Meah Shearim, Israel - Three ultra-Orthodox Jews allegedly have confessed to beating and stabbing a man in Jerusalem because he was Arab one year ago, and then fled the scene, Israeli authorities said.

The suspects, two of whom are minors, were brought before the Jerusalem Magistrates’ Court today for a hearing on the remand of their arrest.

Police believe that on December 3, 2008, the teens wearing yarmulkes walked up to an Arab man in Meah Shearim and asked him for the time, in order to ascertain that he was indeed of Arab descent.

When he answered they sprayed pepper spray in his eyes, beat him and stabbed him, and afterwards fled the scene, police suspect.

The victim, 31-year old Hamed Hamed from Shuafat, was taken to the hospital in critical condition, where he died of his wounds. Police immediately announced that the stabbing had been nationalistically motivated and established a special team to investigate.

A day later two teens were arrested and released following questioning. The three youths currently in custody were arrested three weeks ago and the court cleared their case for publication Tuesday, when police demanded the third remand of their arrest.

Officers claim the three suspects, a 22-year-old and two 17-years-olds, have admitted to the charges against them. They are scheduled to be indicted in the coming days.

They do more harm to Jews and Yiddishkeit than Hitler or 5 million Arabs ever could.

According to your logic, the same applies to the settler movement that riles up the arabs. Where were you until now?

Why should we imitate their obnoxious animal behaviors? You are wrong, my friend We should NOT imitate them, nor should we imitate any improper behaviors of other people. Never forget you have a higher standard.

I'm not sure what VIN's definition of Ultra- orthodox is. These guys were not the normal yishiva buchor or yerushalmie. At most they were once ultra orthodox.

Although, I am with you in the hope that these murderers sit in jail for their natural life, but it would be a dereliction of my Jewish duty not to admonish you for your vulgar example, nobody ever could come close to Hitler Y’SY

Really? Brother i know this is the internet and people exaggerate to bring home a point, but really? "They do more harm to Jews and Yiddishkeit than Hitler or 5 million Arabs ever could" Smarten up Avi, its obvious that your family did not face the evil that was hitler (have him burn for all eternity) but mine did, so have a little compassion. Please have a little heart and use a wee bit of your brain the next time you post.

It sounds like you were never taught what Hitler did, and you don't know what the arabs want to do. Shame on you!

I knew a survivor who lost his entire family. He walked two miles to shul, each way, every shabbos. Twice. Until he passed away in his 70s. That's the kind of Jew Hitler created.

In contrast, these so-called Frum Jews are the product of the modern Yeshiva system. Full of hate and fully capable of cold-blooded murder. What kind of Jew do you think they create?

There's 2 sides to every story. Were the boys acting in self-defense?
We don't have enough info to jump to conclusions, and of course this is just what the world loves to hear.

Umm, Chaya, they confessed to it. And they confessed to doing it just because he was a random person of Arabic descent.

Sometimes there aren't two sides to every story. This is one of those times. They did evil. It really is as simple as that.
