Police conduct, stopping, searching a peaceful pedestrian,
relative to hearsay of past joint smoking, then trying to conduct warrantless search in his residence, after they had found nothing on him, should be deemed additional evidence of discrimination in law enforcement in Zion Square - a serious violation of Human Rights.

Zion Square, Jerusalem, August 25 - two armed Israel Police appeared today
around 1:00pm in the Jerusalem Hostel on Zion Square, and asked to search the
belongings of an Austrian student/tourist, staying in the Hostel.
The Hostel refused to permit the Israel Police to conduct warrantless search,
and the two armed police immediately left. Upon departing, the policeman said
that the Hostel should not expect police to arrive next time it called for
According to the subject of the attempted search, he was walking down Jaffa
Road near Zion Square, when he was stopped by police driving in a police
car. The police told the tourist that they had information that he had
smoked joints. They searched the tourist on the spot in the street, but
found nothing on him. Next they took him to the Hostel and demanded to
search his belongings.
It should be noted that the police were photographed from close range in the
Jerusalem Hostel lobby during the exchange, conduct that could be
life-threatening for the photographer, if done in the United States today.
Human Rights Alert (NGO) has routinely reported discrimination by law
enforcement in Zion Square in recent months.
