In addition to MK Ben-Ari, the discussion was attended by MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union), Yonatan Yosef, speaker of the Jewish settlement in Sheikh Jarrah, David Bedein, and Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of the Temple Institute.

“We shall not allow the historic riots of 1929 to repeat themselves in the 2011 State of Israel. We are all for a tooth for a tooth, a march for a march. If they throw stones at us - we will return stones, if they declared war on us - we will return to them with war.” So said a spokesman for the Jewish settlement in Sheikh Jarrah, who talked about the tension and fear of violence in the neighborhood, towards the Palestinian call to the UN General Assembly, later this month. His colleagues agreed with him, and explained bluntly: ”Whoever approaches the fence - is considered dead.”

The Jerusalem District Court has ruled there will be no change in the decision to set free without limitation four Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity activists, detained last week during a demonstration against constructing new housing units for Jews in east Jerusalem. The judge, Moshe Drori, rejected the police appeal on the ruling of the Magistrate’s Court in the matter, which stated there was no reason for arresting the activists. Judge Drori wrote in his decision: “it is a shame that the police delegate, representing the state, is not following the path that the court ruled”. The judge also added: “I didn’t see the need for the District court to explain once again to the police that it has to follow High court rulings that were given 30 years ago”.
