Santa Attacked in Israel.

Again, can you imagine the coverage if the corresponding incident happened in the US?

Thugs set upon man wearing Santa costume

He's Jewish in every way, but on New Year's Eve, Alexei Shtukin (42) decided to dress up as Santa Clause "just for fun," and paid for his decision dearly.

He was set upon by a gang of youths at the Dome nightclub in Tel Aviv, and beaten in front of his family. Youths were heard shouting, "dead Christian."

Alexei and his wife had decided to head to the Dome night club in south Tel Aviv, in order to pick up their daughter, Dasha (14), who was celebrating the New Year.

"We went inside to look for her, and then someone yelled: 'Santa Clause.'"

Alexei was convinced that the shout was one of enthusiasm, but was proved bitterly wrong.

The costume, as he immediately found out, was like a red sheet placed in front of a bull, and drew the rage of revelers. It started with a kick to the head and the pulling off of his hat.

"I bent down to pick up the hat, and then a group jumped on me. All I wanted at that time was to take my daughter and wife and get out of there in peace," he said.
