Jewish teens assault Muslim, scream “Jews rule this country”
"They hit me in the face with brass knuckles four or five times while somebody held my hands," said the victim, Shahid Amber, 24, a gas station attendant.
"Then they all beat and kicked me. They were screaming 'Muslim m-f-r. You m-f-g Muslim terrorists. Go back to your country.' "
Amber, who was eating ice cream outside a Midwood Dunkin' Donuts when the gang attacked on Sunday, needed 15 stitches on his broken nose and reconstructive surgery.
Yet zionist organizations, which must be common in Brooklyn, are not even mentioned in this map of hate groups that TGR linked today.
Witnesses who called 911 said that 10-12 youths jumped him, a source said.
Amber said the attack began after one of the group asked if he were Muslim and he answered yes.
Amber's father, Umbar Islam, 56, described a brutal assault by boys in long black jackets, black pants and black hats.
"They punched and broke his nose. They ripped his jacket. He was covered in blood.
They said, 'Jews rule this country!' " Islam said.
Notice how The New York Sun conveniently left this part out.
"These people are crazy. In his life, he's never fought. He doesn't know how to fight."
Yitzi Horowitz, 15, David Brach, 15, Yossi Friedman, 17, Shulomi Bitton, 16, and Benjamin Wasserman, 16, all of Borough Park, were charged with assault as a hate crime, gang assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon.
It's not clear what degree of assault they were charged with. [The New York Sun reports first, second and third degree asault and first degree gang assault.]
Horowitz and Brach were freed on their own recognizance. The other three were ordered to pay $5,000 cash bond and are due back in court today.
What a joke.
These guys should have been required to pay at least a $20,000 bond to make sure they don't flee to israel.
Bitton's mother, Irit Bitton, said last night that her son was innocent.
Since the police only arrested 5 of the 10 or 12 assailants, it's safe to assume that her son was one of the more culpable suspects, i.e., more easily connected to the crime.
"My son was just standing over there and he did not touch anybody," she said.
"He's a sensitive boy. He wouldn't even kill a fly. I believe my son 100%."
She also denied he was biased.
"We have clean hearts," she said.
My God - who is she kidding?!!
They expressly asked the guy if he was Muslim before pummeling him with brass knuckles!!!
I bet he wouldn't kill a fly - provided it's a Jewish one!
Amber, who has lived in the U.S. for seven years, said, "I respect all religions . . . I love this country. It has given me everything. I would defend this country with my blood.
Someone send this woman and her son a couple of one way tickets to the frontlines in Iraq.
Or, nevermind - Iraqis have enough blood-thirsty lunatics on their hands.
