BERLIN - Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday said her conservative party unanimously condemned antisemitic acts such as burning of Israeli flags and said the government should use all instruments at its disposal to combat such incidents.

"We condemn all kinds of antisemitism and xenophobia, and no disagreements, not even over the status of Jerusalem, justify such actions," Merkel told journalists after a meeting of the leadership of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

Police reported the burning of Israeli flags and use of antisemitic slogans at protest rallies in Berlin and other cities over the weekend after US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
