GERMANY: Jews Attacked in Berlin Nightclub

(YNET) Berlin police are investigating whether a brawl at a nightclub in the German capital involving two Israeli tourists and a man of "Palestinian" descent was provoked by anti-Semitism.

The Tagesspiegel reported Monday that the two Israelis, aged 22 and 18, were attacked at a nightclub located in the city's Kreuzberg district.

One of the club's employees reportedly approached the 22-year old tourist and asked him if he is Israeli. When the Israeli said he was, the man, who identified himself as a "Palestinian", began to beat him.

When the tourist's 18-year old friend attempted to defend him he, too, was attacked, and a beer glass was thrown at him.

The Israeli consul general in Berlin, Gadi Lahat, said the two were on a tour of Berlin's bars and that they had visited a number of establishments. He told Ynet the fight had broken out at a bar called Matrix, which was their final stop for the evening.

"The two Israelis, one of them a high-school graduate and the other recently discharged from the army, met two young ladies and were speaking to them before they were approached by the employee," he said.

Lahat added that police had not yet confirmed the brawl was a product of anti-Semitism. He said the club's bouncer had stopped the fight by spraying the two with tear gas.

The probe was reportedly handed over to a special police unit because of the possibility that anti-Semitism played a role in the assault.

After spending the night at a local hospital the two filed a police complaint, and are scheduled to return to Israel Tuesday.
