ilustrationCharlottenburg, Germany - On Monday morning, 13 children in grades 7, 8, and 9 who attend the Chabad School in Berlin- Charlottenburg were subjected to anti-Semitic taunts such as “Are you Jewish?” and were photographed by a group of several unidentified “Southern” youths believed to be Muslims. One of the perpetrators also spat on the ground in front of the students, Juedische-Allgemeine reports (http://bit.ly/OUES8A), but ran away when a teacher intervened. The school was founded in 2005.

In response to the incident, Dieter Graumann, president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany said, “The recent anti-Semitic incident in Berlin is very serious and cause for concern. Hostility towards Jews in Germany should not become a habit. The fact that “only” words were used as weapons does not mean that we can minimize these incidents.” He noted that this was not an isolated incident and added that society is responsible to respond to such incidents by sending a very clear message about the importance of fighting anti-Semitism among young people.

Gideon Joffe, head of the Berlin Jewish community, said, “It is about time that Muslim associations and organizations counter the Islamist ant-Semitism seriously and sustainably,” and remarked that it is in the interest of the entire German society to address anti-Semitism, recalling that history has taught that the Jews are always the first, but never the only victims.

Rabbi Yehuda Teichtal, who is affiliated with the school, was shocked by the incident. “Even during the violent attack on Rabbi Daniel Alter, his little daughter was threatened. Again children are the target of anti-Semitism. This is unacceptable,” Teichtal said. He called on the Berlin authorities to do everything in their power to capture the perpetrators and to ensure Jewish safety in the city.

People should notice that the series of recent anti-semitic incidents in Germany is coming from Arabs, who should never have been let into Germany. Thousands of Arabs have also been let into France, England, and the Scandinavian countries. Now, they have plenty of tsouris with them!
