1. terrible but a message
alexi   (08.29.12)
all jews especially students and the haredi have to undergo martial arts trainning whether in the idf or outside of it so they can handle themselves. At this off campus party where tennen was confronted and beaten and stapled, if he was physically strong, he could have smashed one of the attackers.a nd those that beat the weak look for weakness. One of the reasons avigdor liberman frightens arabs is they know if it comes down to it and war breaks out, he would smash them. He is not a wus like olmert, haber, beilin, merridor, amir oren, and peres. he has some girth and looks like he could go a few rounds and potential attackers know that. All jews have to look like they can go into battle and not be pathetic peres and beilin who run to obama for protection. Even barak who I have little regard for is a martial arts expert and can handle himself in the rough going. So all jewish parents, send your kids into the idf or martial arts-karate or boxing and Do it now. Otherwise we will have more cases of innocent kids like tennen getting beaten.
2. also prosecute bystanders
BG ,   NYC   (08.29.12)
I believe there is now a law in place whereby bystanders who do nothing to help or even cheer on offenders can be successfully prosecuted.
3. Have you noticed?
4. Strange reporting
Tom W ,   USA   (08.29.12)
The article states that there where 20 people watching the attack on top of the perpetrators. There is not a word describing the people who committed this crime. It's conceivable that the victim saw his attackers, described them to the press but it was intentionally omitted. Food for thought....
5. Also to get regular practice in the shooting range
Arad ,   Arad   (08.29.12)
and carry personal defense gun
6. Mossad job
Reuben ,   Miami   (08.29.12)
they must take up this search, and do justice, eye for an eye
7. Inhuman and degrading
sk ,   USA   (08.29.12)
The United States is a party to the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment to human beings. There are enough witnesses to help identify and bring these punks to prosecution. If they are not punished adequately under the law, well ...let them be indentified first!
8. At least they didn't run him over with a bulldozer
RIP Rachel Corrie ,   USA   (08.29.12)
9. # 1 Alex, you are exactly right !
Moshe ,   Usa   (08.29.12)
10. Neo Nazis cowards as usual
k ,   US   (08.29.12)
they are always tough when they are on the internet, or when they are 2 on 1 or 3 on 1 or when they have a large army against a few people, but 1 on 1 they will never speak their minds
11. Been saying that for years
David ,   USA   (08.29.12)
I would recommend KRav MAga along with Muay thai through. Boxing is great too and easy to learn. Krav maga takes about 2 years and Muay thai about 2 years to apply well.
12. American Jewish boys
David ,   USA   (08.29.12)
However unlike Israelis boys. Most American Jewish kids do not have that tough mind set. They are pampered throughout life. While Christian kids are usually not. So it would be tough to do martial arts if you grew up that way.
13. I hope they get these cowardly punks!!!
Taz Man ,   USA   (08.29.12)
I'm praying for the victum!
14. to the family
observing ,   eilat   (08.29.12)
why waste your time with the adl it is the jdl that should take action
15. #12 Most Israeli boys are still having moms food delivered
josh in israel   (08.29.12)
at age 30 every weekend. She does the laundry for them, maybe even sends breastmilk..
16. Stop the Anti-Semitic tide in the States!
Norman Beck ,   Ottawa, Canada   (08.29.12)
The only remedy and justice for this is killing the perpetrators! (The bystanders then can be prosecuted by the system).
17. Horrible thing to happen, but that's why we need strength.
Henry from New York ,   Under the Tuscan Sun   (08.29.12)
A physically weak Jew is a vulnerable Jew wherever he is. All the American Jews I know that I like are all physically fit and either scrappy or big and know how to use their size. It's also shameful that none of his "friends" did anything to help him while this was happening. I hope that the cowards who did this are caught and sued into poverty
18. Lock these sickos away
Ron ,   US   (08.29.12)
With a hate crime and many witnesses, they'll do prison time. Their future plans are history.
19. arrested for negligence
tiki ,   belgium   (08.29.12)
People are 24/7 on the phone, twitter or something else. Only in this case nobody thaught of phoning or twittering the POLICE. These 'bystanders are guilty of doing nothing and should be sued aswell!
20. American Jewish boys
miguel ,   Israel   (08.29.12)
David, because Americans are not required to serve in the military we are considered pampered? I am born and bred American and do not consider myself pampered, nor any of my jewish friends. It really depends on your upbringing, and serves no purpose making sweeping stereotypes.
21. # 15
realy? # 15>?? ,   israel   (08.29.12)
Just bec u get breastfed by your mother at age 30, doesnt mean that other ppl too gt the same. People in israel are allot more tougher then what you are making them out to be.
22. @6 Mossad is not a vigilante group
rebecca ,   Modiin   (08.29.12)
Thanks for the suggestion but I think Mossad is busy watching Iranians and Syrians, along with the usual Hesbala and Hamas guys right now. You're going to have to use your own resources.
23. #8
Mickey ,   Sydney, Australia   (08.29.12)
Rachel Corrie deliberately put herself in danger so that the bulldozer driver could not see her. This guy did nothing to these attackers only that he told them he is Jewish. maybe that's putting oneself in danger nowdays
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (08.29.12)
And, being armed at all times. Michigan, the new ahab the arab state of chaos.
25. Police Do Not Intend to Investigate
Dallas ,   Canada   (08.29.12)
The police are irresponsibly not intending to investigate this as a hate crime, and so they imply that there is not much to see here. Disturbing.
26. #24 Big Bad Jew Good Advice
I cant believe That this happened at MSU at a off campus party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First Who Were The Perps? Second has Zachary's Dad Been up to MSU And Had Security/Police Speak With ON Lookers who witnessed This Hate Crime? My Well Wishes To Zach and His Family for a Speedy Recovery.
27. Ben Gurian
Metatrona ,   NYC, USA   (08.29.12)
When Ben Gurian was in charge, the guilty creeps would have been targeted...and their homes destroyed. It worked!!!
28. No evidence
Daniel   (08.29.12)
Witnesses saw this kid get punched and none of them saw any Nazi gestures or insults. Police also say there is no evidence of this bizarre "stapling" claim. Kid gets in a fight at a party, claims antisemitism to get revenge on the guy who hit him, and you all react like Pavlov's dogs.
29. hewas at a party not acting as a human shield
r ,   Atlanta US   (08.29.12)
get your facts straight
30. #21 - just saying what i see motek. dont tell me you dont
josh in israel   (08.29.12)
