Religious Jews protest Rahm Emanuel, calling him 'Anti-Semite

What do you expect? He's a member of a regime which pressures Israel to halt construction for Jews only in Jerusalem, prevent other municipal functions including regulating illegal construction by Arabs, and land grabs - and then he comes with his family for a Bar-Mitzva. It's a good thing he didn't bring Goldstone with him to the celebration...

J'lem: Right-wing activists call Emanuel 'anti-Semite'
The entourage of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel arrived at the Hurva Synagogue area in Jerusalem's Old City on Thursday to be met with "anti-Semite" calls by right-wing activists. Later on Thursday Emanuel is scheduled to celebrate his son's Bar Mitzva in the capital.

Large security forces surrounded Emanuel and his family, preventing extreme right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir from approaching him. Ben-Gvir and other activists cried out slanderous slogans against Emanuel and US President Barack Obama. Police forces eventually grabbed Ben-Gvir and pressed him to the ground.

Right-wing activists arrived at the Western Wall square on Thursday morning and waited for Emanuel.

Police warned Ben-Gvir he would be arrested should he verbally attack Emanuel. "I have a right to protest against anyone who wants to give away the Western Wall and incites against Israel. I shall file suit against each and very officer," Ben-Gvir responded.
