A 22-year-old Israeli man was the victim of the second anti-Semitic attack to occur outside a Chabad House this week, this time in Berlin. The Islamic attackers saw him leave the Chabad house and they then attacked him, reports Yeshiva World News.
The man was transported and treated at a local hospital.
The attack occurred early Sunday evening in Berlin’s Wilmersdorf neighborhood.
According to a witness, the man was attacked by four men, who cursed him in German with Arabic accents. He was punched and kicked. The victim said that if not for the intervention of a passerby, he fears the outcome would have been far more serious. He was treated for multiple finger fractures and soft tissue injuries.
Israel Consul General to Berlin Eyal Siso has urged the victim to file a formal complaint with police.
Ironically, the victim explained he was looking into relocating to Europe due to the high cost of living in Israel. He had ruled out moving to France due to the anti-Semitism in that country, and he was thinking about Berlin as an alternative.
Yesterday, CrownHeights.info reported that a 4-year-old boy was slapped on his head after leaving a Chabad house in Auckland, New Zealand.
