Reporter Antonia Yamim is harassed by Muslim immigrants in Germany because she was speaking in Hebrew.
“As you can see on the video you can’t report in Hebrew in Neukölln, Berlin without being disturbed and without people throwing firecrackers at you,” Yamin wrote.
Several men can be seen approaching Yamin and disrupting her report. She and her cameraman ran after a few seconds, and the video ends with a firecracker exploding.
Yamin, the Europe correspondent for Israel’s Kan, was born in Germany to a German Christian mother and an Israeli father, and was raised in Israel. The German daily Bild reported that the assailants were immigrants (almost surely from Middle Eastern countries not named Israel!).
Israel holds major drill to practice fighting Hamas and Hezbollah
After a battering of nearly 500 rockets launched at Israel two weeks ago, the Israeli military is running a 10-day large-scale exercise to prepare for possible concurrent attacks by both Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Hezbollah in Lebanon.
A two-front war would stretch Israel’s military capabilities and leave the center of the country vulnerable to terror attacks.
The fact that the Israel Defense Forces publicized this drill is possibly meant to serve as a warning to the two terror groups that Israel would be prepared for such a scenario. The drill is specifically for commando units.
Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip and borders southern Israel, is believed to be in possession of 10,000 rockets and mortar shells.
But Hezbollah, the Iranian-financed terror group based in Lebanon on Israel’s northern border, is believed to have 100,000 missiles in its arsenal. Israel fought a month-long war with the terror group in Lebanon in 2006 in which Hezbollah fired almost 4,000 rockets into Israel. Since then, the border has remained quiet.
