Car damage from Arab stone throwers (April 2016)

Stoning and other terrorist attacks by Jerusalem Arabs over the past ten days have seemed to skyrocket around the Israeli capital following passage of a first, and then second resolution by the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) erasing ancient historical ties between Judaism and Jerusalem.

The second resolution, passed by the World Heritage Committee, was proposed by Tunisia and Lebanon on behalf of the Palestinian Authority and Jordan, neither of whom could vote on the measure because neither are members of the World Heritage Committee.

Arab terrorists on Wednesday hurled stones at an Israeli public bus traveling in Jerusalem as the vehicle drove around the Mount of Olives.

It was the second stoning attack in the Israeli capital in a matter of hours, following an earlier attack on an Israeli bus in the Jerusalem neighborhood of A-Tur which resulted in a smashed windshield on the vehicle.

None of the passengers were physically injured in the Mount of Olives attack, nor did the attackers succeed in damaging the bus.

In another attack, Arab attackers hurled stones at the Beit Yonatan apartment building in the ancient Jerusalem neighborhood of Shiloach (Silwan), as well as at a security vehicle that was passing in the area.

Arab terrorists also carried out a third attack on Rehov HaKari in the Old City of Jerusalem, hurling a glass bottle at a pedestrian who miraculously was not injured in the attack.

Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told JewishPress.com, “There was an incident reported of stones thrown near the Old City. Police units searched the area for suspects. General Security measures continue in and around the Old City,” he said.

Rosenfeld added that it is not believed the attacks are related to the UNESCO resolution, nor do they comprise a new, or renewed “wave of terror” beginning in the capital.

  1. My suggestion to Israel. to respond to #Unesco.

    Step 1- all media who say they are based in Gaza and syria are now no longer allowed to stay in the bar at the King david in Jerusalem and have to actually stay in Gaza and Syria. this may have the added benefit of actually improving media coverage.

    Step 2- all UN employees who work for any Un agency are immediately evicted from tel aviv and Jerusalem and can stay in Gaza , Jordan , and Syria, including the Gay ones like Chris Gunness who lives in Tel aviv with his idiot Jewish Boyfriend. why should Israel be housing and protecting these clowns.

    Step 3-the next time the UN white mice are on the run from isis, they are to be told in no uncertain terms that hiding in israel is no longer an option, run to another border.

    Step 4-Immediate removal of the Waqf back to Jordan, Temple mount administration to be taken over by the Temple institute.

    step 5- any action within jerusalem deemed contrary to the public good or safety will result in the immediate expulsion of said family, to either Gaza or Ramallah their property to be immediately forfeit to any victims and if there are no victims to the state of israel.

    step 6- muslims can pray at al aqsa, but the dome of the rock to be immediately removed (by non jewish labourers) and the Temple to be designed and built according to Jewish plans. (al aqsa is not the Golden dome)

    step 7- during the initial hue and cry, all jews on the planet are allowed to tell anyone whining about this to go eff their hat.

    step 8- Israel tells world, you brought this on yourselves.
