      Im Tirtzu: No Sovereignty on Mt Scopus

      Amit Barak of Im Tirtzu told the Knesset Committee for the Interior and Environment on Wednesday, "We have lost the sovereignty over Mt Scopus, and students around the Hebrew University campus have been abandoned by security authorities due to considerations of political correctness. the Arabs of Issawiya are constantly hurling firebombs and rocks at Israelis in the area, and not enough countermeasures have been employed.

      Tom Nisani also gave first hand testimony of the constant terrorist attacks he encounters with his student neighborhood watch team, some members of which are local Arabs fed up with Issawiya terrorism.
