Three Muslims arrested for anti-Semitic attack in Sydney, one victim in critical conditionThree Muslims have been arrested in an anti-Semitic attack on a group of five Jews headed home from dinner in a suburb of Sydney, Australia on Friday night.
Let's go to the videotape.
Here are more details.
St Vincent's Hospital spokesman David Faktor, a member of the Bondi Jewish community, told the Sydney Morning Herald that the victims told him the attack was unprovoked and racially motivated.
He said the victims were members of a family, and that they did not know their attackers or do anything to incite the violence. He said the male victims were wearing skullcaps and told him the attack felt like it went for about 15 minutes.
''Any kind of serious unprovoked attack is of great concern but the fact it was racially motivated is all the more concerning,'' Faktor said.
''It is extremely shocking that an attack like this could happen in Australia, let alone in Bondi being such a multicultural area.''
Faktor said the families of the victims are "very upset" and cannot understand why people would want to hurt them.
Beach Road Hotel licensee Ben Pearce told the Morning Herald that four bouncers and two managers from the hotel jumped into the brawl in an effort to break it up and were able to restrain a couple of the attackers before the police arrived.
''The guys did the best they could to grab as many of [the attackers] as possible,'' Pearce said. ''The fact that it had that extra component [was racially motivated] makes it even more ugly. 'If it ever happened again we'd do the same to try and help.''Sounds like these people were lucky to escape alive.
Why would they want to hurt you? Because they're Muslims and you're Jews. Who needs any other reason?
UPDATE 9:18 AM EASTERN TIME
For the record, I got that the attackers were Muslims from the header on the video, which reads "Three Muslims arrested over anti-Semitic attack."
Jihad Watch points out:
True to form, the mainstream media doesn't mention the identity of the perpetrators, but that in itself is a clue as to who they were: if the attackers had been neo-Nazis, the Herald would have had no trouble saying that. Only when it comes to Muslims do "brawls" and "bombings" and "violence" just happen by themselves, with no clear perp. Also, the mention of the facts that the attack was "racially motivated" and in a "multicultural area" makes clear the identity of these "youths" (a common mainstream media term for violent young Muslims in any case).
But why the coverup? Why must we read tea leaves when it comes to Muslim violence? The mainstream media is doing a grave disservice to the public by reporting stories in this way, rendering them ignorant and complacent in the face of a real threat.Indeed.
