New law under consideration to deny antisemites citizenship in Germany

Under a new law now under discussion in the German parliament, antisemites would not be granted citizenship in Germany.

German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said that a draft for a new law that would deny antisemites German citizenship is now being discussed in the Bundestag, reports The Jerusalem Post.

According to the new law, people who have committed antisemitic acts can never be granted citizenship. „Our draft for the new citizenship law, which we will now discuss in the Bundestag, provides a clear exclusion of antisemites who cannot be granted German citizenship under the new law,” Faeser said in a statement.

She added that German authorities were „extremely vigilant” regarding supporters of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas in Germany, adding that any pro-Hamas person would be „prosecuted with the full force of the law.”
