Cries of "Kill the Jews" overheard in Los Angeles, California

The Los Angeles Independent (www.laindependent.com) reports that a pack of anti-Semitic bastards kicked and beat up 2 people in Los Angeles, California. These braindead morons did this while screaming "Kill the Jews!":

Two Jewish patrons of Good Bar, a nightspot already under fire for poor security and numerous criminal incidents, were assaulted near the club early Sunday morning by 10 to 15 men in what officials at the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station are calling a hate crime.

Two men of Middle Eastern descent are in custody for allegedly pursuing the two victims coming out of the club and cornering them at the intersection of Doheny Road and Sunset Boulevard before kicking and hitting them, causing bruises, cuts and other minor injuries. [...]

At 1:55 a.m., the two Jewish men, both 25 years old and of Middle Eastern descent, left the 9229 Sunset Blvd. club and were walking to their car when the group of Middle Eastern men pursued them, screaming religious insults and threats.

The two victims tried to flee to their car, but were cornered and beaten before they escaped to a nearby apartment complex, Sierra Towers, where two security guards offered them protection. [...]

John Griffith, a resident of Sierra Towers, says he saw more than 20 men surrounding the two victims and witnessed five kicking and beating the victims, repeatedly chanting "Kill the Jews!"

The hostility and violence against Jews seems not to be omni-present in California. But that is simply because most of us don't have any external signs of being Jewish - if I was a religious Jew and wore a kippa, I am convinced some bleeding-brain leftists and Islamic fanatics would not hesitate in attacking me.

I copy the full article below - don't expect to find it in the Los Angeles Times nor the San Francisco Chronicle.

Calls for club's closure renewed after hate crime

Two Jewish patrons of Good Bar, a nightspot already under fire for poor security and numerous criminal incidents, were assaulted near the club early Sunday morning by 10 to 15 men in what officials at the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station are calling a hate crime.

Two men of Middle Eastern descent are in custody for allegedly pursuing the two victims coming out of the club and cornering them at the intersection of Doheny Road and Sunset Boulevard before kicking and hitting them, causing bruises, cuts and other minor injuries.

The District Attorney's Office plans to charge the two men with assault with a deadly weapon and violating civil rights, according to Deputy Don Mueller.

At 1:55 a.m., the two Jewish men, both 25 years old and of Middle Eastern descent, left the 9229 Sunset Blvd. club and were walking to their car when the group of Middle Eastern men pursued them, screaming religious insults and threats.

The two victims tried to flee to their car, but were cornered and beaten before they escaped to a nearby apartment complex, Sierra Towers, where two security guards offered them protection.

Police arrived in five minutes to break up the melee, and when the second unit came a short time later, the two suspects returned to the scene and were apprehended.

Although the incident occurred near Good Bar, the sheriffs don't know yet whether any violence occurred within the club, says Lt. Buddy Goldman.

"We don't know if anything occurred inside the bar," he says. "But it does appear that the security guard of Good Bar was our informant in this case."

John Griffith, a resident of Sierra Towers, says he saw more than 20 men surrounding the two victims and witnessed five kicking and beating the victims, repeatedly chanting "Kill the Jews!"

When the victims fled to seek safety with Sierra Towers' security guards, Griffith says, two suspects followed the men and threatened the guards with a metal pipe taken from a nearby sprinkler system and with fists, before the guards fought them off.

"It was the worst thing I have ever observed," Griffith says. "I kept screaming at them, but they were yelling so loudly they couldn't hear me. I kept yelling, 'I've called the cops.'

"They didn't budge, they just kept attacking these guys," he adds.

Griffith says the two victims told him that the assault started inside the club, where a group of men reportedly started chanting "Kill the Jews!" and began hitting the victims before they escaped out the front door.

But Mueller says he doesn't know of any violence inside the bar.

"Supposedly, [the victims] did run into the suspects inside the Good Bar, but I'm not aware of any incidents in there," he says.

Controversy over Good Bar has been brewing lately, despite the club's promise to give up its licenses and close shop by Jan. 2 .

The club has been linked in the last year to 12 felonies occurring on or near the property and has long been the source of ire for neighbors complaining about public urination, vandalism, drug use and fighting in the area

The West Hollywood Business License Commission last week held a hearing to consider suspending or revoking the bar's license in response to the neighbors' complaints and criminal activity.

In a 5-1 vote, the commissioners agreed to stay a 30-day suspension and ordered the club to hire at least two sheriffs' deputies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and to operate only Thursday through Saturday.

But the commission said if the bar fails to meet those conditions or experiences another serious criminal incident, West Hollywood's community development director, Mark Persico, can go ahead with the 30-day suspension, says Wade Davenport, code compliance manager.

"We're waiting right now for the actual written information from the sheriffs and then we will evaluate it," Davenport says.

Good Bar was hosting a "Persian event" at the club on Saturday night and was not the scene of any violence or religious insults, says the club's owner, Ivan Ulrich.

"There were absolutely no anti-Jewish insults, no nothing," he says. "There was no violence whatsoever."

He adds, "If this is true, if it was something political like that, then holding us responsible is pretty ridiculous."

The commission decided to stay the suspension, because to proceed with the action would invite an appeal to the City Council. An appeal would let the club continue operating until the next council meeting, says Commissioner Jim Kazakos.

"It would take at least two months for [the appeal] to be heard," he says. "And if they are closing Jan. 2, it just didn't make sense to me to antagonize them by shutting them down."

But Commissioner Joseph Guardarrama, who cast the sole dissenting vote, says he would rather have gone ahead with the 30-day suspension.

"I would have preferred that we would have voted for a suspension," he says, "because I think that essentially the message that we are sending...was that bars could have a horrible security record and when it came to a hearing all they had to agree was to beef up security and they will be allowed to continue operating."

Griffith, who observed the incident, feels the commission made the wrong choice.

"There's no question they should have shut them down last time they met," he says. "We showed them a videotape of several incidents. What else does it take?"

The Sheriff's Department has yet to receive a request from Good Bar for security personnel, Mueller says.
