‘The Jews are our dogs’ heard in Jerusalem’s Old City

‘The slogan The Jews are our dogs’ is back – this time chanted by Palestinian boys in Jerusalem’s Old City. This dehumanising age-old cry recalls that Jews are worthy of contempt and must submit to Muslims. The Jewish Voice tells us that a Palestinian named Mohammed Nashwan recorded the incident on video and posted it on Twitter.  It is disheartening evidence that the old bigotry remains.

A video posted on Twitter has showed young Arab children taunting and insulting Jewish worshippers as they walked through the Old City of Jerusalem. 

 The video showed a group of at least four young Arab boys calling in Arabic “Palestine in Ladna” and “Elihud Kilbana,” “Palestine [is] our land” and “the Jews our dogs,” as a group of about 16 Jewish men walked by, some of them holding the hands of small children or carrying them in their arms.

 The Jews were dressed in traditional black suits and hasidic outfits and appeared to be heading to sabbath prayers at the Western Wall on Friday evening, Channel 20 news reported.
The group was walking past stores on Hagai Street in the Old City and that adults joined in the shouting of profanities.
