The new anti-Semitism commissioned by federal government, Felix Klein, calls for a stricter approach against politically motivated violence. "We should consider punishing bodily harm, which was perpetrated out of motive of political hatred, sharper than usual," said Klein of world on Sunday. It is also necessary to take steps against anti-Semitic bullying in schools. This should "no longer be hushed up".
The government Commissioner demanded that defence of anti-Semitism and racism be subject of teacher training. "That should even be subject to examination," Klein added. Anti-Semitic crimes by Muslims have not increased since refugee crisis, he stressed. Neverless, it is also necessary to take appropriate stances in se circles.
Klein announced talks with Turkish Government on sending principle of imams. "We must take care of this and, if necessary, also check that all imams working in Germany are set for international understanding and anti-Semitism." Attacks and bullying at schools have led to worries among Germany's Jews over past few months.
