Two student from Yeshiva Beit Orot on the Mount of Olives were injured Friday night when Arab terrorists set upon them as their group of 8 unarmed students were walking to their Yeshiva, coming back from the nearby Beit Hachoshen where they went for evening prayers.

The Choshen is a building on top of the Mount of Olives where 5 families reside, and has a hall that is serves as a local synagogue. It is a 15 minutes walk from Beit Orot.

One of the Jewish students, age 24, was slashed in the back with knife, a second, age 21, suffered a head injury from a metal pole wielded by the group of Arab terrorists. At least one Molotov Cocktail was also thrown at the group, and just barely missed hitting them.

The group of student, including the two wounded Yeshiva students ran the rest of the way back to the Yeshiva, and MDA ambulances transported them to Shaarei Tzedek hospital where they were stitched up. They were listed in lightly injured condition.

Residents of the area are angry that there wasn’t an active police presence on the A-Tur road, where numerous attacks against Jews and tourists repeatedly happen.

Just before Shabbat, according to Jerusalem councilman Arieh King, the local police commander announced a curfew for Jewish residents of the area, stating that any Jews found walking outside in Mount of Olives areas would be arrested. No such astounding announcement was made for the violent Arabs.

Yishai Fleisher, a local resident and JewishPress.com contributing editor told JewishPress.com that the residents will continue to walk the roads of Jerusalem, and the police had better get their act together, “The police need to defend our rights to walk the streets of Jerusalem, not curtail them.”

Yishai adds, the police didn’t place an actual general curfew on the residents from going outside, but unconditionally “forbade” the students from leaving via the back, southern gate of Beit Orot which leads only into Arab areas where rioting is happening.

  1. This is the kind of thing that should be expected when you have a population that is prone to violence and they learn that there are no consequences for their actions. Unfortunately, the Israeli police are treating the Jews in Israel the same way that the British did during the Mandate days.

  2. Pens make really good weapons. Two pens driven through each eye or into the ears can kill. They can definitely blind or render someone hearing impaired. The same thing works with pens driven up nostrils. Jewish students regular carry these weapons. Time to fight back.

  3. Time these Yeshiva students were taught martial arts. And they should get themselves some fierce dogs which they could leave with someone outside the synagogue when they go to pray.

  4. I failed to read anything regarding the police attempting to find the gang of would be murderers. Why? If Jews are not able to walk the streets of Jerusalem, why should non-Jews have that right.!!
    Arab would be murderers should be treated as if they were sucessful.It is the only language they understand. If they want to die, mhelp them in their quest.

  5. BASSAM KAIF KFOURI ESCAPED GAZA TO ESCAPE ILLEGALLY TO MONTREAL CANADA HE LIVES AT 2525A HAVRE DES ILES LAVAL QUEBEC..THE MOSSAD IS LOOKING FOR HIM…HE LIVES IN APT 803 FAKED HIS WAY THROUGH IMMIGRATION WITH FAKE PASSPORT AND PAPERS WHICH THEY SELL IN GAZA …FIENDS!

  6. I wish them all a speedy recovery. If we start doing what is being done in other countries overrun with militant Muslims, we will never be at peace. Apparently there are no go areas for local police in Muslim areas in France, Britain and even the US. They are taking over and installing sharia law in countries that have other laws and No one is stopping them! When did they become a protected species?

  8. To those who criticize the mayor for firing all arab workers, if this does not educate you to follow same, them best you hire the arabs to work for you and live in danger for your family and not for the rest of Israel.

    As the Jordanians removed the Jews in 1948, it is time that since the Jews returned to send to Jordan TODAY all of the Arabs that they left behind!

    These arabs only serve as infilitrators for the Jordan and disrupts Jewish lives so by sending them all back, let them be the Jordanian problem and their queen take care of them.
    Arabs do not educate their vagabond kids so they have nothing to do but to throw rocks and play soccer without learning basic education to make something out of themselves.

  9. what are you talking about????? An Israeli Police hero just gave his life to protect these yeshiva people last week and others have risked their lives to stop this massacre… why don't u learn the truth before blaming everyone and before trashing people who can teach you the first thing about protecting bravery and sacrifices.
    Shame on all of you who sit at the comfort of their homes complaining and blaming others.
    Disgusting to read these stupid comments.
    Worthless opinions .

  10. Sarah Talmi – You are correct that the terrorists were put down this time, but for every time that there is a terror incident where there are consequences, there are at least 10 where there are none. There are stone throwings and molotov cocktails and damage to public and private facilities and so many others that go unpunished. I see it every day here in Israel. Not only that, but in all too many of them, for instance, when Jews wish to go up to the Temple Mount, then when the Arabs act up, the police ban the Jews. That encourages terror.

  11. Daniel Friedman .. and you believe Israeli Policemen's lives are to be take lightly because someone's believe is to go to this or another holly site? Are these men and women's lives less holly than these religious rituals to you?
    These discussions are so not grounded in today's reality. What else would it take to drill to some fanatic believers' minds that someone is saying with their lives for this and that is not to be taken so lightly or disrespectfully.
    From all that I know, Jewish religion is all about respecting and sanctifying LIFE first. ≈ everything else is a mean to do so. There is nothing in the Jewish religion holier and more important and or worth risking one's LIFE.

  12. Sarah Talmi I really do not want to argue about this, but it is the police's job to make sure that it is safe for everyone to go everywhere. To abandon any area to terrorists just encourages more terror. And we certainly should not be abandoning our most important places to terror. Otherwise people like you would be saying that if we did not defend those places then why are we defending less important places. As we have seen repeatedly, more lives are lost in the long run when you allow the hooligans to take over.
