Prosecutors have officially dropped a criminal investigation in the case of a Berlin rabbi who claimed he was allegedly spit on by Arabs for no apparent reason after he was leaving his synagogue:
State prosecutors confirmed Thursday that they had dropped the case after Rabbi Yehuda Teichtal, president of the city’s Chabad community, was unable to identify the suspects.
Teichtal had reported that several men insulted him in Arabic and spat on him from an apartment balcony after he left services at his synagogue in the Wilmersdof district of Berlin around 9:00 p.m. on July 26. The rabbi was in the company of his young son.
Four suspects questioned by investigators reportedly denied any involvement in the incident. No evidence was discovered on confiscated cell phones and no other witnesses were found.
Prosecutors explained to Teichtal’s lawyer in September that they were unable to proceed in the case. Ultimately, the lawyer agreed with the decision.
Teichtal told reporters he was disappointed in the outcome and suggested laws needed to be changed to make it easier to charge suspects in cases like his.
“We need this as Jews, given the increased threat of anti-Semitism,” he said. “The entire society needs this.”
The incident was one of several attacks last summer on Jews in the German capital. At the time, Teichtal said he was still convinced that “most people in Berlin want Jews to be able to live openly as Jews, without fear of being cursed at, spat on or beaten up.”
We previously reported on this bogus case after Rabbi Teichtal had received a personal visit from the President of Germany who expressed his concern and condolences. We also pointed out the patent absurdity of the rabbi’s eye witness testimony, which the Germany police apparently found equally unbelievable.
This Chabad rabbi, of course, is incensed that the word of the goyim would carry as much weight as a Jew’s. And these “new laws” he wants would basically mean that a Jew’s word must never be questioned and need not be corroborated by any other witnesses, in complete contradiction to the Torah that Jews claim to abide by.
Ideally, this rabbi would like to be able to accuse anybody he wants of ‘antisemitism’ and have them arrested and imprisoned just on his word alone. Of course, the rabbi’s insistence on special laws just for Jews won’t create more antisemitism, and if it did, well, that would be antisemitic.
