Wisconsin Man Arrested after Beating Two Men for Speaking Hebrew


Police in Madison, Wisconsin have arrested a man for punching two men who were speaking Hebrew, but he claimed he attacked them because they he thought they were speaking Spanish.

The attacker apparently doesn’t mind Israelis but perhaps has a grudge against Spanish-speaking folks. He also obviously has no language background if he cannot distinguish “shalom” from “buenos dias.”

Police said the man demanded that his victims speak English and then hit them in their faces, knocking one of them to the ground and leaving the other man with a black eye.
