Muslim Antisemitism on the Rise at Berlin Schools
“It is even an issue in kindergartens.”
A latest incident of school bullying has again highlighted the issue of antisemitism among Germany’s Muslim youth. The case involves a second-grade Jewish girl at a Berlin elementary school who was bullied by her Muslim classmates.
The authorities apparently tried to downplay the incident, with school headmaster initially describing the death threat issued to the Jewish girl by her Muslim classmates as a conversation “on the topic of faith and religion.”
According to local media reports, this nature of ‘religious’ bullying is not limited to the Jewish students alone and is exclusively carried out by their Muslim peers.
“Apparently, Muslim circles have turned their focus on Jews. But non-Jews shouldn’t consider themselves lucky, or lean back and relax. I fear other minorities could soon be targeted as well,” Josef Schuster, the head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews told the public broadcaster DW News.
Berlin-based newspaper Der Tagesspiegel reported the details of the incident:
Religious bullying coupled with an antisemitic incident at the Paul-Simmel elementary school in Berlin’s Tempelhof district has again brought the problem to notice of the public. A girl was verbally attacked by Muslim classmates during the course of two years–[she was subjected to phrase such as] “non-believers deserve to die.” The fact that she had a Jewish father was not known [to the classmates initially].
Apart from that an ISIS beheading video had been making rounds on the WhatsApp group of the students of the school. School authorities and police were informed.
Antisemitic incidents are on the rise at the school in recent years, especially involving Muslims. [Translation by Author]
“On the whole, the religious motivated mobbing is widely prevalent in Berlin schools and–as known so far–only from Muslim side,” Der Tagesspiegel confirmed in a separate report.
The German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung revealed the extent of the problem in the city of Berlin while reporting on the latest incident of antisemitic mobbing:
“You Jew” as a term of abuse is a “widely witnessed phenomena at Berlin schools,” says [a survey carried out among teachers]. This is “very common,” said several members of teaching staff. […]
“It is not an isolated case,” says Marina Chernivsky, the head of an anti-Semitic watchdog in Berlin […], “We are not surprised by it. Such cases occur practically every week. It is even an issue in kindergartens. [Translation by Author]
Der Tagesspiegel apparently tracked down the toxic source of the antisemitic and Islamist tendencies at this particular elementary school:
Templehof’s Paul Simmel elementary school is located in the vicinity of the Ibrahim al Khalil mosque that has been classified as Salafist (radical Islamic) by the German domestic intelligence agency [BfV]. The authorities are aware of 176 Salafists that regularly attend the extremist house of worship. The domestic intelligence agency has been warning about the Ibrahim al Khalil mosque and other Islamist facilities in the city. [Translation by Author]
Since Germany opened its border in the wake of the migrant crisis of 2015, Berlin has seen an upsurge in Islamist activities. The number of Islamists in the city has reached a record high, with authorities monitoring up to 1,000 Muslim radicals.
So far, the Merkel government has failed to address the issue of growing Muslim antisemitism in the country.
Last December, when hundreds of Muslim demonstrators shouted “death to Jews” and chanted other genocidal slogans at Berlin’s landmark Brandenburg Gate, Chancellor Angela Merkel vaguely condemned their actions. “We oppose all forms of antisemitism and xenophobia.” she said without mentioning the obvious Islamic elephant in the room.
Even the law enforcement failed to act at that time, with the spokesman of the Berlin police describing the Muslim gangs chanting “death to Jews” as “behaving emotionally.”
If Germany wants to remain a home for its tiny Jewish population, it can’t go on like business as usual.

Let’s sit by and do nothing.
Or, if we’re obama or klinton, or the GOPe: let’s bring them here!
Well… it IS Europe after all.
The Multiculturalist Fourth Reich. The ends justify the means. So what does it matter if a few ethnic Saxon girls or haus frau’s get raped – or a few Jews are physiclly and psychologically harassed? Herr Merkel and her sausage-eater pals are building the Perfect Society. So stop your whining and submit to the EU totalitarians.
I highly recommend this book:

Scholars, journalists, and even politicians uphold Muslim-ruled medieval Spain—“al-Andalus”—as a multicultural paradise, a place where Muslims, Christians, and Jews lived in harmony.
There is only one problem with this widely accepted account: it is a myth.
In this groundbreaking book, Northwestern University scholar Darío Fernández-Morera tells the full story of Islamic Spain. The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise shines light on hidden history by drawing on an abundance of primary sources that scholars have ignored, as well as archaeological evidence only recently unearthed.
