Sorry, Arabs, but “Next year in Passaic” just doesn’t have the right ring to it:
Arab rioters hurled Molotov cocktails at an apartment building in a flashpoint Jerusalem neighborhood just hours after Jewish families moved in, police said Tuesday.
No one was injured in the incident in the Kfar Shiloach neighborhood (known as Silwan in Arabic) late on Monday, which saw a group of Palestinians firing flares and throwing petrol bombs at the building, a police statement said.
No serious damage was caused and no arrests were made.
Arrests? What for? Just kids blowing off steam. And smoke.
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has toughened the PA law against selling property to Israeli Jews Tuesday, following recent successful efforts by Jewish NGOs to reclaim parts of Jerusalem where former Jewish communities where expelled.
According to the new legislation, any Palestinian Arabs involved in renting, selling or facilitating real estate transactions with citizens of “hostile countries” in any way would receive life imprisonment and hard-labor, according to Wafa news agency.
The previous law “only” sentenced those found guilty to life imprisonment.
Why would Abbas want a state when he can just change the law on a whim? L’état, c’est lui. Unless he learned that from Obama.
Last, but certainly not least:
Jordan’s King Abdullah II is pressing Israel not to pass a bill allowing Jews to exercise their religious rights and pray on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, a senior official of the Hashemite kingdom revealed on Tuesday.
Jordanian Ambassador to “Palestine” Khalid al-Shawabka told the Palestinian Arab Ma’an News Agency that a bill proposed by MK Miri Regev (Likud) dividing prayer time at the Mount, as is done in Hevron’s Cave of Machpelah, is “unacceptable,” calling the Al-Aqsa Mosque (often used as a euphemism for the entire Temple Mount) and Jerusalem “red lines.”
Jews can’t buy houses in Jerusalem; they can’t live in them once they do buy them; and they can’t pray at the site of their (razed—twice) holiest shrine in their faith—which happens to be located in, you guessed it, Jerusalem.
And John Kerry blames Israel for “street anger and agitation”. I wonder how he’d feel about street anger in Louisburg Square?
