      Police Threaten Buses Bringing Activists to E-1 Shabbat


      Arutz Sheva has learned that the police have sent threats to bus companies that were scheduled to bring hundreds of activists to spend Shabbat in the community of Mevasseret Adumim, planned for the E-1 corridor between Jerusalem and the eastern suburb of Ma'aleh Adumim, organized by the Nachla movement on behalf of its being built and settled. Members of Knesset, rabbis and other public figures were scheduled to take part in prayers, Judaism lessons and discussions.

      The police warned that if buses headed toward E-1, the drivers would be arrested and the buses would be left idle. Former mayor Daniella Weiss of the Samarian Jewish community of Kedumim made it clear in a conversation with Arutz Sheva, following consultations with judicial entities, that the police were acting illegally and that there was no way to prevent the drivers from making their way to the sight.
