In the Silwan neighborhood of Jerusalem, a murder occurred on Jew-hating grounds
A 20-year-old man was stabbed to death in the Silwan neighborhood of Jerusalem, Israel Radio reported on Friday.
Israel Police reported that the man was killed following an argument that broke out between family members. It is not yet clear which family members were involved
Neighbors who witnessed the fight told police that the argument was over the hot-button issue of selling homes to Jews in the predominantly Arab neighborhood.
Most recently, on September 30, seven residences adjacent to the capital’s Old City were purchased by Elad, a right-wing organization that uses funds from Jewish supporters in the United States and elsewhere to buy properties in Arab districts.
According to police, during a brief confrontation, one officer was lightly wounded by a rock that a protester threw.
“In terms of the police perspective, the homes were legally sold to the Jewish families, who were escorted by officers to prevent incidents from local Arab residents,” a police spokesman said, adding that there had been no arrests.
But are they going to pursue the culprits who murdered the man? Let's hope so.
