Natan Epstein was walking down a street in Jerusalem this week when a passing Arab driver slowed down to curse at him. Epstein, who is used to such incidents, simply continued walking.

Just moments later, the situation escalated into a potentially fatal assault as the driver attempted to run him down, then jumped out of the car with a second Arab man and began viciously beating him.

Epstein managed to escape thanks to his dog, Mona. He spoke to Arutz Sheva’s Yoni Kempinski about the attack, and told him how he was saved at the last minute.

Epstein expressed frustration at government’s failure to prevent such attacks, and explained the steps he thinks must be taken to keep Jews safe in Israel’s capital.
