German-American relations improved while governments in the Balkans remained allies with the U.S., but not without reevaluating their involvement in Iraq. The Russian Federation continued to develop a policy of authoritarian rule in opposition to Western democratization. Islamic extremism remained Germany's greatest domestic threat. Germany brokered a historic prisoner exchange between Israel and Hezballah. Israel reopened an embassy in Austria after a three-year withdrawal. Russian-Israeli relations remained positive. Germany reported 869 antisemitic incidents that occurred across the political spectrum. Russia also witnessed increased concern about hate crimes. The Jewish population in Germany and Austria increased slightly.
