Israel erects wall to protect Jews in east Jerusalem

Jerusalem – Israeli police on Sunday began erecting a wall in east Jerusalem to protect a Jewish neighbourhood subject to firebomb and stone attacks launched from an adjacent Palestinian village.

The wall would effectively divide Palestinian Jabel Mukaber and Jewish Armon Hanatziv, raising criticism among the government’s opposition, which considered the move a de facto division of Jerusalem.

As of Sunday, police had placed six slabs below Jabel Mukaber, each about 2.5 metres (yards) high and two metres long. Black lettering in Hebrew at the bottom of the slabs read “temporary mobile police barrier”.

    Sorry Israel, for our shoddy Administration, and those in so-called charge of this country for deserting you. Most of us do not back this Administrations policies.

    the only one willing to do it is Trump—the rest of them just talk about about how we must treat illegals.

    Just think if we had a president who had the same desire to protect its citizens as Israel has. We would be a different country a basically illegal free country. All we can do is hope that the next president will do what is necessary to protect Americans from the southern invasion.

      Putting all those social services workers off the government payroll? Now THAT’s the kind of “shrinking government” unemployment I would welcome, instead of production unemployment.

        No argument from on that. We need to get rid of many of the useless agencies that we have that cause problems but serve no useful service.
