On May 12, 2021, hundreds of pro-Palestinian Muslims gathered outside a synagogue in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, chanting and shouting threatening anti-Jewish obscenities. A video captured police refusing to intervene despite threats and chants of “Shiese Juden,” equivalent to “sh*t jews, f*cking jews” in English. The night before, Israeli flags were lit in front of synagogues attacked in Münster and Bonn.
After two hours of the anti-Israel radicals terrorize Jews, the police finally disbanded the Muslim mob. Many demonstrators waved Palestinian, Turkish, and Tunisian flags (all Muslim countries).
A policeman was captured in the controversial film clip talking to a Muslim violating Germany’s coronavirus mask mandate. German Police were caught again applying one set of standards for Muslims violating the state’s “mask” and “social distancing” mandates and another for Germans attempting to defend their basic rights.
Authorities claim they did not stop the crowd because they did not have enough officers on the scene. A police spokesman stated that their main goal was to protect the synagogue. Many questioned why it took the police two hours to gather more officers to disband the crowd.
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called for better protection of synagogues in Germany. “There can be zero tolerance for attacks on synagogues in our country,” Maas told the media. “And as sad as it is that this is even necessary: The state must guarantee the security of the synagogues without any ifs or buts.”
Maas appealed to all citizens not to accept “when people of the Jewish faith in Germany are held responsible for events in the Middle East – on the street as well as on social media.”
Chancellor Angela Merkel has welcomed almost two million people from some of the most antisemitic countries in the world to immigrate to Germany. As a result, Jewish people are living in fear and being attacked, threatened, and murdered. Despite pleas from the Jewish community to stop importing Islamic antisemitism, Merkel instead fights to silence and prosecute anyone exposing the problem.
