Berlin 2017: “Go back to your gas chambers”

❌ ⚠️ BERLIN 2017: German Nazi offended by the Hanukkah Menorah and the Star of David, verbally attacking the Israeli owner of a fancy Jewish restaurant shouting: “Go back to your gas chambers, where you belong. You don’t belong here, nobody wants you in the world. You are just a guest in Palestine. You are a guest in Germany. Go back to your gas chambers.”

Yorai Feinberg, whose restaurant bears his name, told the German news media that he often had to deal with anti-Semitism on the street, and he receives about two pieces of hate mail per month. This time, a friend of Feinberg was on hand to record the exchange.

Israel’s ambassador to Germany, Jeremy Issacharoff, stopped by Feinberg’s on Thursday and commented to the German media that it was important to “deal right away with such cases, with zero tolerance.”

“The right reaction to any kind of anti-Semitism is an immediate reaction,” he said.

Meanwhile, Facebook officials apologized for having temporarily removed the video from its platform and shutting down the profile of a friend of Feinberg who had posted it. Both have since been restored.
