State Department ‘Extremely Concerned’ Over Violence In Yerushalayim

The State Department said it is “extremely concerned” over mushrooming violence in Jerusalem after reports that scores of people were injured in renewed clashes Friday night.

The clashes near Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque, an area that is holy to all three Abrahamic religions, coincided with the waning days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The clashes appeared to center around evictions of Palestinians by Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem and attacks on Israeli soldiers.

“The United States is extremely concerned about ongoing confrontations in Jerusalem, including on the Haram al-Sharif / Temple Mount and in Sheikh Jarrah, which have reportedly resulted in scores of injured people,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said late Friday. “We call on Israeli and Palestinian officials to act decisively to deescalate tensions and bring a halt to the violence.”

  1. They should first be very concerned about violence in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland and all over America.

  2. Empty words. These statements are made by the administration that is funding Hamas via aid to several organizations that Trump shut down. If there was seriousness about wanting to end the violence, Biden would take a strong stand against these terrorists. Strip away all funding, direct or indirect, and beg Israel to utilize live ammo when dealing with the rioting savages. Only when they see their carcasses piling up will they decide to stop the terror.

    And the IDF operations in Gaza need not to be symbolic shooting at empty buildings. They need to restore targeted assassinations, and they need to level parts of Gaza to rubble. America needs to support that openly.

  3. Why are these hypocrites more concerned now than when they had massive losses of billions of dollars and many lives in the U.S. “demonstrations” in the past year?

  4. If State Department were truly concerned which they are not, they would send sleepy joe packing to his basement in Delaware, and put the true winner of the 2020 election:- President Donald Trump in the White House, and law & order would be spreading as far away as the Middle East.

  5. “We call on Israeli and Palestinian officials to act decisively to deescalate tensions and bring a halt to the violence.”

    So here we go again. Both sides both sides both sides both sides both sides. John Kerry and Susan Rice are back! These anti semitic pigs are equivocating Israel defending themselves with Palestinian terrorists bent on killing as many Jews as possible. Biden is a lowlife dog Jew hater who hides behind Jen Psaki’s skirt and claims ignorance.

    • Bingo.
      This is no different than calling for “both sides” to stop the conflict between the Nazis ym”s and Jews during the Holocaust, except in this case b”H the Jews have means to defend themselves.
