I’ve been asked by a few people if the Flag Parade is today.

The answer is no – although as far as I understand it may be happening next week.

Ben Gvir said on the news he’s up to stuff today – but that’s not to be confused with the flag parade:

Far right MK Itamar Ben Gvir has said he will go to the Old City of Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate to give a speech Thursday afternoon, after he was banned from conducting a march through the Muslim Quarter and up to the Temple Mount by the Police Commissioner Yaakov Shabbatai.Ben Gvir, the head of the ultra-nationalist Otzma Yehudit party, sought to conduct his own “March of Flags” in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City after the police refused to allow right-wing activists from conducting the event this Thursday due to security concerns. CLICK on here to read more from the JPost.
