Far-right crimes in Germany doubled in a year

 
Far-right crimes in Germany doubled in a year
A far-right mobilisation is ongoing in Germany, and with it comes crimes against asylum seekers and refugees.

From January to mid-September, German police registered 507 cases of xenophobic violence, writes the German magazine Der Spiegel.

It has doubled since last year.

Altogether there are registered 1,800 criminal offenses related to racist or right-wing extremist crimes aimed at asylum seekers and refugees. Among these, 78 cases of arson.

This happens while support for the right-wing populist party AfD also increases. The immigration and Islam-critical party was founded only three years ago but is now represented in ten of Germany's sixteen states.

Last weekend the party received 14 percent of the votes in Berlin, and in the latest poll for the whole of Germany the party is supported by 16 percent.

Der Spiegel also writes that German police believe no more than 20 people associated with these right-wing environments are dangerous, despite the increasing number of acts of violence.

In comparison, police monitor a list of 520 people associated with Islamist groups that they believe are dangerous.

The right-wing mobilization naturally comes as a response to something, and it will only grow bigger:
