Germany: "Jews should hide their Jewish identity"

Former president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany Charlotte Knobloch told the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper  Tuesday that the atmosphere in Germany has become increasingly threatening to Jews and that they should hide their Jewish identity. 
Knobloch, who also serves as head of the Munich Jewish community and Bavarian Jewish Organization, said she has received a flood of phone calls and e-mails filled with insults and hate speech. 
Regarding the the synagogue arson attack, Knobloch said,”it’s high time for all those in positions of responsibility to ask: What must we do to protect Jewish citizens?”
