My sources involved with Tuesday's anticipated march into the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm, have absolutely no clue as to what will, or will not, end up happening. The march is expected to be led by MK Micha'el Ben-Ari (National Union).
Activist and assistant to Micha'el Ben-Ari, Itamar Ben-Gvir has long suggested that the march, originally planned to take place months ago, was to demonstrate the double standards amongst government officials. At the time, he was anticipating that they marchers would not being allowed into the city.
A limit of one hundred was set as the maximum number of marchers which will be allowed to participate. Spaces on the list should already have been reserved.
For my part, I would like to suggest that one or more of the following four case scenarios will occur:
1. An excuse will be found by police to postpone the march,...yet again.
2. Security will not be sufficient, so that any number of "accidents" will occur causing harm to the Jewish participants.
3. Arab residents will be set up to be wounded in one way or another, so that Jews can be blamed, and be further demonized by the news media.
4. Petty financial claims will be made by police and/or the City of Umm al-Fahm against the organizers of the march and/or the participants.
YNET reports on the increasing tension of the situation.
Umm al-Fahm: 'Marzel, tomorrow we'll dig your grave'
Sharon Roffe-Ofir, 27 Adar 5769/March 23, 2009
Residents of Arab city plan series of protests against rightist rally set for Tuesday; Balad MK Zahalka warns against use of weapons, says it could lead to 'major disaster.' Police on high alert, deploy 2,500 officers to maintain public order
My response is this:
The left and Arabs can march through Hevron, come en masse, threatening to smash through the gates of Beth-El and Givath Asaf.
"Israeli" Arabs travel freely into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and have won the "right" to bypass qibbutz acceptance committees and live in Qibbutz Qatzir.
But Jews can't enter Um Al Fahm. ....Typical leftist double standards
Stay tuned. I hope to provide you with links to first-hand reports later on Tuesday.
