For the past four months, the Jewish residents of the Nof Tzion neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem have been suffering from repeated stone attacks, carried out by Arabs from the neighboring Jabel Mukaber. The residents have approached the police on the issue numerous times; the police have been unable to gain control of the situation. These attacks occur every few days, endangering the lives of the ninety families living there. In most cases, the incidents end with damage to cars or property, but last month a ten tear old girl was wounded by stones while playing in the backyard with her friends, requiring stitches to her head.

There has lately been a general increase in terrorist activity in the Jerusalem vicinity, and the residents of Nof Tzion are experiencing it as well. In this case, there is a direct correlation between the attacks and the opening of a new high school in Jabel Mukaber, situated right above Nof Tzion. Arab students throw stones and objects at the homes, and damage the cars in the parking lot. A smashed car is found every few days.

The police were notified about the incidents. Their response was to ask the residents to install security cameras and to join the Civil Guard. They did as they were told at a cost of thousands of Shekels. The cameras documented the attacks, and the footage was passed on to the police. The police claimed they could not identify anyone from the footage, stating they could not ensure the residents safety every moment of the day.

In a recent incident, a resident’s car was hit, and when a few Jewish youths blocked the roads in response, the police finally showed up.

One of the residents reported that Arab youths come to the kindergarten and kick the Jewish kids out, chanting “Slaughter the Jews.”

The residents speak of a general fear to walk freely in the neighborhood. They feel they have been abandoned by the police.

The police have stated that they are working continuously to catch the culprits, adding that only four incidents have been logged over the past four months.

    Of all people, why do the Jews in Israel put up with this. Israel builds the arabs a school and this is their show of appreciation. No peace is possible with thees hate infused people. Show all of them the door!

  2. JoAnn Morris says:

    If this is happening on a regular basis, why not place 24 hr. security there until this is stopped.

  3. Rc Fowler says:

    Its time for Israelis to wise up and realize–they can't depend upon the police to protect them–they must do it themselves!

    Israeli Jews must seek out training and arm themselves!

  4. John Cerny says:

    Israeli police is used by Barack for harrasing not protecting Jewish citizens.

  5. John Cerny says:

    Time for founding Israeli Defence Legion!

  6. Anastasia Klein says:

    Jews: fight back. Obviously the police won't help you. They are useless. FIGHT BACK with a vengence.

  7. PICK UP THE STONES AND THROW THEM BACK!
