Watch: Terrified Jewish Children Hounded by Muslim Mob
A hassidic child cries, clinging to his father’s hand as an angry mob hounds them, hurling anti-Semitic abuse.
Scenes not from Europe in the early twentieth century, but from the streets of Jerusalem’s Old City on Sukkot, 2015.
The above video was taken Monday morning, on the first day of the Jewish festival Sukkot, and shows mobs of Muslims harassing Jews on their way to pray at the Kotel (Western Wall).
The footage shows one terrified young boy crying to his dad “abba abba!” as the mob converges on them.
No one was injured in the incident – as Islamist activists are usually careful to avoid open violence in front of cameras or nearby police – but it underlines the campaign of unbearable harassment faced by Jewish Jerusalemites at the hands of their Arab neighbors, entirely unrelated to the issue of the Temple Mount.
