‘I feel like the government is abandoning me’

June 17, 2016  

Nava Segev, a resident of Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood, spoke with Arutz Sheva about the lawlessness and the pain of knowing that her children and grandchildren are afraid to visit.

Terrorists threw Molotov Cocktails at her home on Friday morning. No one was injured, though a window was damaged.

“I woke up and I thought that my neighbor spilled something. Suddenly I saw police at the door. Only then did I see the damage and I understood that my life had been saved,” she said.

Segev explained that she would have been burned to death had the firebombs penetrated the home. “If what happened in Duma had happened to me, I and my home would have been completely burned,” she said referring to the deadly firebombing at a Palestinian village in 2015.

This is the eighth time that Molotov cocktails were thrown at Segev’s home. “I don’t feel that the State of Israel is protecting me. My grandchildren and children visit my home. The Prime Minister talks about security, but where is the security?”

She doesn’t intend to leave the neighborhood and acknowledges that it would be difficult to sell her home due to the attacks, even if the government began taking action. “How can I continue living here when I feel that the government is abandoning me? I am living here on borrowed time.”

The Arabs who threw the projectiles have still not been caught, though the road to the nearby Jabel Mukaber neighborhood has been temporarily blocked by the police.

Authorities have since arrested four Arabs from Hevron who were illegally residing in Jerusalem.
