Like I said when I first reported on this story here, this was no accident. This was a deliberate provocative attack on Jews on the highest of holy days.
It was a concerted series of hostile acts and calls for violence against Jews were heard in Arab mosques in the city.
EXPEL ALL ARABS FROM ISRAEL. IMMEDIATELY. THEY REFUSE TO LIVE IN PEACE WITH THE JEWS IN THE JEWISH HOMELAND. They have to go.
What's with the police taking no action except to push back the Jews. WTF? Can someone please tell the Jews "it's better to die on your feet than live on your knees."
Three Jews, including a baby, suffered injuries by rock-throwing Arabs who attacked Hasidim who were dancing after the Sabbath. Akko city officials said that police arrived at the scene but did not immediately act to restrain the Arabs and instead pushed back the Jews with water hoses. Jews protesting the Arab violence firebombed one Arab apartment.
Police during the day staved off a violent confrontation between several hundred angry Jews and Arabs following the Yom Kippur eve disturbance by an Arab driver who drove into a Jewish neighborhood.
Eyewitnesses contradicted the Arab driver's claim that he respected the sanctity of Yom Kippur by driving quietly into the neighborhood on the evening of Yom Kippur. He inexplicably told reporters that his radio was turned off, while Jews in the neighborhood said it was blaring and that he drove at such a high speed that people were afraid he intended to run them over in a repeat of similar terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria
We are supposed to believe an Arab Muslim repected the Jewish holiday? bwahahhahahahahahaha. The guy was a pig barreling through the streets of the Jewish town blaring his "music".
"Inexplicably" - ha! He lied because he knows the Jew hating world press will print his lie as fact.
Arab leaders condemned the driver for disregarding the sanctity of the holy day, but Hamas leaders called on Gaza Arabs to march in solidarity to "reveal the true face of the Israeli oppression against Palestinians in Acre and in all the Palestinian cities."
De facto Gaza prime minister Ismail Haniyeh's spokesman said that the anger by "Jewish settlers" in Akko "should serve as a wake-up alarm to those who are betting on reaching peace with an occupation that rejects everything Palestinian or Arab." Spokesman Taher al-Nono accused "extremist Jewish settlers [in Akko] of acts of terror that could be the start of the final phase of ethnic cleansing of the 1948-occupied Palestine
." He referred to the city as "occupied in 1948."
Arab and Jewish leaders in the city of 50,000 have boasted in the past about coexistence in the ancient port city, and Arab community leaders made a point to condemn the Arab driver, regardless of his behavior. They said he should have found a different way to arrive at the predominantly Jewish neighborhood.
The enemy must be destroyed before they destroy us. Period.
