German Chancellor Angela Merkel has denounced a "different type of anti-Semitism" that has taken root in her country, the Euro News website reports today (April 23, 2018).
She also vowed to do everything possible to ensure the safety of Jews in Germany.
"We have refugees now, for example, or people of Arab origin, who bring a different type of anti-Semitism into the country," Merkel said. (Germany has accepted more than a million Arab refugees -- and many of them have been arrested for committing violent acts -- during the past three years.)
Merkel said her government has appointed a new commissioner to fight anti-Semitism and to support Jewish life in Germany. She added, "The fact that no kindergarten, no school, no synagogue can be left without police protection dismays us."
