In 1,377 of the anti-Semitic crimes in 2017, police identified right-wing extremists as the perpetrators. The final tally is expected to be even higher.

Gas Prices Edging Up
Triple A says the average price of a gallon of regular-grade gasoline has jumped seven cents nationally over the past three weeks. Hitting its highest level this year, gasoline demand registered at 9.1 million b/d, a 169,000 b/d increase year-over year.

The German daily Tagesspiegel, which reviewed the data, reported that 32 of the reported incidents were violent crimes and 160 involved damage to property. Authorities attributed 33 of the crimes to foreign-born anti-Semites, not including Islamists. However, the report found that out of all the anti-Semitic crimes past year, only 25 of them were "religiously motivated", and carried out mainly by German and foreign muslim extremists. Police were unable to divine a political motive in 17 of the cases, while one case of incitement was found to have a left-wing motive.

Bundestag vice-president Petra Pau of the Left party, who requested the report, said the figures were a concern, telling the Tagespiegel (link in German) that the number of cases could be considerably higher, as many of those affected were afraid to report anti-Semitic crimes.

In December, Jewish leader Charlotte Knobloch, the former head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany and the current president of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria, anti-Semitism has "grown on the right and the left, in the Muslim community and also in the heart of Germany society".
