Israeli Tourists
Attacked By Skinheads

Bonn (JTA) — For the first
time since the beginning of
the current wave of violence
by neo-Nazis in Germany,
two Israeli tourists have
been attacked by neo-Nazi
skinheads.
The two Israelis, who
became engaged in a scuffle
with the skinheads who
taunted them, were
promptly released by police
after the fracas, which took
place in a supermarket.
The skinheads, both of
whom have criminal records
and are known to be assoc-
iated with extremist groups,
were detained in custody for
24 hours. They face charges
of insulting and attacking
foreigners, a police spokes-
man in Potsdam said.
The incident was the first
physical assault by neo-
Nazis on Israelis or

specifically on Jews. But it
sent shock waves through
the German Jewish com-
munity and among Jews
abroad.
Although Jews in Ger-
many have been spared such
attacks until now, dozens of
instances of Jewish
cemetery desecrations have
been recorded this year in
the south German state of
Baden- Wurtemberg alone.
Few of the vandals have
been caught and none has
been brought to trial. Local
politicians tend to shrug off
the incidents as youthful
mischief.
But right-wing thugs have
attacked foreigners with im-
punity this year, to the pro-
found embarrassment of the
Bonn government. Their
targets mainly have been
guest laborers or asylum-
seeking refugees from Asia,
Africa and Eastern Europe.
The two young Israelis
were shopping at a market
called Kaufhalle Spar when
the skinheads, recognizing
foreigners in their midst,
shouted at them, "Pigs, get
out of Germany."
The Israelis shouted
back,"Again the Nazis," and
a violent clash erupted with
shopping carts.

He was a visionary leader, founder
and former president of our school.

The only injured party was
an innocent bystander, a 5-
year- old boy, who was
slightly injured by one of the
carts.
Witnesses said it was
unclear whether the neo-
Nazis knew the tourists
were Israelis or attacked
them simply because they
were speaking a foreign
language.
The police, who took the
attackers and attacked alike
into custody, released the
Israelis with profuse
apologies when they iden-
tified themselves.
On the same day, police in
Emmendingen, southern
Germany, arrested eight
members of the neo-Nazi
National Front. Most are
between 16 and 17 years old.
They are accused of se-
verely damaging a refugee
hostel in the village of
Kaiserstuhl and daubing the
walls with swastikas.
The new parliamentary
chairman of the combined
parliamentary group of
Christian Democratic Union
and Christian Social Union
deputies in the Bundestag
has proposed that asylum-
seekers who enter Germany
from what are deemed "safe
countries" should in the
future be deported or not
permitted to enter Germany
at all.
Wolfgang Schaeuble told
the daily Stuttgarter Zeitung
last week that Germany's
governing coalition has
agreed that an asylum
-seeker who enters from
France, for example, could
be refused permission to
enter Germany and returned
to France.
Mr. Schaeuble invited the
opposition Social Democrats
to discuss the matter fur-
ther.
He told a television inter-
viewer that a real solution to
the matter of asylum-
seekers could only be
brought about by a change
in the Constitution and ex-
pediting of the asylum pro-
cedure. Funds saved by
Germany's accepting fewer
asylum-seekers, he said,
could then be applied to bet-
tering conditions in the
countries which the asylum-
seekers are fleeing.
