Violent Arabs Again Target Jerusalem Light Rail

Jerusalem Arabs are continuing to target the Jerusalem Light Rail in violence intended to ensure the transit system will “never pass through Shuafat,” a northern Arab suburb of the capital.

Shuafat is also home to the family of 16 year old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, who was murdered last week. Six Jewish suspects have been taken into custody in connection with the case, and three have reportedly confessed to the crime.

Three Light Rail stops were utterly destroyed last week by Arab rioters, despite the fact that the rail is used by Arab commuters on a daily basis, as well as Jews, to reach their jobs in the city.

Nevertheless, extremist Arabs have said they are determined to destroy the Light Rail’s infrastructure to ensure the rail system cannot pass through Shuafat “ever.” Officials, meanwhile, have said it will take months to repair the damage to the stops once the violence has ceased.

The route of the Jerusalem Light Rail currently ends at Ammunition Hill (Givat HaTachmoshit), as it is no longer possible to use the infrastructure at Shuafat and Beit Hanina. This also cuts off access for the numerous Jewish residents who live in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Neve Yaakov.

  1. They are the only animals that foul their own nest. All utilities and public transportation should no longer serve them.

  2. Ariel Claude says:

    That’s fine…instead of progress, they want to regress. Perhaps they should remove toilets in their homes.

  3. Carolin Knox says:

    Their property and homes should be sold to pay for damages.

  4. Zvi Fink says:

    they don’t use toilets for religious reasons. They just have a hole in the floor leading to the sewage system

  5. remove them from Jerusalem…all

  6. Anyone with half a brain knew that this was inevitable. You can not show one ounce of kindness to monsters without hurting ourselves

  7. Use the Arabs as targets. Simple.

  8. They are stupid. They are hurting the Arabs that work and use the rail to get to work. There is nothing you can with a bunch of brain dead people .

  9. Raymond Felx says:

    Wow, their homes must really reek! But I guess if you can handle all that camel dung you can handle anything!

  10. Aurel Iovitu says:

    one clearly can see that their brains remained stuck in the eraly 1800’ies, the same reaction as the laborers in England that first saw the steam machines that were installed in the factories in order to help them – they started to smash them. And because these thugs are young people the logical conclusion isthat this is the main stream education that they receive from their parents and spiritual advisors (title does not matter). They are not fanatic, they are plain idiots, they strive to live at the shadows of their donkeys/mules and send their veiled women to clean the toilet after them. OK, stop light railway from passing that neighborhood and let these “whatever they think they are” explain to normal citizens why they can’t go to work in a civilized transportation means. Don’t arrest them, pack them and send them to the nearest caliphate location to play mortal kombat with the sunnis.

    the arabs who work will have to walk to work because the train was the only means of transportation,the arab community have no garbage pickup because they kept attacking the truck drivers, their cities look like a dump
