    All Germans Urged To Wear Kippah In Protest Against Antisemitism

    Germans of all faiths and none are being urged to wear kippah skullcaps on Saturday as a symbol of solidarity with the Jewish community, after a steep rise in antisemitic attacks.

    Protests across the country have been called by the government’s antisemitism ombudsman after he triggered a heated debate when he warned Jews last week not to wear the kippah because of the increasing likelihood of being attacked.

    The German tabloid newspaper Bild has been one of the most vocal supporters of the protests, even publishing a cut-out kippah for readers to download and print.

    Felix Klein, who was appointed as antisemitism ombudsman a year ago, told German media last week: “I cannot recommend that Jews wear the kippah whenever and wherever they want in Germany, and I say this with regret.”

    He cited a 20% rise in attacks on Jewish citizens since 2018. Last year, 1,800 antisemitic attacks were reported, involving verbal and physical abuse and death threats. The real figure is thought to be much higher.

    In April, the rabbi for Cologne’s 4,000-strong Jewish community, Yechiel Brukner, said he would no longer travel on public transport because of the abuse he had received, including a death threat.

    In the run-up to the European parliamentary elections earlier this month, campaigners for the far-right Die Rechte party drove past a synagogue in the city of Pforzheim shouting “Leave Germany” and “Go back to Israel” from the open windows of their bus, which displayed a prominent picture of a convicted Holocaust denier.

    Klein said his warning came amid “mounting disinhibition and spreading of views which poses a fatal breeding ground for antisemitism”. According to the ombudsman, 90% of the threats to Jews in Germany come from far-right extremists, while most of the remaining 10% come from long-term Muslim residents. “Many of them watch Arabic television channels, in which a fatal picture of Israel and of Jews is conveyed,” Klein said.

    He has called for extra support to educate the police, judges and other state officials who he said were insufficiently informed about the problem or how to deal with it.

    Klein’s recommendation not to wear the kippah was met with a mixture of defiance and shock.

    Joachim Herrmann, the Bavaria interior minister, said the warning was the equivalent of giving in to the far right. He urged Jews to ignore Klein’s warning and to continue wearing the kippah. “If we cave in to hatred towards Jews, we are doing nothing other than handing the playing field to rightwing ideology,” he said.

    The prominent German Jewish publisher Michel Friedman said Klein’s warning amounted to an “admission of failure by the state”, in contravention of article four of Germany’s constitution, which guarantees the right to religious freedom. “Obviously the state is failing to enable this for all Jewish citizens in their normal lives,” he said.

    Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, expressed his disquiet during a visit to Berlin on Friday. “We were concerned to see Jews discouraged from wearing the yarmulke [another name for the kippah] in public out of safety concerns. None of us should shrink in the face of prejudice,” he said at a press conference.

    Klein said while announcing Saturday’s protests that his earlier warning was meant as a “wake-up call” and that the coming together of politics and society would offer “a real chance to win the battle against antisemitism”.

    The kippah protest has been called to coincide with al-Quds Day, when protesters gather to remember the occupation of East Jerusalem by Israel during the six-day war in 1967. Al-Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem. The demonstration is typically a magnet in central Berlin for anti-Israel demonstrators, and attracts Hezbollah and Hamas sympathisers as well as neo-Nazis sporting antisemitic slogans and symbols.

    The demonstration – dubbed Deutschland trägt Kippa (Germany wears the kippah) – has been welcomed by Josef Schuster, the president of the Central Council of Jews, who said it was a sign of solidarity and “helpful but insufficient”.

    “Antisemitism must be tackled on many different levels,” he said. He urged children and young people to be cautious, calling on them to “preferably wear a cap over your kippah” in towns and cities with a particular reputation for antisemitic attacks, as he had done for years.

    The demonstration was hopefully an indication “that the state is finally treating antisemitism with the seriousness that it deserves”, he said.

    Earlier this week Angela Merkel said in an interview that antisemitism continued to be a problem in Germany more than seven decades after the end of the Holocaust, in which 6 million Jews were murdered by the Nazi regime.

    “We have always had a certain amount of antisemites among us,” the chancellor said in an interview with CNN. “Unfortunately there is to this day not a single synagogue, not a single daycare centre for Jewish children, not a single school for Jewish children that does not need to be guarded by German policemen.”

    The government spokesman Steffen Seibert said state institutions had a duty to ensure “that every person can be safe everywhere in this country”.

    In an editorial Bild said the fact that Jewish people were having to hide their religion in order to feel safe seven decades after the Holocaust meant “we are failing before our own history”.

    Never mind that the rise of "anti-semitic" attacks is due to immigration, of which the Jews are the most outspoken promoters. The ghosts you call...

    I'm so sick of this constant mimimi from the whinerfolk, I wished there was as much anti-semitism as they want to make it look by listing all socalled "attacks" under politically motivated crime:right-wing, regardless of whether it was an immigrant or just someone who shouted asshole into the face of someone who happened to be a jew.

    This is another self-flaggelation show-off for everyone taking part in this disgusting submission ritual. But just keep pushing. Every time of such publicity stunts a few more people are waking up.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Its another jewish humiliation ritual. We all have to deal with them. Like having to see brown people on our TV every time we turn it on.

    If a person is a National Socialist, a card-carrying party member waving a swastika flag and all that, but instead of Jews he opposes Extraterrestrial Invaders, is he still an anti-Semite?
    When someone asks, "What would Jesus do?" remind them that flipping tables and chasing people with a whip is entirely possible.

    Kippahs would be excellent poop scoops and someone should make disposable ones available to dog owners, sold in packs of 20.

    This would be a great business idea and if anyone objects to them being placed on top of turds, just tell them that this is what they are already being used for

    Waving swastika flags is illegal and comes with up to 5 years in prison in communist Germany.

    But let's assume for a moment there were anti-alien nazies, of course they still were also anti-semitic. Jews love to hide between everything foreign, so they appear less foreign. Being against whatever foreign so automatically is also anti-semitic. Protest against criminal banksters and their schemes, scams and globalism and it wont take long before someone shouts "anti-semitism", because like 99% of those criminals happen to be Jews, even though no one in the protest mentioned that detail or paid any attention to it. This is how the Occupy movement became a "racist, anti-semitic, white supremacy movement", even though it was leftist. Protest immigration and the islamisation of Europe and be labeled anti-semitic. Essentially, everything is "anti-semitic" that realises a "difference" between one group and another. And from being against space aliens to wanting to gas 6mio Jews really is just a tiny step, after all.

    They say I should wear a kippa and I wear my Mjölnir and Yggdrasil more proudly than ever before.
    Loyal to my hate

    Reminds me of my childhood when the "French beret" was outlawed, it was a sign of rebellion against Nazi Germany.
