'We Have to Escort the Fearful Children'

One of the campaigns of the anti-occupationists is the escorting of fearful Arab children who are threatened by some Jews using violence or so claimed. A 2006 report and one from 2014.  And an article on Operation Dove.  A recent story.

And what did I recall?

Times change?

P.S.  And as for the recent Arab claim to be prevented from reaching the Haram A-Sharif in July?

Not until 1967, 19 years later, could Jews approach the Western Wall.
