Shocking footage emerged on YouTube Saturday of Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem being hounded and abused by a mob of Arabs some of which are heard on the video to be laughing loudly.

In the video the Arab youths are seen kicking, shoving, hurling chunks of snow and shouting insults at two men. One of the Jewish men falls as he slips on stairs attempting to escape the mob and the hat of one of them is taken. The attackers are mostly hooded and wearing kaffiyehs.

Israel National News, which published the video, reports that “The attack apparently took place near Shechem Gate. The Jews were most likely on their way back from praying at the Kotel. Border Police who are usually stationed in the area are nowhere to be seen.”

Israeli officials have noted an increase in Arab violence and terror activity in Jerusalem in recent months.

The video of the Arab attack can be viewed below:

  • Perdoai-vos ó Hashem, eles não sabem o que fasem ?

  • They (Orthodox Jews) should be carrying a gun to kill these vermin (Palo) wankers! This shouldn’t be happening in The Jewish Homeland!! :)

  • Salomon Mizrahi

    Rav Meir Kahane, zl” was a prophet!
    Don´t wait for the police, organize your own selfdefense!

    • Where are the Israeli youth, why are they not out to defend and show thees parasites what democracy is, and living in a free society . Yes, form a local defense against these outbreaks. And fight them.

      • The real parasites are theseharedim who expect our soldiers to defend them while they don”t do eny service to the country. Usually its a gang of us israelis who are terorising arabs so dont be so naive and dont believe any video.

      • We need to pray for them as Jesus said, if those doing wrong here new our Lord they would be convicted and change, I prayed for them even tho they are the enemy, God please reveal your self to them beyond a shadow of doubt in Jesus name Amen! If after they know Him they still go against Him then God will deal with them as He will!

  • Was that a police car that went by? Not one car stopped? The Bronx in the 50″s? Queens, too.

  • Tone Lechtzier

    Shalom,
    it’s disgusting that passer buys do not come to their aid. This is Arab appreciation for being Israeli citizens? The solution is to deport all of them, far more extreme measures have been done to us. Why would Jews want to relocate in Israel when this is all too common?
    B”H ~ Blessings

  • If you listen carefully you can hear someone shouting “Itbach al yahud”, kill the Jew (at 0:54 playing time).

  • There were plenty of other people in the streets. Why did they not help these two men? This looks like Hitler youth attacking Jews in Germany and nobody stopped the thugs. Israelies should be helping each other no matter how religious or irreligious they are.

  • Just a bunch of Muslims emulating the sociopath Muhammad…
    He and Allah loved killing & humiliating Jews..
    All “good”Muslims try to do the same!

  • Are these the same Haredi Jews who have been spitting for years on Christians in Jerusalem? Are these the same Haredis who throw stones at women who they do not think properly dressed?

  • It is one thing when this sort of thing happens everywhere else. But, how is it possible that it happens in Israel and these dogs get away with it? Are we so intimidated by world opinion (which is and has always been a lost cause of us) that we allow this Arab filth to bully us in our own country and do nothing about it?

    How is it possible?

  • Fredric M. London

    Hersch, you should be ashamed of yourself (and obviously, you are). If you hate who you are so much, I feel very sorry for your family. No group is beyond criticism, but only a genuine anti-Semite would have no problem with this video.

  • Join the IDF instead of studying ancient myths

  • JOIN THE IDF instead of studying ancient documents

  • The Arab will always seek to attack the weak or undefended among us. This should not be a surprise to anyone. Fight back my people! Hurt the enemy so they might see the scars and remember the dangerous Jews. My family will fight!

  • The Orthodox Jews need to start pulling their weight for a change and start to contribute to the defence of Israel rather than simply sitting back and taking handouts.It is past time for them to get to work and to be a contributing members of Israeli society and the IDF.

  • This makes me sick, I’m praying–there is power in prayer CJ

  • I don’t like seeing anyone abused; especially Jews! Maybe the snow in Jerusalem made folks a little crazy, but that’s still no excuse for what we saw on the video. However, my biggest beef is with Algemeiner’s captions and headline writers. If they really equate snowballs and hat snatching with “terror,” they’re going to lose me as a reader. I won’t believe them when (G-d forbid) the real thing happens.

  • Not a single Jew around to help?@!

  • It appears that both the Army and Police had other things to do then patrol the streets. Of course Chasidim and Harudei Men are an target. As to them coming from Prayer. arabs do not care about jewish prayer at all. They used to drop rocks on them from the Wall above as they stood at the kotel in Prayer. Nothing has changed,just less reported or stopped these days.

  • Jerry Hersch, you are pathetic! Nothing but a self-hating Jew! If the modern day Hitler comes to call again, you will be on the list no doubt about it!

