    How long will the world stand by with this sort of behaviour I wonder.

    A settler mob, with municipal backing, rampages through Jerusalem | Jews for Justice for Palestinians

    The article goes on to say how a growing number of Palestinians are understanding that Gandhi style protest is their best hope.

    Let me get this straight:

    Arab in Israel = a citizen.
    Jew in Israel = a guest.

    Right?

    Because E'Jlem is home of the Jewish Quarter - the part that Israel took back and the Jews (unlike most 'oh we demand a right of return' Arabs) who had actual legal documents showing proof of ownership, were able to eventually move back into their old 'hood.

    Jerusalem Day. It's a big deal. We got the Western Wall back. We'd lost much of Jewish J'lem in the 48 war. Yeah.

    Haredim fuckers are mean and racist. They hate everyone who is not Haredi. Hell, they hate secular Jews the most! We know that. :eusa_whistle: Racism is alive and well in Jerusalem (and it's not limited to just religious Jews).

    But it doesn't make your 'jews for justice' (somehow I feel their actual Jewish membership is low) post any more legit.

    Jerusalem has been Jerusalem for the last 40 years. It's part of Israel. The Arabs have Israeli citizenship, get free health care, government support, etc. They also get to vote in PA elections. Israel pays for all of J'lems needs (roads, police, fire, etc.).

    Schluman is a world-renowned linguist and professor at Heeb U, but that doesn't make him a good journalist. He apparently thinks anyone in East J'lem is a settler. He probably opposed the city giving construction grants to Jews who had deeds from pre-48 to build on the property of their grandfathers.

    I believe that all Israeli citizens, Arab or Jew, should be allowed proper and affordable housing in Jerusalem. But...that doesn't mean that Jewish-owned land (with actual deeds) is going to transfer to Arabs that want it.

    The housing issue in Jlem is SUPER fucked up. But when Palestinians residents blow up shit or open fire on their Jewish employers and the PA refuses to renounce violence, um, yes, Jewish Israelis people become hesitant to rent to Arabs, hire Arabs, whatever.

    It's rather unfortunate he used the word 'mob'. That word implies violence or crime.

    It was a parade, just like every other year. Just like gay pride parades in Jerusalem or protests or whatever.

    It probably doesn't help that Muslims in Jerusalem support the PA and think that Israel will eventually cease to exist.

    Not only did the Zionists screw lot of Palestinians, they screwed lot of Jews. Their war with the Palestinians caused a lot of Jews to lose their homes.

    The UN and Jordan put Palestinians who lost their homes in these homes. If the Jews can get these homes back why can't these Palestinians get their homes back?

    Problem solved.

    Fuck off. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was an anti-Semitic Nazi...the massacres and violence against Jews in J'lem is NOT to be blamed on the Jews themselves.

    You are disgusting.

    The Grand Mufti was appointed by the British.

    The first Grand Mufti forbade sales to Jews, the second worked with them, and the third wanted to kill them all and collaborated with Nazis.

    Don't blame that on the Jews.

    JLem day is like the American 4th. It's not a mob. It's a huge party. There were groups of religious right wingers who protested in the now Arab/ former Jewish neighborhoods...and many were arrested. The police guarded the Arab residents.
