“According to the investigation, the suspects attacked the homes to force the Jewish families to permanently flee the area.”
That is the ultimate objective, in accordance with the Qur’an’s dictum: “Drive them out from where they drove you out” (2:191). The Muslim leaders in 1948 actually called on Muslims to leave Israel, in anticipation of its imminent defeat and destruction, but in “Palestinian” mythology the Muslims were driven out, and so have a responsibility before Allah to drive out the Israelis.
Six Arab residents of the Old City’s Muslim Quarter, including five minors, were arrested Sunday morning on arson charges for allegedly throwing several firebombs at Jewish homes in the area.
Police said the arrests were carried out after obtaining search warrants to each suspects’ home following an ongoing investigation.
“The six suspects attacked Jewish homes with petrol bombs in the Muslim Quarter over the last few weeks and were arrested for arson and attempted arson,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
“They were arrested in their homes overnight and taken in for questioning at the Jaffa Gate police station,” he added, noting that the homes targeted sustained serious damage from the attacks, although none of the residents were injured.
