Ribaforada, Spain - Spanish Authorities Arrest Female Foreign National For Inciting Violence Against Jews
Ribaforada, Spain - A 28-year-old foreign national living in Ribaforada, Spain has been arrested for posting videos online intended to incite violence against Jews.
El Diario reports (http://bit.ly/1MpzK92) that the unnamed woman uploaded several videos calling for the “extermination of Jews,” while also encouraging viewers to “catch and kill all the Jews,” and “exterminate the Zionists.”
In one video, three women dressed in Muslim clothing, chant, “Catch and kill all the Jews. Strike them and make the Jews bleat like the animals. Exterminate the Zionists. Exterminate them, exterminate them, the world will be better off,” all while one woman stabs a doll resembling an Orthodox Jew.
Authorities said the woman was arrested due to the “brutality of the content” she posted, which, according to the Spanish Ministry of the Interior, generated thousands of views. In defense of the woman, Spanish media said her videos were a parody of a similar work, entitled “Kill All the Jews, Gaza Girls Hit Single” created by Israeli media personality Orit Arfa.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) praised the arrest, but said nothing else is being done to address increasing anti-Semitism in Europe. An ADL survey taken last year revealed that 29 percent of Spanish people surveyed held anti-Semitic views, while 65 percent said Jews have more loyalty to Israel than their home countries, and 53 percent said Jews have too much power in the business sector.
