ElderofZiyon writes about an article which is behind a paywall at the Globe and Mail authored by Michael Bell, who "has been Canada's ambassador to Israel, Jordan and Egypt. He is an adjunct professor of political science at University of Windsor and also teaches at Carleton University."
Mr. Bell wrote about his friend, Danny Seidemann, whose car was stoned in East Jerusalem two weeks ago.
No suspects have been identified. Given established patterns, however, the likely perpetrators are ultra-nationalist members of the settler movement,...
ElderofZiyon points out, "The only problem is that Seidemann was attacked by Arabs.
He was visiting a Palestinian friend in an Arab neighborhood of Jerusalem, Sur Bahir. He admits having been targeted previously for being a Jew in Arab neighborhoods. Representatives of the Arab community visited him and expressed regret. The Jewish doctors that treated him all pretty much asked what he was doing in a neighborhood where Jews are routinely attacked if they step foot.
There are no Jews there.
As one can see from the above screen capture of a twitter account, Mr. Seidemann informed the ambassador of his error. Will the article be withdrawn or edited?
The WashingtonPost has an article titled Jewish activists set sights on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, raising alarm in Muslim world.
Two millenniums ago, this place was the site of the Jews’ Second Temple, destroyed in A.D. 70 by Roman legions under Titus, who cast the Jews into exile.
...The same courtyard is home to al-Aqsa mosque, one of the oldest in Islam, and the Dome of the Rock, the golden landmark where tradition says the prophet Mohammad made his night journey to heaven.
...“This place belongs to the Muslim people, and no others have the right to pray here,” said Sheik Azzam al-Khatib, director of the Waqf, the Islamic trust that administers the site.
Shouldn't the Palestinians, who claim the rights of a displaced people, respect the rights of the original displaced people?
