Mugged by reality – Israel hating Rabbi, beaten up by Muslims in Amsterdam
The leader of the Jewish group Neturei Karta, who believe amongst other things, that the State of Israel is illegitimate because it was not set up by the Moschiach, or Jewish Messiah, got beaten up recently in Amsterdam.
Now in general, Jews getting beaten up by Muslims in Amsterdam, a city that was for centuries, and especially before the arrival of Islam, considered as a city of refuge for European Jews, is not good news. However, it is highly appropriate that Islamic violence, which is growing in the Netherlands, has found a member of the profoundly disgusting Neturei Karta group. Now I have no problem with them having the belief that Israel shouldn’t have been created except by the Moshiach, but I don’t agree with them and think that politically they have gone too far. Where I and many others do have a problem is with Neturei Karta hobnobbing with some pretty nasty Islamic dictators such as Iran’s former President Ahmedinejad, in their deranged quest to de-legitimise the State of Israel.
It is ironic that a member of this most Islamo-pandering of Jewish groups should be attacked in this way. All the Neturei Karta appeasement of Islamic regimes, all their expressed friendship with them, all their burning hatred for the State of Israel means nothing in the real world of the Amsterdam street. No matter how much Neturei Karta bow and scrape to Islamic groups and causes, it didn’t exempt them from attack by Muslims.
The website ‘Your Jewish News’ said:
“Dutch police said that Joseph Antebi, 50, was attacked yesterday by Muslim men in Amsterdam. According to information obtained by the police, several Muslim men came over to his stopped car, pulled him out from his vehicle, beat him and spit on him. The suspects then fled from the scene.
The rabbi begged passersby for help, but his pleas were ignored.
According to the police report, Antebi called the police and was able to provide cell phone images of the suspects to the police. “Rabbi Antebi is in the hospital and in stable condition. Antebi is suffering from severe pain, nausea and vomiting. He is also suffering from internal bleeding,” according to a statement released by Neturei Karta.”
I hope Rabbi Antebi fully recovers, not only because it would be wrong to wish harm, even on those with whom we peacefully disagree, but also I want him to recover so he can learn from his experience. The lesson Rabbi Antebi should learn, is that there is no future, or freedom, for Jews under Islam, no matter how much Jews abase themselves before Islamic rulers or Islamic countries. There is freedom for Jews in Israel but not in either the Islamic world or those areas of the non-Islamic world that have been colonised by Muslims.
I’d like to think that this attack was a case of ‘a burned hand teaches best’ when it comes to Rabbi Antebi’s attitude to the world of Islam and why there is a need for a Jewish state, but sadly these clowns are still playing the court jester to cruel Islamic tyrants. Predictably, Neturei Karta blamed this attack on the state of Israel and hoping that Neturei Karta will have been suitably ‘mugged by reality,’ and would reconsider their views on Israel and the Islamic world, will sadly have to wait.
Your Jewish News added:
“However, the group remained defiant in defending radical Islamic militants. “This incident just shows how the Zionist are fanning the flames of anti-Semitism throughout the world,” the group said in a statement. “
Neturei Karta have got it all wrong in their statement to the news outlet. it is not Zionism or the State of Israel that is ‘fanning the flames of anti-Semitism’, it is the actions of Muslims and Islamic nations that are doing that. Islamic anti-Semitism is not something that magically sprung into life when the State of Israel was re-created by the United Nations in 1948, it is something that has been a part of Islam for many hundreds of years prior to Israel being reborn.
Jew-hatred runs through Islam like the name of a town in a stick of seaside rock. It is long past time that groups like Neturei Karta and their equally deluded anti-Zionist counterparts among Leftist Progressive Jews, woke up and smelled the coffee. Islam is an ideology that is often murderously opposed to differing beliefs, and it is about time that more people, both Jew and non-Jew, started to realise that.
