An incident in Issawiya

There was a rather nasty inci­dent that got no atten­tion in the west press this week:

A 28-​year-​old worker in a mov­ing com­pany try­ing to reach Ma’aleh Adu­mim nar­rowly escaped a lynch attempt in the vil­lage of Issawiya in north­east Jerusalem on Sun­day after his GPS device mis­tak­enly directed him there.

Yes you read that right a Jew beaten in Jerusalem for being.…a JEW!. Some details:

The real­iza­tion that he was in hos­tile ter­ri­tory, he said, came “just as I made the turn, I fig­ured out that I made a mis­take, but I didn’t real­ize how big the issue was. This is Jerusalem. This is home.”

Imme­di­ately when I made the turn a 12-​year-​old boy started scream­ing ‘Jew, Jew’. Each time he called out dozens more peo­ple arrived.” That is when they started throw­ing rocks and cement blocks into the car.

How did he escape?

Nir then described how his life was saved: “Some­one came out of nowhere and tried to res­cue me from the peo­ple; there was scream­ing but he man­aged to get me to his house. I was still scared, I didn’t feel safe, and the peo­ple in the house said they needed to get me out of the vil­lage or they would also come under attack. empha­sis mine

Yup Arabs in a vil­lage out­side of Jerusalem are under threat for dar­ing to keep a Jew from being murdered.

Via Meryl Your­ish who asks the obvi­ous ques­tion:

Name a sin­gle inci­dent where a Pales­tin­ian made a wrong turn into a Jew­ish vil­lage and was stoned by a mob.

Oh. Wait. That never happened.

and believe me if it did the left would be scream­ing about it. Loudly!

There was a rather nasty incident that got no attention in the west press this week:

A 28-year-old worker in a moving company trying to reach Ma’aleh Adumim narrowly escaped a lynch attempt in the village of Issawiya in northeast Jerusalem on Sunday after his GPS device mistakenly directed him there.

Yes you read that right a Jew beaten in Jerusalem for being….a JEW!. Some details:

The realization that he was in hostile territory, he said, came “just as I made the turn, I figured out that I made a mistake, but I didn’t realize how big the issue was. This is Jerusalem. This is home.”

“Immediately when I made the turn a 12-year-old boy started screaming ‘Jew, Jew’. Each time he called out dozens more people arrived.” That is when they started throwing rocks and cement blocks into the car.

How did he escape?

Nir then described how his life was saved: “Someone came out of nowhere and tried to rescue me from the people; there was screaming but he managed to get me to his house. I was still scared, I didn’t feel safe, and the people in the house said they needed to get me out of the village or they would also come under attack. emphasis mine

Yup Arabs in a village outside of Jerusalem are under threat for daring to keep a Jew from being murdered.

Via Meryl Yourish who asks the obvious question:

Name a single incident where a Palestinian made a wrong turn into a Jewish village and was stoned by a mob.

Oh. Wait. That never happened.
