Two amateur video clips circulating on social media, both posted in Arabic, provide a glimpse into the less-reported side of the escalating tensions in and around Jerusalem.

One shows a mob of angry Arabs verbally harassing Jews, among them children, as they make their way to the Western Wall on Monday, the first day of the Sukkot holiday. Loud chants of “allahu akbar” accompany menacing fist-waving at passers-by.

The other captures a young Muslim man planting a hard, swift kick on a baby stroller being pushed by a father with a tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) on his head. Here, too, taunting and shouting in Arabic can be heard, while the father whisks his child away from the scene of the Old City of Jerusalem site as fast as he can.

These incidents are part of the ongoing riots – characterized by rock-throwing and the hurling of firebombs – that have Israeli security forces stepping up efforts to prevent the violence and bring its perpetrators to justice.

As a result of what some are referring to as the beginning of a “third intifada,” or an armed Palestinian uprising, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused the Palestinian Authority of incitement to violence, and has imposed harsher rules of engagement for IDF soldiers and Israel police confronting this type of warfare, often involving the use of minors to carry out deeds that have proven to be fatal.

That stones can be used as deadly weapons hit home earlier this month, when 64-year-old Jerusalemite Alexander Levlovich succumbed to wounds sustained when his car was pelted by rocks, while he was on his way home from a Rosh Hashanah dinner.

    That religion, which above all others was founded and propagated by the sword—the tenets and principles of which are instinct with incentives to slaughter and which in three continents has produced fighting breeds of men—stimulates a wild and merciless fanaticism.

    Indeed it is evident that Christianity, however degraded and distorted by cruelty and intolerance, must always exert a modifying influence on men’s passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever, as we are protected from smallpox by vaccinations. But the Mohammaden religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since its votaries have been subject, above all the peoples of all other creeds, to this form of madness.

    The Arabic-speaking Islamo-Nazis are EXACTLY like the German-speaking Teutonic Nazis.
    If they had the means and power, they’d do to us much worse than the Germans, Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, Ukrainians, Romanians and Poles.

    Actually, it’s more like the Jews harass the Christians and the Arabs! Not the other way around. Including Christian clergy, be it Greek, Armenian, or any other religious groop, except, may be excluding those stupid evangelical groups. By the way, Jews hate them too,(unfortunately the truth has to be told) but not to their faces. The fact is, Jews hate everybody. Including those so called black Jews from Ethiopia. Sadly, it has become that way. For me, It would have been hard to believe, had it not been for me to have lived there and have witnessed this ugly reality in person, along with my family. Some democracy!

    Nothing short of extinction could stop this cancerous tumor called “palestine” and as God said, that day WILL come.

  • ART

    This is why Jerusalem can NOT be divided or allowed under arab control. Where are the bleeding hearts who scream islamophobia to condemn these attacks on Jews

  • Mickey Oberman

    These mad Muslim dogs must be treated like all vicious, uncurable canines.

  • It is time to take control of the Temple Mount and quit soft peddling the rock throwers.

  • brenrod

    BB, yaalon and rivlin are busy chasing fake jewish phantoms rather than protecting Jews from muslim anti semitism and Jew abuse in the so call Jewish state and homeland.
