German anti-Semitism 'deep-rooted' in society
Anti-Jewish feeling is "significantly" entrenched in German society, according to a report by experts appointed by the Bundestag (parliament).
They say the internet has played a key role in spreading Holocaust denial, far-right and extreme Islamist views, according to the DPA news agency.
They also speak of "a wider acceptance in mainstream society of day-to-day anti-Jewish tirades and actions".
The expert group, set up in 2009, is to report regularly on anti-Semitism.
The findings of their report, due to be presented on Monday, were that anti-Jewish sentiment was "based on widespread prejudice, deeply-rooted cliches and also on plain ignorance of Jews and Judaism"....
