Hasidic Jew On London Bombings
An e-mail message celebrating the London terror bombings from Isaac Horowitz of Rodney Street in Brooklyn, a self-described Hasidic "Jew," has been sent to members of the British Parliament and was also cited on the blog of the British newspaper, The Guardian. The e-mail message begins with these lines:
"14th July, 2005 To All Parliamentarians: As a Hasidic Jew, I was very happy that so many British were killed in the London bomb attacks on July 7. I hope that many of the survivors were blinded, lost limbs, and will suffer for the rest of their lives."
The letter goes on to portray the bombings as retribution for British anti-Semitism and specifically for the notorious massacre of the Jews of York: "What happened on July 7 in London was payback by G-d for the atrocities perpetrated against Jews in 1189. After all, a thousand-year wait for us is only a day for G-d (verse in Psalms, Tehillim)."
