Hebron protestors demand property taken in '29
By Nadav Shragai
About 1,000 people attended a demonstration in Hebron yesterday
to demand that stolen Jewish property be returned. The property
was stolen by Arabs in 1929, following an Arab pogrom that killed
67 Jews and drove the rest of the Jewish community out of the city.
Two speakers at the rally were survivors of that pogrom:. The
demonstrators also urged that Jews be allowed to return to the
city's wholesale market. Settlers evacuated the market
voluntarily last year in exchange for a promise that they could
return later, but Attorney General Menachem Mazuz subsequently
vetoed their return.
