Israeli police on site of an Arab terror attack in the Old City of Jerusalem. A Jewish family was stabbed while walking near the Lion's Gate.

A mob of furious Jews marched in a protest towards the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem Saturday night at midnight, demanding vengeance for the Arab terrorist murder of two rabbis several hours earlier near the Lion’s Gate.

A 19-year-old Jerusalem Arab repeatedly stabbed and then shot the two rabbis, as well as the 22-year-old wife of one of the men, and their 2-year-old toddler, who sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. His mother is in serious condition at Shaare Zedek Medical Center. Her young daughter is badly traumatized but escaped physical injury.

Jews protested in various locations outside the Old City for hours after the attack as well.

Also in Jerusalem at midnight, Arabs were throwing stones and firebombs, and shooting fireworks at police at the Dung Gate entrance to the Old City as well.

Last Thursday Palestinian Arab terrorists murdered Rabbi Eitam Henkin and his wife Na’ama before the horrified eyes of their four children in a drive-by shooting on a Samaria road between the Jewish communities of Itamar and Elon Moreh.

The IDF and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) arrested a number of suspects in the case in a complex joint operation in Shechem (Nablus) over the weekend and the investigation into that attack is continuing under gag order.

  1. The videos accompanying the article look like peaceful protests. The article does state, “Arabs were throwing stones and firebombs, and shooting fireworks at police at the Dung Gate entrance to the Old City . . .” I think need to change your misleading headline. How about,”Furious Jews Peacefully Protest Arab Terror As Savage Arabs Riot, Throw Rocks and Firebombs.”

  2. Tired of all the talk and rhetoric. Call me when they actually start protecting their citizens. The leftist jews and government are only interested in not trying to upset the muslims and the enemies who want to kill them. I's working really well too as is evidenced by all the peace in the land.

  3. Peace and saftey wil occur when there are no arabs in Israel. They must be relocated to Lebanon, Syria and Lybia or any other country that would not be afraid to have them in their midst. I shudder to think what the arabs would do to Jews if they had the upper hand.
