JERUSALEM: Arab Muslims firebomb historic Jewish house in the old city

Arab Muslims in the Shiloah neighborhood of Jerusalem’s old city firebombed the Jewish Meyuhas House using firecrackers and Molotov cocktails. Muslims there oppose the Jewish presence in the historic and modern capital of the Jewish state.

Jerusalem-House-Firebombed

The Blaze (h/t Liz)  The House was built by Rabbi Rahamim Nathan Meyuhas, the first Jew to return to the Old City in modern times. Meyuhas, whose family lived in the Old City for centuries purchased the plot in 1873.

Filmed from a nearby building, the video shows the launching of multiple flaming projectiles toward the house, impacting it with incendiary fury, setting fires through its windows. Israelis calls it Shiloah while the Arabs call it Silwan.

Shiloah is considered by Jews to hold historical significance to their faith. The location is referred to in the Bible, including in Isaiah (8:6), where it’s written, “the waters of Shiloah go softly.” It was a site that in ancient times facilitated the fulfillment of important Jewish rituals and is believed to sit atop an ancient cemetery holding Judean royalty.

Some 20 masked Arabs throw stones riot in east Jerusalem neighborhood as 30 Israelis marched in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Shiloah/Silwan. Several of the neighborhood's Arab residents stood on the rooftops, some chanting, "Allahu Akbar"  and "police, this is our Palestinian village".

Today, it is populated by Muslims, who oppose the presence of some 40 Jewish families who have bought homes in the neighborhood to try to gain a foothold on what they consider to be a holy site that sits just outside Jerusalem’s Old City and the holy Temple Mount. Jewish Press explains that because of the threats against them, “Jewish residents are forced to maintain a high level of security in the area, and exercise caution when travelling on the local roads, due to concerns of rock and Molotov cocktail attacks.”

  1. Once again the Islamists did what they do best…DESTROY. Firebombing a historic Jewish house in israel, a Jewish country. Between praying five times a day, stone throwing, and firebombing, those sickos have no time to work on their Nobel Prize projects. And that’s explains their brainless existence.

  2. I like what one commenter posted: Namely, for every Jewish home in Jerussalem that’s destroyed by the muzturds, the Israeli gov’t should built ten new ones in that very neighborhood! The goal should be to make ALL of Jerusalem – esp. EAST Jerusalem – muzzie-frei!! And keep countering the lies of pisslam with the Eternal Truths of Israel, the Jews and the one & only G-d!! After all, who is this POS upstart, Mohammad, the False/NON-“prophet?!?”

  3. Funny how muslims dredge up arabic corruptions of Hebrew names and placenames and try to pawn them off as the true version.

  4. Bible, Zechariah 1:14 Thus says the Lord of hosts, “I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion.”

    The wonderful promise God made thousands of years ago regarding a future time yet to come:

    Bible, Zechariah 12:9 I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

    No power on earth will EVER be able to extinguish the light of re-born Israel. Israel’s light will shine forever!

  5. From 1948-1967, when Jordan invaded and illegally occupied Judea, Samaria and east Jerusalem, Jordanian radio broadcast Friday prayers not from Al-Aqsa Mosque, but from a mosque in Amman, Jordan.

    No foreign Arab leader visited Jerusalem during the nineteen years Jordan controlled east Jerusalem.

  6. In all of history, Jerusalem/Temple Mount was Never a Holy Place for Muslims:

    13th Century Arab biographer Yakut noted: “Mecca is holy to Muslims; Jerusalem is holy to the Jews.”

    The conquest of Jerusalem and all Israel is a major goal of global jihad. The Muslim claim that the Temple Mount is their third holy place is a LIE.

    The PLO’s Palestinian National Covenant of 1964, does not mention Jerusalem even once.

    At the time of Mohammad’s death, there was not a single mosque in Jerusalem.

    • Islam’s goal is the MURDER of the human soul.

      Islam’s god is the absolute opposite of the Holy One, our Magnificent Creator, who commanded: YOU SHALL NOT MURDER.

      Barbaric mass murderer and HUGE slave trader, founder of Islam, Mohammad, declared: WAR IS DECEPTION.

      Mohammad murdered/beheaded seven hundred Jews because of the Jews enormous love for, and allegiance to our Precious Creator. The loyal Jews refused to follow another god and the new religion of Mohammad.

      ISLAM: Abu Baseer in London: “One of the goals of immigration is the revival of the duty of jihad and enforcement of power over the infidels. Immigration and jihad go together.

      ISLAM: Koran 9:5 “Kill Jews and Christians wherever you find them”.

      ISLAM: Founder of Islam, Mohammed: “I have been made victorious with terror”, “Wage war on the infidel and kill them until Islam is dominant” (Koran 8:39)

  7. Our Awesome, Magnificent Creator can choose to give Israel to Jews as an everlasting possession which God DID thousands of years ago. Muslims don’t believe that our Wonderful God should have that right.

    Jerusalem is mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible, not once in the Quran.

    Who are these mere men – Muslims, to challenge the Living God?

  8. “Peace on Earth, good will toward men”…….Just as soon as the Asslifter scourge is eliminated from the JEWISH Homeland, AND the rest of the world!!…..And MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL MY INFIDEL friends…And PISS be UPON YOU muslimes both near and far!!

  9. They also fired a rocket two days ago but it fell short. The Israeli response should be for every house damaged, ten houses will be built. Then, they will have only themselves to blame.
