Jewish backpackers tortured for hours in Argentinian hostel

Ten Israeli tourists have been robbed, beaten and burned in a four hour-long anti-Semitic attack at a hostel in southern Argentina.

The attackers shouted ‘f******* jews’ at the group and accused them of ‘trying to take over Patagonia’ as they pelted them with stones and fired a shotgun round at a cabin during the ordeal.

Police called to the incident 45 minutes after the attack began had to withdraw because they were unable to control the situation – one was hospitalized with a broken jaw and two lost teeth.

    Something to keep in mind next time someone suggests the Zionists find a new homeland.

      It’s not just Israelis. They also chased out some BBC guys over the Falkslands War, just a few months ago.

      There’s a reason Argentina is a second-rate country. And this is part of the problem.

        Hey. Just a minute! The pope is from Argentina, isn’t he? That explains his views on freedom of expression. ‘If you don’t like what someone says or thinks, punch him.’

          Good point.

    Sounds like George Galloway owns a hostel

    This should do wonders for any attempts to attract tourists.

      Perhaps the Falkland Islanders should build a few backpacker hostels.

    Argentina, hide-out of Nazis. This is beyond belief. Is this how far we have come? which is to say…no distance at all from pre-Nuremburg?

    Note to self: don’t visit Argentina.
