‘An Arab is the son of a prostitute, a Jew is a (blessed) soul’ — Jerusalem mob chants

Israel/Palestine
on 23 Comments

From Ofer Neiman, a short video of a mob in Jerusalem last night. I don’t know what occasioned this outburst (beyond the fact that such racism is the inevitable expression of fervent nationalism). From the facebook description by Avinoam Oltchik:

Jerusalem, night between 24-25 Feb 2013. Young Israeli youth looking for the next lynch victim while chanting “A jew is a soul, an arab is a son of a whore”, scattered by police. 0:08-0:10 : “Did you hear what they did to the Arab guy? they screwed him with beatings”

I’d rather not know what happened before they started running from Zion Square towards this direction nor what would have happen if they hadn’t been stopped. — ‎at ‎ירושלים‎.‎

    The most important aspect of a society in ethical breakdown such as Israel is that the process continues to iterate . They can’t say it stops here at the level of February 2013. It will continue to degenerate. There is no news broadcast than can turn things around. The seeds of this were planted a long time ago and Israel will reap the PR harvest.

    A very interesting aspect of the whole mess is that US Judaism has not gone through 40 years of this process so US Jews. This means that it will become increasingly clear that US Jews don’t think like their Israeli cousins any more.

      seafoid – “it will become increasingly clear that US Jews don’t think like their Israeli cousins any more.”

      Clear from what, exactly? Don’t they get the same exact indoctrination in all their “community centers” and synagogues and even normal neighborhood schools? In fact, perhaps worse, as the ultimate source of much Zionist savagery in Palestine is coming from NY, NJ etc.

        They don’t have TV or news media or Hebrew like the Israelis do. Huge difference. Even if they get full top ups of indoctrination in the synagogue the world outside is not the bot bubble.

        And many will talk to people who are not botulated.

    Phil, again the Israeli Jews have lynched an Arab, this time in Tel Aviv. About 20 teens left an Arab street cleaner hospitalized. See it here. Subject matter for a post?

      This should be front page.

      The victim was lucky to be alive at the end.

      Actually, it seems the Jerusalem Jews were celebrating the beating of the Arab man in Tel Aviv. Maybe a post is in order consolidating both stories.

    This, in the streets, similar in custody. Zionism must be corrected from outside because it is poisoned from inside.

    Judaism, in some guises, used to be rather poisoned as against gentiles (read, for instance, “Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of my Hasidic Roots” by Deborah Feldman), and that could be understood — in whole or in part — as the reaction of a persecuted people, but this injection of the hatreds and despisals of a “bottom dog” into a people who have now — at least inside Israel and perhaps in Washington, DC — become “top dogs” is too much to bear willingly.

      As MJR says:

      And so they injected the very last thing we needed into American politics in the 21st century. That is the ugliest bacillus of the 19th and 20th: what used to be called, “the Jewish question.” This is not fun and games. This is ugly and dangerous and harms both the United States and Israel which ends up being associated with the deceitful partisan attacks made in its name. The Times deserves credit for exposing it.

    When I hear that the rabbis of Temple Beth Emmanue disagree, I will imagine that Americans are not in lockstep with their Israeli counterparts.

    funny that assault, HB. investigators are looking into whether it was nationalistically motivated. huh. israeli jews assualting an israeli arab, and it was motivated by nationalism.

      Don’t you understand what nationalism is? It’s based on racial groupings. The KKK lynched Black Americans – same shit, different era.

        that was my poor attemmpt at sarcasm, couchT. i was commenting on the zionists’ inability to acknowledge the existence of racism in the maximalist state even in the face of something as blatant as this attack. if an israeli arab attacked an israeli jew while shouting ‘death to [insert anti-semitic pejorative here]’, i’ll assume that the attack would not have been described as being ‘nationalistically motivated’.

        couchtripper – – You mean delusions of “racial groupings”. The scores of thousands of black Ethiopian “Jews” in Israel obviously are not of the same “race” as Bibi Netanyahu.

        couchT, more racially, er, i mean ‘nationally’ motivated attacks on arabs by jews.

        Four Tiberias residents were arrested for allegedly attacking an Arab citizen on one of the shores of the Kinneret on Saturday. According to police suspicion, the attack of Nimer Sharkawi, 43, was nationally motivated.

        After the arrests, it was discovered that two of the suspects were involved in an attack on an Arab municipality worker in Tel Aviv last week.

    Incidents of Antisemitism worldwide pale into insignificance compared to what the Arabs suffer at Jewish hands in Israel and Palestine on a daily basis.

    Jewish NY assemblyman stands by his black-face Purim costume
    Democratic assemblyman Dov Hikind says he meant no offense when he wore black-face makeup, an Afro wig, and a basketball jersey to a costume party.

    Veteran New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind says he meant no offense when he wore blackface makeup, an Afro wig, and a basketball jersey to a party he recently held at his home for the Jewish holiday of Purim.

    Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind told CBS Newsradio 880 in New York that it “never crossed his mind” that it might be offensive and and doesn’t regret the costume he wore.

    A spokesman said Monday that Hikind, whose district in Brooklyn is home to one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities outside Israel, wasn’t immediately available for comment. But he says Hikind isn’t trying to avoid the issue.

    There was no immediate comment from the Assembly’s majority.

      Dov Hikind Trying To Block Israel’s Extradition Of Yitzchak Shuchat To Brooklyn

      New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind Says he has been in contact with Israel’s “Attorney General” in an attempt to block the High Court of Justice ordered extradition of Yitzchak Shuchat, who is wanted for a beating a Black honors student in Crown Heights three years ago and who is charged with a hate crime. Shuchat fled to Israel.

      New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind Says he has been in contact with Israel’s “Attorney General” in an attempt to block the High Court of Justice ordered extradition of Yitzchak Shuchat, who is wanted for allegedly beating a Black honors student in Crown Heights three years ago, and who is charged with a hate crime. Shuchat fled to Israel and was indicted in absentia.

      But Hikind, whose district is heavily haredi and who is himself Orthodox, says more than just that.

      On his radio show last night he said that he met week with defense attorney Alan Dershowitz, who Hikind says is working on blocking Shuchat’s extradition, and with Chabad’s offical prison missionary arm, the Florida-based Alef Institute, which is trying to do the same thing.

      That means a sitting New York State Assemblyman who has sworn to uphold the laws of the State of New York, an officer of the court who has similarly sworn, and a Chabad organization given special entree to prisons in part on the condition of upholding US laws, are all involved in trying to get a foreign country to not extradite a wanted man to the US to stand trial.

      Here’s the audio clip from last night’s Dov Hikind show where Hikind makes these shocking statements. It runs for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Please left click the gray bar to listen or right click to download (or open in a new tab or window):

        Dov Hikund on YouTube defending Shuchat.

        LOL @ “its a complicated story”

        And of course Dershowitz is involved.

        Disgusting.

        Just like with Pollard.

        @ Cliff
        Dov even says in the audio he, Derhshie, and a specified Jewish organization are not only trying to stop the extradition of the hate crime fugitive from Israel, but also working hard to free the traitor Pollard.

        So he can live free and easy in Israel too.

        Disgusting. We sure are not in Kansas anymore.

    Maybe one day you will learn Arabic Philip, so you can report on some of things said by the “other” side, if they let you.
