BERLIN (JTA) — A video of a 60-year-old man spewing an anti-Semitic rant outside an Israeli restaurant in Berlin has gone viral.
The six-minute video of the man haranguing restaurateur Yorai Feinberg on Tuesday has been viewed more than 600,000 times on the internet since it was posted the same day. The man was released and the case is under investigation for inciting hate and resisting arrest.
Feinberg, whose restaurant bears his name, told the German news media that he often had to deal with anti-Semitism on the street, and he receives about two pieces of hate mail per month. This time, a friend of Feinberg was on hand to record the exchange.
“This guy saw my menorah in the window and suddenly started shouting,” Feinberg told the Spiegel online.
“Everything’s about money with you,” he says at one point. “What did you all want here after 1945? After 6 million of you were killed. What do you still want here?
Feinberg, who had been trying calmly to shake off the man, then sees a police car passing by. He runs and waves down the officers.
At which point the man says, “No one will protect you … you can all go to the gas chamber. No one wants you.”
