Antisemitism in Germany: A Quick Update

I wanted to update you on the situation in Germany, and  draw your attention to this video. I had previously touched upon Germany in this article, entitled,  “MUSLIM BAN: A JEWISH OUTLOOK” dated 2/13/2017. Discussing the settlement of Muslims in Europe, I wrote,

“Some markers I thought to be of interest…In Germany, in December, a terrorist drove a truck into a crowd of people at a Christmas Market. There were also several other planned terror attacks against Germany in that period. The unrivaled Mark Steyn, who has been prophesying and chronicling all this, writes: “The Christkindlmarkt is a German tradition dating back to the Middle Ages: Munich’s is over 700 years old. A society that can only hold three-quarters-of-a-millennium-old traditions behind an impenetrable security perimeter is a society that will soon lose those traditions.” There are some 5,000,000 Muslims in Germany.”

Another milestone has been reached. Be wary–these are the sort of milestones you don’t want to be reaching. A young Israeli man with a kippah on his head was attacked in the streets of Berlin, Germany by three Arabs, one of whom attacked him with his belt, all the while denigrating him as a Jew. See this video, which is a combination  of footage of the attack, and a subsequent interview on TV. But the fascinating part of this horror is that the Israeli attacked with Jewish head covering is not a Jew. He is an Israeli Arab. He says that he had been given the kippah by a friend, who told him that it unsafe to walk on the streets of Berlin with a kippah. This Israeli Arab young man had disagreed, saying that it was perfectly safe to walk the streets with a kippah. And to prove that very point, he, the non-Jewish Arab kid, put on the kippah and walked down the street, expecting to be perfectly safe and secure. His shield of naiveté was shattered, however, when he was viciously attacked in the streets of Germany’s capital by people that share his Arab heritage (if not his religion, as well).

Make no mistake, anti-Semitism has returned to Germany, and not in the guise of the Nazi jackboot.
