Jerusalem Day at the Damascus Gate

Israelis and Palestinians waving flags and shouting chants at one another on Jerusalem Day, the day on which Israelis celebrate the reunification of Israel in 1967, when they took control of it from Jordan during the Six Day War (video taken today, 8 May 2013).

[Update: 21 of these Palestinians and 13 Jewish Youths were subsequently arrested, for ‘unregistered demonstration’ and ‘shouting racist epithets’, respectively.  Read the article in the Times of Israel here.]
