More than two dozen Jews under heavy police escort moved into six more homes purchased by a Jewish investment company in Silwan Valley, including the City of David complex, in eastern Jerusalem Monday night.

A group of Arabs hurled firecrackers and stones at police in a failed attempt to enter one of the buildings, and one policeman was treated at the scene for head wounds.

Three of the homes are located in the City of David complex, located on the road opposite the Dung Gate that is the entrance to the Western Wall Plaza. At least one of the other homes is situated near the ancient Silwan Pool.

The Jewish Press has learned that approximately two dozen youth moved into the newly-purchased homes as part of a strategy to show an immediate presence prior to families moving in.

One of the youth, “A.” said he is part of a group of four young men who are in the two-story house near the Silwan Pool. He described the house as “very beautiful” and recently renovated. “A” added there was no violence and that the group intends to stay there for another day or two.

One resident of City of David said there is a long waiting list of families waiting for buildings to be purchased by Jews.

The leftist camp, backed by the European Union and Obama administration, has continuously protested the presence of Jews in the Arab neighborhood.

Jews, including a large group from Yemen, lived in the Silwan area decades ago but were forced out by the British during the period of the Mandate even though properties were purchased by Jews.

The City of David organization keeps its lips shut tight on how buildings are bought, and the recent purchases are no exception.

Its spokesman Ze’ev Orenstein told The Jewish Press that the organization was not “directly involved” in the purchases, which were carried out by the Kendell Financing company.

Kendell’s lawyer Avi Segal told The Jewish Press, “Kendell Finance is a company that deals with property and investments. The company chose to invest in buildings in Jerusalem that were bought legally.”

All other questions to Segal and Orenstein were met with a wall of silence, which is the smartest strategy because anything they say will be held against them by Peace Now, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and anyone else who cannot stand to see Jews violating the sacred principles of the holy ”peace process” that demands the expulsion of Jews from the same neighborhood from which the British once expelled them.

Al sources are mum on the purchase price of the homes and the whereabouts of the previous Arab owners.

It is widely accepted that the buildings fetch a hefty price, especially since the Arab sellers know that Jews are willing to pay through the nose to return to the area.

The Arab sellers usually operate through a third party to protect themselves and their families from their brethren who consider them traitors for selling to Jews.

The Obama administration can be expected to frown on the new purchases in Silwan Valley.

Let them frown.

    Correctly said. And I am sure what I am about to say will come as surprise… HHHOHOHOHOO 🙂
    I prefer that enemies see me as a very harsh SOB. Try my best to come across like that. Soldiered for two military and worked most of my life as a Senior – Fellow Engineer also for two military establishments. Received OT Lebanon for my service as a soldier in that War. Never gave slack to anyone trying me.
    I know that most people is not cut to join on frontal battles, yet, we need such as there may be to come to the call.
    Here there are still excellent military officers hidden in the grotesque chaff piling up front.
    The civilian population must iron up and sever the chaff to allow real commanders to fill the positions.
    I strongly believe that we must prepare to face Islam at its worst. Or more than just Islam.

    @ bernard ross:

    Being universally hated is a curse, but it is also a blessing because it liberates you to do what must be done.

    You don’t have to worry about offending anyone because everyone already despises you.

    Israel must come to terms with its pariah status.

    Only then will Israelis be willing to take the actions essential to survival.

    Irony implies inconsistency.

    There is no inconsistency when those who despise themselves support someone who despises them.

    Don’t tell Ted he is going in the other direction.

  3. I wonder what does it take for us as a people to understand the Islamic beasts plans.
    As we are called to do since thousands of years back… They must be eliminated from Eretz Israel.
    Either we do that or they WILL DO IT to us.

  4. It is a ptiy that jews must hide like thieves in the night to exercise the right to live in the jewish homeland

    The leftist camp, backed by the European Union and Obama administration, has continuously protested the presence of Jews in the Arab neighborhood.

    Jews, including a large group from Yemen, lived in the Silwan area decades ago but were forced out by the British during the period of the Mandate even though properties were purchased by Jews.

    All of these swindlers, defamers, demonizers and delegitimizers of the jewish people deserve to be spat upon for the despicable filth which they are. When they suffer, I can see why and I am without empathy. The euros are the greatest defamers and swindlers of the Jewish people and the world follows suit. The jewish leftists and religious kapos aid them in their despicable agenda.
    Israel and the jewish people need more like these Jews willing to stand up for jews rather than scurrying to hide behind the crocodile of appeasement.

  5. There’s just one thing wrong with this picture, from the standpoint of my values. I’m referring to the fact that local Jerusalem cops were on hand to defend the Jews who bought the property. So what’s wrong with that, in terms of the making Jewish nationalist Zionism work in practice as well it does in theory?

    Just this. There should have been members of an open secret Jewish street gang of tough guys, armed with 42-ounce Louisville Slugger baseball bats like the kind the Babe used to smack all those balls out of Yankee Stadium 80 years ago. Plus switchblade knives sharpened like razors, and if any of their opposition showed up with firepower, then our guys should have on hand a few Uzis or even a couple of old reliable Thompson M1A1 submachine guns with 30-round magazines loaded with 230-grain hardball ammo.

    You want to control the streets? And you want to get rid of some of those Arabs from those streets? So do I. But that takes manpower of just the right type, motivated to break bones and adorn enemy faces with the scars of authentic Jewish artwork.

    And no, don’t feed me any bullshit about law and order, or what nice Jewish guys do to make friends, influence people and fill the world with love and peace.
