A series of rallies across the Arab world that were meant to draw two million participants for a so-called “Global March to Jerusalem,” fizzled on Friday to localized demonstrations in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. Even better, four American ultra-Orthodox rabbis from the extreme anti-Zionist Neturei Karta movement were beaten and verbally abused by local participants at the start of the event.
TIMES OF ISRAEL is reporting that four radical Orthodox rabbis affilated with the Israel-hating group, Naturei Karta, were attacked at the anti-Israel rally in Jordan yesterday.
FOUR JEWSwho have devoted their lives to the elimination of Israel, who have visited Iran and hugged Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during participation in a Holocaust Denial Conference were beaten during Land Day protests. They were beaten while demonstrating against Israel with people who wish to eliminate Israel.
If ever there were credentials that would guarantee acceptance by an anti-Israel mob, these Rabbis had it. But it did not matter to the rioters that these four Rabbis hated Israel as much as they did. It did not matter that they fought as enthusiastically as any Islamist fanatic or leftist radical against the Jewish state. What mattered to the demonstrators was that these Israel hating, holocaust denying, despot loving Rabbis were Jews. And so they were beaten by the very people they flew halfway round the world to support. Perhaps now they will understand that our enemies don’t wish to destroy Israel because it is full of Zionists, they wish to destroy Israel because it is full of Jews. But I doubt it.
YNET NEWS reported that while Israel’s northern and eastern borders remained unthreatened, and the rallies in neighboring countries were largely peaceful, there was violence at the Jordan event: Local media reported that They were rescued by other participants. Neturei Karta members also joined a rally in Lebanon.
