A few Muslim students are at the center of controversy in Berlin for bullying a Jewish boy by praising Adolf Hitler for his murdering of Jews.
The incident occurred at Ernst Reuter High School during lunch on Dec. 13, when teenagers were discussing Israel. An 18-year-old Jewish student opined he did not favor a Palestinian state, which led to several Arab classmates ganging up on hims with demeaning remarks. Student witnesses claim one girl yelled “Hitler was good! Because he killed the Jews.”Other students yelled to the boy “You are child killers” and “they should cut off your heads.”
The school’s principal, Andreas Huth, announced on the school’s website that the incident revealed an “anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish and anti-Israel attitude against which we have reacted, and will continue to do so.”
In an additional statement, Huth said he profoundly regretted that any student was “subjected to discrimination” and underscored his commitment to “counter anti-Semitism in all its manifestations.”
He further mentioned that legal options are being considered, since the Jewish student is now fearful for his life when present at the school.
The incident, which comes amid other reports of anti-Semitism in Germany, including by a man outside a Jewish-owned restaurant in Berlin, reportedly occurred during a lunch break
In Berlin, anti-Semitism among Muslims is skyrocketing. Recent protests in response to the U.S. announcement supporting Jerusalem as Israel’s capital were marked by the burning of Israeli flags and calls for “death to Jews.”
