I don’t know exactly when this happened, but on Twitter there are hundreds of Arabic speakers celebrating this brief video clip of a Jew, wearing his prayer shawl and tefillin, running for his life down a Jerusalem alley as Arabs throw things at him. He trips and loses his yarmulka as Arabs jeer.
The Tweet says “Zionist settlers entered a neighborhood of #Jerusalem . He did not expect what happened to him next.😄”
The people responding are mostly enthusiastic. When one woman was ambivalent, saying “I have conflicting feelings. Do I rejoice for this fierce resistance scene or feel concern for this weak man in this bad situation?” she was attacked as having “Stockholm syndrome” and having some mental problem for feeling any sympathy with the Jew. Another answered to her “I have conflicting feelings – do I feel happiness at the scene or anger at your arrogance where I want to spit at your face?”
Many express the hope that this is how all Jews will leave Jerusalem. Some point out that celebrating this video makes the world think badly of Palestinians. And one starts a rumor that the man insulted the prophet Mohammed which is why he was being chased in the first place.
