Thursday Night Live Tour of Jerusalem

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Last night @Israel_Shield took JewishPress.com and hundreds of Twitter followers on a live-streaming interactive tour of the Old City of Jerusalem, via the Israeli live-streaming Twitter app, Meerkat.

The topic of discussion was: The Solution to the Arab-Israel conflict.

We spoke with Jews and Arabs we met along the way as we wound our way through the Jewish and Arab Quarters.

Along the way (2nd video: 19:02) we bumped into a young Jewish couple who literally just got engaged in an alleyway overlooking the Kotel.

French Firm Pulls Out of Jerusalem Cable Car Project after PA Pressure

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

(JNS.org) The French consortium SAFEGE has decided to end its participation in a Jerusalem cable car transportation project over what the firm called “political” concerns.

According to a report in the French daily newspaper Le Figaro, the move by SAFEGE came after a meeting with France’s foreign and economic ministries. The firm said that its decision was made “to avoid any political interpretation,” said a representative of Suez Environment, SAFEGE’s parent company.

Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian Authority’s chief negotiator, had contacted French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius to complain about the project, which includes a cable car in eastern Jerusalem.

“The plan will lead to the illegal expropriation of private property, some of which belongs to the Waqf (Islamic religious endowment),” Erekat wrote to Fabius, Le Figaro reported.

In addition to pressure from the Palestinians, the $31.7 million cable car project has also been met with strong opposition from environmental and religious groups in Jerusalem. Project planners hope that the cable car will reduce traffic congestion in Jerusalem by easing transportation through the Israeli capital, including to holy sites in the Old City and the Mount of Olives.

Clean Up the Wall

Western Wall’s employees, remove thousands of handwritten notes placed between the ancient stones of the Kotel, the Western Wall, Judaism’s second holiest site, in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The operation is carried out twice each year: before the Passover festival in the spring and at the Jewish New Year in the fall.

The prayer supplications will be buried on Har HaZeitim (the Mount of Olives).

Husband Arrested for Saving Wife and Family with Gun in Old City

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

JewishPress.com reported yesterday on the husband that shot in the air to save his wife from an Arab attack in Jerusalem’s Old City.

More details have become available, as a grandson posted some more of the details on Facebook.

The man, an 80 year old grandfather, was with his family when the attack happened.

The Arabs began cursing them, and violently hit one of the children. At which point the grandfather pulled out his gun and fired in the air, scaring them away.

Police arrived, and then arrested the Jewish family and opened criminal charges against them. The police also confiscated the grandfather’s gun.

The grandfather was then taken to the hospital, apparently from the shock.
