Arab beats up Jewish girl at Brooklin school

The New York Post reports that a Jewish girl was beaten up by an Arab teenager in a Brooklin school:

ARAB BEATS UP JEWISH GIRL AT B'KLYN SCHOOL December 17, 2002 -- Religious tensions erupted yesterday after authorities confirmed that an Arab girl beat up a Jewish girl at a Brooklyn middle school.

The Arab teen was arrested and suspended for the Dec. 12 attack on the 13-year-old Jewish girl, an honors student, at IS 259 in Dycker Heights, sources said.

"The investigation is ongoing. If there were any other people involved, they will be reprimanded as well," said Department of Education spokesman Kevin Ortiz.

Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who spoke with the victims' parents, said he believes the assault was bias-related - although it was not reported as a hate crime.

"The attack was the culmination of weeks of taunting and tormenting by this group, led by one particular Arab girl," Hikind said in a letter to Schools Chancellor Joel Klein.

"They were chanting, ‘Jew! Jew! Jew!' " Hikind added in an interview.

Hikind said the parents are considering transferring their daughter to private school.
