- European Jews face rising tide of anti-Semitism in Gaza operation's wake
- The Germans may no longer be the gift that keeps on giving

- Berlin gears up for mass 'No more Jew-hatred' rally
Merkel said Saturday she will do everything possible to make sure anti-Semitism has no chance in Germany.
Her remarks came after recent protests in Germany against the Gaza war turned anti-Semitic, with synagogues and Jews being attacked and demonstrators chanting for Jews to be gassed.
Merkel said making Jews feel safe remains a top priority for Germany 75 years after it attacked Poland in the run-up to World War II and the killing of six million Jews. She expressed worries that Jewish institutions need police protection.
Merkel said "we need to resolutely pursue every sign of anti-Semitism."
