Man Arrested for Blowing Shofar at Western Wall
13:09 Sep 25, '06 / 3 Tishrei 5767
by Hillel Fendel

The incident occurred around 7:30 in the morning, at the northern-most section of the accessible Western Wall - a little-known area called the Kotel HaKatan, the Small Wall. It is considered to have extra sanctity, as it stands opposite the presumed spot of the Holy of Holies of the Beit HaMikdash.
.
.
.
In the meanwhile, the other members of the prayer group came out and tried to prevent the policemen from taking Eliyahu away. At this point, the policemen started swinging their clubs violently; no one was hospitalized, but "it was a big brawl," in the words of one witness, with many people being dragged around and beaten while wearing their prayer-shawls and Sabbath suits.
.
.
.
A member of the Jerusalem Police spokesman's office, contacted by Arutz-7 for a statement on the matter and asked whether this signified a new policy towards shofar-blowing at the Wall, said, "When we have an answer for you, I will get back to you."

OK, who is this Shofar dude?

Why would he want to be blown in front of the Hotel Hakatan at 7:30 in the morning?

That's freaky shit, man.

Re: Man Arrested for Blowing Shofar at Western Wall
This just goes to show that the Jewish Government and the Jewish People are complete polar opposites. Unbelievable! The brutality of this Government toward their own people is staggering. This is not a government of God. These are wicked men hiding under the veil of righteousness. There are 2 religions in the world that are persecuted by all the others and that is none other than Christianity and Judaism. These people that govern us are not either.

It has begun!

Re: Man Arrested for Blowing Shofar at Western Wall
"The rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, told Arutz-7, "This is a very grave incident, and I have asked the local police commander, Yossi Priente, to check into it - both the violence and the prevention of the shofar blowing. It reminds us of the days of the British Mandate when Jews [had to make] super-human efforts to blow the shofar at the Western Wall."

He was referring to the 1ate 1920's, when the British, in an attempt to appease the Arabs, and following violence at the Wall, forbade shofar-blowing at the Wall. In one famous incident in 1929, a man named Moshe Segal blew the shofar at the conclusion of Yom Kippur - and was immediately arrested by the British. Though he had fasted for the previous 25 hours, the British detained him without food until midnight, when he was released. It was later reported that the release came about when then-Chief Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Kook informed the commander that he himself would not eat until Segal was released."

The British tried to appease the Arabs back in the 20's (I didn't know that), and looks like the Israeli government is doing the same thing today.

No blowing of the horn on Rosh Hoshana? Wow, that is pretty crazy.

How many holidays do they blow this horn on? Two or three in the whole year?

Outrageous.

Islam has made a huge fuss about people making cartoons or jokes about their religion. So I assumed humor was off limits as far as Islamists were concerned. But apparently it is okay to joke about the Jewish religion
