Following Friday prayers, hundreds of Muslim worshipers throw rocks at police who disperse rioters with stun grenades.
They just love to riot and throw rocks at people.
Of course well-meaning and ignorant progressives tell themselves that Arab-Palestinian violence against Jews is Israel's fault. The truth of the matter is that Arabs have been throwing stones at Jews in the Middle East for centuries.
This is not about Israel or the "occupation." It is about a theologically inspired hatred toward Jews that goes back to the days of Muhammad. Arabs in the Middle East tend to look down upon Jews as inferior (dhimmis)... if not the children of apes and pigs... and therefore Jewish sovereignty on any land that was once controlled by the Umma is repellent to them.
Thus they throw rocks.
If this conflict were really about the fact that the local Arabs do not have a state for themselves, then they would have accepted such a state on any number of the numerous occasions when they have been offered statehood.
They've refused statehood for themselves in peace next to the Jewish one since at least the Peel Commission of 1937.
Yet Barack Obama thinks that the reason that the Palestinians do not have a state is because Jews are building housing for themselves in places like Shiloh.
What a disgrace.
