The World

November 21, 1986

Ultra-Orthodox Jews, protesting the murder of a Jewish student, Eliyahu Amedi, in Jerusalem's Arab Old City, beat a member of Parliament with sticks and hurled firebombs in a Palestinian neighborhood, police said. "They attacked me with sticks and called me a Nazi," said Ran Cohen, a member of the leftist Citizens' Rights Movement. Cohen told Israel radio that he was on his way to make a condolence call on Amedi's family when attacked. Police said there was no damage from the firebombs. One person was arrested.