This supposed beacon of peaceful coexistence began, of course, with the Islamic Caliphate’s conquest of Spain. Far from a land of religious tolerance, Islamic Spain was marked by religious and therefore cultural repression in all areas of life and the marginalization of Christians and other groups—all this in the service of social control by autocratic rulers and a class of religious authorities.
The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise provides a desperately needed reassessment of medieval Spain. As professors, politicians, and pundits continue to celebrate Islamic Spain for its “multiculturalism” and “diversity,” Fernández-Morera sets the historical record straight—showing that a politically useful myth is a myth nonetheless.”
Prof. Fernandez-Morera’s book absolutely destroys the fable that Muslim rulers in occupied Spain were benign, tolerant, and enlightened. They were not. The last third of the book consists entirely of end notes. He cites reams of original sources. The “scholars” who peddle the fiction that the medieval Islamic world was much more advanced than medieval Christendom simply can not refute Fernandez-Morera’s superbly researched book. They would like to, and many have offered weak responses. Which are predicated on the notion that you simply won’t read Fernandez-Morera’s book and discover just how disingenuous their attempts are.
Yes, I realize that Jews were not well treated in Christian Europe. But things weren’t any better under Muslim rulers.
“In the year 1066, on December 30, a deadly pogrom that would come to be known as the Granada Massacre took place.
At that time, Granada was part of the Muslim-ruled al Andalus, a medieval Muslim state also known as Moorish Iberia or Islamic Iberia. At the start of the 11th century, times were incredibly tough for the Jewish community of Granada, where Jews were prohibited from attaining public office and violent outbreaks were fairly commonplace.
In 1066, a Jewish man known as Joeseph ibn Naghrela was vizier, or advisor, to the Berber king of Granada, Badis al-Muzaffar. Joseph was also head of the local Jewish community, with a long history of leadership in the area. He was the eldest son of a rabbi and Jewish poet, Sh’muel ha-Nagid, who had also served as a royal vizier.
On December 30 of 1066, an angry mob stormed the royal palace of Granada, where Joseph had sought refuge after accusations of surrounding the king with spies. The mob kidnapped Joseph and brutally crucified him. In the chaos that followed, many of the town’s Jews were also slain…”
The Muslims committed many other pogroms against the Jews and massacres of Christians in areas that they ruled, as well as mass expulsions of conquered non-Muslims because the northern Spaniards resisted so stoutly, and quickly made gains against the Muslims, that the Muslims feared their conquered non-Muslim subjects as a potential fifth column. So the force them to North Africa. Thousands upon thousands were killed, and many more ejected.
Under all schools of Sharia law whether Sunni or Shia, no dhimmi (the “ahl al Khuttab” or “people of the book”) could have a position of authority over Muslims. It wasn’t that Joseph ibn Naghrela was “ostentatious.” It was that he was a Jew. And as a Jew he had violated the “Pact of Umar” that permitted dhimmis to live as long as they accepted a degraded, third class status and paid the “protection money.” That is, the money that protected them from the Muslims. If they violated this or any other clause of the “Pact of Umar” their lives were forfeit. It didn’t really matter that the Emir of Grenada had placed these Jews in this positions of authority. Jews, like Christians, were expected to know their place regardless of what less-than-devout rulers offered them.

“The Martyrs of Córdoba – Sharia Law brutality in 9th century Spain
The Martyrs of Córdoba consist of a group of rebelious christians living under strict sharia law in southern Spainish city of Córdoba under occupation from invading Islamic armies during the 9th century. The christian martyrs refused to obey the laws of Islam and courageously chose martyrdom for Jesus Christ.”
Actually in most cases the martyrs did not start out by openly defying Islamic law. They were asked why they didn’t accept Islam, and were assured by their Muslim interlocutors that they would not denounce them to the Muslim authorities for simply explaining the reasons for their unbelief. But as Sophronius of Jerusalem discovered, Muslims don’t keep their word to dhimmis because they don’t have to. It’s why so many Pakistani Christians are on death row or lynched for violating that countries blasphemy laws today. Nothing has changed since the advent of Islam to date.
And the Christians accepted their fate then as they do now when they are falsely accused by Muslims. Because according to Sharia, simply explaining why you are a Christian (or Jew) is not blasphemy. But as a dhimmi your word against a Muslim counts for nothing in a Sharia court. Ask Asia Bibi.
