Antisemitic Attack on Jewish Children on School bus.

 

Kids terrorised by Nazis on bus, says Mum

This mother says 8 drunk men stormed her school bus in Bondi screaming ‘kill the Jews’, threatening to cut the throats of terrified kids on board.

“They were screaming ‘Heil Hitler’, ‘Kill the Jews’, ‘Palestine must kill you Jews’, ‘We are going to cut your throats and slice your throats open’ — just all very bad, anti-Semitic stuff.

“Jewish schools need to be on high alert. I am shaking like a leaf. My kids were on a private school bus only for Jewish schoolchildren.”

The teens got off at Bondi Junction after children phoned their parents in tears.

Mrs Blackburn said: “They phoned hysterically from Bondi saying, ‘Help us Mummy, strange bad drunk men are on the bus’.

“Then the phone cut off and another child rang saying, ‘They’re threatening to kill us, they are screaming ‘Heil Hitler’.”

Hey Mummy, please help us, there are eight strange men who have been let on to a school bus and they are screaming ‘Heil Hitler! Kill the Jews!’ they want to cut out our throats’

One female student who was on the bus said: “All we could do was run to the front of the bus. They told the girls they were ‘f … ing c … s.”

Another mother, Isabelle Stanton, whose daughters Noa, 8, and Anais, 12, boarded at Mount Sinai College in Maroubra, said: “They were screaming racial stuff, ‘We are going to murder you’, ‘We are going to kill you’, and ‘Free Palestine’.

“When they got on the bus they wanted to sit next to the kids. When they got off they kicked the door and windows of the bus and yelled, ‘We are going to bash you guys. F. ­Israel, Free Palestine’.

“The kids are aware of what is going on in the Middle East but the conflict in the Middle East should not be ­imported here — we are now feeling very vulnerable.”

Noa was sitting at the back of the bus. “They got on and couldn’t walk properly and looked drunk and said they had just been pumping drugs in the city,” she said.

“They said ‘Come sit with us, we won’t do anything’. So we went to the bus driver and said, ‘Get them off the bus’ and he said ‘Don’t worry’ and told them to ‘Zip your lips’. We were panicking and crying.”

Mrs Stanton said parents could not understand why the thugs were allowed on the bus.

“I have no words, when children are involved it triggers some terrible emotions.”

Distraught parents said they wanted the Communal Security Group, run by the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, to be on the school bus for every stop from now on. Parents collected their frightened children from North Bondi, where they gave statements to police.

Board of Deputies chief executive Vic Alhadeff condemned the racist ambush.

“We are deeply disturbed by this incident and we are working with the police and the state government to ensure that proper and adequate security measures are put in place,” he said.

Police said they were hunting a gang of teenagers.

A group of men have stormed a school bus, unleashing racist abuse at young school girls, listen first hand of the episode by two of the passengers on board.

  1. It’s sick enough that in 2014, Jewish schools still need walls and gates and fences and armed guards. Now even public buses aren’t safe for Jewish students?

  2. As long as I can remember, synagogues in the UK have had security guards on the door for services and Sunday school (cheder). Even in local authority school anti-Semitism happens and nothing happens to protect the children. Reporting it is useless. I hope that they catch the males that did this, I suspect that the driver knew them as he should not have allowed them on the bus and ought to have called the police once they were on.

    • Thanks Gillian and welcome to JDU.

      They already have 6 or 7 of the boys. One mother took her son to the police. Most of them are known to the police and there is CCTV footage from the bus.

  3. the abc this morning said they received overwhelming messages saying…wait for it….those girls were lucky they only had people shouting at them and that they were not living in gaza where they would have been bombed!

  4. Re the statement “No reasonable person will suggest that all criticism of Israel is antisemitic”.

    This is repeated ad nauseum, but let’s face it, nearly all criticism of Israel IS antisemitic. It’s not being unreasonable to assert that, as many antisemites use the cover of anti-Zionism, to hide their antisemitism.

  5. If the story was true all the bus driver had to do was drive to the Police Station nearby. If these young hoodlems were drunk where did they get the alcohol and why were they not at school. About time people did not listen to what drunks say. If they were drunk they would not have been allowed on the bus. Hope taxpayers are not paying for security and it is out of the school fees. If story is genuine photograph these young louts and name their school.

      The only reason for approving this comment is because it is ludicrous.

      Let’s go through the points one by one.
      “all the bus driver had to do was drive to the Police Station nearby”
      No doubt being a bus driver he didn’t have your brain power!!
      Use your head. He probably didn’t think of it and there is no police station on the route he drives. No doubt he wasn’t from the area, like you are, and didn’t know where the station was.

      “young hoodlems were drunk where did they get the alcohol”
      OMG. No comment.

      “why were they not at school.”
      Another OMG. It was after school, that’s how come it was a school bus.Some were in school uniform, that’s why the driver stopped. They had tried to get on board another bus and the driver didn’t stop because clearly he saw an issue. Other kids had encountered them walking along and also verified they were drunk.

      “About time people did not listen to what drunks say.”
      Now I know you have an issue.
      You are talking about young children who were being threatened with death.

      “If story is genuine photograph these young louts and name their school.”
      What school did you go to? If any?
      The story is genuine. The police released them to their parents as they were too drunk to interview. One youth, the police ddn’t get, his mother handed him in.
      The mind boggles here. Do you live in this country or not? Under 18 they cannot be named.

      ” Hope taxpayers are not paying for security and it is out of the school fees.”

      OH, BTW your antisemitism is showing and don’t show your face around here again.

  6. This isn’t for pubilcation …….BUT….Does anyone know if the bus driver has a specific religious affiliation?

    • On the photo he looks like any ordinary bloke on the street.

      There appears to be some confusion around the story. I know two people whose children got on the bus at the last stop, Moriah College, which was the stop after these two individuals.

      He says he has no idea what was going on. Which to be honest with you, I can believe, as school bus drivers tend to close their ears to what is going on. I know from my own grandchildren that the behavior of many children on school buses is abominable.Then apparently one child told him and he told her to sit down.

      So who knows?

  7. Joe in Australia

    Can someone clarify if this was a public bus (i.e., for any passengers); a public bus for schoolchildren only; a bus for students at Jewish schools only, or what? I keep seeing it described differently. And were there other passengers on board at the time?
