Anti-Semitism on the Rise in Germany?

Far-Right Attacks Reached New Record in Germany in 2007:

A record number of far-right attacks were perpetrated in Germany last year, according to a former government spokesman turned campaigner. Uwe-Karsten Heye, the founder of pressure group Gesicht Zeigen! (Show your Faces), said about 600 people were attacked by neo-Nazis last year.

Speaking in Berlin Monday, Heye warned about a rise in right-wing extremism, particularly in eastern Germany. According to Heye, there were 11 attacks on businesses run by immigrants in the eastern state of Brandenburg in 2007. “Behind the attacks is a strategy by neo-Nazis to destroy livelihoods and drive out immigrants,” he said.
