Anti-Zionist Rabbi Blames Israel for Attack by Muslim

A car almost hits a rabbi in Amsterdam. He is furious at the driver, a Muslim, who then attacks the man, a rabbi. Who is at fault? Israel. Why? Well, the rabbi, a former Israeli, is an anti-Zionist.

An anti-Zionist rabbi said he was attacked in Amsterdam because of Israel, but police maintain that the incident simply was an argument over an “almost” traffic accident.”

The facts of the story are clear, but it takes a very open mind, if not a deranged one, to understand the interpretation.

A car almost hit a pedestrian, who was so angry at the near mishap that he snapped a picture of the driver who had supposedly stopped his car in order to threaten to do to him what he didn’t do by hitting him with his car.

The motorist then supposedly ran after the man and attacked him, who apparently was not happy with the idea that he already had escaped injury by not being run over by the car. The victim was a rabbi and dressed in traditional Haredi gear. For that reason or for another, the driver, a Muslim, reportedly hurled hate insults at him and then attacked him after a chase..

The police said the whole affair was not an anti-Semitic attack, while the rabbi drew the obvious conclusion that Israel is to blame for the attack.

Israel?

Of course, but you have to understand Neturei Karta to follow the reasoning.

The rabbi is named Joseph Antebi, and just to make the story stranger than fiction, he is an Israel living in Holland, where he is not contaminated by a Zionist state. He prefers anti-Zionists like himself.

And perhaps like the Muslim who attacked him.

The driver-attacker “had relatively dark skin and didn’t look very Dutch, or at least didn’t look like his family has been living in Holland for centuries,” Antebi told the JTA.

He claimed that the driver, according to the rabbi, stopped the car and threatened to hit him. Antebi pulled out his cell phone to photograph the Muslim, perhaps for nostalgia to remember he is not the only one who hates others because of their race, religion or citizenship.

The good rabbi calls himself a “Palestinian Jew,” JTA reported.

But he really loves his brethren. He said that the attacker “shouted negative things about my religion and about my people.”

And that is why Israel is to blame.

You see, people hate Jews because Israel is such an awful country.

“People hear about the atrocities, the way the Zionist state is treating the nations around them, and they are angry about it,” Antebi told JTA. “I’m not surprised he did what he did, it’s human behavior. The one to blame is the Zionist state, which is doing a lot of bad things to people.”

Now we know that Antebi sympathizes with his attacker, apparently a fellow anti-Zionist.

His account of the incident is a bit much to believe. First of all, if the driver almost hit him, maybe, just maybe, Antebi was crossing the street without looking past his cell phone?

Not only did the driver supposedly stop his car, get out and shout at Antebi, the rabbi also claims the “dark-skinned” driver then ran after him when he asked a fishmonger to call the police. While the fishmonger refused, the driver attacked Antebi, who ended up in the hospital, where he was released after being treated for minor injuries.

Can you see this scene? A driver leaves his car in the street to run after an innocent Jew in order to attack him?

A spokesperson for the Amsterdam police told JTA police are investigating but are not certain the attack was anti-Semitic. “Currently, we are assuming it is an argument about traffic that got out of hand,” she said.

Neturei Karta blamed the attack on the “Zionist evil, which causes anti-Semitism all around the world, until even those who are truly observant and faithful Jews are liable to fall victim, and pay a high price for the Zionists’ sins.”

Antebi and his anti-Zionist cult know God’s system for reward and punishment.

But did it ever come to their minds, what is left of them, that maybe God is trying to tell something else to an anti-Zionist Israeli who is attacked by a Muslim who hates Jews?

Jewish Press blogger Paula Stern wrote, “The Muslim was being honest enough to know that there is no real difference between a Zionist and a Jew. The rabbi, however, remains stupidly blind to this simple fact.”

    I hear Neturei Karta has been expelled from the Purblind Imbeciles Society for making it into a laughing stock.

    Sad to say, Anything can become a Rabbi today. Afraid to ask this so called Rabbi what he thinks about Hitler.

    Samir and Ah…we already know you know no reading no writing…do you need help getting your stuck fingers from the key board?….you're waisting away…

  13. Hana Salama says:

    Stephanie…all we get is that YOU don't get it. I gather you've never visited Israel, so all your nonsense about killing Palestinians kids wouldn't surface. Thousand of sick Palestinians kids are treated in Israeli hospitals, free of charge , something an Israeli kid doesn't get. The Arab lies are penetrating ignorant and hateful minds like yours who pretend to care about humans, yet don't voice their rage about thousands murdered in Syria, and Egypt, because Israel is not involved. Hypocrisy is the name of your game, because true Christians know who's to really blame!
