Berlin (AFP) - Germany recorded nearly 1,000 far-right offences targeting refugee shelters last year, a five-fold annual rise amid a record influx of asylum seekers, the government said Monday.
Presenting the figures, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said he did not expect a lull in 2016.
Some 923 offences against refugees and refugee facilities were recorded in 2015, against 175 the previous year, according Interior Ministry statistics on political crime in Germany.
These included 177 acts of violence -- including three attempted killings -- and hundreds of non-violent acts such as painting graffiti, the use of Nazi symbols and incitements to hatred.
"The refugee topic was of course the focus of politically motivated crime" last year, when Germany took in over one million asylum seekers, the minister told a Berlin press conference. "A decline in the number of political crimes is not to be expected in 2016 unfortunately," he said, adding that in this year's first quarter there had been 347 crimes against refugee centres.
De Maiziere said that in 90 percent of far-right crimes the perpetrators were men, that three quarters were aged 18 to 30, and that most lived close to the crime scene and nearly half were previously unknown to police.
Far-left offences increased by 18 percent in 2015 to 9,600, including 2,246 acts of violence -- an increase of nearly 35 percent -- mostly targeting right-wing political opponents or police.
Migrants committed 208,344 crimes in 2015, according to a confidential police report that was leaked to the German newspaper, Bild. This figure represents an 80% increase over 2014 and works out to around 570 crimes committed by migrants every day, or 23 crimes each hour, between January and December 2015.
The actual number of migrant crimes is far higher, however, because the report, produced by the Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA), includes only crimes that have been solved (aufgeklärten Straftaten).
According to Statista, the German statistics agency, on average only around half of all crimes committed in Germany in any given year are solved (Aufklärungsquote). This implies that the actual number of crimes committed by migrants in 2015 may exceed 400,000.

What would they do if millions of christians and atheist and even some gays came to their country, did not speak the language, did western culture things(public PDA, women dressed scantily, free speech, practicing secular law) and started going on the dole?
This already happened and it's called colonialism. Nowadays we have neocolonialism which is about planting puppet leaders for economic gain, which is also about military intervention if need be.

I prefer the Russian idea of restoring order then having elections and letting the people decide not Cheney,Rothschild,Murdoch and Genie oil and gas.
Germany’s Merkel insists that Europeans have to take in Muslim migrants playing refugee for the sake of European values. Here’s what these European values look like.
Christian refugees are already being terrorized by the Muslim migrants in Germany.
Mainly Syrian refugees, mostly devout Sunni Muslims, live in the home. “They wake me before dawn during Ramadan and say that I should eat before the sun comes up. If I refuse, they say, I’m a, kuffar ‘, an unbeliever. They spit at me,” says Said. “They treat me like an animal. And threaten to kill me.”
Especially dramatic is the case of a Christian family from Iraq, which was housed in a refugee camp in the Bavarian Freising. The father told a TV crew of the Bayerischer Rundfunk of beatings and threats by Syrian Islamists. “They yelled at my wife and beat my child. They say.. “We will kill you and drink your blood” The family lived in the rooms of the home as prisoners – until they no longer stand it and returned to Iraq.” The news isn’t any better for the gays.

What would you do, what would we do ? Imagine a situation where your city is destroyed, your house is just rubble. Your family may or may not have been killed in the fighting. The only way for you to survive is to either join up to hundreds of militant factions which offer you money but are extremist giving you a chance to feed your family or escape to another country which is stable. Imagine going to a country who is responsible for funding terrorists in your country and being discriminated against in that country ?
