Jewish Family attacked by Arabs during Independence day fest in Jerusalem

Tzipi Shukrun recalls brutal attack on her family during barbecue in heart of Jerusalem; The family arrived at a park near the Jerusalem Cinematheque, to celebrate Independence Day. "We wanted to have a barbecue on the grass with my parents. I have three small children. At around 16:30 a group of Arabs, who seemed to be about 18 years old, sat next to us. It was calm; there were a number of Jewish and Arab families near us so we weren't scared. My kids played soccer with the Arab children."

But as the Shukrun family was preparing to leave, the teens approached and began cursing. "My two brothers, my father and another teenager tried to prevent them from reaching my children. In response, they took out clubs, chains and a knife and began brutally attacking the children," Tzipi Shukrun recalled.


She said the assailants yelled out "Yahud (Jew)."

Tzipi said one of her brothers "was struck in the head and began bleeding, and another one of my brothers suffered a severe blow to the eye. I called the police but it took them 25 minutes to arrive at the scene.

In another incident, an ultra-Orthodox man was attacked by two young Arabs in Jerusalem's Old City. He did not require medical attention. Border Guard officers detained one suspect, while the other fled the scene.

Three members of the Shukrun family were hospitalized overnight Thursday following an attack by a group of young Arabs. Two of the family members were moderately wounded in the attack, while the third suffered light injuries.





Police said they are looking into the possibility that the attack was nationalistically-motivated, but are exploring other possibilities as well.

"I tried running away with my children and sister, but they kept coming back to hit us," Tzipi Shukrun told Ynet. "They kids are traumatized."





The family arrived at a park located in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, near the Jerusalem Cinematheque, to celebrate Independence Day. "We wanted to have a barbecue on the grass with my parents. I have three small children. At around 16:30 a group of Arabs, who seemed to be about 18 years old, sat next to us. It was calm; there were a number of Jewish and Arab families near us so we weren't scared. My kids played soccer with the Arab children."

In response, they took out clubs, chains and a knife and began brutally attacking the children," Tzipi Shukrun recalled.



She said the assailants yelled out "Yahud (Jew)."



Tzipi said one of her brothers "was struck in the head and began bleeding, and another one of my brothers suffered a severe blow to the eye. I called the police but it took them 25 minutes to arrive at the scene.



"My brother, who served in Sayeret Matkal (elite IDF unit), arrived at the scene before the police did," she told Ynet. Police officials said officers arrived at the scene at 6:22 pm, just seven minutes after Tzipi Shukrun called.



"I tried to run away with my sister and children, but they (Arabs) kept coming back to hit us. Luckily, my brothers blocked their path. It's difficult to fathom that something like this could happen in the heart of the capital," Shukrun said.

The family documented the incident with a camera. The photos were handed over to the police, but investigators have yet to arrest any suspects.



Yonatan Shukrun, the brother who was hit in the head, told Ynet that "eight Arabs, aged 15 to 22, arrived just as we were preparing to leave. At some point they approached us and tried to reach the little kids – aged two, eight and 10.





"When we tried to stop them, they took out a whip and a knife and began hitting us. I was struck with a club. We managed to protect the women and children, but it wasn't easy," he said.



Yonatan was later treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.









In another incident, an ultra-Orthodox man was attacked by two young Arabs in Jerusalem's Old City. He did not require medical attention. Border Guard officers detained one suspect, while the other fled the scene.

The video is from a year ago and shows a similiar racist attack of an Ultra-Orthodox guy by two young Arabs, in the town of Carmiel, which also called at him hateful remarks about his look. The police didn't locate the attacking guys and closed the case (The video of the attack start at 0:15)-

  • If you will read what the woman says you will see that the routine is not of one group attacking the other, but of Jewish and Arab families sitting next to each other, and their kids even playing togheter sometimes.
    This can also be seen many times in Jaffa.

    From time to time there are such ugly hate attacks, also by Jewish teens on Arabs.
    Such incidents has 2 way tickets, and it is pitty the victims are usually inoccent people who later prefer not to trust anymore the other side...

      You can notice I already have near 3000 items over here- part of them also shows settler violence against Arabs ect.

      Some here are trying to portray me as a hard-rightist who hates Arabs, but i'm very very far from that.

  • The jews are not much better, if they want to push an arab family out they will throw rocks at them and throw shit at their front door. Then they will bribe a local jewish official who then illegally kicks the arab family from their home even if they have a tittle to the property. To be honest both sides are just as bad as each other.

  • And you think it's surprising that the Arab residents hate the Jewish State establishment? Even more the flaunting of this on 'independence day' ?

    What would you do if your country was seized and you became an effective second-class citizen?

      I was protesting each and every week, but I wouldn't attack children and families in parks with chains and sticks.

      You are lucky that your natives don't attack you with knives and chains.

      "As resource companies push ever deeper into Australia’s remotest areas, however, Aboriginal leaders are leveraging their rights as traditional landowners to negotiate deals with companies and governments that are seeking to develop their holdings. They say the potential windfall — hundreds of millions of dollars — will rescue their communities from their long dependence on welfare and state subsidies. "

      Every day we are exposed to drunken Aborigines attacking us with sticks, stones, loud swearing, and shit.

      The shit is the worst. They simply drop their pants wherever they are and shit on the street, inside shops, inside schools, everywhere. It's not directed at whites, it's just natural for them.

      Arab youth tend to violence quit quickly- Ive seen it with my own eyes, and not one time...

      Not just them, also Jewish youth from arab countries families (in here we call them- Arsim) tend to use violence and intimidations quite often.
