Attackers threw Molotov cocktails at a synagogue in the western city of Wuppertal in the early hours of Tuesday in an apparent attempt to burn it down.

A neighbour alarmed police after spotting flames near the Bergische Synagogue in Gemarker Straße in the eastern district of Barmen at around 2.15 am.

Police said they believed three young arsonists had thrown several Molotov cocktails in the direction of the synagogue doors. Officers found broken bottles on the ground at the entrance, police said in a statement.

if only we could get the Germans to get passionate about muslims. I wouldn’t shed a tear if they were wiped out of the timeline.

“Attackers threw Molotov cocktails at a synagogue in the western city of Wuppertal in the early hours of Tuesday in an apparent attempt to burn it down.”

This attack alone should be enough for Chancellor Merkel to call out Germany’s version of the national guard to protect Jews and their synagogues and lock down any and all radical muslim areas with the point of a bayonet and threats of immediate deportation back to the sh*thole they came from. Come on, Merkel, your country is under attack by Nazis - again.

His name wasn't mentioned in the article. We do know that Germany has a rather "vibrant" Muzzie population.

As far as the threats on the Rabbi goes,

Dieter Graumann, president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany told the Frankfurter Rundschau on Tuesday that the rabbi received the call last Friday from a Palestinian man.
Now how the Rabbi knew the caller was "Palestinian" I don't know. But he probably did have a thick, middle-Eastern accent.

Ah, just like the good old days.

As Yogi Berra would say, “It’s deja vu all over again” and he would be right.

Next, Vichy France speaks up, in German.
