Six Arabs were arrested this weekend in connection with a widely publicized attack on two Ultra Orthodox Jews on January 10th.

The two Jews were walking out of the Old City of Jerusalem through the Shechem Gate when they were ambushed by a group of Arabs who assaulted them, threw snow at them, and generally ridiculing them with shouts of “Allahu Akbar.”

The arrest of the six suspects 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 launching an investigation into the attack, and the victims themselves did not lodge an official complaint, explaining that they felt the complaint would not be useful. Public pressure, generated especially through social media, motivated the police to investigate the incident and they have now announced that all the assailants have been apprehended.

One of the victims related 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.”

Watch the video of the attack below:

  • what must change are the rules of engagement. Arabs no longer even respect soldiers because they know that if the soldiers act in a way some socialist lawyer or judge feels “inappropriate” he (or she) will go to jail. it’s a disgrace that costs lives not just dignity (as in this case).

    Israel is not interested in ending these types of attacks. This is because there is no shame for an Arab to go to jail and he might not even mind it all that much. I mean, what kind of life does he have in reality when the highlight of his day is to cowardly attack Jews who are not trained to defend themselves? No, what should be done to these ‘youths’ is to take them into a courtyard, strip them down and whip them on their naked torsos. Then let them go home to their families and show off their welts. Only then will the perah Adam come to truly understand what the phrase ‘Hadayim yedai Esav’ really means. Unfortunately the Israeli Government doesn’t even understand it. As an alternative, you can simply piss on them.
