewish feeling is “significantly”entrenched in German society, according to a report by experts appointed by the Bundestag.
They say the internet has played a key role in spreading Holocaust denial, far-right and extreme Islamist views, according to the DPA news agency.
They also speak of “a wider acceptance in mainstream society of day-to-day anti-Jewish tirades and actions”.
The expert group, set up in 2009, is to report regularly on anti-Semitism.
The findings of their report, due to be presented on Monday, were that anti-Jewish sentiment was “based on widespread prejudice, deeply-rooted cliches and also on plain ignorance of Jews and Judaism”.
They added that far-right slogans at football matches were a regular occurrence.

There is something good and something bad in this report.
It is bad that Jew-hate is deeply rooted in the German society. The Germans seems to have learned nothing from their defeat in World War II.
The good news is that the Government of Germany acknowledge that they have a problem.
Governments in nations like like Norway and Sweden live in a complete denial about the increase in Jew-hate in its population.
While Germany has a law banning Holocaust denial, the Neo-Nazi”s have an open stage in Oslo and Stockholm.
The Norwegian Government do even support Islamic terrorism against the Jewish state of Israel. Norway was the first country that legalized contacts with Hamas on the ministry level. Even though the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jonas Gahr Støre, first denied such contacts.
Yet having learned who Mordecai’s people were, he scorned the idea of killing only Mordecai. Instead Haman looked for a way to destroy all Mordecai’s people, the Jews, throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes.
Jew hate is as old as their election as God’s chosen people. Even in the Old Testament book of Esther, we find a regime that wants to massacre all their Jewish subjects.

Esther 9:13-14 Then said Esther, If it please the king, let it be granted to the Jews which are in Shushan to do tomorrow also according unto this day’s decree, and let Haman’s ten sons be hanged upon the gallows. And the king commanded it so to be done: and the decree was given at Shushan; and they hanged Haman’s ten sons.
There’s an interesting parallel to this story in the outcome of the Nuremburg Trials. There were twelve men sentenced to death for their part in the Holocaust. One of the men was tried and sentenced in absentia. His remanis were found years later and it was determined he had committed suicide in 1945. That left eleven; all of whom were present. But the night before he was to be executed, Goring committed suicide in his cell. The remaining ten men were executed….by hanging.
There were ten sons of Haman and ten “sons” of Hitler (at least in character). All hung on the gallows who plotted the total destruction of God’s chosen ones. It may be nothing…but I don’t believe in coincidence.
This is a great article. I linked to it. Thanks.
