A 53-year old Jewish Rabbi walking with his daughter south of Berlin was attacked by four youths, possibly Arabs.

According to reports, one of the youths asked the Rabbi if he was Jewish. After answering in the affirmative, the youths blocked his exit, attacked him, and threatened to kill his daughter.

The Rabbi was hospitalized with head injuries.

In an unrelated story, Times of Israel is reporting that Germany has filed charges against Rabbi Itzhak Ehrenberg who publicly vowed on German TV to continue to perform Jewish circumcisions.

  1. But Muslims also do circumcisions, so I have the distinct feeling his attackers were not Arabs.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Do not always presume the attackers were Arabs, could be the Germans that anti Jewish.

  4. Robin Yvonne Have you ever heard of a non Jewish Rabbi?

  5. I read in a German newspaper that the attackers had an 'Arab background'. I am not surprised.

  6. Des Branagh says:

    So what has the German government to say about Arab circumcision? Oh how short a memory Germany has! 914 -1918 —1939-1945 Here we go again 2012.
