So the yeshiva student who caused this incident with the spitting went along with his father and rabbis to meet with the Armenian clergy to apologize. They were courteous and accepted the apology with kindness.
Apparently, a special Knesset committee is meeting these days to discuss the problem. There seems to be ongoing harrassment which amounts to the, say, desecration of Jewish gravesites and schools that we so abhor when the antisemites do it to the Jews.
Seriously, if the Knesset doesn’t create some severe penalties for these HATE CRIMES, and engage the police to severely enforce them, we should all bow our Jewish heads in shame.
Participants in the meeting, including Christian clergymen and representatives from ministries and the Jerusalem Municipality, confirmed that the problem was widespread and that incidents of harassment were not generally reported to the police.
But the harassment continues: A few days ago, Stars of David were spray-painted on the entrance to the Monastery of the Cross, not far from the Knesset. The Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathedral, located near the Jerusalem police headquarters in the Russian Compound, has suffered similar vandalism.
