|Sultan, smiling about his "Jew-bashing"|
An Orthodox Jew was beaten up by a gang of teenagers who said the attack was a protest ‘about the Palestinians and the Jewish community’, a court has heard.Those poor Muslims, having to fight against Islamophobia and Israeli aggression! They were so distraught that they were forced to plan the attack ahead of time, traveling to a different neighborhood miles away to find random black-hatted Jews, and not being able to stop themselves from attacking the first one they saw.
Balawal Sultan, 18, Kesa Malik, 19, Hassnain Aliamin, 18, all from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and a 17-year-old boy have all admitted attacked the 41-year-old victim in nearby Gateshead.
Sultan, who had hours earlier sent a text message saying he was ‘going Jew bashing’, lay in wait with the other three behind a van before pouncing on the victim as he walked home to his family.
The victim screamed in fear as the pack chased him down the street, throwing wood at him, before tripping as he fled and being surrounded by the teenagers while stricken on the ground.
One of the thugs was threatening to kick him in the head when the victim was saved by a friend.
The attackers claimed they were only in the area looking for a new mosque but one of them admitted the planned attack was motivated by the dispute between Israel and Palestine.
The night before the attack, Sultan sent a text message saying ‘I’m going to go Jew bashing. Haha’.
Hours later, just after midnight on July 18, he and the others set about carrying out the threat. With Malik driving, they started looking for a victim.
The man they attacked had been at a Jewish study room nearby and was on his way home.
Bridie Smurthwaite, prosecuting, said: ‘The defendants had deliberately travelled to the area in Gateshead where there were members of the Jewish community with the particular intention of targeting someone from that community.
‘The Crown say the victim was targeted because he was wearing traditional Jewish attire, a black suit and white shirt and a black hat.
But it can't be simple Jew-hatred, no way. They "admitted" that they were motivated by Israeli actions, and it had nothing to do with hating Jews per se, of course not. They cannot be possibly be considered antisemitic, and how dare anyone accuse them of that heinous attribute instead of focusing on the real issue which is of course settlers and hasbara and Likud and all the other keywords that they learn to spout when they get caught that prove that deep down it has nothing to do with Jews.
Really, we must feel sorry for those poor, oppressed Muslims who are forced to travel in packs to attack the first Jews they seek out. They are so distraught over what is happening to their co-religionists in Khan Younis or somewhere (although not Aleppo or Sanaa or Baghdad.) They are not motivated by hate: it's only political! Anyone suggesting otherwise is probably an Islamophobe. Shame on you for thinking that. They are afraid, poor dears!
It is the "Zionists" of Gateshead and Golders Green who have all the power and money and influence. They are the ones who walk around haughtily in their Zionist black hats and Zionist beards without fear when they go to their heavily fortified Zionist synagogues and Zionist schools. The proof is that they don't feel the need to form gangs to attack Muslims. I'm surprised that I even have to explain this logic to you, it is so obvious.
