This happened today to my friends. They were on a study trip at the Dome of the Rock in the muslim neighbourhood in Jerusalem. I wonder where coexistence stands when some still don’t accept their own “neighbours” trying to know them. I’m not saying it does not happen on the jewish side as well, it’s just that I think it is important to remind that extremism exists and does not help at all.

You wanna talk about co-existence? Palestinian worshippers in the Noble Sanctuary were attacked twice in recent days by the Israeli army under the guise of allowing Israeli Jews to enter the area. And then your tourist friends come along and sit down like they own the place, giggling and laughing and posing for pictures. Of course, they’re not going to be welcome!

As I said, I don’t deny the intolerance on both sides. All I said was it is not a bed of roses for anyone here. Btw, tourists do take picture and marvel at the beauty of the places they visit. If the behaviour bothers the locals, they can ask them nicely to stop, and not behave like that.

There is no “both sides” here. Palestinians do have the ability to do to Israelis what the Israelis do to them day in and day out. And this is emphatically not about “intolerance.” This is about Palestinians who are constantly under attack while you condescendingly sneer at their unwillingness to host disrespectful tourists on their holy sites just days after armed Israelis attacked them in the exact same place. You as tourists are not entitled to respect in this situation. Get the hell out if you don’t like how the “locals” respond to your hubristic behavior.

How is shouting allahu Akbar extremist? Just because the tourists are latent islamophobes and the women knew how to exploit that doesn’t mean they’re terrorists.

First of all, let me tell you that they through stuff on my frirnds as well and that they are israeli muslims, not palestinians. Shouting at no one should be considered right, at least not where I come from. If they shout Alla is my God, I don’t have a problem with it. The problem is how they treated visitor, students trying to know their side, not mocking them.
Secondly, there are extremists groups on the jewish side as well, as said above, the thing is, they are not the israrli army, although they have arms and a behaviour that I despise just as much as you do.
The hashtag “palestine” I’ve written is to contemplate the ones that do not agree as the West Bank as an israeli territory as a whole.
I’m sorry if I’ve done wrong here, however to me is really important to show every side of the story, which I’m sorry to tell, are many.

Knowing that he wouldn’t be there for her wedding, a terminally ill father walked his 11-year-old down the ‘aisle’ years early with the pastor sweetly pronouncing them ‘daddy and daughter’.

Jim Zetz, 62, from Murrieta, California, who has stage 4 pancreatic cancer, proudly held his daughter, Josie’s hand during their backyard ceremony on March 14 and placed a sparkling ring on her index finger.”
