Right-Wing Violence in Germany: Migrant Organisations Alarmed

12./ 13.11.2011

Following the most recent findings in a series of right-wing violence in Germany, various migrant organisations are alarmed and call for protests. The chair of the central council of Muslims in Germany, Aiman Mazyek, described the killings of a female police officer in Heilbronn and nine shop owner with migrant backgrounds as a form of terrorism – more specifically, he said it was a classic form of “home-grown terrorism”. He warned not to take Islamophobic and xenophobic tendencies lightly. Similarly, Kenan Kolat, head of the Turkish Community in Germany, said it was a form of right-terror, which had to be stopped. He called on all Germans to participate in protests against right-wing terrorism.
