More Antisemitism

I just shared with you information about the antisemitic church sermon on Sunday.  I opened my daily email from the Jewish Telegraph Agency (JTA) and I read that an American tourist in Belgium was refused service in a restaurant for being Jewish.  He was reportedly told, “We’re not serving Jews here, get out.” [Read more here.]

What is going on in our world?

  1. Sir,
    you got the news wrong. this man was angry that the price of coffee in this five star restaurant was very high, for all people, and he got angry and made a stink and that is why he was kicked out. Not because he was a Jew or wearing a kippa. Get the facts correct before you JUMP to conclusions. i might also ask of you, sir, what is wrong with your world, that you JUMP so quick without finding out the truth of this sad story. the man was a crazy old skunk who was angry about money. MONEY! not about his yarmulke at all, have you never heard of Jews like that?

    I am following this story. It appears that the Professor was angry about the high prices and started arguing with the waiter about the money……and THIS is what led to his being kicked out, not his Jewish religion or his yarmulke……and being born in SS camp had nothing to do with this. He might be a liar. There are good Jews and there are bad Jews. Like all people. he might be a crazy kind of guy. check into this.

    KEY HERE:

    since they charged him 3 times the going rate for coffee, he probabluy became angry, as Americans do and started crying . he is an old man, after all, this had nothing to do with being Jewish…A

    Joods Actueel contacted him and he didn’t deny that he kicked out the man, but said ***he did so because the man acted peculiarly. ****

    Realizing that there might be consequences the waiter said that he was willing to apologize to the professor if he would so wish.

    Sir,

    The story should have been reported:

    Marcel Kalmann, a 64-year-old US professor, told the Antwerp Jewish magazine Joods Actueel that he was ejected from the renowned restaurant Le Panier d’Or in Bruges after he became angry about the high price of coffee the waiter was charging him.

    When the waiter saw his yarmulke under his cap, he used this detail to call the man a Jew, but that was not the reason the man became angry in the first place.

    this story has been blown completely out of proportion, the man was a jerk. and acted like an Ugly American, not like a Jew. his religion had nothing to do with it

    check the facts. o i forgot, facts are not important anymore. pure emotion is all that counts. esp in regard to antisem, which
    is real

    allen bean is making a case and I don’t think it’s one he thinks he’s making. Just out of curiosity, was Le Panier d’Or charging everyone 3 times the going rate for coffee. Even if the answer is “yes” bringing the Jew thing in still shows a lack of class and common courtesy.
