Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is often the case in America as well.  The boys of Middle East descent were required to register with the govt after 9-11, terrorists or not, while skin heads continue to roam free.  Look at our response to the Oklahoma City bombing compared to that of 9-11...  MvVeigh may not have been a traditional Nazi, but he was extreme right wing militant.  A military man too...

My gov't. isn't overly concerned with stopping these people because they are a certain voting base and some people in our gov't even have a history of supporting these organizations...  Scary stuff.

I thought Germany would be a bit more vigilant than us, but who knows.  Usually easier to get support to go after people who represent the collective Other (who always present some percieved threat to traditional way of life whether economic or cultural)than the ostensibly entitled majority.  

Oh, and skin heads are not just after the Jews.  Anyone not white or Christian is on their list.

I don't know the details of the situation in Germany.
