Israeli police on Tuesday banned non-Muslims from a contentious Jerusalem holy site until the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan following two days of clashes with Palestinian rioters at the site.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said rocks and other objects were hurled toward police forces and Jewish worshipers in a nearby plaza. A 73-year-old woman was lightly wounded and police arrested 16 suspects in the disturbances that have been going on for three days, Rosenfeld said.

    This is exactly how Islamic colonization works. It has deals and Hudnahs until they release the terror.

    This is morally reprehensible and echoes British behaviour during the British Mandate when murderous Arab attacks began in 1920. During the Arab riots 1936-1939, the Peel Commission determined that the Arabs were the cause of the violence.Instead of punishing the Arabs, the Jews were penalised – Jewish immigration was prevented. This continued during WW2.

    While I can understand their reasons, the Israeli Police are rewarding Arab violence. The Police should ban everyone, not just Jews. The Jews did not riot. The mere presence of a Jew is sufficient “provocation” to justify violence. This makes the Jewish State look weak and therefore there is no respect, only contempt. We are saying: Riot, kill, murder Jews and we will allow you to continue!

    So Bibi gives in. The end of Jewish sovereignty. A little rioting, some stines thrown, wailing…that’s all it takes. He’s taken the lion out of Zion.

    Aren’t you supposed to arrest and ban the rioters not the victims. How backwards is this.

    Jews make aliya to Israel in order to suffer more anti semitic abuse under a jewish state and gov than in france.
