A Melbourne, Australia Rabbi was forced to defend himself from a man screaming “go back to Israel” and “swear to Allah” outside a synagogue Saturday.
The incident occurred outside the Adass Synagogue in Elsternwick and a video was posted to the IDF Training Facebook page.
In the clip, an agitated man can be seen screaming at the Jewish man to “go back to Israel”.
“I am from Australia,” the Jewish man responded.
Tensions boil over when man in the red t-shirt tries to grab the other man around the neck and is tackled by a group of onlookers in religious dress. The group calmly hold the man down until police arrived.
