15-year-old German-Jewish student Liam Rückert told the BZ daily on Friday that he plans to relocate to Israel to continue his education due to what he said was rampant Muslim Jew-hatred in the Berlin public school system.
JPost In 2016, a student of Arab origin said during a discussion of the Middle East conflict in Rückert’s class: “If there is a Jewish student in the class, I would kill him.” According to the BZ article, students of mainly Arab Muslim descent have targeted Liam with insults such as “shitty Israeli” and “shitty Jew.”
The Berlin school barred Liam from changing classes at the school named Jungfernheide. The school has the highest number of migrants in the city, with 62.1 % of the students having a mostly Muslim immigrant background.
“I could previously trust my Arab friend Hussein,” said Rückert, adding that the two boys “both had a secret: that I am a Jew and that he is gay.” Rückert said he has anxiety to return to the school and declines to attend a required meeting every Friday because of the psychological pressure, the BZ wrote. Rückert is currently involved in an internship outside of the school.
According to Liam’s mother, Billy, a native of Israel and who has taught Hebrew to her two sons, teachers at the German school sought to play down the anti-Semitic attacks. “We received no support from the school,” said Billy on a German TV talk show.
The BZ wrote that antisemitic attacks in Berlin schools are a daily occurrence. Last week, the father of a German Jewish girl said his daughter was “accosted by Muslim students because she does not believe in Allah.”
Frank Jansen, a national security reporter at the Berlin daily Tagesspiegel, reported on Wednesday that the Salafi–Sunni extremist movement has doubled its numbers in Germany, citing numbers from the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Germany’s domestic intelligence agency.
According to the report, the number of radical Sunni Islamic extremists now totals 11,000, with 850 in Berlin alone. The city and state of Berlin register a total 250 Hezbollah members.
The US considers all of Hezbollah as terrorist entity while Berlin only proscribed Hezbollah’s military wing a terrorist organization. According to Berlin’s local intelligence agency, there are 70 Hamas members operating in the capital. The US and the EU list Hamas as a terrorist organization.
Top German-born designer, Karl Lagerfeld, attacked German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the Salut les Terriens! Show on the C8 channel on November 11 for her policy of open borders for Muslim refugees.
He observed that one cannot – even if decades pass between these events – kill millions of Jews and turn around and put millions of Jew haters in their place. Lagerfeld added: “I know someone in Germany who took in a young Syrian who after four days said: ‘The greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust.’ The young man was thrown out.”
