It’s Passover, Easter and Ridvan, Let’s Throw Rocks

Easter Sunday and Orthodox Easter, Sri Lankan New Year and Rivdan too, not only Passover is being celebrated in Jerusalem, Israel today.

While hundreds of thousands have gathered to celebrate their religious festivals, Arab rioters are throwing stones, at passing cars and on the Temple Mount and they are getting the attention that they are seeking.

When I went to the Old City this week, I saw very different scenes.

Yes, security was higher at Mamilla Mall near the Jaffa Gate into the Old City. There were indeed roads blocked in The Old City, but they were blocked for everyone. Only special vehicles got through, and there were limited ways to walk as well.

In spite of negative reporting, there is freedom of movement not only for this Arab woman,

but also young Arab males who are working and or walking.

Imagine Israel is trying to keep away those whose intent is to cause damage!?!

The crowds were so heavy on Thursday, we had to walk out only one way from the Western Wall, and not my usual way. Darn, as I was trying to show this cute Ethiopian child, an Arab woman walked right into my frame.

Unlike the years of 1948-1967, when under Jordanian occupation, the Old City was off limits to all Jews, now hundreds of thousands of visitors of many faiths are celebrating their religious festivals.

Hopefully as these tourists freely walk the Jerusalem, Israel streets, they will see what is really happening for themselves and take home the truth.

What a huge BDSFail, these religious pilgrims!

Meanwhile, if you are not familiar with Ridvan, it is a 12 day Bahai religious festival that started in Baghdad, its most holy day starts at sunset on April 20 each year.

Also, April 20 is Hitler’s birthday, but that is another story.

Happy Passover, Easter, New Year and Ridvan.

 

 

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
