Neturei Karta Meet Mufti to Stop Rock Throwing at Yidden

20

netureiA representative of the Neturei Karta fringe group met with the Mufti of Jerusalem in recent days to discuss Arab violence on Har Hazeisim. The representative asked Sheikh Akram Sabri to instruct the Arab youth in Yerushalayim not to throw rocks at members of Neturei Karta who come to pray at the Har Hazeisim cemetery.

The Neturei Karta representative, whose name was not given in the report, also brought up the subject of the destruction of tombstones by Arab youths on the Har Hazeisim, and asked that the practice cease. Members of Neturei Karta and other Jews “do not come to the cemetery in order to provoke,” he said, just to carry out peaceful prayer.

The report added the honorific “his excellency” to the mufti’s name and noted that he received the Jewish representative “with kindness and great warmth,” and that he “listened” to all of the stories about what the Arab youths do on Har Hazeisim.

The mufti reportedly said that he would raise the matter with the imam of the neighborhood that adjoins the cemetery, and ask him to tell members of his community to cease this activity.

  1. To Nice,
    Are you so sure they are looking out for Jews in jerusalem or looking out for themselves. Itseems the petition was for themselves and not anyone else.

  2. The article states
    “The representative asked Sheikh Akram Sabri to instruct the Arab youth in Yerushalayim not to throw rocks at members of Neturei Karta who come to pray at the Har Hazeisim cemetery.”
    That is a blatant attempt to distort the truth. They requested that rocks not be thrown at ANYONE.

  3. I wont critisize them for speaking to the sheik
    I f the Israeli goverment refuses to assert their control of the Mekoimos Hakdoshim & refuses to protect the yidden ,which go there their are only 2 choices 1) Vigilante Violence
    2) Asking the sheiks ,who respect the mekoimes hakdoshim

  4. Don’t you have better, and more important news to write about, than the above stupitity, and even worse, to mention the above so called group which I wouldn’t even utter.

  5. It seems that too many people in so many of these posts are quite ignorant. Having grown up in yerushalayim, please let me explain that the Neturei Karta are wonderful people. They are not like the fringe groups that go to Iran to meet Ahmajenidad.
    They are warm and caring and have the right ideals most of the time. Please stop blasting other yiden. Calling for their death, is by no means a form of achdus either.

  6. We are talking about the fringe groups that do go to Iran. We are not talking about the others that are Ehrlicah Yidden.
