More on the Israeli shofar persecution...

Here's follow up on that disgusting story I wrote about at Greater Israel of the 19yr. old Jew who was beaten and arrested by Israeli police for blowing the shofar at the Kotel on Rosh Hashanah.

WorldNet Daily: JERUSALEM – A Jewish man removed by Israeli police from a key section of the Western Wall for blowing the shofar, or ceremonial ram's horn, during prayer services for last weekend's Rosh Hashana high holiday has been barred from the holy site for the upcoming Jewish holidays, WND has learned.

The shofar traditionally is blown hundreds of times during Rosh Hashana prayers. Shmulik Ben Ruby, a spokesman for the Jerusalem Police Authority, told WND the Jewish man, 19-year-old Jerusalem resident Eliyahi Kleiman, was taken forcibly from the Western Wall last weekend for fear the sound of the shofar would offend nearby Muslims congregating on the Temple Mount, which is opposite the wall.

"Hundreds of Muslims went up to the Temple Mount. In order to prevent any tensions between the two sides, we asked Kleiman to stop blowing the shofar," Ben Ruby said. "He continued and so he was removed and detained."

The incident took place Sunday morning, the second day of the two-day Rosh Hashana holiday, when a group of about 20 Jews gathered at the northern-most section of the Western Wall commonly referred to as the "Small Wall." The little-known area stands opposite the spot at which the Holy of Holies is believed to have resided and is considered by Jews to be the most holy section of the Western Wall.

The Holy of Holies is a room within the Tabernacle of the Jewish Temple in which Jews believe God's presence dwelt. During the First Temple period, from the 10th century B.C. to 586 B.C., the Holy of Holies was said to have housed the Ark of the Covenant, which contained the Ten Commandments.

What the liberal scum doesn't seem to understand is everytime they pull an anti-Semitic stunt like this they make undecided voters move rightwing. Notice, by the way, how this incident has received absolutely no MSM airtime or coverage? Wonder why??

I bet you don't.