  • Which is more terrifying and shocking- a shower of snowballs or a shower of stones and spit by Haredi Jews ??

    • Jerry Hersch – I wish for this Arab mob to do that to you! then we will see what you write….

    • Jerry Hersch you are truly an abomination as expressed in the Old Testament. You are a pitifully despicable excuse for a Jew. I am assuming with your name that is what you purport to be. A pox on your house.

    • Both are reprehensive, but Jews do not wear suicide vests and blow up other Jews. The arabs kill Jews and they kill one another. Where were the other Jews in the street to fight back. This would never happen in Boro Park or Williamsburg without the attackers being “taken care of”. Yes not all Charedi are fighters but they should have come back with a small army of their fellow charedim and sent a strong message. This is supposed to be the Jewish State how could no one intervine? That is shocking and that is why we suffer.

  • What most of the world does not realize how big of an atrocity this is. These religious men have just come from praising God. No matter what you do or do not believe in these men spend their lives learning the Old Testament and doing good deeds. They are not in the army, they harm no one and wish no harm on anyone… This is like watching thugs attack nuns – it is repulsive and disgusting. These Arabs are Israeli citizens free to practice what ever religion they want in the Jewish State, being treated a whole lot better then any other Arab country and this is how the behave??? Outrageous, disgusting and shame on all of them!! I hope they are all found out and locked up!!!! Shame shame shame on them!!!!!

  • Reminds me of the Bronx in the early 1950s and those “nice” Irish-American toughs.
    But anybody can play -back in about 1947 a group of Spanish flamenco dancers and musicians were performing a benefit..Holocaust stories were coming out daily -Israel was not yet a fact.The Jewish audience was not appreciative..the performere carried on. When the performers left they were crying.
    This group had entertained the Spanish forces fighting Franco..toward the end they picked up guns..During the war they joined resistance groups in Europe.
    The ignorance of that Jewish audience is still vivid in my mind..just as is the picture of my mother confronting that rude insulting audience alone.

    • Jerry Hersh,
      You just gave yourself away. It’s obvious that you are a Jew hater but in your plaudits of Spanish resistance to Franco I would guess that you are also a Commie. But don’t the two go together?

      • Perhsps Gerry G you should study the Hitler support for Franco in men andarms -And study the history of the Spanish Blue Division that Franco sent to help Hitler on the Eastern Front..and the Blue Division and its activities regarding Jews.

  • כשמסתכלים בסרטון לא מקובל על הדעת את מה שקורה בשום אופן לא! הכנופיה

    הערבית תקפו את שני בחורים דתיים אחרי תפילה אצל כותל? כל העולם רואים

    חלישות באמצע ירושלים, בירת-מדינת-ישראל היהודית? איפה המשטרה? איפה

    חיילי-הגבול? מה פתאום–אין הגנה לשמור יהודים בבירת-ישראל!

    • I don’t really understand much Hebrew. But it is pathetic to see Jews bullied like this in the heart of what the our homeland.

  • CAN you imagine if JEWS were doing this to an Arab how there would be a WORLD UPROAR!?

  • This is in ISRAEL on the way back from the Kotel??! Where are the Police to protect its’ citizens?! Why do Arabs feel free to roam and beat Jews in the Middle of the Jewish Capital?! Where are OUR SOLDIERS protecting OUR people!??

    Robert Gates’ Memoir is a Jaw-Dropping Read (REVIEW)

    Former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates’s memoir follows the classic form, telling the story of his years at the Pentagon during the Bush and Obama administrations. He focuses on what he did and experienced personally as secretary, neither writing a broad policy treatise nor recounting the entire history of the administrations in which he served. In so doing, Gates provides penetrating insights about the inner workings of US national security decision-making. Had I been George W. Bush, I would [...]

    The Israel National soccer team could be facing a World Cup ban, and other soccer sanctions, unless it alleviates travel restrictions and increases field access for Palestinian players and coaches. The head of the Palestinian Football Association is pushing for international soccer’s governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), to issue a ban on Israel competing internationally, claiming Israel’s restrictive travel for Palestinians is equivalent to a form of oppression. “It’s not only the athletes,” Jibril Rajoub explains.

    JNS.org – While the national debate on “Obamacare” rages on past the recent March 31 sign-up deadline, bestselling Jewish author Dr. Joel Fuhrman says the “current disease care model of what we call ‘health care’ cannot possibly be sustained.” “There is simply not enough money available to support a system in which the lion’s share of expenditures is devoted to acute care, with virtually nothing being spent on preventive medicine, i.e. health care,” Fuhrman says in an interview. “To make [...]

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]
