Lebanese university lecturer warns Israelis: “Settler, leave! Your life is in danger”

Lebanese university lecturer warns Israelis: “Settler, leave! Your life is in danger… the resistance fighter will come at you with a weapon and a knife”

Lebanese university lecturer on international law Hassan Jouni: “A feeling has begun to appear that the end of the occupation and the colonialism, the end of this oppressive entity is coming… We have started a new equation: The equation of strong deterrence. Settler, leave! Your life is in danger every day. Watch out, look right and left, behind you and in front of you, and above you, the resistance fighter will come at you with a weapon and a knife.”

Hassan Jouni made this statement during a broadcast on the Jerusalem Day flag march – an Israeli national holiday that marks the reunification of Jerusalem after the Six Day War in 1967 when Israel liberated East Jerusalem from Jordanian rule. It is celebrated on the 28th of the Hebrew month of Iyar with celebrations and ceremonies throughout Israel. A flag march is traditionally held in Jerusalem, which begins in the city center, goes through the Old City, and ends at the Western Wall. Jerusalem Day has regularly been met by violent Arab riots, particularly in Jerusalem.
