Riots In Akko on Yom Kippur

Posted by Atilla89 on October 14, 2008

I have a major deadline coming up so I won’t be posting for a while. I’m just going to briefly comment on the Akko riots. Firstly, it was a disgrace on both parts. Regardless of whether the Arab driver was drinking and blasting loud music as he drove through the Jewish Quarter during Yom Kippur, the response by the Jews in the area was disgusting. This may seem obvious to you and me but if someone is upsetting the peace, call the police! Don’t take matters into your own hand by trying to stone the man! Secondly, the response given by Arab-Israeli MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL) was disgraceful. And as well as this, Arab MK Mohammed Barakeh stated that the alleged attack by Jews was “similar to the pogroms that Jews were exposed to at the hands of the Nazi gangs in Germany.” We really just don’t need those types of comments and it just makes you look bad and ignorant. Thankfully law and order has been restored and I really hope this won’t happen next Yom Kippur.

As a treat, here is a documentary that I’ve found on YouTube that have some significance on upcoming events with Iran – enjoy.
