quote:
Lupolianski asked the Israeli interior ministry to allow him to convert an entire Arab neighbourhood, known as Wadi al-Juz, into a Jewish-only neighbourhood.

His declared justification is that the "re-zoning of the area" would "enhance the unity of Jerusalem" and "strengthen the link between Jewish neighbourhoods".

The ultra-orthodox rabbi also argued that the confiscation of Wadi al-Juz would bolster "Jewish demography" in Jerusalem and ensure the safety of Jewish traffic from Jerusalem to the nearby settlement of Maali Adumim.
