The turmoil in Kosovo eased Friday as NATO, determined to prevent nationalist strife from again destabilizing the Balkans, deployed more troops into villages jolted by gunfire and streaked with smoke rising from Serbian homes set ablaze by ethnic Albanian mobs. With its credibility in jeopardy after three days of violence, the alliance became more aggressive in quelling uprisings, especially in the ethnically divided city of Kosovska Mitrovica.

Neo-Nazi skinheads went on a rampage over the weekend, attacking foreigners or their homes in six German towns, police said Sunday. At least five people were hurt and 10 arrested. All but one of the attacks occurred in small eastern German towns near Berlin either late Saturday or early Sunday, police said. The other attack took place in the western German city of Nuremberg on Saturday night.

Lessons in tolerance are needed to quell the rightist violence gripping Germany, an official said Friday during a ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the 1972 massacre at the Munich Olympics. The 11 Israelis killed by Arab terrorists were remembered by their relatives, representatives of the Israeli Embassy and German officials. During the commemoration, Munich's Deputy Mayor Christian Ude said vigilance is still necessary to "resist anti-Semitism and hate of foreigners."

While police used riot gear to fight one of the worst weekends of rightist violence in Germany to date, the nation's leaders searched their own arsenal Sunday for weapons to halt the wave of hate. In more than 20 cities, neo-Nazi youths tossed firebombs at refugee homes, smashed windows, burned cars and fought street battles with increasingly larger, more aggressive contingents of riot police. At least 42 people were arrested.

The question raised in your editorial of Dec. 8 "German Justice: How Balanced?" suggests deliberate judicial laxness in Germany with regard to right-wing violence. This merits clarification. First, a few facts: In 1992 alone, the year of the worst xenophobic violence in Germany in which eight foreigners were killed, 1,500 assailants, mostly disgruntled youths, were sentenced for hate crimes in German courts. The first murder trial against two skinheads in May, 1993, ended in one defendant receiving a life sentence--the most severe punishment under German law--and the other receiving nine years imprisonment.

German prosecutors launched a criminal investigation Wednesday of a far-right politician who suggested in the wake of last week's synagogue firebombing that certain Jews are themselves to blame for a rise in anti-Jewish sentiment here. Franz Schoenhuber--a 71-year-old former volunteer in the personal guard of Adolf Hitler in the Waffen-SS and now leader of the rightist Republikaner party--singled out one German Jewish leader as "one of those most responsible for provoking anti-Semitism."

Three more youths with purported neo-Nazi ties were arraigned Friday in connection with a May 29 firebombing that killed five Turkish women and children in Germany's worst racist attack since an epidemic of right-wing violence erupted two years ago. Hundreds of thousands of Germans are expected to take to the streets today for nationwide protests against racism. Up to 50,000 demonstrators are expected in Solingen, site of the deadly arson attack.

Police raided dozens of homes of right-wing extremists across Germany and found explosives, weapons and neo-Nazi propaganda, officials said Saturday. Tens of thousands demonstrated peacefully in more than 20 German cities to protest violence against foreigners, though trouble erupted during a march in the northern town of Moelln, where three Turks died when their home was firebombed Monday.

The cars parked outside the Phoenix Club in Anaheim one recent evening were the first sign of the true feelings of Orange County's German-American association and its 6,000-plus members. Naturally, there was a fleet of stoic Mercedes-Benzes and BMWs. But there were just as many--if not more--American-made Cadillacs.
