VIDEO: How Jerusalem’s French Hill Neighborhood is Overrun by Arabs



A resident of Jerusalem’s French Hill neighborhood captured an arson attack on video after installing a camera system that alerted him and his wife of a break-in into their vehicles, transmitting the criminal act on their smartphones. The two have been victimized in the past and decided to install this system, which is presented in a YouTube video (at bottom of this article).

The resident speaks of the simple fact that while French Hill is an integral area of the capital it has been overrun by Arabs from nearby villages, who are free to roam their community while they cannot enter the Arab areas.

He speaks of the fireworks at midnight and the new speakers installed on the nearby mosque minarets “which make it sound like the sound comes from inside my own house it is so loud.”

The video shows three Arabs calmly smashing their car windows as they set the cars ablaze.

Just today, Sunday 26 Cheshvan 5773 a female motorist was threatened at knifepoint by an Arab male who tried to make off with her vehicle on Savion Street in French Hill during the afternoon hours, in broad daylight. The woman resisted and the assailant fled. Baruch Hashem she was only scratched by his knife. The victim was transported to a local hospital.

  1. I have lived in the area for 3 years and, while true incidents like this happen from time to time – we are in no way “overrun” as this headline would suggest. That said – its about time the government takes action and finally closes the road to the Arab village.
