Netanyahu: No Jews Allowed

Netanyahu: No Jews Allowed

Hebron Jews have long ago been barred from most of their city. Things are largely the same for the rest of the PA run areas.

These signs hang by one of the passageways between H1 and H2 zones in Hebron.

H2 zone comprises Jews and some 40 thousand Arabs.

H1 zone, which spreads over the vast majority of the city, has only Arab residents, and Jewish entrance into it is against the law.

These rules were sanctioned in the Protocol Concerning the Redeployment in Hebron, also known as The Hebron Protocol or Hebron Agreement.

The agreement was signed by Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Chairman Yasser Arafat, under the supervision of US Secretary of State Warren Christopher, and been in effect in the City of the Patriarchs since January 17, 1997.

The agreement called for redeployment of Israeli military forces in Hebron in accordance with the “Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip” “Oslo II” of September 1995.

As a result, Hebron Jews have been barred from many thousands of potential housing units, which could bring prosperity and growth to the oldest Jewish city in the world.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Netanyahu promised to bolster Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria by as many as 850 housing units.

Tarpat JunctionAbove: an earlier view of the signs, circa 2000, without the Jew-specific inscription. The signs mark the “1929 Junction,” which commemorates the 67 Jewish victims of the August 24, 1929 Hebron massacre that eventually decimated the Jewish community in the city. The community was resurrected after the city was liberated, in 1967.

  1. Stephen Leavitt says:

    Actually, in the original agreement it states:

    Holy Site

    Paragraphs 2 and 3(a) of Article 32 of Appendix 1 to Annex III of the Interim Agreement will be applicable to the following Holy Sites in Area H-1:

    The Cave of Othniel Ben Knaz/El-Khalil;.

    Elonei Mamre/Haram Er-Rameh;.

    Eshel Avraham/Balotat Ibrahim; and.

    Maayan Sarah/Ein Sarah.

    The Palestinian Police will be responsible for the protection of the above Jewish Holy Sites. Without derogating from the above responsibility of the Palestinian Police, visits to the above Holy Sites by worshippers or other visitors shall be accompanied by a Joint Mobile Unit, which will ensure free, unimpeded and secure access to the Holy Sites, as well as their peaceful use.

    Obviously, as Jews can't freely visit the above sites, it appears to be a breach of the agreement.

    This is outrageous! Antisemitism must end now!

  3. In Yeshua's name may all there efforts in antisemitism be thwarted.
