German Jews upset about government group on anti-Semitism

Leading Jewish groups have slammed the German government for creating a new commission on anti-Semitism without including a single Jew. Julius Schoeps from the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies on Tuesday called it “a unique scandal” that the Interior

Ministry did not include any Jewish scientists or community leaders on the commission it created to fight anti-Semitism and support Jewish life in Germany. Anetta Kahane from the Amadeu Antonio Foundation against anti-Semitism says: “Nobody would even think of creating a conference on hatred of Islam without Muslims or a round table on the discrimination of women without women.” They announced the creation of an alternative commission that will stress the Jewish perspective.
