Jews and Arabs working together


A Jewish attorney is suing two Brooklyn schoolgirls on behalf of his Arab client, a 10-year-old boy the girls allegedly bound with tape and tossed in a closet. That would be a little more interesting in Israel, but this story is still a whopper. From the NY Daily News:

The boy suffered “severe personal injuries - humiliation, ridicule and gross embarrassment” from the incident in his fourth-grade classroom at Public School 114 in Canarsie on Oct. 26, said his lawyer, Michael Lazarowitz. The suit blames the city and Education Department for failing to supervise the school. Education officials declined to comment.

Lazarowitz said the girls attacked Abdulla from behind, taped his arms behind his back, put tape on his nose and mouth, then locked him in the closet.

As Abdulla, who was born in Yemen, struggled, Lazarowitz said the girls hurled “racial and ethnic slurs to the effect - ‘go back to your country, we don’t want you here.’”


And I thought I had elementary school bad.
