“The Jews will not be driven out of Jerusalem,” Daniel Luria, Executive Director of Ateret Cohanim told Arutz Sheva on Sunday, as he visited a communal tent of mourning for Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, who was murdered by a terrorist in the Old City of Jerusalem last week, along with 21-year-old Aharon Banita Bennett.

“The Arab world thinks that they can drive us out, but not violence, not terror will take away one Jew from here,” he declared.

“We are doubling our efforts to make sure there is more Jewish life here,” Luria continued. “We are calling on the Jewish world to walk along these streets. The Jewish world has to understand that Arab terror and incitement will not drive us out of here.”

“Now is the time to actually come to Israel,” he said, calling on Jews “not to be scared of Arab terror because that’s handing them a victory.”
