Germany to Fund Anti­Semitic Education for Muslim Children

Anti-Semitic Education

Muslim youth in Germany will probably get the chance to learn anti­semitic teachings, as the Germans get ready to fund this education according to the country’s Jewish outreach officials.

Germany’s special representative for relations with Jewish organizations, Felix Klein, travelled to Washington this week to meet with Jewish groups in addition to Obama administration officials over American concerns about a spike in anti­Semitism in Germany during and after the recent Israel­Hamas conflict in Gaza Strip.

Klein revealed that the 100,000 Jews living in Germany had a “feeling of unease” after the anti­semitic actions in the country.

Chancellor Angela Merkel recently led a rally against anti­semitic actions in Berlin, insisting the Jews are part of life in Germany and should always feel safe.

Jewish leader Dieter Graumann said that the summer saw the worst anti­Semitic slogans on German streets for many decades.

“We won’t let ourselves be intimidated, but we would have liked a bit more empathy in the last few weeks. Many of us still come from Holocaust families. How do you think we feel when we hear on German streets today, ‘Jews to the gas?’” he added.
