Germans say far-right MORE DANGEROUS than Islamists, but is Merkel’s shaky govt there to take on growing threat?

Germans say far-right MORE DANGEROUS than Islamists, but is Merkel’s shaky govt there to take on growing threat?

rt - 1 month ago

Far-right terrorism is more of a danger than Islamism in the eyes of nearly a half of Germans, while almost the same number blamed the AfD party for fueling extremism and authorities for sitting idly as the threat grows.

Days after the deadly shooting spree in Hanau, where a hate-motivated gunman killed ten people before taking his own life, Bild am Sonntag newspaper came up with an eye-catching survey, carried out by pollster, Kantar, revealing Germans’ attitudes toward extremism.

It found that 49 percent of Germans consider far-right extremists to be the greatest terrorist threat in the country, whereas only 27 percent of their compatriots said they feel the same danger from Islamist fundamentalists.

Many indications Hanau gunman was motivated by right-wing, racist views Merkel

Remarkably, 60 percent opined that the right-wing, anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) shares responsibility for attacks like the one in Hanau, despite the party leaders trying their best to publicly denounce the shooting spree and disavow themselves from the lone-wolf gunman. 

The aforementioned result fits well into the mainstream view as many voices on the left – including top brass from the Social Democrats, Greens and Die Linke – rushed to bash AfD, with demands heard for the party to be put on a watch list and its members to be surveilled by Germany’s domestic intelligence agency, the BfV. 

What is equally noteworthy is that 46 percent of those questioned believed that the German security agencies pay too little attention to the danger posed by the far-right. 

The agencies in question, be it the BfV or the interior ministry – led by Angela Merkel’s longtime ally Horst Seehofer – have been accused of long reflecting on the growing threat of right-wing terrorism and the spike in xenophobic attacks on German soil. 

And the relentless feedback from the public signals that people prefer action over words, however convincing they may be. 

One cannot say, however, that the ruling coalition – sent into a tailspin by the recent abdication of Merkel’s designated successor and the recent scandal in Thuringia, where her CDU party sided with AfD – is doing nothing. Seehofer himself announced last December that police and the BfV will get 300 new staff members each to “better counter” the increasing danger posed by right-wing extremists.
