Munich – On April 5th, 2019, a Jewish woman noticed married couple she was not familiar with at the tent of Jacob in front of the main synagogue in Munich. The husband said to his wife in a loud voice: “Look now, these buildings there were built for the Jews’s shit”, “the poor Palestinians, nothing has happened yet to the Jews, only the Palestinians.”

The woman wanted to know where the husband derived his information. As a result, she was treated as a “rat”. Following her statement that her husband’s approach sounded like a Nazi approach, the wife replied: “My husband is not a Nazi”. The husband became visibly angrier and thought that the Jews should indeed be destroyed, and asked the woman why she intervened at all.

The woman began photographing the quarrel on her cell phone and informed the husband. The latter cursed her, warmed up in the heat of his speech, and wondered why one must be moved by such a “bundle of shit.” The woman replied: “Because I am a Jew myself”. As a result, he said, “Too bad, you’re guilty yourself, you piece of shit”.
