'Jews have $': Yeshiva thugs
Armed bandits who invaded a yeshiva dormitory in Queens and forced eight students into a bedroom at gunpoint claimed to be Muslim and angrily barked to the victims, "Jews have money," sources said yesterday.
The terrifying robbery occurred at around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, when the two men knocked on the dormitory door at Yeshiva Zichron Aryeh in Far Rockaway, saying their car broke down, sources said.
Then they stuck the gun against the neck of a student, Yisrooel Sterns, 19, and forced their way into the house on Mott Avenue house in the Bayswater section.
"'You guys are bunch of Jewish kids. Where is everything?' " one thug snarled, Sterns said. Before they left, one thug reportedly said, "I have nothing against you guys. I'm religious, too. I'm Muslim."
