Arab Rock Throwing on Temple Mount and Jerusalem

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Tuesday – Arab rioters are desecrating the Temple Mount once again with violence.

One policeman was lightly injured by Arab stone throwers on the Temple Mount. He received medical treatment on site.

Rocks were also thrown near Shaar Shechem (Damascus Gate), damaging windows on a passing bus.

No injuries reported, and no arrests reported either.

The Temple Mount is the Jewish people’s holiest site.

Violent Arabs Again Target Jerusalem Light Rail

Monday, July 7th, 2014

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.

Violent Arab Rioting Spreading Throughout Israel

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Arabs rioting in Jerusalem has spread from Shuafat, Beit Hanina and the Temple Mount into the Old City (near the Kotel), Abu Tor, Wadi Joz, and Issawiya.

In addition, Arabs rioted in Nazareth, the Wadi Ara region (northern Israel), Kalanswa, Tira, Baqa al-Gharbiya, Tul Karem, Kalkilya, Qalandia, Kfar Kassem and Taibe.

The rioters threw stones, burned tires, and just generally destroyed property.

In Jerusalem, the Arabs continued to try destroy the Jerusalem Light Rail, by cutting down the train’s electric poles and destroying the tracks. One-third of the train’s daily passengers are Arabs from Shuafat and Beit Hanina.

At the moment, Israeli police are concentrating on a policy of containment, limiting the Arab riots to their neighborhoods, and not letting it spill over to other neighborhoods.

Police have restricted themselves to using riot gear. Though in one case a policeman opened fire at a car that tried to run over some policemen. One of the car’s tires was hit, but the car escaped.

Police special forces were in Jerusalem on Friday, after guns and rifles were openly seen at the funeral for Mohammed Abu-Khder.

If nothing else, perhaps this puts an end to some of the delusions and illusions that Israel has about many of its Arab citizens.

Arab Riots Forced Rabbi Meir Soloveichik, Family off Temple Mount

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

JERUSALEM– For the first time since the beginning of the Passover holiday, the Temple Mount was opened briefly to Jewish visitors and tourists on Sunday, April 20. The site had been closed last week on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday because of violent Palestinian rioting.

On Saturday night, April 19, five Arabs carrying tear gas were arrested as they tried to access the holy site.

However, this Sunday morning, American Rabbi Meir Soloveichik and his family were able to experience two full minutes on the Temple Mount, considered to be one of Judaism’s holiest sites and where two Jewish Holy Temples stood for nearly a millennium.

The rabbi’s visit was cut short when violent rioting once again broke out on the holy site. The riots forced Rabbi Meir Soloveichik and his family, who were accompanied by Temple Institute International Director Rabbi Chaim Richman, off the site within two minutes of ascending.

Two police officers were injured in the confrontation, and 24 arrests have been made. Arab worshipers threw concrete blocks and rocks at Israeli police. The visit provided an opportunity for the influential American rabbi to join the struggle for Jewish prayer and presence on the Temple Mount. The Islamic Waqf, which was given administrative control of the mount following the Six Day War in 1967, bans Jewish prayer and worship.

Rabbi Meir Yaakov Soloveichik is a world renowned American Torah scholar, teacher and leader, who gave the invocation at the opening session of the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. Son of Rabbi Eliyahu Soloveichik, grandson of the late Rabbi Ahron Soloveichik and the great nephew of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik – all of whom are credited for founding what has become the Modern Orthodoxy movement of Judaism.

He currently serves as rabbi of the Sephardic Congregation Shearith Israel in New York City, the oldest Jewish congregation in the United States.

“We are honored to welcome Rabbi Soloveichik,” said Temple Institute International Director Rabbi Chaim Richman. “His visit to the Temple Mount this morning was both spiritual and emotional for all involved. Above all else, his visit sends a strong message to World Jewry that we cannot abandon our holiest site.”

Commenting on today’s incident, Rabbi Soloveichik expressed his dismay at the current situation.

“Under the current circumstances, even to go to the Temple Mount for two minutes was a tremendous privilege,” said Rabbi Soloveichik. “I am very much in favor of ascending the Temple Mount according to Halacha [Jewish law] and after taking the appropriate halachic precautions. It is critical for Jews to understand the importance of the Temple Mount. I applaud the increasing number of Orthodox rabbis and heads of yeshivot that are going to the holy site, and I predict we will see even more Jews ascending in the future.”

Arab Violence on the Temple Mount (Video)

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

Arab violence on the Temple Mount is not a new thing. Nor is their abuse of what they supposedly consider a holy site, such as a mosque.

The video from ‘Chadashot 0404′ below is a closeup of what the police regularly face from the hooligans who hide inside the Al Aqsa mosque and attack the police and visitors outside.

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

A dozen Jewish drivers woke up Wednesday morning to find that their tires had been slashed by Arabs in the Jewish-Arab neighborhood of Abu Tur, located on a hill opposite the Old City.

No Arab-owned vehicles were touched, and police are investigating.

As in other areas of Jerusalem where Jews and Arabs live in the same neighborhood,  relations were good until the Intifada ignited Arab violence against Jews and destroyed peaceful co-existence.
