As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
An Israeli Arab man dressed in women’s clothing was attacked and beaten during a day outing to the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Shechem.
Arutz Sheva reported that eyewitnesses said a group of women demanded he leave the city, but he continued walking toward’s the town center. A few minutes later, hundreds of local residents surrounded the cross-dressed man shouting curses and epithets and threatening to kill him. At one point, a group of youths approached him and started hitting him, saying that they had to “destroy his kind before they start multiplying.”
The website said that by the time Palestinian Authority police arrived, the man was surrounded the visitor and the situation had nearly reached riot proportions. Locals called the man an affront to the honor and dignity of Arab men.
Eventually, the man was taken to a police station, and from there hurtled away to a road outside the city – where he was dropped off, along with orders to stay out of Shechem.
Shechem city officials told the website,“residents of Shechem are not used to this kind of behavior, which is shameful. This individual does not represent Palestinian society, but himself. He was very inconsiderate of the feelings of local residents.”
