A group of Orthodox Jews was filmed this week as they spat and shouted at Christian pilgrims carrying the four species through Jerusalem's Old City. “Israel is fully committed to maintaining the sacred right of worship and pilgrimage to the holy sites of all religions. "I condemn the ugly act of spitting on Christians and harming any person due to their religion or beliefs. In addition, there are Christian visitors from Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries. Herzog praised the Christians for coming to Jerusalem and sharing their "fraternal love of the Jewish people."
