Prevent security threats: Don´t open the Tzion Road to Arab Traffic
Hebron and Kiryat Arba leaders have been informed by the IDF central command thatTzir Tzion, the Zion Road, beginning about a kilometer north of the entrance to Kiryat Arba and continuing into Hebron, will soon be opened to Arab vehicular traffic. The last time the roadblocks on this road were removed and Arab traffic allowed free travel on it, two Israelis were killed in the space of 12 hours: contractor David Cohen and Kiryat Arba councilman Hezzy Mualem. This is the only road connecting Hebron to Kiryat Arba, used hundreds of times a day by Jews traveling from Hebron to Kiryat Arba and from there to Jerusalem, and vice-versa. Unfortunately, Israel has witnessed a new type of terror in the past year, utilizing moving vehicles. Reopening this road is a sure recipe for continued terror aimed at Hebron-Kiryat Arba residents and the hundreds of thousands of visitors who tour the city annually.
Make your voice heard: Petition the Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and the rest of the Israeli government: Don't abandon Hebron's Jews! Don't create new security threats, endangering their lives.Keep Tzir Tzion closed to Arab traffic!
