New Year’s Day in the gondola-laden city of Venice brought with it a vicious attack of a young America Yeshiva student by 15 Arab youths.

The student was visiting his family for the holidays and nearly lost his life. The victim remains unnamed for fear of his family’s safety.

The attackers used various weapons and only fled once onlookers started to shout at them- yelling that police and paramedics were on the way.

It is believed that if the bystanders didn’t intervene, the student would either have permanent damage or would have lost his life. Many Jewish leaders are blaming the Italian politicians. Observatory researcher Stefano Gatti is quoted saying:

“Italian pundits and politicians such as Silvio Berlusconi, Beppe Grillo or Piergiorgio Odifreddi are now writing discriminatory posts and telling racist jokes. Making certain issues seem normal, even funny, is one of the root causes of the rise in anti-Semitic episodes in Italy.”

It is sad to see that such racial violence in still prominent in the world we live in today. This is only one of many recent attacks on the Jewish people. With all that is going on in Israel these days, it is unlikely that these acts of hate will stop.
