Police Crack Down on Anti-Zionist Jews in Jerusalem

Israeli police officers were filmed knocking a man to the ground and shoving others violently as they cracked down on a group of ultra-orthodox, anti-Zionist Jews in Jerusalem on November 1.

Footage of the incident was captured by Betzedek, an NGO that says it’s focused on police violence against protesters.

Betzedek said the incident followed reports of Palestinian flags being hung in the area. Israeli police said officers were in the Mea Shearim neighborhood on November 1 to “locate and erase Nazi graffiti” when a “disturbance began that included throwing various objects including eggs, water, bottles, as well as throwing stones at the police officers.”
