Islamophobic and Antisemitism have become trending topics in Germany nowadays. The rise of Muslims population in Germany during migration crisis that cause pro and contra in society can be the main cause of the Islamophobic in the country lead by Angela Merkel. On the other side, there is another phenomenon called anti-Semitism that has historically occurred since Nazi’s era. Currently, this phenomenon suddenly rises up during migration crisis and it has been strongly discussed after the controversy created by duo rappers Kollegah (Felix Blume) and Farid Bang (Farid El Abdellaoui) who took home the prize for their anti-semitism songs in album Jung, Brutal, Gutaussehend 3. Pros and cons appear and they become trending topic in German online newspaper along with the islamophobia that’s still debatable. Even though these two phenomena have one similiarity, namely ‘anxiety feeling or extreme fear of something’, there are different strategies used by the Press in Germany. Crictical analysis is needed to reveal specific strategies applied and the impact of the kind of strategies on the representation of Muslims and Jews in Germany. Based on critical discourse studies, it can be concluded that the German online newspaper defines Islam as outer group who creates islamophobic. But, Jews are represented differently as a victim of anti-Semitism.
