Jews Move into Hevron ‘Peace House’ 5 Years after Expulsion

The government’s approval of Jews moving into the Hebron building marks a return to a bit of political normalcy.

Finally, the Supreme Court is beginning to decide cases based on legal issues and not  on the basis of their personal political agenda.

The Peace House is located on the road from Kiryat Arba to the Patriarchs Cave. For the Arabs who do not want Jews in Hebron, it is a symbol that turns them into a rage.

The fear of Arab anger has been one of the foundations of the IDF’s  and the Defense Ministry’s ruling against Jews and in favor Arabs.

That policy still is in effect at the Temple Mount, where all the Arabs have to do is should “Allah Akbar” and throw some rocks and firebombs to convince the police to keep Jews out, as they did Sunday morning.
