Eyewitness to Rock Attack on Congressmen Speaks Out

March 1, 2012  

Ariel Pulver, an assistant to Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely, was part of the group that was attacked by rock throwers last Friday on February 24th. Pulver, who is also a licensed tour guide and deputy director of Likud Anglos, spoke to Israel National Radio‘s Tamar Yonah Show about the incident. 

“We were walking down the steps and all of the sudden, we hear this commotion. It all happened in a matter of seconds. Two Arab youth standing behind a green dumpster started throwing rocks. Two Border Patrol soldiers came and apprehended them. The rocks were actually brought to the congressmen to bring back to America to show people and tell them that rocks can kill. They’re not just ‘fruity pebbles’.”  

“Back in December 1990, Ed Koch was actually hit by a rock in the head while he was touring the Old City of Jerusalem. He was quoted as joking, ‘I know the stone wasn’t meant for me because everyone likes me.’ But the fact is, the stone was definitely meant for him. These rocks are thrown at us because we are Jews. I don’t know if these youth understood they were throwing them at congressmen, but what they understood was they were throwing them at Jews.”
