“I don’t serve Jews”: two antisemitic incidents in Berlin

Reports have emerged of two antisemitic incidents against Israeli tourists in Berlin.

1. Two security guards for the S-Bahn were checking an Israeli tourist on Tuesday morning.  He was having his ticket inspected and was asked to provide ID. When they saw his ID, they made antisemitic comments to him.  The security guards were described as ‘Mediterranean’.

2. An Israeli tourist ordered coffee at a fast-food restaurant in the Mitte borough.  A restaurant employee refused to take his order saying “I don’t serve Jews” (In English).  The employee finished his shift before police arrived.

It is as of yet unknown what, if any, action will be taken with regards to these two incidents.
