Arabs Attack Jews En Route to Megillah Reading
Arutz Sheva ^ | 23/2/13 | Gil Ronen

Arabs ambushed and attacked a convoy of cars driven by Jews on the road leading to the demolished outpost of Yad Yair. No one was reported hurt.

The Jews are residents of the Dolev-Talmonim bloc in the Binyamin region. They drive to Yad Yair every year on Purim to read the Megillah there.

Usually, the pilgrimage is carried out without army approval. Since the road to Yad Yair is blocked by a military checkpoint, the residents usually drive through a roundabout way that passes through three Arab villages.

This year, the IDF brigade commander in charge of the region asked the residents to coordinate the visit with the military. "The brigade commander called us on Friday and said that if we are going up there anyway, we may as well coordinate it, and we agreed," an organizer said.

If they attack us during Purim, can we invade Ghaza during Ramadan? But why wait so long?

Interesting that they were doing fine until they started coordinating with security.. Either 1) Security has a turncoat branch or 2) Things have gotten a lot worse in the past year.

Why didn’t they hang the attackers from a gallows, in honor of Haman, and accompanied by groggers?

Why is the IDF blocking Jews from reading the Megillah at what I assume is the tomb of Mordecai's father?

Why are there Arabs in 'Eretz Yisra'el at all?
