The Shuafat stop of the Jerusalem light rail.

There were two separate ‘travel terror’ attacks on the Jerusalem Light Rail Sunday night, both in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, according to Channel 2 television news.

Local Arabs hurled rocks at the passenger train as it passed through the neighborhood. No one was physically injured although a number of passengers were traumatized by the attacks. Several cars were damaged in the attacks as well.

Each time a window on the Light Rail is smashed, the CityPass company is forced to pay between NIS 3,000 to NIS 5,000 for its replacement since insurance does not cover the cost of damage due to terror attacks.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for a “heavy handed response” to violence in the city in a statement earlier this month, and pledged the assistance of city hall as needed by the police.

  1. To be a Zionist is to want to see the Jews back in their own ancient homeland of Israel. Where they have lived for thousands of years before the Romans shipped them out of their land to all the corners of the world. Now they are coming back, just as it was stated in the Word of G-d foretold a very long time ago. Nothing Satanic about that at-all. But to be against G-d, His word, will and against His chosen nation, that is certainly Satanic. “The G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob said: “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you.”
    (Genesis 12:3) I AM A ZIONIST, STANDING WITH ISRAEL – SUPPORTING HER FULLY. HOW ABOUT YOU? WILL YOU STAND FOR ISRAEL AS WELL?

  3. Why was my Shofar Silent Erev Rosh Hoshana?
    by Evelyn Haies

    I didn't get to buy apples and honey
    I didn't bake pomegranate muffins
    I didn't do my nails.
    I didn't even go home to sleep
    I gave so much and so much more was taken

    I didn't get to have a gathering with friends, shofar and songs of thanks
    I am so tired and stressed because of a corrupt mess,
    a yeshiva led off the derech by their rabbis
    and police promising to show and telling me fibs
    to take me away from watching my Sefer Torah
    left on the street at 3 in the morning
    by rabbis who forge and teach their students to keep
    the majority owner of the property out.

    Dear Hashem, I wanted to make erev yom tov
    so special after seeing a Torah cemented into the floor.
    This is not hazing. It's absolutely crazy
    that yeshiva boys attack a grandma's foundation, its property, its Museum, its Sefer Torah
    that yeshiva boys are taught that bullying and harassing and grabbing is getting and being able to have.
    I just learned that stealing kills.

    Dear Hashem, please stop this mess
    We need blessings more than ever.for strength and rectification and goodness.
    They even removed my granddaughter's derech eretz painting
    Dear Hashem, I'm glad I'm not them
