Renewed Arab Violence in Yerushalayim on Motzei Shabbos


ywnisrael.israelClashes are reported in areas of the eastern capital including Issawiya, Silwan and Beit Haninah. At least one policeman has been injured in the Arab violence that seems to be gaining momentum in the Arab areas of the capital.

On Friday, Muslims burned and destroyed the Israel Police substation on Har Habayis.

  1. Shoot a few to kill: that’s the only way they’ll see you mean business otherwise they’ll think we’re allowing them to vent as David Dinkins did in Crown heights. They know only violence and control!!
    Please, Yerushalyim police do not let this get out of hand! Squelch it at once!

  2. To kush: שלא אחד בלבד עמד עלינו לכלותינו, אלא שבכל דור ודור עומדים עלינו לכלותינו והקב”ה מצילנו מידם.

    We are always facing danger and we always love all our brethren (I don’t know why you refer to our Israeli brethren as “them”). All the בני ישיבה and בני תורה I know daven every day for the health and well being of all our brethren. It is well known the Divrei Yoel (the Rebbe of Satmar) and the Gerer Rebbe (the Imrei Emes or the Beis Yisroel or both) shed copious tears whenever they heard of the tragic death of an Israeli soldier. Neither they nor the Torah community ever speak in terms of they/we them/us when talking about fellow Yidden. Perhaps nobody should.
