JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian man says he was beaten and arrested by a group of Israeli police officers on Monday evening.

Sam al-Araj, 18, said he was attacked at 10 p.m. Monday after leaving the light rail at the Damascus Gate station near Jerusalem's Old City.

Al-Araj explained that he was with a friend in the rail when a group of young Israelis started making provocative gestures at them.

When they left the train, there were around 35 Israelis aged 20-25, and mostly Russian-born Israelis surrounded them. When they tried to flee the scene, the Israelis followed them, he said.

“My friend managed to escape from the area, and I was assaulted and beaten with rifle butts,” he added.

A number of them showed police IDs after the attack, and al-Araj was arrested, handcuffed, and taken to Saladdin police station where he was beaten and assaulted, he said.

Al-Araj added that he was released on bail at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately return calls late Monday.

This is remarkably similar to the sort of thuggery that erupted when the Nazis came to power in Germany. Then, of course, Jews were the victims, and here they are the perpetrators, but otherwise...
