Israeli Authorities Plan to Expel Jews From Shalhevet Neighbourhood (in Hebron) This Coming Sunday/Monday

From the Jewish Community of Hebron:

Today, the 78th anniversary of the 1929 riots and massacre in Hebron, which left 67 dead and the surviving population expelled from the city, Defense Minister Ehud Barak personally decided to expel two more families from the city, from their homes in the Shalhevet neighborhood (the shuk).

The Hebron Community council expresses deep pain and protest at the desecration of the memories of the 1929 victims and the continuation of forced expulsion, this time not by Arabs, rather by Jews, expelling their brothers.

According to information received by the community, about 1,000 police, riot squad forces and soldiers will execute the expulsion late Sunday night - early Monday morning. The community calls on anyone to whom Hebron and Eretz Yisrael are important to, to flock to Hebron as early as this coming Saturday night, following Shabbat, in order to take an active role in the protest and struggle. Most likely Israeli security forces will close all roads leading to Hebron sometime Monday, so it is important to arrive as early as possible.

I posted on this, too. I'm fearing the worst, but hope to God that there is one hell of a fight put up by the Zionists against the police. I hate to say this, but I would like to see the Jews fight the Israeli swat team with bullets. It's the only language they'll understand.

MZ: well, it seems that what most of us feared has come about - the authorities have once again done the job of the Arab enemy in Israel and kicked some more Jews out of the Holy City of Hebron...

But what you wished for is also something that you should be fearful of - not hopefull for. Jews fighting Jews with bullets is not just a tragedy - it'd be stupid and would accomplish nothing. You don't need to be a genious to realise that such a fight would be futile, and the IDF would quickly kill off those who shot at them (what would you expect them to do?)


Every way you look at it, it would be the wrong thing to do. There are other ways...
