Teenage Girl Reportedly Stoned By Haredi Boys Who Thought She Was A Lesbian

A teenage girl was attacked by a mob of yeshiva students in the Tel Aviv suburb of Ganey Tikva Sunday.

According to the girl, who is a minor, she was attacked because of her physical appearance which indicates her sexual orientation, Ynet reported.

She said was walking down the street following a route she had been taking regularly for the past two years when she was attacked by the mob of yeshiva students who threw stones at her and assaulted her.

"It was the middle of the afternoon. I was wearing my headphones and I passed a bus stop for yeshiva boys. There was a small group there. I passed them by and a few seconds later I started hearing yelling.

“I took my headphones off and turned around, and realized that they were shouting at me. They were yelling 'lesbian' and 'is it a boy or a girl?' and then they started throwing rocks at me. Once they saw I was hurt they ran away. I didn't chase them – I just got out of there.

"I was shocked. I never thought something like this could happen. I pass through this neighborhood every day. I did nothing provocative – it's not like I was wearing the rainbow flag on my back. I was minding my own business. I wasn’t bothering anyone.

"Why did they mob me? They were judging me based on my appearance – and they were right, the way I look isn't misleading – but the fact that a woman has a short hairdo doesn't mean anything. I'm not active anywhere, they couldn’t have recognized me from anywhere. It was all about the way I look.

"My mother is livid. She insisted that we file a complaint with the police and make this incident public. She's right. This is 2013 – these things shouldn’t happen.…I’m a little scared but I'll walk through there again. I see no reason not to. They shouldn’t affect my life in any way,” she told Ynet in an extraordinary interview Tuesday.

The girl was reportedly struck in the face by the stones, which bruised her.

Police confirmed that the girl and her mother had indeed filed a criminal complaint and told Ynet that the incident was under investigation.

Stupid Middle east extremism.

These black hats are getting out of control and are now dangerous not merely annoying. Can you imagine the response if a secular Israeli group had stoned a Haredi youth for no reason other than his appearance? Hell to pay I have no doubt.

What's needed is a heavy crackdown though I suppose officialdom will do nothing much as usual which will further embolden the extreme elements. These primitives are not meaningfully different from the worst of the Muslims in backwaters of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Primitive, vicious, violent and undersocialized.

I am so sick of hearing these stories. Where are the Israeli police? Arrest these perverts and register them as the sex offenders they are and be done with it already.

Great story. Except that there aren't any black hatters in ganei tikvah. Nor is there any black hat yeshiva in ganei tikvah. Must've been the modern orthodox bnei akiva,

So why does Shmarya have a picture of black hatters up? To mislead?

Well, Ynet uses the word hared in both its news brief and in its longer story.

Can we assume they have done so in order to "mislead"?

Or might they know more than you?

Or could they have made an error?

What we can say for sure based on this and other comments from you is that you are not interested in truth. All you're interested in is attacking me.

And that makes you a very disreputable critic no matter what the truth turns out to be.

Toddle off, little man.

Nobody will be arrested. On the very off chance someone is nobody will ever see the inside of a jail.

Shmarya, blaming it on ynet doesn't change anything. You claim that I'm not interested in the truth, yet you are interested in the truth. So I challenge you to do basic research, as befits your supposed claim to journalistic integrity. Please tell us which Haredi yeshiva is in ganei tikvah. But since you can't, because none exists, you instead resort to attacking me, while blaming your journalistic malpractice on ynet. Wow, pretty manly of you, I admit.

I once played basketball in a chaloni area - when one of them through a rock as hard as hell at me. I was injured and never went to play there again. I think hatred is fostered on both sides of the fence and that alot should be done to bring love to brothers

Too Stupid to Think of a Name - Why don't you ask Ynet where the boys were from? If the stone-throwing, backyard savages have been wrongly identified, then it's Ynet who are responsible, not Shmarya.


If Shmarya had posted the story without a link you would, no doubt, have demanded. proof that he wasn't making it up to smear the junior faction of the BBHBB. Yet when he does provide a link, you hold him responsible for (what you claim are) errors in the original.

Just how many extra chromosomes has your consanguinity. blessed you with, that what you take from this story is not-

"Backward mob of theofascist thugs stone girl without provocation, religious extremism needs to be stopped"


but

"Nasty blogger accurately quotes Ynet, in order to malign my fellow cult members. It's not fair, he made Ynet do it!"


Pathetic.

I question the sexuality of the "boys" Any group of
repressed "boys" going after a girl who they believe
is a lesbian..... there is something going on with
them.

@Ben,
it doesn't matter how she was dressed, attacking anyone for the way they dress is just wrong!

