EU labour movement president reported to Brussels police for alleged antisemitic assault

The president of an EU labour movement has reportedly been named in a complaint to police following an antisemitic assault at a café near EU headquarters in Brussels. According to the complaint, the EU official, Stefan Gersh, was holding a metal plaque bearing the name “Mussolini”. Another EU official — who is not Jewish — confronted him, saying that Mussolini was “still a dictator”. Gersh allegedly then said: “Dirty Jewess … Hitler should have exterminated all Jews, just like Jews today are exterminating Palestinians.” It is alleged that Gersh then hit her with the plaque, and when others at the café interceded he shouted: “All you Jews should have been killed.”
