Protest In Germany against Anti Semitism.

Anti-semitism is hostility to, prejudice, or discrimination against Jews. A person having such positions is called an antisemite. Antisemitism is generally considered to be a form of racism.

In July 2012, two ladies were attacked in Germany, showered with poisonous gas, and were indicated a “Hitler salute,” evidently as a result of a Star of David jewelry that they wore.

In late August 2012, Berlin police examined an assault on a 53-year-old rabbi and his 6-year-old girl, supposedly by four Arab adolescents, after which the rabbi required treatment for head wounds at a medical clinic. The police grouped the assault as a scorn wrongdoing. Jüdische Allgemeine detailed that the rabbi was wearing a kippah and was drawn closer by one of the adolescents, who inquired as to whether he was Jewish. The teenager at that point assaulted the rabbi while hollering prejudiced remarks, and took steps to slaughter the rabbi’s girl.

An Horrific act of anti-Semitism took  place outside the synagogue. Jewish student was attacked outside German synagogue. It was an attempted murder with strong anti-semantic intent. The Chancellor Angela Merkel called this act an “disgrace”. The incident was in Hamburg Synagogue.

A 26 year old student was very badly injured while stepping out of the synagogue by a man who repeatedly stuck him over his head with a shovel. The Jewish people that day were celebrating Sukkot, A Jewish festival. Also known as the feast of Tabernacles.

The incident took place in the retaliation of an act which happened an year ago in the German city of Halle, were two people were shot dead by the extremist when they were violently entering the synagogue.

The suspect, 29 year old was arrested as soon as this happened. The police was already present to protect the synagogue. The suspect was dressed in combat outfit with a hand drawn swastika sign in his pocket.

It has been estimated that over 2031 such cases took place last year that is 2019.
