National Union MKs Demand Defense of Jews on Mount of Olives

National Union MKs Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari toured eastern Jerusalem’s A-Tur neighborhood on Sunday afternoon in an attempt to highlight the need for security in the area, famous for housing the millennia-old Mount of Olives cemetery.

Ben Ari and Eldad called on police to provide better protection for Jews in the area, which is part of the municipality of Israel’s capital.

The Mount of Olives has been the site of several recent rock attacks against Jews by Arab residents.  Attacks have been launched against young children, as well as US congressmen in the area on tour.

No violence was reported during the National Union MKs’ tour.  However, 50 police officers were positioned along their travel route, to thwart attacks.
