Last night, five American Yeshiva students made a wrong turn and entered into the PA-controlled area of Hebron. At which point the savage Arabs of Hebron tried to lynch them, simply because they were Jews.
At least two of the Americans were injured and their car was completely torched.
But one Arab man, Faiz Abu-Hamadya (51) stood apart from his neighbors and saved the Jews, bringing them into his home until Israeli security forces could extricate them.
That man deserves all our praise.
He is nothing less than a Tzaddik (righteous person) in Sodom.
Faiz Abu-Hamadya gave an interview in Makor Rishon, and these are the details of what happened:
He heard screams and went outside and yelled to the five to run to his house. When they got to his house he gave them water, called the police and sent one of his sons to run to the army post and get the army.
He speaks a few words in Hebrew, enough to calm them down. He works with Jews in Be’er Sheva.
When asked if he wasn’t afraid the mob would attack his house, he said he did the humanitarian thing, and what was done to the five was evil. He added, we have to live together, so that everyone has work and that everyone can live as they should.
