A group of Syrians and Germans have been arrested in Berlin after an alleged attack on a Syrian Jew outside of a nightclub.

The 25-year-old victim asked one of the group for a cigarette. However, one of the assailants noticed his Magen David necklace and started verbally abusing him. The verbal abuse quickly escalated and the group allegedly beat the Jewish man.

The victim ran away but lost his footing and was punched and kicked on the ground by the group. Passers by thankfully intervened in the attack and the police were alerted.

The group were detained and subsequently released pending further investigations.

After yet another violent antisemitic attack on the streets of Germany’s capital, the city’s Jews will be worrying yet again about their long-term future, as antisemitism in politics with the rise of AfD, in the fringes of the Palestine movement and on the streets seems to be spiralling out of control.
