Two friends among the groups of young religious teenagers who came to the Old City’s Muslim Quarter for the Flag March say they arrived to “demonstrate for Jewish identity,” according to Tzvika, 16, from Maale Adumim.
When asked what they thought the local Arab population might feel about the march, Ilan, 15, also from Maale Adumim, says: “Of course it bothers them. It bothers me that they’re in my country.”
