Thread: Jews Regularly Spit on Christians in Jerusalem

  1. Icon13 Jews Regularly Spit on Christians in Jerusalem

    Ultra-Orthodox young men curse and spit at Christian clergymen in the streets of Jerusalem's Old City as a matter of routine. In most cases the clergymen ignore the attacks, but sometimes they strike back. Last week the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court quashed the indictment against an Armenian priesthood student who had punched the man who spat at him.

    Johannes Martarsian was walking in the Old City in May 2008 when an young ultra-Orthodox Jew spat at him. Maratersian punched the spitter in the face, making him bleed, and was charged for assault. But Judge Dov Pollock, who unexpectedly annulled the indictment, wrote in his verdict that "putting the defendant on trial for a single blow at a man who spat at his face, after suffering the degradation of being spat on for years while walking around in his church robes is a fundamental contravention of the principles of justice and decency."

    "Needless to say, spitting toward the defendant when he was wearing the robe is a criminal offense," the judge said.

    When Narek Garabedian came to Israel to study in the Armenian Seminary in Jerusalem half a year ago, he did not expect the insults, curses and spitting he would be subjected to daily by ultra-Orthodox Jews in the streets of the Old City.

    "When I see an ultra-Orthodox man coming toward me in the street, I always ask myself if he will spit at me," says Narek, a Canadian Armenian, this week. About a month ago, on his way to buy groceries in the Old City, two ultra-Orthodox men spat at him. The spittle did not fall at his feet but on his person. Narek, a former football player, decided this time not to turn the other cheek.

    Ultra-orthodox also love to beat on women. Nothing new.

    I didn't realize the issue was that overt. Doesn't say much for their bigotry. They don't seem to be very good stewards of the Holy City.

    Aren't arabs regularly and habituatedly throw rocks over the Wall onto praying Jews? Guess, where's the habit of firing rockets into Israel is coming from?

    From the fact that the zionists have stolen their homes?

    Ultra-orthodox people of any persuasion tend to be dicks.

    Granted, I haven't heard of ultra-orthodox Quakers or Amish causing problems.
    "Chaos... isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them.
    And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.
    Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."

    But, Dasein, it's just a fringe element. Sound familiar.

    Most of Israelis are not Ultra-Orthodox.
