Jerusalem Arabs attacked the Light Rail train Monday morning as it passed through the northern Arab neighborhood of Shuafat.

The attackers hurled rocks at the train – as they did a number of times last week — but failed to cause damage.

The Light Rail returned to full service on Monday for the first time after a series of vicious attacks against the Light Rail in Shuafat on August 25 caused heavy damage and terrified passengers.

The cars underwent extensive repairs and repainting before being returned to service.

The day before the start of Operation Protective Edge, the Light Rail was the target of choice for Arab rioters in Shuafat, who completely destroyed the infrastructure for three stops in their neighborhood and the nearby neighborhood of Beit Hanina. They vowed the rail would never be able to run through their area again.

Numerous students and teachers ride the Light Rail in order to travel between their homes and yeshivas in the center of town and northern Jerusalem neighborhoods.

  1. Jerusalem Arabs or Muslims?

  2. Stop repairing the tracks that go to the Arab neighborhoods ! If I lived in Jerusalem I would arrange for people to protest along the tracks to prevent the continual repairs your Jerusalem taxes are paying for! Put that money to better use.

  3. Nothing modern is for arabs! They like only junk and sh*t!

  4. Arabs don*t deserve to be treated right as long as they don*t treat others with respect!

  5. Jeff Batter says:

    Sad, as they’ve been raised from birth to hate Jews, and believe all the lies that have been drummed into their heads. Ironic, as they live better and except for limits in place only because of security threats that they created, have more freedom and quality of life than they would living in any of their neighboring countries.

  6. They don’t like nothing good, they are hateful people

  7. The Light Rail train car I was on yesterday had two cracked windows from rocks.

  8. They are the same, Jerusalem arabs are muslims.

  9. Ok, no more service there!

  10. Stop the trains going through there naborhoods. They are too ignorant to appreciate what they have. They think like the 3terrorist members of the Kneset.

  11. Either their own people rein in these criminals or the neighborhood shd lose valuable service. Let’s see who’s the winner here

  12. What else do you expect from primitive Arab Camel Jockeys?!

  13. Terrorist should not use trains., let them walk., as slow as their thinking..
