Five asylum homes in Saxony were the target of attacks the previous weekend. 
..."I am really very concerned. We are heading to a situation in which instigators who are ready for violence deliberately use the fears of people to stir up hysteria against the asylum policy and justify violence against refugees," said Leipzig's police chief and director of the OAZ, Bernd Merbitz in an interview with the Leipziger Volkszeitung. Throughout the region, according to Merbitz, "there is a pogrom mood, which is acquiring an extremely dangerous intensity."


  1. If a country's leader imports war, you can hardly blame the citizenry for taking up arms against those who wage it.

  2. Also, the 'pogroms' were primarily economic and political protests which sometimes descended into violence (committed by both Jews and Europeans) and were usually a reaction to either jewish usury, tax farming, or economic monopolies by jews on the European side, and Jewish communistic political machinations (including assassinations) on the other side.
