Palestinians stoned far left Congressmen Elliot Engel and Gerald Nadler while they were visiting a Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives. One baseball-sized rock nearly hit Nadler in the head.
Israel Survivor Updates reported on the attack.
Palestinians also have desecrated the cemetery in recent years.
Arutz Sheva reported:
United States Democratic Congressmen Elliot Engel and Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents Malcolm Hoenlein were attacked by Arab rock throwers on Friday afternoon as they visited the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.
A large “baseball-sized” rock was thrown at the group, and just missed hitting Congressman Nadler. Both he and Rep. Engel are from New York. They spoke Saturday night at the International Committee for the Preservation of Har Hazeitim’s Emergency Forum on Violence at Mt. of Olives Ancient Jewish Cemetery.
“He’s fine. No one was hurt. I think they were waiting for their bus, and then a rock was thrown… and then Israeli police officers chased the person away. They didn’t catch them. Then they got on the bus and left,” said Nadler’s spokesman, John Doty.
