New shocking violence against Jewish worshippers was caught on video in Jerusalem, this time showing a Palestinian man kicking a religious Jew pushing a baby stroller.
The kick occurs in the first seconds of the video as the crowd shouts "Allahu akbar":
Groups of Palestinians positioned in the Old City’s alleys outside the Western Wall have been verbally and physically harassing Jews walking to and from the Jewish holy site, with mobs shouting "Allahu akbar" and spitting and throwing objects at those arriving for prayers during the weeklong Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
Israel supporters were quick to blast the kick of the dad — still wearing his traditional prayer shawl — with one observer likening it to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany:
Another video posted online Monday showed how a group of women screaming “Allahu akbar” chased a father and his two young sons, reducing one of the little boys to tears.
A group of Palestinian men stood alongside the women, appearing to encourage their harassment of the Jewish family, who had just completed holiday prayers at the Western Wall.
Israeli journalist and educator Yishai Fleisher, who witnessed Monday’s incident, told TheBlaze that he saw “a mob of jihadists doing the whole Allahu akbar assault.”
Fleisher described it as a media production with cameras positioned alongside the Muslim group to record moments of conflict.
“These Allahu akbar ladies are surrounded by various cameras to create a story of scared, intimidated Jews and make sure Jews are scared in the Old City. This whole thing is a machine of propaganda to create fear and deter Jews from feeling comfortable in Jerusalem,” Fleisher said.
Palestinian social media groups have been sharing these and other videos showing their intimidation of Jews in Jerusalem.
One of the Jewish traditions of Sukkot is to make pilgrimage to Jerusalem and pray at the Western Wall, which sits just under the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism. Jewish and Christian visitors to the Temple Mount are regularly harassed by Palestinians paid to accost the non-Muslim visitors to the site.
