Chassidim in Netanya go crazy and beat a man unconscious because he dared look at a pregnant lady!

by VIN News
Three Weeks after being beaten by a local “modesty squad”, authorities have released the identity of the 50 year old chareidi man, who remains unconscious and on a respirator in the intensive care unit of a Petach Tikva hospital.

According to reports on Israeli news site Ch. 2, (
 50 year old Hertzel Moshiach had been waiting for a bus on Rechov Weitzman in the Kiryat Sanz section of Netanya, next to Laniado Hospital, at approximately 11 PM Motzei Shabbos . As previously reported on VIN News, Moshiach was beaten after a group of chareidim allegedly observed him looking at a pregnant chareidi woman who was also waiting at the bus stop. 

 In a video taken at Moshiach’s bedside Moshiach’s sister, Esther Shem Tov, recounted that neighbors alerted her to the attack. They said, ‘Esther, run, they are killing your brother. We don’t know if he is alive or dead but they are beating him with deathly blows’.” “How a healthy person is going, not hurting anyone, never does anything wrong to anyone ever and the tznius squad decides to attack him, for what? Because he looked at a pregnant woman?” added another sister, Racheli Tzabari. According to eye witnesses, the attackers followed Moshiach to his house, where they tied up his hands and feet and placed Moshiach, who was screaming for help, into a waiting black vehicle. “I heard someone scream ‘help, help!’,” reported one eye witness. “I looked up and I saw these chareidi men and an older man.” 

 Another eye witness said that he was not able to see the vehicle’s license plate but that it drove off in the direction of Kiryat Sanz and that the attackers were clearly dressed as chareidim. Both eye witnesses requested to have their faces obscured in the video out of fear of retribution from the attackers. Authorities believe that Moshiach was beaten unconscious in the car and was later found lying in critical condition, in a pool of his own blood in Kiryat Sanz. Israeli police have yet to make any arrests in the case but they are investigating the incident and vowing to bring those responsible for the attack to justice. “I want them to come here and see him,” said Tzabari. “I want them to tell me why they did this.”
