A young man beat up a Moroccan rov in the economic capital of Casablanca over Israel’s deadly air war on Gaza. Tel Quel said on its website that the attack took place on Friday as Rav Moshe Ohayon was walking towards his shul.
The unidentified assailant asked: “Are you Jewish? What’s the Tsahal (Israeli army) doing to our brothers?”
Rav Ohayan said he was punched to the ground and then pummeled until he lost consciousness. “I have lodged a complaint and am waiting to see what happens,” he said.

Moroccan authorities had no immediate comment on the incident, which took place hours before a demonstration held in Casablanca in solidarity with the Palestinians.
