A 31-year-old man was caught pulling the hair of a 16-year-old girl in a small Bavarian town celebrating Oktoberfest this week, because she had a foreign name that sounded Jewish, Main Post reported last week.

The incident occurred around 2:15 p.m. when five or six revelers at the Oktoberfest celebration at the youth center in Adelsberg began exchanging names.

After one girl shared hers, a man standing nearby apparently grew “aggressive” and asked her where her “foreign-sounding name” was from. He then began pulling her hair and screaming, “You Jew!”

Bystanders managed to restrain the aggressor, allowing the girl to get away. The teenager then filed a complaint with police against the man for assault and verbal abuse.

    ‘Me Tarzan, you Jew!’ Alcohol reveals our inner hidden self. The irony is that most Ashkenazic Jews have German-sounding names. There is an old story of the SS officer who met a Jewish barrister on the street in Berlin. The SS officer clicked his heels and gave the slute as he shouted in the Jew’s face, ‘Schweinhunt’. The Jew clicked his heels and gave the salute, saying, ‘Grunfeld, Pleased to meet you!’

    Germany is experiencing its second reunification right now. Exactly 25 years ago East and West Germany merged. Now German and Arab antisemites grow together. To quote Chancellor Helmut Kohl: “Now comes together what belongs together”.
    It’s getting time to leave again. My parents immigrated here from Communist Poland, I seriously intend to move on.

    It’s a shame. We need to stop the moslemic influence on society in Europe – especially all antisemtic tendencies and especially in Germany. People like the aggressor should be put in jail, far away from society.

    It’s a great tragedy that she didn’t gun him down.
