MK Frij: Jerusalem Day Is 'a Day of Hatred and Provocation'

MK Esawi Frij (Meretz) said today (Sunday) that "Jerusalem Day has turned into a day of hatred and provocation, in which hundreds of provocateurs march through the middle of the Muslim Quarter as if they owned the land, while residents are ordered to close their stories and the hide in their homes, away from the uninvited intruders."

"In the manner that it is celebrated today, Jerusalem Day only adds to the polarization and the hatred which threatens to destroy the city. Jerusalem has become a pawn in the hands of extreme right-wingers, who work tirelessly on Jerusalem Day and the rest of the year in order to incite the city and to destroy it," he added.
