    The Book of Esther is a book in the Ketuvim ("writings"), the third section of the Jewish Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible) and is part of the Christian Old Testament. It tells the story of a Jewish girl named Hadassah and Esther. Esther became queen of Persia and thwarted a plan to commit genocide against her people. Also called the Megillah, the book is the basis and an integral part of the Jewish celebration of Purim. Its full text is read aloud twice during the celebration, in the evening and again the following morning. Scrolls of Esther traditionally have only one roller on the left side, as opposed to most other Biblical scrolls such as the Sefer Torah, which have two rollers, one on each side.[1]
    Besides Song of Songs, it is the only book in the Bible that does not explicitly mention God.[2]

I’m sure that many middle-class American Jews celebrated Purim in similar fashion. I’m also fairly sure that most middle-class American Jews are unaware that Purim has long been “celebrated” in a very different manner by ultra-nationalist Jews in Israel.

    'Last week on the day after Purim, it was reported that a Palestinian woman was attacked by ultra-orthodox women at a light rail station in Kiryat Moshe, Jerusalem. According to the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman walked by the Palestinian woman and began punching her. Others soon joined in the attack and eventually tore off her hijab. According to the report, the light rail security guard, as well as some 100 religious Israeli men, stood by and did nothing. Eyewitness Dorit Yarden Dotan, who was horrified by the violence and took photos of the beating with her telephone, reported that the security guard even “watched and smiled”. “It was simply terrible,” she added.



    'By the way, this was not the only act of Purim violence this year. On the same day as the Jerusalem attack, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, Hassan Usruf (right), was attacked by drunken Jewish youths whom police suspect had been participating in Purim celebrations during the evening ...

    'Those who follow the news must surely know that this kind of Jewish violence against Palestinians have become an annual inevitability in Israel. The most infamous Purim moment, of course, occurred in 1994, when Baruch Goldstein walked into the Cave of Machpelah in Hevron wearing an Israeli army uniform and opened fire on Palestinian worshipers, killing 29 and wounding more than 125. By committing this act of mass murder, Goldstein believed he was fulfilling the the Book of Esther, which describes the slaughter of seventy five thousand Persians at the hands of the Jews. Since that time, Goldstein has become venerated by ultra-orthodox, ultra-nationalist Jews and for rest of us, Purim as never been quite the same.'

    Not many here realize that's it's these fanatics who are becoming more and more accepted in Israel:

    Fundamentalism into the mainstream - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Because the fanatics are in charge, as Uri Avnery describes. He discusses the controversy over recent rabbinical rulings, beginning with pointed examples showing how such things go completely against the grain of contemporary Western culture:

    She shouldn't have been palestinian, she was deserving of her beating. One would think that of all people's on earth, Israeli's would be the most benevolent.

    Funny this thread is revived and lies told....yawn....more anti-Jewish bigotry.

    The kids' costumes were in bad taste as was the New York Jerk who dressed in black face and guess what many many many Jews said so. Being Jewish doesn't mean you can't also be an asshole.

    Violence on Purim is a funny story here though because historically Purim and Pesach (Passover) were times of the year where christians killed jews on a regular basis egged on by clergy. Chapter 9 of the Purim story is ugly...lots of death....but that is how the stories were rendered back then.

    As for the attack on the Palestinian woman cited. It appears it had nothing to do with Purim but an conflict that got violent.

    J'lem: Arab woman attacked by Jewish women - Israel News, Ynetnews

    The Yeshiva World Jewish Female Arrested as Suspect in Assault Against Arab Women at Light Rail Station « » Frum Jewish News

    The Yeshiva World Two Additional Arrests in Jerusalem Attack Against Arab Woman « » Frum Jewish News

    Again it is a year old and condemned even by leaders in the Jewish community there.

    So.............

    As I said a year ago, I think, that bad taste is inexcusable and that it should not matter one iota if this had been a picture of kids at halloween or at purim. The festival and the religious identity is not relevant for me. Now it would be different if this had been made by an enemy of the USA as an image to insult or hurt feelings but this is just a problem IMHO of bad taste.

    The hatred for Israel is steeped in one basic fact: All of the Middle East, with its endless cultural failures, can't rise up and even give Israel a decent fight, and it pains them to no end. The Jews have built, from a literally nothing, a nation that is infinitely more successful, refined, and sophisticated, in a matter of a few decades, what the rest of the Middle East has failed to achieve in five millennia.
