Gangs Of Jerusalem


Residents of the Mea She’arim neighborhood in Jerusalem fear the violence that has erupted between two ultra-Orthodox sects will grow and complain the police are not protecting them.

Avraham Hirschman was walking home to Batei Warsaw in Mea Shearim. But he didn’t make it. Ten masked haredim jumped out of a truck and beat Hirschman with clubs and metal spikes, leaving him lying in the street in a pool of blood a few blocks from his home with a multiple stab wounds and a head injury. The attack is said to be related to the fight between the haredi street gang the Sicarii and Ger hasidim over control of the Batei Warsaw houses.

If only they would have “concerned citizens” like Chanina Sperlin, Elie Poltorak and Paul Levi Huebner and Co. in Jerusalem, this problem would have been in court (with many residents facing jail time) long before any violence could erupt.

This is what a gang assault looks like

Hirschman was attacked by a gang of 20 Gerrer hasidim who were riding in a commercial truck. They spotted Hirschman walking and attacked him.

Yes, the Shomrim Six Mesira was nothing less then a modern day blood libel.

  1. Shomrim Six Says:

    You should see the video of the vicious 749 assault, which ended up with six shomrim volunteers having over 125 counts against them and a six week trial.

    The video is said to be so bloody and gruesome that youtube won’t allow it to be posted.

    Imagine, six to eight shomrim guys against a room full of Tzfaties (at-least 30) and the shomrim throwing around the 30 guys like they are play things.

  2. Charedi Rabbis Denounce Jew-on-Jew Internal Violence Says:

    Jerusalem – The rabbis of the Haredi Badatz – the High Court of Justice of the Eida Haredit community – published an unusual and strongly worded denouncement of the internecine violence that has been plaguing the community in recent months.

    The violence has been ascribed to Gur (Gerrer) hassidim, some of whom said it was a response to severe provocations by members of a violent group called the sikrikim. The conflict is connected to a turf war over the “Batei Warsaw” neighborhood.

    In official posters (“pashkvils”) pasted on the bulletin boards and walls of the Me’ah She’arim neighborhood, the Badatz referred to an incident in which a man named Avraham Hirschman was severely beaten, and to another attack, in which a man named Shalom Roset was beaten inside a synagogue.

    “We heard with fear of several incidents of beatings – to the point of pulverization—and damage to Jewish property and capital,” the rabbis wrote. The violent incidents “have reached the point of desecrating synagogues. Woe to the ears that hear this, that such a thing can be done in Israel and no voice be raised in protest.”

    “Anyone complicit in their acts will not be cleansed of this in the next [world],” they summed up, in a pashkvil signed by the Badatz Head, Rav Yitzchak Tuvia Weiss.
