‘Far Right Extremism’ in Germany

The usual hysteria:

Berlin (AFP) – German police have noted a significant rise in far-right extremism and attacks targeting foreigners, a news report said Sunday, amid national debate about a new Islamophobic movement.

The trend is seen as a backlash against a sharp increase in refugees arriving in Germany, Europe’s biggest economy and top destination for asylum-seekers and other migrants…

This part, however, is interesting:

A majority of Germans are at least open to some of the views voiced by PEGIDA and the right-wing AfD, according to a poll for news weekly Spiegel by the TNS institute.

Almost two-thirds of Germans think Merkel’s government is not paying enough attention to concerns about immigration and asylum-seekers, it found, and 34 percent believe Germany is undergoing a process of “Islamisation”.
