Two yeshiva students say they feared for their lives... and it turns out they're Americans
Two Haredim who were attacked by an Arab mob during the snowstorm last Thursday say that they feared that they would be lynched. And it turns out they're Americans
Speaking to Arutz Sheva Monday, two American yeshiva students
who were viciously attacked last Thursday by a gang of dozens of Arab
youths said that they feared for their lives. According to the two, the
fact that they were “only” attacked with snowballs was just a lucky
circumstance. Without the snow, they said, the Arabs might have used
rocks, possibly killing them.
Speaking in the interview, the two said
that they truly feared they would not survive the incident. “We went to
pray at the Kotel and on our way back, we were suddenly attacked by
dozens of Arabs,” they said. “The Arabs tried to lynch us, they were
throwing snowballs and other objects and yelling 'death to the Jews' in
Arabic. We felt we were in real danger.”
Police said they were investigating
whether the incident was nationalistic in nature, or just a “prank,” a
police spokesperson said.
The question that ought to be asked here is where were the police, who supposedly patrol around the Old City's perimeter at all times.
