(DailyVantage.com) – In Sydney, Australia, a group of pro-Palestinian supporters brutally attacked a Jewish man. The man, whose identity has not been released, was sent to a hospital and spent four days there recovering.
Pro-Palestinian protestors first marched at the Sydney Opera House nearly a month before the recent attack on the Jewish man. The gathering took place to celebrate Hamas’s attack on Israelis on October 7th. During the rally, some protestors could be heard chanting, “Gas the Jews,” and they set an Israeli flag on fire. The New South Wales state government told Jewish people to avoid any events or rallies that commemorate the Hamas attack.
The 44-year-old victim was near a playground on a street in Sydney. He said he noticed a pro-Palestinian rally poster promoting an event that had already occurred. Since the advertisement was partially damaged and would soon fall from where it hung, and since it was outdated, the victim of the attack said that he pulled it down without giving it a second thought.
In the distance on the playground, a father, whose identity has also not been released, watched the man tear the poster down. The pro-Palestinian father approached the Jewish man and threatened him, asking whether or not he supported Israel. Then, the father reportedly threatened the victim, saying, “I will murder you.”
Meanwhile, the Jewish man attempted to call emergency responders, but help did not arrive in time, and police only showed up after the attack. During the assault, onlookers began to surround and insult the Jewish man. Someone hit him in the back of the head, causing him to fall to the ground, after which three men began to kick and batter him as he lay helpless. The crowd continued to hurl insults and called him a “pro-Jew dog.”
The crowd dispersed before emergency responders arrived at the scene.
The violent attack left the unnamed man with a concussion and two backs. The Jewish man was struck in the head at least 12 times, and he was left with four fractures in his spine.
The NSW Police Department is now investigating the assault and is asking any witnesses from the public to come forward to help solve the crime.
