Germany: Jewish institutions in Berlin mostly targeted with hate mail

Via RBB:

There were 25 attacks on religious institutions in Berlin in 2015 - 17 against churches, five against Jewish institutions and three against mosques.  No suspects were arrested.

In 2014 there were 21 attacks (Christians: 13, Jewish: 5, Muslim: 3) and in 2013 there were 13 attacks (Christian: 3, Jewish: 2, Muslim: 8).

Jewish institutions (which includes a Jewish grocery store) were mostly targeted with antisemitic emails and letters.  In one case a synagogue security fence and sign were vandalized.

There are approximately 50,000 Jews in Berlin and 200,000 Muslims, out of a total population of 3.5 million.
