Yaffo turned into war zone: Muslims riot in the Arab neighborhood for 4 nights in a row
Dozens of Muslim terrorists rioted Friday night in the mostly Arab neighborhood of Yaffo in Tel Aviv, for the fourth consecutive night of violent disturbances.
A large number of garbage bins, trees, two parking cars and a truck were set on fire by the terrorists.
In addition, Muslim terrorists threw a firebomb that burst into flames causing extensive damage to a municipal building. Responding firefighters put out the fires at around 4:00 am on Saturday.
The municipality said it views gravely the firebomb attack, carried out as a symbolic act aimed at damaging government property.
“Those who are carrying out these acts are a handful of people who don’t represent Yaffo residents, who respect and trust the municipality. We will go ahead with the plan to build a shelter for the homeless as the court authorized. We won’t accept any violent acts against municipality employees or vandalism to public property,” the Tel Aviv-Yaffo municipality said in a statement.
The Israel Police said that they will “continue working to bring lawbreakers to justice, who not only caused damage to government property and symbols but whose thuggish behavior is disrupting civilian life, endangers human lives and causes damage to property.”
The riots are organized by a local Islamic organization over the city’s plan to build a hostel for the homeless at a site where two years ago was uncovered a Muslim cemetery.
The cemetery previously housed a Muslim soccer field, a Tipat Halav mother-and-child clinic, and a shelter for homeless people. The graves were moved in 1936 for sanitary reasons.
Members of the Islamic Council, who weren’t aware of the cemetery until two years ago, seized control over the area and put up gravestones for non-existent human remains.
A Tel Aviv court rejected claims by the Islamic Council to preserve the space, saying that the cemetery had not been used for at least 100 years and had been legally a public space since at least the 1940s without any legal objections.
“The project’s construction is a response to public need, and uses land which has not been used as a cemetery for over 100 years, and the Muslim community never before treated it as possessing holiness or having a religious affinity,” Judge Avigayil Cohen said.
Cohen’s arguments, however, do not seem to have convinced some Muslim terrorists residents of Yaffo, who said they will continue to riot against the destruction of the imaginary cemetery.
