The German domestic intelligence agency has warned of a sharp rise in violence from right- and left-wing groups. A report also found growing numbers of Islamist extremists returning from terror training camps in Syria.

Salafist Demonstration in Germany in 2012 Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere warned of an increase in violence linked to political and religious extremists in Germany. Presenting the annual domestic intelligence agency report on Wednesday in Berlin, de Maiziere said that though the numbers of right- and left-wing extremists in Germany had not grown, there was a notable increase in the brutality of actions by such groups. De Maiziere spoke of a deplorable trend toward physical violence on both sides of the political spectrum. Right-wing extremists mostly target foreigners in Germany. However, they now opt for physical aggression more often than in the past, when they often resorted to verbal attacks.

I’m shocked Germany allows Salafists to thrive. They have the means to shut that down overnight if they wanted to.
