Pious Jews Stone Mission in Jerusalem; Ten Arrested

Download PDF for this date

Israeli police last night arrested ten of a crowd of several hundred religious Jews who stoned a mission in Jerusalem where a solemn mass was being celebrated. The crowd was apparently brought out by a rumor that the mass was the celebration of the conversion of a large number of Jews in the mission.

A police spokesman last night said that the “police will not tolerate any abuses, disturbances or interference with any public body or organization carrying out lawful activities.”
