Jerusalem Riots Continue with Hamas's Blessing

Dozens of masked Arab rioters threw rocks at police officers and set dumpsters on fire, Thursday afternoon in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shu'afat. It marked the second day of rioting following the murder of Mohammed Khadr.

Spokesman Sami Abu-Zuhri of the Hamas terror organization said, "Hamas salutes our people in Jerusalem, who are rising up against the occupation to protect the villages and refugee camps from the attacks of settlers." Abu-Zuhri stressed that Hamas views the address as "a turning point in the confrontation with the occupation."
