Syrian beaten with iron chain in racist attack in north German city
2018-08-31
[IsraelTimes] Amid far-right demonstrations, 20-year-old migrant encounters violence, xenophobic comments in Wismar

A Syrian migrant was subjected to xenophobic insults and beaten up in the northern German city of Wismar Wednesday evening, police said, in an attack that comes as the country is shaken by far-right demonstrations against foreigners.

The 20-year-old man was walking home when "he was stopped by three German-speaking people who insulted him in a xenophobic manner," police said.

Two of them then hit him in the face before the third "hit him on the shoulder and ribs with an iron chain."

The victim fell to the ground and was beaten before his attackers fled. He suffered a broken nose and bruises to his face and upper body, said police who have opened an investigation.

The attack in the Baltic coastal city comes as Germany is reeling from weekend protests by right-wing holy warriors in the eastern state of Saxony, long a hotspot for xenophobia.

After the fatal stabbing of a German man, 35, allegedly by a Syrian and an Iraqi, thousands of far-right protesters marched in the city of Chemnitz for two straight days, some chasing down people they believed were immigrants colonists.

Police reported assaults by holy warriors against at least three foreigners on Sunday, while investigations were opened in 10 cases of the protesters performing the illegal Hitler salute.

The ugly scenes of mostly white men, many of them bad boy soccer hooligans, hurling abuse at people they deemed to be foreigners, have deeply alarmed Germany.

Saxony state police say they will be backed by reinforcements from five other states and federal police, after being heavily outnumbered by thousands of neo-Nazis, football hooligans and other turbans in unrest on Sunday and Monday.

The flashpoint city of Chemnitz has seen a violent outbreak of long-simmering anger against what protesters label "criminal immigrants colonists" since Sunday’s knife killing.

#4  Saxony, long a hotspot for xenophobia.

It is true that there is a specifically East German neo-Nazi subculture; this isn't limited to Saxony.

It would be a grave error to assume that the other parts of East Germany are less 'xenophobic.'

Saxony is vilified because of its role in the downfall of communism, and for no other reason.

thousands of far-right protesters marched in the city of Chemnitz for two straight days, some chasing down people they believed were immigrants.

There were demonstrations and leftist counter-demonstrations and there were some altercations.

This was not a 48 hour occupation of the city by demonstrators.

When Afghans demonstrated against Germans' right to self defense in April they chased down a passer-by on at least one occasion, yelling Allahu-Akbar.

Neither the mainstream media nor mainstream politics too notice.

The link is to a blog article in German. Here's a link to a radio interview with the club's owner (in German).

This is just a manifestation of the new normal in Germany.

If you read German have a look at "www.politikversagen.net" or "Einzelfallinfos" on Twitter.

These are compilations of news reports concerning crime and violence committed by migrants.

The selection of stories is openly biased but all reports are sourced by links to official police reports or articles in local mainstream papers.

The bias is legitimate as it aims to provide a counterweight to the mainstream media's bias to the opposite direction.

The story about the Wismar incident is a "dog bites dog" irrelevancy.
