Some 300 Hamas members and supporters – as well as 950 Hezbollah activists and members – are operating in Germany, the country’s domestic intelligence agency said in its annual federal report, the same numbers as were listed in its 2013 and 2014 reports.
According to the Berlin State intelligence 2015 report, which was overseen by Henkel, there are 250 active Hezbollah members and 70 Hamas operatives in the capital. It is unclear why Berlin authorities have not detained the Hamas members.
International Quds Day – initiated by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Islamic Republic’s founder, in 1979 – is an annual event calling for the destruction the Jewish state.
“This demonstration [al-Quds Day] is directed at a state that represents the same values as Germany and the other countries of Europe,” said Yakov Hadas-Handelsman, Israel’s ambassador to Germany, at a counter-al- Quds Day demonstration on Saturday. “And therefore this demonstration today is not only directed at Israel. The demonstration is directed not only against Jews in the entire world. No, the demonstration is directed against the entire Western world and its values.”
The number of pro-Israel protesters ranged from 260 to 500. Hadas-Handelsman said it is a “disgrace” that for the last 20 years in Germany, agitating publicly against Jews and Israel is allowed.
