Irony Alert- Anti-Zionist Neturei Karta Rabbi Attacked By Muslim In Amsterdam

How ironic. A 50-year-old Neturei Karta rabbi, Yosef Antebi, was the victim of a hate crime in Amsterdam. Apparently, a man who appeared to be Muslim stopped his car while Antebi was walking down the street, and proceeded to insult and then attack him.

According to a friend of the rabbi:

“As he was walking down the street, a car stopped next to him, and a man who appeared to be a Muslim immigrant came out. The immigrant started shouting anti-Jewish slurs at the rabbi. Rabbi Antebi is anti-Zionist, he does not advocate for war in the Middle East but he was identified as a Zionist. The Muslim started yelling at him and threatening him, and the rabbi noticed that the immigrant was going to attack him.”

“He tried to escape, and the Muslim [man] began to run after him, caught him and started kicking him in the stomach and lungs. “He felt that he could not breathe, collapsed, began to vomit blood, while the immigrant spat on him. After the attacker fled the scene, Rabbi Antebi recovered a bit and managed to photograph him.”

Antebi was hospitalized with internal bleeding and some broken ribs.

The irony, of course, is that Neturei Karta are anti-Zionists.  Some representatives even attended Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Holocaust Deniers Tehran Conference in 2006. In fact, they are very similar to Muslims in the way they treat their women, and their desire for Israel to be wiped off the map. The head of the Neturei Karta, Rabbi Meir Hirsch, has said as much.

I doubt this will change Antebi's attitude towards Israel and his fellow Jews.
