Six Arabs were arrested this weekend in connection with the widely publicized attack of two Ultra Orthodox youths by a group of Arab thugs on January 10th.

The two Jews were walking out of Old City through the Shechem (Damascus) Gate when they were ambushed by a group of Arabs who physically assaulted them, as well as taking their streimels (hats), smashing them with snow, generally ridiculing them, all the while shouting “Allahu Akbar”, as they filmed the humiliating attack.

The arrest of the six follows the earlier arrest of another three participants in the attack. The remand of the first three has been extended by four days.

The police were initially hesitant about investigating the attack, and the victims themselves did not lodge an official complaint, explaining they felt the complaint would not be useful. Public pressure, generated especially through the social media, motivated the police to investigate the incident, and they have now announced that all assailants have been apprehended.

One of the victims told of what he experienced: “Dozens of Arabs surrounded us and began to throw snow at us. They played with our hats, knocked them down, punched us and kicked us in the face and on the back. We were two against tens, and could do nothing. I was sure I was not going to survive. I was drenched from the snow, and surrounded by Arabs, and no one helped.”

  1. Yes, put them in Israel's 5 star hotel jail with gourmet kosher for Muslims food, new clothes, TV, free University courses, videos, entertainment and monthly USA dollar salaries, cell phones with unlimited calls and open contact with other Arab prisoners to learn more and bigger/complicated atrocities to perform as soon as they pass through the jail’s revolving door to live in the community again.

  2. …And no one helped. Shame on everyone who walked or drove past and did nothing. There is no excuse for watching something like that and not trying to assist. Thank goodness there was an outcry on social media! (Check my Facebook entry about it, I was LIVID!)
