YouTube video shows Arab mob nearly lynch unarmed Jewish settler; media almost completely silent on the incident
A shocking video uploaded to YouTube at the weekend shows a mob of young Palestinian Arab men enthusiastically trying to lynch a lone Jewish man somewhere in Samaria (the so-called “West Bank”).
The video is filmed by someone in the Arab mob. In it, at least a dozen men can be seen running toward an unarmed religious Jew with sticks and stones. At least two young Arabs are seen hurling stones at the Jewish man from close range, while another three or four Arabs kick and beat the victim, who by this time is on the ground.
The victim is saved by a handful of fellow Jews who rush to the scene and begin throwing stones at the attackers.
The video, which can be seen here, was not reported on by the mainstream media, the same media that has in the past made headline news out of similar videos purporting to show Jewish violence against Palestinian Arabs.
In other violence, an Arab man stabbed and lightly wounded an Israeli security guard at the entrance to the Jewish town of Ma’aleh Adumim on the eastern outskirts of Jerusalem on Saturday.
The attacker managed to escape into one of the nearby Arab villages.
Hundreds of local Arab men enter Ma’aleh Adumim every day for work, so it is not uncommon for them to congregate at the entrance to the Jewish town.
