A 20-year-old Palestinian male has allegedly attacked a 50-year-old Jewish Israeli professor in the German city of Bonn in an antisemitic attack.
The assailtant allegedly knocked the kippah of the professor’s head before shouting “no Jew in Germany”.
Astonishingly, the attack took place in front of police. When the victim called out for help, the police allegedly jumped in and punched him in the face.
Ursula Brohl-Sowa, Bonn’s police chief, described the incident as a “horrible and regrettable misunderstanding”, but this will be little comfort to the victim, who has since left the city. Antisemitic violence has seen a steep increase across Germany in recent months.
