Woman Attacked by Jewish Soccer Hooligans Called for Questioning Because She Hit a Car Mid-flight

Angry Beitar fans assaulted her car with three small children inside near Jerusalem's Teddy Stadium in May. She got into an accident while trying to drive away.

Police have summoned a woman attacked by thugs outside Teddy Stadium two months ago for questioning, because she hit a car while fleeing her assailants.

On May 1 dozens of angry Beitar fans poured out of the soccer stadium after their team had lost the match to Bnei Sakhnin. They saw Nadwa Jabar sitting in her car, at a traffic light. Jabar’s two daughters, aged 3 and 6, and their 8-year-old friend were sitting in the back.

The fans identified Jabar as an Arab by her head cover and attacked her with screams and curses. Some of them jumped onto her car, spat at the girls and tried to open the doors. They bashed the car and broke its headlights.

Jerusalem police called a number of suspects for questioning. 

Jabar has also received a summons for investigation due to a traffic accident she caused while trying to flee the scene in her car.

“Calling my client for investigation is scandalous,” Jabbar’s attorney, Eitay Mack, wrote to the police traffic investigator. “This is an illegitimate attempt to turn my client from a victim to a felon and reduce the gravity of a serious Jewish chauvinist crime in the heart of Jerusalem.”

Gadi Gvrayahu, head of the anti-racism group Tag Meir, said “summoning for investigation a woman who had been violently assaulted in her car with her children, solely for being an Arab, is part of the police’s practice of turning a blind eye and not taking action against the real suspects of racist attacks on non-Jews nationwide.” He said such attacks take place about once a fortnight, on average.

The police said in response that they haven’t opened any file against the teacher. 

“Another person, who is not related to the incident, filed a complaint and demanded to find the driver who had hit his car. The police have a duty to serve everyone and called the plaintiff to verify her involvement before passing her details to the insurance company.”

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
