France: Waitress assaulted for serving alcohol during.....Ramadan

(Nice)  2 Arabic speaking men assaulted a Waitress in the France city of Nice for serving Alcohol during Ramadan:

The waitress, a French 30-year-old of Tunisian origin, said she was serving drinks at Monday lunch on the terrace of the Vitis Café on Nice’s rue Lamartine, near the rue d’Anglais, when two men started haranguing her, insulting the young woman because she was serving alcoholic beverages to customers.
“I was all alone in the bar when two passers-by suddenly appeared. They pointed to the bottles of alcohol behind the bar, then one of them told me in Arabic: ‘You should be ashamed of yourself serving alcohol in the Ramadan period.’
The waitress said one of the two men then shouted: 
“If I was God, I would have hung you.”
Unfazed by his threatening behaviour, the waitress shot back:
 “You’re not God to judge me.”
The men launched into a tirade, calling her a “dirty whore” and left the cafe in a hurry. A few seconds later, however, the venue's CCTV footage reportedly shows the two men turn round abruptly and one of them rush towards her and violently slap the waitress in the face, knocking her to the floor.
“The whole scene was recorded by the security cameras that I transferred to the police,” said the bar’s owner.
