Arabs Attack Jewish Homes in Jerusalem’s Old City

The real “peace talks” are taking place in areas such as the Old City of Jerusalem, where Arabs threw Molotov cocktails and rocks at two Jewish homes Tuesday night. A guard was lightly wounded.

A mob of Arabs attacked two Jewish homes in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem Tuesday night, wounding a security guard in his eye and causing property damage.

One home, known as the “Flowers House” because of its location near Herod’s Gate, also known as Flower’s Gate, was attacked from two directions with at least two Molotov cocktails and firecrackers.

The wounded guard suffered from shrapnel in his eye and was evacuated to the Shaarei Tzedek hospital. The fire ignited by the projectiles caused property damage but other security guards at the scene were able to extinguish it.

A resident of the Flowers House told Tazpit News Agency that when security forces arrived and began searching for the attackers, Arabs began attacking the nearby “Emet House” with rocks.

Police were at the scene but did not carry out any arrests.

“This is not the first time we have been attacked like this,” said the resident, who asked to remain anonymous. “This was clearly a coordinated attack, involving two attacking groups and scouts. We do not live with a true sense of security here, but I understand that I serve as an emissary, and like on the frontier, if I am not here no Jews will be, and therefore I am not only here for myself.”

She expressed satisfaction with the security guard’s decisive response last night, but criticized the police. “Even when they arrest armed suspects they release them for what they claim is a lack of evidence.”

A police spokesperson confirmed that the attack occurred and that the guards fired warning shots in the air. He added that police are searching for the attackers.

Palestinian Authority media did not report the attacks but the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency did inform tis readers that Israeli police “demolished a room” in the nearby Silwan Valley.

  1. David Baden says:

    Israel made a big mistake in not expelling all non Christian Arabs from Jerusalem in 1967. Now it is paying the price,

  2. This attack should make Israeli law which gives those Arabs full citizenship when and if they pledge loyalty to Israel.
    Any Arab who refuses to do so., should be expelled.
    They can go and live with Abbas, who has stated that no Jew or Israeli would be allowed to live in a PA state.
    So he should take those who are not loyal to Israel, with open arms.
    There are many Arabs who are loyal to israel, and they should be supported.
    Those Arabs living in Israel, have the highest standard of living, of any Arab country. They have full freedom of religion, and do not fear being arrested or killed as is happening in every Arab state.

  3. an even bigger mistake was handing the keys to the Temple Mount over to islamics..the world is paying the price for that one and Israel is ground zero for jihad..May G*D have mercy on our souls

  4. William Kohn says:

    Moshe Dayan's real legacy. Running to the Waqf when they were ready to run to him and hand over the keys just to assure them that they remained in charge. But why be surprised — after all, if it was up to Dayan the IDF would never have entered and liberated the Old City. And let's not forget Levi Ehskol's inability or refusal to countermand Dayan.

  5. Joseph Colen says:

    Israelis have to get rid of Arabs in Jerusalem if you want to stop this. The aim is for young Jews to attack the Arabs there.

  6. Kill them, don't put in jails, no more.

  7. happytobeajew says:

    we NEED LEADERSHIP—from both sides.killing one anlother will solve nothing—only cause sadness and fleeting moments of satisfaction. WHERE ARE THE YOUNG LEADERS who have been educated abroad and who are for peaceful solutions. BOTH SIDES—-must have such people—are they talking with one another or are ARAB THUGS controlling them,too?

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    remove Arabs and the mosques from Jerusalem and toss them to the sea.

  9. KESSHET MILLMAN
    We have the one eyed genral, Dayan to thank for this.
    He, on his own bat, told the WAKF that they can control the Temple Mount.
    Had he told the WAKF that Israel will control the Moun t, there would have been no problems with Jews ever praying on the Mount.
