WATCH: Arabs Almost Lynch Jew Next To Kever Shmuel Hanavi, 5 Arrested


A group of Arabs violently attacked a Jew holding an Israeli flag near Kever Shmuel Hanavi on Friday afternoon.

A video of the incident that spread on social media shows a number of Arabs attacking two Jews, one of whom fell to the ground and was violently beaten.

Border Police officers who quickly arrived at the scene were also attacked before dispersing the crowd.

On Motzei Shabbos, the police announced that they arrested five Arabs who allegedly took part in the violence.

Many public figures commented on the video, including opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu, who said: “National honor is not a luxury, and its absence will cost lives. The attempted lynch at Kever Shmuel Hanavi is shocking – dozens of Arabs violently attacking a young Jewish man after he waved an Israeli flag, kicking and punching him all over his body as he’s lying on the sidewalk – and all this in front of police officers.”

  1. This attack has crossed a red line & quite simply has gone just too far. At קבר שמואל הנביא is simply too shocking & despicable for words, and these 5 savages must be sentenced to death no questions asked, in addition to burning Palestinian flags no questions asked

  2. Very painful to see that Yidden in Eretz Yisrael act as if Moshiach is here already. He’s not. Even if you are in Eretz Yisrael you are still in galut. Waving a flag at an Arab mob might not be the wisest thing to do when you are in galut.

  3. It’s crazy that Jew was attacked in the center of the Jewish neighborhood of Jerusalem for holding an Israeli flag! To the commenter “sickofidiots” he wasn’t waving the flag at them, he was pointing it at them because he wanted to use it to defend himself from a mob that was already chasing him. Are you saying he can’t wave an Israeli flag in Israel because we are in galus?! I am sick of idiots like you.

  4. @philosopher, you’re so smart. I wish I was as smart as you are. Take a flag in your hand and go next to a group of bloodthirsty arabs. Let me know how that turned out.

  5. a גוי who strikes a Yid is חייב מיתה according to halacha

    the IL police should have immediately shot these בני ישמעאל dead upon arrival

  6. רמב”ם הלכות מלכים ומלחמותיהם פרק י’ הלכה ו’: וגוי שהכה את ישראל אפי’ חבל בו אע”פ שהוא חייב מיתה אינו נהרג. עכ”ל, וכתב מרן בכ”מ שם א”ר חנינא וכו’ וסובר רבינו שאע”פ שחייב מיתה לשמים אינו נהרג

  7. chatzkal thanks for your sources backing me up, although I would hope it’s obvious to every schoolchild that Baby Squirrel was spouting nonsense, as there’s no mention in tanach, Mishna or gemorah or a goy being killed for this (Moshe and the Mitzri which is a unique case.)

    And to apply it to the Israeli police nowadays is just Kahanism
