Israeli Police Removing Palestinian Flags in Jewish Neighborhood in Jerusalem

In the Mea Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem, whose residents are known to be fiercely anti-Zionist, Palestinian flags regularly fly from the rooftops and hang over the streets. The residents do not recognize the authority of the State of Israel, and they make it clear that Israeli police are not welcome there. But the state seems to feel threatened by the flags, and once in a while the police march into the neighborhood’s narrow streets and allies to cut them down.
