Inciting hatred Beatrix von Storch deputy leader of Alternative for Germany, responded to a tweet by Cologne police in which they wished a Happy New Year in Arabic

A far-right German MP is under police investigation over inflammatory anti-Muslim comments she made on social media on New Year's Eve.

A prominent lawmaker with the nationalist and anti-Islam Alternative for Germany party has run into trouble with police and Twitter over her response to a Cologne police tweet offering New Year greetings in Arabic.

"What the hell is happening in this country?" "Did you mean to appease the barbaric, Muslim, gang-raping hordes of men?"

Von Storch's post earned her a temporary suspension from Twitter and Facebook as both companies now must remove hate speech from their sites in Germany within 24 hours of receiving a notification.


In an interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday, Ms. Von Storch recalled that more than a thousand women and girls were "victims of sexual violence and harassment by Muslim asylum-seekers and so-called refugees" during Cologne's notorious New Year's Eve celebrations in 2015.

In June, in a question on Facebook of whether firearms should be used against women and children trying to cross the German border, Von Storch answered "yes".

Overseeing such cities as Cologne and Leverkusen, North Rhine-Westphalia police had posted a celebratory message in several languages, such as English, French and Arabic, on December 31, The Guardian reports. Officials gave social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube until the end of 2017 to prepare themselves for the implementation of the law, and Ms. Von Storch was among its first victims. "Why does an official police site tweet in Arabic", she wrote.

While criticizing the action taken against her colleague, Weidel stated, "Our authorities submit to imported, marauding, groping, beating, knife-stabbing migrant mobs".


Having started off her career as a banker, von Storch went on to become a lawyer before entering politics.

A well-known far-right minister in Germany is under fire after sending a tweet that police say flouted laws against "incitement to hate".

AfD party chief Alexander Gauland took aim at the new rules, calling it "censorship" and saying the new regulations are "Stasi methods that remind me of communist East Germany".
