Arab residents of Jerusalem marched through the Israeli capital’s streets on Friday to mark “Nakba Day” — the Arabic name for the perceived catastrophe (nakba) of the creation of the Jewish state. Video footage of one demonstration showed the rioters chanting “We don’t want the Jews.”

In the video clip, a large group of Palestinian demonstrators is seen congregated across from the Ateret Cohanim Yeshiva in Jerusalem. The rioters begin throwing glass bottles at yeshiva students, simultaneously calling out, “We don’t want Jews,” “by our souls and by our blood, we will redeem Al-Aqsa,” and “Allahu Akbar.”

Many yeshiva students hid inside the school fearing the protesters outside, according to Israeli news portal 0404. One student told the website that Jerusalem’s Arab residents “do whatever they want here.”

“They do not fear anyone,” he said, expressing hope that “one day someone will wake up in our country and make it clear to them who is boss in this country, and to whom Jerusalem and the Temple Mount belong.”

The student said that he and others were, “trying to figure out how it is that we are locked up inside of a yeshiva, in Jerusalem, fearing what [demonstrators] might do to you.”

“It’s completely bizarre,” he added.

Nakba Day is the Palestinian commemoration of the beginning of the Palestinian refugee crisis, and is marked on the date Israel declared independence.

    Until you suppress these fools Israel will be at risk. Muslims should never be allowed to intimidate Jews in their own land!They have lost the wars to kill the Jews!It is time to put these Muslims in their place.

    As for the Pope calling Abbas an angel, he must be drinking the alter wine! What history does he not know.Abbas is a Nazi,read he college writings.If he thinks the Muslims are so good then why are Christians leaving the Middle East?

    Instead owhining about nakba day and the arabs the Jews should have IDF parades through east jeerusalem in celebration of the same nakba day, but as the victors… victors normally celbrate in their own land without asking permission.
    the jews should be throwing the stones and the arabs should be whining and moaning. I know of no other people who would continue to act like ghetto residents in their own land tolerating the jew hating arabs from whose nations the Jews were driven out without any of the foreign orgs raising a whisper. meanwhile the foreign orgs who did not object to expelled Jews fight tooth and nail for their pets.
    If any one should live in fear in Israel it should NOT be the Jews.