One fine day these little bastards are going to come across the one person who will retaliate beyond their ability to defend themselves. I guess the world is waiting for the first generation of Haredi Castrati.

picture is misleading about as bad as bbc/ secondly if a rock hits you in the face you get more than a bruise but who needs the facts

These mea shearim rab arilach were drunk.
If not, How would they what a girl looks like!!!
They are brought up to not to look at anything but male objects.. This is why they end being child molesters and pediphiles. They stay in the mikvah to long.


Apologies to: Get Back ------The Beatles:

Yossi was a man who wished he had a boner
But he knew it couldn't last
Yossi left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some baal teshuva class

Get back, get back
Get back to the "alter heim"
Get back, get back
Get back to the "alter heim"
Get back, Yossi
Go home

Get back, get back
Back to the "alter heim"
Get back, get back
Back to the "alter heim"
Get back, Yos

Sweet Leah Modern thought she was a woman
But she dressed just like a man
All the frum fanatics said she got it coming
So they stoned her as she ran

Get back, get back
Get back with your iphone
Get back, get back
Get back with your iphone
Get back, Leah
Go home

Get back, get back
Get back with your iphone
Get back, get back
Get back with your iphone
Oy...

Get back, Leah
Your Ima's waiting for you
Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her un-tzneeyusdig sweater
Get back home, Leah

Get back, get back
Get back with your iphone
Get back, get back
Get back
Oy vey!

Nice one YL, I never would have thought about that song.

("Are you a boy or are you a girl", The Barbarians)

Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?
Without peyos, you look like a girl
Yeah, you look like a girl
You may be a boy, hey, you look like a girl

You’re either a girl, or you come from New York
Yeah, New York
You dress like we think a lesbian will dress
Yeah, lesbian
You may be lesbian, so we’ll stone you to death.
Hey!

Hey!
You’re always wearing skin tight pants, and boys wear pants.
Cause if a girl wore them, she’d be lesbian.
Yeah, lesbian.
You may be a girl, but we’ll say lesbian.

Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?
Without peyos, you look like a girl
Yeah, you look like a girl
You may be a boy, hey, you look like a girl

Thanks, Sarek. I'm not familiar with the song you posted. I'm old.

....a white girl dressed in nothing but thongs....

Perhaps you'd care to discuss the spitting on and harassment of little MO girls in Beit Shemesh whose MO dress wasn't quite tzniusdik enough for these frum primitives. Not exactly provocative dress was it? Never mind that assaulting anyone in any situation is wrong and illegal, which it certainly is. Perhaps you can explain why someone dressed in a manner or sporting a haircut which is within norms for the greater society (ie: Israel) should be considered responsible for an assault committed on herself by religioius extremists? They don't own the street. She wasn't interacting with them. Attitudes like yours taken to the logical extreme have their ultimate expresssion in horrific outrages such as the one recently committed on a bus in New Delhi.

Illegally.

I'm sure their rabbis will take swift and decisive action. [/sarcasm]

Not that it should matter. She should never have been attacked.

That being said even with what she described as a short hairdo 99.9% of aware Americans would say she was a lesbian primarily dyke in orientation.

Maybe the boys should be more concerned as to why she has chosen her lifestyle and make themselves more appealing?

"To put it in New York context; imagine a pretty white girl dressed in nothing but thongs walking at midnight in Bedford-Stuyvesant or South Bronx. I think the probability that she would make it "

Both situations are wrong. Noone should be assaulted because of her dress, not in Israel, not in Bed Stuy, not in her house.

You aren't supposed to post pics.

I would personally like to drop each of these rock throwers in the slammer.

You know so little that you don't even know what you don't fucking know.


Off the top of my head (covered with long hair, just like my wife's) I can name the following women with short hair*:


Halle Berry

Emma Watson

Victoria Beckham

Keira Knightley

Natalie Portman

Winona Ryder


All with short hair, all straight.


Now then, a different list:

Jodie Foster

Tichina Arnold

Portia De Rossi

Sarah Paulson

Beth Ditto

Lily Tomlin


All lesbians, all with long hair.

Oh and please, PLEASE tell me what you think you mean by. "dyke in orientation"? Because that is hilarious. Homophobes are generally stupid, but you take the fucking idiot-cake with that statement.

What would you think of someone who was stupid enough to say "That guy's Jewish, but he's a kike"?


Being an idiotic bigot is one thing, but being an uninformed, deliberately ignorant bigot who just babbles incoherently? That's just sad.


BTW - Are the women in your little cult all gay? 'Cos I have to tell you, women with shaved heads are typically stone butches. There's a lot of buzzed heads in Kiryas Joel, Villy, Stanford Hill, Beit Shemesh etc.
