Germany: Company fires worker for ‘F*** You Israel’ Facebook post

Via Jerusalem Post (h/t CFCA):
The German multinational company Hasco discharged a group leader who denigrated Israel and Judaism on his Facebook page.

Christoph Ehrlich, a managing director of the firm, told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that the 35-year-old German Muslim trade union member was dismissed from his job in the global supplier tool and mold-making equipment company, which is located in the city of Lüdenscheid in North Rhine-Westphalia state.

“The appropriate actions were taken. The group leader is no longer a member of our company. We will in the future speak out against every form of racism or racist informed statements,” Ehrlich said.
The Post reported on the case during the first week of June and asked Hasco about its defense of the employee’s anti-Semitic statements.

The team leader crossed out a Star of David and wrote, “F*** You Israel,” on his Facebook page. The posting remained on his Facebook page for more than a year.
