First they came for the Jews wearing the Star of David or Kippah on the streets of Berlin, as was the case with the 67 year-old Jewish man brutally assaulted in the broad day light in 2014, or the 53 year-old Berlin Rabbi and his young daughter, who were attacked and threatened with death, two years earlier. In both of these cases and many others to follow, the attackers were migrant Muslim men.
The German media and political establishment have always been reluctant to admit the inherent Jew-hatred within the country’s growing Muslim population. But the gangs that once targeted Germany’s tiny Jewish population are now taking aim at the country’s majority Christian population as well.
“Three youths attacked a man because he was wearing a cross,” reported the German newspaper Die Welt today. Not wanting to divulge the religious motives behind the attack, the newspaper describes the attackers as “assailants of North African origin.”
This Islamist violence does not limit itself to targeting ex-Muslims alone. For years, teachers across Germany have been raising the alarm about Turkish and Arab gang violence against native-born students and teachers.
