Leftists demonstrate in Hebron and are evicted

A group of over 50 Israeli leftists, led by Yehuda Shaul and Hillel Cohen, attempted to reach Hebron late this morning, in order to protest "Israeli occupation' of the city. The group reached the Hebron Heroes Neighborhood, between Hebron and Kiryat Arba, where community youth have reestablished a presence at that site. The group planned on continuing to march to Ma'arat HaMachpela and through the city's Jewish neighborhoods, but was stopped by police and military officials. The entire area was declared a 'closed military zone' and the leftists were ordered to leave. Amidst yelling and physical resistance, Police and soldiers pushed them back, about two hundred meters, past the southern entrance to Kiryat Arba. Several members of the group were arrested, including Shaul, and another group leader, Asaf. At one point, when the group sat down in the street and refused to leave, police forcibly pulled them away.

some of these self haters will do anything to prove to the enemy that they have no loyalty to their own people.
If they hate israel and love islam so much, they should move to saudi arabia, where im sure those leftist "free thinkers" will be adored.
