BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 P.M.) – A 25 year-old Syrian Jewish man was attacked by a group of 10 people in Berlin’s Mitte district early Saturday morning, confirmed police spokesperson Martin Halweg in the German capital on Sunday.

“Around 00:30 [on Saturday] a 25-year-old asked a group of people for a lighter in the park [James Simon Park]. The question alone already led to a verbal argument between him and members of this group,” Halweg stated.

“One of his opponents then spotted that the 25-year-old was wearing on a necklace with a David’s star on it; he ripped it off, made an anti-Semitic remark and suddenly punched the victim in the face multiple times,” explained Halweg.

“At first only one member of the group attacked the 25-year-old, punching him to the ground. He then got back on his feet and fled for few metres but then collapsed due to the beatings. Some members of the group followed him and punched and kicked him while he was on the ground,” he continued.

The police spokesperson said that the suspects were arrested shortly afterwards.

“The police State Security department is now investigating for aggravated battery with anti-semitic background,” concluded Halweg.

I don’t believe this is natural event. Why would he ask for a lighter wearing a star of David? Why is he Syrian not Israel..to claim Syrians are anti-Semitic.
Why is he in Germany there are no sufficient information.

LOL. Why not ask for a light while wearing a Star of David at 1.00 hours in the morning? He wanted to smoke – shops were closed. As necklace or tattoo You can wear the Holy Cross or the Star of David or Ali’s Scimitar. It is no crime. In Germany normal people would not attack You for it. Berlin Police report says: a Syrian Jew approached a group of 8 of his country men… So presumably all are holders of Syrian passports or German citizens whose ancestors migrated to Germany from Syria. p.s. After the 1948 war Syria treated… Read more »

“The number of anti-Semitic offenses in Berlin has been rising in recent years. In 2017, police had registered 288 anti-Semitic acts; in 2016, 197 anti-Semitic cases had been recorded. The Research and Information Center Antisemitism Berlin (RIAS) counts a total of 947 anti-Semitic incidents for 2017, but there may be unrecorded case.”

Mossad has 1,200 employees… Well, they must work 24/7 and have the ubiquity super-power to do as much as you blame them of…
Mossad surely recruits all of the Charles Xavier’s school rejects that don’t enter the X-Men…

Which is true. But who many of these crimes were committed with people coming from families with migration background?

Zionists shills and dim wits immediately point at resurrecting Fascism.
German Fascism – they claim. And they forget that Israeli and Arab wars of aggression caused mutual hatred. Immigrants bring their hatred and wars to Germany.

It holds water. He approached 8 Syrian compatriots for a light. They took objection to the jewellery he wore. The Star of David is a political symbol too. Not only a religious one.

p.s. All Muslim countries evicted most of their native Jews and confiscated most of theirr land and valuables after the 1948 war. 60 % of the Israeli population descend refugees from Muslim countries.

Syrians know exactly who is behind that terrible war in their country. Those filthy beasts from Israhell would kill millions because of their Yinon plan.

Ruptly has worked shoddy this time. Welt/Berliner Zeitung…: Berlin police nabbed 8 men of Syrian descend. A presumably anti-semitic attack happened near an S Bahn station, inside James-Simon-Park, at 1.00 hours. A 25 yo Syrian Jew was allegedly attacked by 8 of his country men. Before the attack he had asked them for a light for his cigarette. They gave him the light. At this one of the group saw a Star of David on the necklace the man was wearing. This resulted in an attack. The young man suffered cuts and was treated as an ambulatory patient. The state… Read more »

why do specific groups of interest still use the term semitic´ which was mainly introduced through political motivations of third reich ideologist for propaganda purposes?

it is clear that the term is completly in incorrect use as semites are a group of people in the levante which consists mostly of arabs.

these specific interests groups which are still using the false term for propaganda purposes massively today are completly political motivated. taking advantage and playing the pure hatress otriented card. these groups are the todays NAZIS and fascists.

German Police say they nabbed 8 men of Syrian descend and the Zio Press makes it 6 Syrians and some Germans. Naturally a Syrian holding a German Passport is a German national. But You and Haaretz do this bias by design. You want to slander Germany as SS and Fascist. What do You want to extort this time – is it money or do You need help for Your colonial wars? You French and the Zionists hypocrites have committed Fascist stile war crimes in much the same way as the Fascists. You are Munafiqun to slander Germany and the Germans… Read more »
