Baruch Hashem it turned out okay

Why

Pretty naïve comment

Why do you think it’s not?
We have to support our community. I’m hoping you would do the same if there’s a person that is causing harm to people especially in front of 770 where you have hundreds and thousands of Israeli students studying there don’t you think that would affect them and don’t you want to show that you care

Yes.
Every able adult including yourself should get themselves armed and trained on how and when to use and carry everywhere!
Like the law of the land says.
Then we don’t need to drain enormous community resources in outsourcing our security and it will be far more effective and available if chvs needed.
Remember how well guarded the Gaza area supposedly was? Imagine if every home was armed and ready instead of relying only on the security team? The terrorists wouldn’t stand a chance. A government that disarms it’s peaceful citizens is complicit when they get slaughtered.

We want moshiach now

The erliche yid has no idea that his “we want moshiach now ” said daily, has helped tremendously now. The darkness subdued with his little lit!💪

Chanting Free Palestine

Chanting Free Palestine in the UK is not a crime. I thought in the US everyone has the right to freedom of expression speech and the right to protest. Yes it maybe unpleasant but it still a public area.

Bot?

To their credit, The Russians would never tolerate this kind of anti semitism in Russia.
Wake up, you have been propagandized!
Ask anybody living in Russia…

Seriously don’t care about that. Freedom of speech and expression exist but there’s a consequence for every action and anything you say so I do not agree with you and I think that comment is pretty naïve, especially in a community that was affected by the slaughter, rape and kidnap of our fellow brothers and sisters in Israel and this is a literal sense

How Jewish! Always coming in the defence of your attacker! Us Jews are professional at that! someone came to harass YOU and you still find the need to give reasons to make them technically innocent!

Too naive

How about chanting free Israel (from every Arab)? Raaaaasict! Genooooocide! Apartheid!
See how that works?
It’s only socially acceptable against Jews. Isn’t it?
This is classic Marxist-lenist ideology, where all is justified but only for the supposedly protected underclass whoever they may be.
It’s class based rules that is not individualized based on merit.

This shouldn't fly
December 6, 2023 8:18 pm

This guy should have been taken care of and left somewhere unconscious in a different neighborhood. Everyone standing around like a bunch of sheep.

Not the Torah way

That’s not our way. That’s what the other side would do..

The world respects the IDF for a reason.

Question
December 6, 2023 8:35 pm

Were there gunshots fired?

It’s time
December 6, 2023 9:07 pm

To protect 770 appropriately.
We have to think what’s in our enemies brains. We need to have revealed and hidden security in every entrance including union st. I hope someone will pickup this thought and act accordingly

the creep never had a chance
December 6, 2023 9:21 pm

Please note that this creep really picked his locale to chant his disgusting slogans. According to your article, within a few minutes TWENTY police cars arrived to arrest this one lunatic.

decoy?

December 8, 2023 9:55 am

Why 20 cars for one unarmed lunatic? What if he was a decoy and CV”S something worse had been arranged to happen in a different location and all the police were already by 770
?

I agree with him.
Free Gaza from Hamas and their supporters!
And while we are at it free the united states from these bloodthirsty violent thugs too!
And lastly wouldn’t it be great if COL would free our eyes from seeing this garbage?
Thanks in advance
