Israel approves ultranationalist Jewish march in Jerusalem

Israeli authorities said they have given the go-ahead for Jewish nationalists to march through the main Palestinian thoroughfare in Jerusalem’s Old City on May 29, in a decision that threatens to re-ignite violence in the holy city. Each year, thousands of Israeli nationalists participate in the march, waving flags, singing songs and in some cases, chanting anti-Arab slogans, as they pass by Palestinian onlookers and businesses.
