Far-right extremists blamed for surge in anti-Semitic crimes in Germany

MUNICH — Right-wing extremists were to blame for a large rise in anti-Semitic crimes in Germany last year, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said Wednesday following the release of the country’s annual crime report.

Jewish groups and politicians condemned the increase, which recorded 2,032 reports of anti-Semitic crimes in 2019 — up by 13 percent from 1,799 in 2018.

“The biggest threat is still the threat from the right,” Seehofer said, adding that crimes by right-wing extremists accounted for more than half of all politically motivated crimes.

Right-wing extremists were responsible for more than 90 percent of the anti-Semitic crimes and a similar percentage of anti-Islamic crimes, he added.
