Baruch Marzel is celebrating Purim by going out with the Jewish residents of Hevron on a humorous procession from Tel Rumeida towards the Tomb of the Patriarchs. Once they reach the holy site, the group will hold a Megillah reading.
Before the festivities, though, he found time spoke with Arutz Sheva about yesterday's attack in Brussels. "Over the past few years they have been coming to Hevron, all the anarchists from Europe who are trying to help our enemies. They want to make it easier for them to hurt us," he said.
"It's no longer politically correct to continue the pogroms against the Jews, so they came to help our enemies do their work for them. I have no tears in my eyes now when I hear about Europeans under attack," Marzel explained.
Returning to the subject of Hevron, Marzel expressed his confidence that the local children will be happy to celebrate Purim, as they are every year. "Hevron is a city where children always walk around freely, even during the difficult days. It's calm here. We live our lives in happiness and I believe the Jewish children in Hevron are able to walk around in freedom, more so than children in Brussels.
