Come Protest Arab 'Price Tag' Violence

On February 25 there'll be an EMERGENCY PUBLIC FORUM to protest what they call the "Arab Version of 'Price Tag' Violence on Mt. of Olives"


The International Committee for the Preservation of Har Hazeitim is calling to turn back the newest round of violence on the Mt. of Olives Cemetery. 

The oldest and largest Jewish cemetery in the world, this site is subjected to non-stop violence against visitors, grave desecrations, an unlawful mosque expansion, illegal building – all part of a concerted Arab effort to assert control over the burial site used by Jews for 3,000 years.

Keynote speakers Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Daniel Ayalon and Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Exec. Vice Chair Malcolm Hoenlein, with Knesset Members Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), Yoel Hasson (Kadima) & Isaac Herzog (Labor), will explore today's urgent concerns & review progress made in recent months.

When: The English-language program will begin at 8:30 pm sharp, Saturday, February 25, 2012
Where: Jerusalem Great Synagogue (56 King George St / Jerusalem)
