Jerusalem Arabs Take Potshots at Jewish Neighborhood

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Arabs from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat shot randomly at the Pisgat Ze’ev area Friday evening, blasting s hole in a car windshield and shooting at least one bullet in a garden

No one was injured. And police have not arrested suspects.

The gunshots were as repeat of an incident two weeks ago when a round of bullets from Shuafat hit Pisgat Ze’ev.
Arabs from the same area also recently have attacked the light rail system in Jerusalem at least 40 times.

Residents locked themselves in their homes for their own safety.

‘Jerusalem Post’ or ‘Palestine Post’?

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Judging by the way The Jerusalem Post is delivering an Arab-nationalist, anti-Israeli news report from a Palestinian news agency, embracing the latter’s political terminology, code language and agenda, you have to wonder:

“Two settlers attacked a taxi driver in east Jerusalem on Tuesday, the driver told Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported.

Naim Yousef Elayan, 62, told Ma’an that the young men flagged him down Gilo settlement and asked him to take them to Pisgat Zeev at around 3 a.m.

‘They told me that they want to pick up their friend and when they found out I was Palestinian, they attacked me with a 20-centimeter knife. They pointed the knife toward my neck but I held it with my hand and started screaming. They fled,’ Ma’an reported the driver as saying.”

No police confirmation, no other attempt to verify the veracity of a story like this, which casts blame on an entire community – and the final insult, de-legitimizing the Jewish neighborhood of Jerusalem by calling it a settlement. Seriously?

Well, years ago they actually were called The Palestine Post

Mosque’s Loud Prayer Generates Mega-Decibel ‘Battle of the Bands’

Monday, July 16th, 2012

After the French Hill neighborhood of Jerusalem has decided to play very loud music, in defiance of the volume and disturbance of the sound of the muezzin at the mosque in nearby Al-Issawiya, two additional Jewish neighborhoods, Pisgat Ze’ev and Har Choma, have announced that they, too, will take up a similar approach. French Hill also decided to go with hard rock, and not Mediterranean tunes, as had originally been planned, because, as they put it, hard rock is more likely to deliver the message.

According to Yediot Jerusalem, the French Hill neighborhood has recently approached an amplification company with an order for four huge speakers to be directed at Al-Isawiya. As soon as the village muezzin will start his exceedingly loud prayer, it will be responded to with ear shattering Rock n’ Roll, letting local Arabs understand how disturbing the loud prayers have been to their Jewish neighbors.

Har Choma and Pisgat Ze’ev residents are waiting to see the results from the French Hill “pilot.” If the protest via rock blasts succeeds, the other two neighborhoods, situated on the border of the Jerusalem municipality, will follow suit.

Har Choma residents are coping with the sound of the muezzin from the villages of Umm Tuba and Sur Baher. Pisgat Ze’ev residents receive their 5 daily Muslim inspiration calls from Beit Hanina, Shuafat and Anata.

Jerusalem’s city hall has attempted to negotiated between Al-Issawiya village head Darwish Darwish and the residents of French Hill. Darwish promised to regulate the noise level, but the French Hill residents are saying nothing has changed, and the muezzin call continue to reach unbearable decibels.

Jewish Birthrate Exceeds Arab in Jerusalem

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

The Jewish birthrate per capita of Jewish mothers in Jerusalem is now higher than that of Arab women in Israel’s capital city.

According to the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies, the average birthrate of Jewish women in Jerusalem is 4.2 children, compared to 3.9 children.

In 1999, the birthrate was just 3.8 for Jewish mothers compared to 4.4 for Arabs.

The total population of Jerusalem as of 2011 is 801,000.  Jerusalem’s three biggest neighborhoods are Ramot, Pisgat Ze’ev, and Gilo, all of which exist in areas liberated by Israel in 1967.
