Some people say that one shouldn't be happy about someone else being beaten, so consider me sadly gleeful about that:
A leader of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Neturei Karta group, which is a fierce anti-Zionist organization, was beaten by a group of Muslim men in Holland.I have a word of advice to the good rabbi: he should urgently learn to pronounce "I am an anti-Zionist" in Arabic. And not in that curious mix of German and Yiddish:
Dutch police said that Joseph Antebi, 50, was attacked yesterday by Muslim men in Amsterdam. According to information obtained by the police, several Muslim men came over to his stopped car, pulled him out from his vehicle, beat him and spit on him. The suspects then fled from the scene.
There is one strange detail in the report I cannot avoid mentioning:
According to the police report, Antebi called the police and was able to provide cell phone images of the suspects to the police.An ultra-Orthodox rabbi carries a smartphone with a camera? And I was sure these contraptions were a strict no-no for these folks.
Oh, and while we are at it, another detail:
However, the group [Neturei Karta] remained defiant in defending radical Islamic militants. “This incident just shows how the Zionist are fanning the flames of anti-Semitism throughout the world,” the group said in a statement.I see there was a Zionist hand in this beating.
Do you know what? Consider me happy after all.
