Muslims rioted in Jerusalem's Silwan (Shiloach) neighborhood Friday, marking the upcoming Israel Independence Day holiday with violence.

The Arabs ambushed a passenger car at very close range, causing a female passenger light wounds. The attack was captured on camera but the mainstream press has largely ignored the story.
 
The car had a small Israeli flag on it - sold at traffic intersections during the period before the holiday as a way to exhibit pride in  Independence Day. The flags hook on to car windows and are seen on roads countrywide for weeks.
 
Border Police stationed at Shiloach used riot control gear to disperse the attackers.
 
Shiloach Arabs also hurled fire bombs and rocks at Border Police. No casualties were reported.
 
Arabs at Shiloach began rioting Monday in response to the assassination of Osama Bin Laden.
