Jewish teen claims Muslim classmates threatened to kill him, by Lauro Italiano.
A Jewish teenager from Britain says he feared for his life at a top Berlin school because of violent bullying by Muslim classmates.
“I was terrified and just went to the ground” when the bullies pulled a fake gun and threatened to kill him, the 14-year-old boy told The Sunday Times of London, which identified him only by his surname, Ferdinand.
“Everyone burst into laughter and called me gay,” Ferdinand — who is the grandson of Holocaust survivors — said of his classmates at the Friedenau Gemeinschaftsschule.
Ferdinand told the Times he suffered daily taunts and frequent painful kicking and punching attacks by students of Middle Eastern and Turkish origin.
