A rabbi was filmed as he was subjected to hateful and “vile” road rage abuse in Melbourne’s south-east, including being told he “should’ve died in Auschwitz”.
The Melbourne-based rabbi was on his way to Shul late Monday night, and stopped at a set of lights on the Nepean Highway to check his phone before the driver of another car began abusing him.
In a 20-second video, a middle-aged male passenger in a grey vehicle can be heard calling the rabbi a “(expletive removed) selfish (expletive removed) of a Jew” as they sit stationary at a red light.
“Want me to get out and show you what Hitler did, no worries (expletive removed),” the man can be heard yelling.
“You should’ve died in Auschwitz.”
In the background the female driver can be seen waving and smiling, with the verbal abuse seemingly sparked by the rabbi making a call on his mobile phone.
