Police to Close Some Old City Entrances to Jews on Shavuot Eve

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

The police will be prohibiting Jewish foot traffic to and from the Kotel via the Muslim Quarter from Shabbat evening until 1:30 AM on Sunday.

Last year, Arabs stabbed 2 Jewish boys that were on their way to the Kotel from Damascus Gate (Sha’ar Shechem) on Shavuot night .

As Ramadan coincides with Shavuot this month, police feel they will be unable to protect Jewish pedestrians, and it will be easier to simply not allow Jews into the area with numerous Muslims.

On Shavuot night, it is traditional to learn all night, and then walk to the Kotel for morning prayers at sunrise.

Where are All the Leftwing, Jewish Guardians of Peace?

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

On Sunday we saw Jews beautifully singing and dancing through the gates of Jerusalem – on Jerusalem Day.

We also saw leftwing Jews desperately searching the crowds for even a single violent or loudmouthed Jew, so they could show off to the world how bad we Jews must be.

They failed.

Turns out the leftwingers showed up on the wrong day.

On Monday evening, the first night of Ramadan, the Islamists had their turn to sing and chant at the Damascus Gate.

Their chants were less peaceful. They started with “Allahu Ahkbar” – what they almost always yell before stabbing a Jew, and then moving on to “With blood and fire we will redeem Al Aqsa“.

Where were the Tag Meir people, to hand them some flowers, and to tell them to be peaceful and think happy thoughts?

Where are all the Leftists, to film the Islamic calls to violence against Jews?

Apparently it’s not so interesting when Jews aren’t involved.

Or maybe they are too afraid to show up near a crowd of Islamists.

Thousands Flock to Western Wall on Jerusalem Day

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Thousands upon thousands of people flocked to the Western Wall on Sunday to celebrate the 49th year of the unification of the heartbeat of Israel, the holy city of Jerusalem.

Nearly half of the city, and all of the ancient Old City of Jerusalem was occupied for 19 years by Jordan after it was captured during the 1948 War of Independence.

The Israel Defense Forces restored the seized portion of the ancient Jewish capital to the rest of the city during the 1967 Six Day War.

Israelis have since streamed into the capital to celebrate the day by praying at the Western Wall and with other festivities, including the Jerusalem Day Flag Dance Parade.

This year the parade will march as always from the Damascus Gate through the Muslim Quarter to the Western Wall, but marchers and participants will only be allowed through the gate from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm.

After that time anyone who wishes to enter will be redirected to the Jaffa Gate.

Tonight also begins the holy Islamic month of Ramadan, and Muslim worshipers will be hurrying to attend prayers at the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, right next door to the Western Wall.

Jerusalem District Police and Israel Police have adjusted the scheduling in order to minimize the likelihood of clashes between the two celebrating populations.

Liberman: ‘Netanyahu and Yaalon Are Bad for the Security of Israel’

Thursday, March 10th, 2016

By Jonathan Benedek/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – Yisrael Beiteinu party head Avigdor Liberman visited the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City yesterday afternoon March 9, in what he said was an expression of solidarity with security forces in their struggle to prevent terror. The Damascus Gate area has seen a number of attacks in recent months.

As at other times in the past year, Liberman criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon in their handling of the wave of terror attacks.

“Netanyahu and Yaalon are bad for the security of Israel,” Lieberman said. “The prime minister and the defense minister have succeeded in bringing Jerusalem back decades to the period of 1967.”

In 1967, many neighborhoods of Jerusalem, including the Old City, were liberated by Israel from Jordan in the Six-Day War. Jerusalem’s Old City was located near the 1949 armistice lines that then separated Israeli and Jordanian forces.

“Jews are not visiting, are worried, and feel that there is no way to walk around here,” added Lieberman, explaining the implications of his statement.

Lieberman said that Israel was facing organized terror through social media. “Whoever is speaking about terrorism from individuals has no idea what he is talking about,” argued Liberman. “This is organized terror.”

“Instead of cells and communication devices, they are using social media.”
