Merkel leads Berlin rally against anti-Semitism


BERLIN (AP) – Chancellor Angela Merkel led a rally against anti-Semitism in Berlin on Sunday, telling several thousand people that Jewish life is part of Germany’s identity and she wants to ensure that Jews feel safe here.

Germany’s Jewish community organized the rally at the capital’s Brandenburg Gate after tensions over the Gaza conflict spilled over into demonstrations in Europe that saw anti-Jewish slogans and violence.

President Joachim Gauck joined ministers and Germany’s top Protestant and Catholic clerics at the event along with Muslim community leaders.


I applaud the efforts of Angela Merkel and her compatriots, together with religious and community leaders, to fight antisemitism, which appears to be on the rise throughout Europe.




The Third Reich rolls in it’s grave, and God Bless Chancellor Merkel for this.


Neo-Nazis allegedly just posted graffitti at a newspaper office in Eastern Germany:


We must bring an end to anti-Semitism.
