A messianic Jewish leader says it is becoming more and more clear that Germany has not learned its lesson about stopping anti-Semitism.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has condemned a street assault in Berlin on two young men wearing Jewish yarmulkes that has stoked the debate about anti-Semitism in the country.
The victim of the attack told German TV that he wasn't Jewish but is an Israeli from an Arab family.
Adam Armoush said he wore the yarmulke to make a point to a friend who warned him it was risky to do so in Germany.
"I was saying it's really safe," the young man explained, "and I wanted to prove it. But it ended like that."
The incident comes at a time of increased fears of anti-Semitism since attacks against Jews are on the rise.
Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, says there is sad irony that these incidents are happening not just in Western Europe but in Germany itself.
"Did they not learn their lessons from World War II?" she asks.
Merkel, Markell observes, keeps making the matter worse and worse by refusing to limit immigration.
"It's an intentional plan on the part of Muslims," Markell alleges, "and it's obvious they're succeeding in taking over the first the country, then a continent, and then the world for Islam."
