High Court Okays Yom Yerushalayim March Through The Arab Quarters


The High Court has rejected a petition from left-wing organization Ir Amim to move the route of a nationalist march to mark Yom Yerushalayim on June 2 which passes through the Arab Quarter of the Old City.

The march is usually attended by far-right activists and the Arab Quarter route has been the source of tensions in the past. Shopkeepers are usually told to close early and residents are made to stay at home as flag-waving nationalists march by.

In their decision, the judges note that police have committed to keep order during the march and say Ir Amim does not have standing in the case to file a petition for an injunction.
