Following a disturbing video that showed a Muslim mob taunting a hassidic Jewish father and his terrified sons, a second video has emerged showing Muslim humiliation of a Jewish father as he walks through the alleyways of Jerusalem's Old City. The somewhat blurry video shows at least two Jews carrying Sukkot lulav packages and was shot during the Sukkot holiday.
The video shows an Arab man forcefully kicking a man in haredi garb in the hip, as the man was pushing a baby stroller. The attack is documented in the initial seconds of the video.
The spokesman for the Jerusalem Police confirmed to Arutz Sheva that the suspected attacker was arrested Wednesday.
It has been circulating on social networks and appears to have been filmed and uploaded by Arabs on the first or second day of the Sukkot holiday. The video has received over 170,000 views – a huge number in Israeli terms.
A previously published video, taken Monday morning, on the first day of the Jewish festival Sukkot, shows mobs of Muslims harassing Jews on their way to pray at the Kotel (Western Wall).
The footage shows one terrified young boy crying to his dad "abba abba!" as the mob converges on them.
Many viewers have remarked that the footage is reminiscent of scenes in which Germans taunted Jews in the streets of 1930s Germany. And yet, it is from the Jewish state, which was supposedly established precisely to make scenes like this impossible.
