Fears grow over Jerusalem unrest
Source: Financial Times
With the world’s attention focused on the war in the Gaza Strip, another front in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is quietly heating up in Jerusalem, one of the few places where Israelis and Palestinians – elsewhere divided by walls or fences — mingle and meet.
Since the killing last month of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a Palestinian teenager, by Jewish extremists, the city has seen protests and rioting nearly every night — usually clashes between Arab youths and Israeli police or soldiers.

These are Sony pieces that Palestinians in Gaza discovered in Khozaa, Khan Younes. After inquiring with several engineers, they were told that this might be a part of an Israeli drone. An Israeli drone uses camera to identify the target, records it, and then shoot to kill. These pieces are believed to a drone as a lens, RG socket, and places to insert disks were found.

British MP for Bradford West, George Galloway, says the area he represents will reject all anything Israeli — including tourists — in wake of Gaza operations: “We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel.” He was speaking at a meeting of his Respect Party in Leeds over the weekend when he made the comments. Galloway also urged residents of Leeds “to do the same.”
“We have declared Bradford an Israel-free zone,” he says at the beginning of the recording.
“We don’t want any Israeli goods. We don’t want any Israeli services. We don’t want any Israeli academics, coming to the university or the college. We don’t even want any Israeli tourists to come to Bradford, if any of them had thought of doing so,” he says.
“We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel. And you have to do the same,” he concluded.
