The recent surge in anti semitism in Germany is on par with other western European countries such as Sweden, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Not trying to sound condescending but these countries haven’t had a massive wave of migration of skinheads in the last few years. Parts of eastern Germany, especially around Dresden has always had a presence of racism, however it’s not been as a big of an issue in other major cities of Germany.
I am not sure why the NYT’s is skirting around the issue they have wrote about it before in an article about Sweden.
"STOCKHOLM — This past Saturday, a Hanukkah party at a synagogue in Goteborg, Sweden, was abruptly interrupted by Molotov cocktails. They were hurled by a gang of men in masks at the Jews, mostly teenagers, who had gathered to celebrate the holiday.
Two days later, two fire bombs were discovered outside the Jewish burial chapel in the southern Swedish city of Malmo.
Who knows what tomorrow may bring?
For Sweden’s 18,000 Jews, sadly, none of this comes as a surprise. They are by now used to anti-Semitic threats and attacks — especially during periods of unrest in the Middle East, which provide cover to those whose actual goal has little to do with Israel and much to do with harming Jews.
Both of these recent attacks followed days of incitement against Jews. Last Friday, 200 people protested in Malmo against President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The protesters called for an intifada and promised “we will shoot the Jews.” A day later, during a demonstration in Stockholm, a speaker called Jews “apes and pigs.” There were promises of martyrdom."
