It calls to mind the far more horrific Haredi mob violence against Swedish human rights worker, Tove Johansson’s as the IDF looked on:
A 19-year old Swedish [female] human rights worker had her cheekbone broken by a Jewish [Haredi man] in Hebron today …
The soldiers, who were standing at the checkpoint just a few feet behind the HRWs, looked on as they were being attacked …
Tove Johansson from Stockholm walked through the Tel Rumeida checkpoint with a small group of human rights workers (HRWs) to accompany Palestinian schoolchildren to their homes. They were confronted by about 100 Jewish extremists in small groups. They started chanting in Hebrew “We killed Jesus, we’ll kill you too!” — a refrain the settlers had been repeating to internationals in Tel Rumeida all day.
After about thirty seconds of waiting, a small group of very aggressive male Jewish extremists surrounded the international volunteers and began spitting at them, so much so that the internationals described it as “like rain.” Then men from the back of the crowd began jumping up and spitting, while others from the back and side of the crowd kicked the volunteers.
The soldiers, who were standing at the checkpoint just a few feet behind the HRWs, looked on as they were being attacked.
One settler then hit Tove on the left side of her face with an empty bottle, breaking it on her face and leaving her with a broken cheekbone. She immediately fell to the ground and the group of Jewish extremists who were watching began to clap, cheer, and chant. The soldiers, who had only watched until this point, then came forward and motioned at the settlers, in a manner which the internationals described as “ok… that’s enough guys.”
The extremists, however, were allowed to stay in the area and continued watching and clapping as the HRWs tried to stop the flow of blood from the young woman’s face. Some, who were coming down the hill even tried to take photos of themselves next to her bleeding face, giving the camera a “thumbs-up” sign.
… As well as a broken cheekbone Tove has a fractured skull and damage to her eye muscles.
There’s a dynamic here that’s not being discussed. These violent, hate-filled, Judeo-supremacist Haredi are literally viewed as royalty by ‘lesser Jews’ such as those who cannot observe all the traditions because they have jobs, serve in the IDF, etc. This very real hierarchy has to be recognized to have any real understanding of what’s going on.
