Angela Merkel denounces antiSemitic street attack in Berlin

During the attack, the assailant lashed the kippah-clad Jewish man with his belt and repeated the Arabic word for Jew, "Yahudi".

The incident took place in the fashionable Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood, which is very famous among many Israelis living in Berlin.

"It is unbearable to see a young Jewish man being attacked on the street in the well-situated Prenzlauer Berg district of Berlin because he is recognized as a Jew", Levi Salomon, spokesman for the group, said in a statement.

"Jews shall never again feel threatened here".

Foreign minister Heiko Maas said Germany "bears a responsibility to protect Jewish life", more than 70 years after the end of the Holocaust, in which the Nazis murdered six-million European Jews. We weren't talking with anyone else, ' Mr Armush told Israeli broadcaster Kan, according to Times of Israel.

Local police are investigating the attack, which was recorded by the victim. He said he was leaving his Berlin home when the three people came and started cursing at them.

The State Protection Office of the German police, which is responsible for politically-motivated offenses, has launched an investigation into the case.

'When they kept cursing us, my friend asked them to stop cursing, and that got them angry.


'I immediately felt it was important to film, because I didn't think we could catch him before police arrived.

Police said after the belt attack, the suspect's two companions took him away.

Armoush then lifts up his shirt on the video and shows bruises left by the belt. "I'm still in shock", he said.

"Anti-Semitism doesn't belong to the Berlin we want to live in", Michael Müller, the city's mayor said.

Reports of a rise in anti-Semitism are increasing across Germany, with the Homeland Ministry recently agreeing with proposals from Jewish leaders to strip anti-Semitic migrants of their right to remain in the country.

According to the RIAS group, some 947 anti-Semitic incidents including 18 attacks and 23 threats were documented in Berlin previous year.

Earlier this month, Germany appointed a diplomat to coordinate government activities against anti-Semitism.
