I still think it’s a hoax.
A 12-year-old boy getting in a fight on the playground – even assuming this is real – getting this much attention in international media is completely insane, is it not?
The Jewish boy who was forced to kneel and kiss the shoes of a Muslim classmate has been sent threatening text messages.
The messages were sent Friday after photos of the incident were splashed across the front pages of newspapers in Australia and around the world, the Daily Mail reported. The photo was first published by the Australian Jewish News.
The messages told the 12-year-old boy that he would be slaughtered and asked if he wanted to “talk about suicide,” according to the report.
Victoria Police confirmed to the Daily Mail Australia that they were investigating a report of such text messages but would not comment further.
Dvir Abramovich, chairman of B’nai B’rith’s Anti-Defamation Commission, called the threats “vile and deplorable.” He said the boy’s parents now want a broader inquiry into anti-Semitism in schools.
Abramovich has helped the family to relocate the boy from Cheltenham Secondary College in suburban Melbourne to a Jewish school.
If it was a white boy accusing a Moslem of forcing him to kiss his feet, then – well, if that were the case, the school probably would have told him to shut up, and the media certainly never would have reported it.
But assuming in some alternate reality it did happen that a white boy got into the media saying that a Moslem made him kiss his feet, then you would have all of these various Islamic groups jumping into action to attack the accuser and say the Moslem boy did nothing wrong.
But of course, when it is a Jew accusing a Moslem, the Moslem advocacy groups stay silent.
For the hajis know who butters their falafel, and on which side.