Nothing has changed since the time Islam was first fabricated about 70 years after Islam was first fabricated after the “prophet” theoretically died until now. How could it?
“Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah, and [those animals] killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a head-long fall or by the goring of horns, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you [are able to] slaughter [before its death], and those which are sacrificed on stone altars, and [prohibited is] that you seek decision through divining arrows. That is grave disobedience. This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. THIS DAY I HAVE PERFECTED FOR YOU YOUR RELIGION and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion. But whoever is forced by severe hunger with no inclination to sin – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
How can a mere human being alter or reform the uncreated, eternal word of Allah when Allah says he has already made Islam perfect? It’s blasphemy.
So, why do Western apologists for Islam trade in this nonsense about the sheer wonderfulness of Al Andalus. There are three main reasons. Originally in the 18th and 19th century it was due to anti-Catholic bias. Despite the fact that Visigothic Spain was light years ahead of Islam in terms of cultural and intellectual achievement, and that the Muslim invaders were largely illiterate Berbers who were only interested in taking the fabled beauties of Spain as sex slaves (hey, can you think of anyone who is only interested in that today) the early apologists simply could not admit that Catholic anything could be superior to anything else. Including Islam.
Then there’s the impact that Saudi petrodollars has had on what now passes for Islamic studies.
But while the money is a nice perk, a great many Islamic studies professors were and are quite willing to pervert history to fit their agenda. And their agenda is multiculturalism. So they invented a multicultural past in order to portray anyone who opposes it a mindless bigot.
Get Fernandez-Morera’s book.
It isn’t only Berlin, we are seeing the Anti-Semitic rise here in the Good Ol’ US of A as well. History repeats itself, especially when lessons of history are blurred and blunted and newly revised history takes its place.
Progressives never truly change. Germany’s history cannot wipe out what generations did before them. And despite the punishment received, the Antisemitism was quieted, but not dispelled. Bringing in immigrants who are of this stripe only plays into the beliefs that lie beneath the surface. This isn’t only immigrants committing this attitude.
“…A girl was verbally attacked by Muslim classmates during the course of two years–[she was subjected to phrase such as] ‘non-believers deserve to die.'”
Not to diminish the anti-Semitism inherent in Islam, but it’s not any easier for Christians in schools in Berlin (and throughout Germany) who have to deal with these hateful Muslim opportunists.
Islam is not a religion of peace and tolerance. It’s an ideology of conquest, forced conversion of anyone who doesn’t possess a scripture they deign to recognize as divine revelation (i.e. Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, etc.), and the violent subjugation of anyone who are what they consider “people of the book” (.i.e. Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, etc.).
We have been sold a history that is a pack of lies. If you read original sources, such as the writings of Sophronius of Jerusalem, being conquered by the Arabs in the 7th century always meant oppression, violence, rape, and slavery. The Muslims (and consequently Western apologists for Islam) paint being conquered by the Arabs (who were not yet Muslims, as Islam had not yet been invented) it was all sweetness and light. According to them Christians and Jews practically welcomed their new Arab overlords. For instance, according to their fiction that they pass off as history, the Caliph who entered the Jerusalem after what was essentially a peaceful, negotiated hand-over was an enlightened, cultured, and generous ruler. Sophronius was giving the Caliph a tour of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre when the time for prayer came, and Sophronius invited the Caliph Umar to pray inside the Church. Umar declined the offer because if he prayed inside the Church his followers would insist on turning it into a Mosque. Umar instead insisted on praying outside.
Never happened. Here’s what the Orthodox Church has to say based upon the extant of Sophronius:
“…Toward the end of his life, Saint Sophronius and his flock lived through a two year siege of Jerusalem by the Moslems. Worn down by hunger, the Christians finally agreed to open the city gates, on the condition that the enemy spare the holy places. But this condition was not fulfilled, and Saint Sophronius died in grief over the desecration of the Christian holy places…”
Even certain Islamic historians, such as ibn Khaldoun (1332-1406), find the claim of enlightened and tolerant Muslim rule ridiculous. Ibn Khaldoun forthrightly states that the Arab Nomads who conquered large swaths of Byzantine empire were mostly illiterate and completely uninterested in culture. They were only interested in power. He thought it was ridiculous that the Muslims claimed that their conquests led to a “golden age” for the conquered people.
The Germans finally got the minority that they deserve. Remind me to urinate a tear for them.
As for the Jews remaining, they know what to do. Lots of room in Israel and the US. The IDF there and 2A here. Whatever the future holds, it won’t end like the last time.
