IsraelNN.com: Jordan Arabs Attack Anti-Zionist JewsI think that both my Torah Nationalist and the undying State-loyalist Mamlakhtim are making too much of a big deal out of this.
The anti-Zionist Neturei Karta found out Friday what can happen when it joins Arabs against Israel. They were beaten but escaped injuries.

Jordanian Arabs scuffled with anti-Zionist and pro-Palestinian Authority Neturei Karta members in the Global March on Jerusalem rally Friday. No one was injured....
"They got what's comin' to 'em!"
"Middah k'neged middah!"
"Serves 'em right!"
...are just a few of the clichés being thrown around.
But, this really isn't anything new.
The assimilated Jews of Spain were thrown out equally with those who were not assimilated. Or they "converted," and were eventually lost.
Years later, the Jews who "converted" to Lutheranism were thrown out of the Lutheran churches.
And we all know what happened to the Jews who sought to become fine German citizens, except we're not allowed to talk about that.
Only recently, reports came out of Arabs sexually harassing leftist Arab-lovers in the Shomron. I guess they didn't love Arabs THAT much, after all.
So, whether Neturei Karta "got what was comin' to 'em," or not, is not for me to decide.
Yishma'el (Arabs) still hates Ya'aqov (Jews), even Neturei Karta.
I hope the "Religious Zionists" in Ofra, Eli, and Efrat who think that their Arabs are somehow different from other Arabs will learn from this, instead of wasting time throwing stones at the ultimate example of Jews putting hashqafah (pre-established points of view) ahead of halakhah (Jewish Law).
In other words, Neturei Karta is not so different than many of the Jews in Ofra, Eli, and Efrat.
Unfortunately, this blog post just flew over their heads.
