A month ago, the Sumrein family in Silwan, who live right beside the City of David Tourist site, received an order to leave their home of the last fifty years.  Numerous East Jerusalem residents have been evicted from their homes, forced out by Elad, the deep-pocketed settler organization bent on Judaising the least Jewish neighborhoods  of Jerusalem.


International solidarity activists gather at the home of the Sumrein family in Silwan, East Jerusalem (Aaron Rotenberg, PNN).
What is different this time around is that the eviction notices were brought by Himnuta, an organization that is actually a subsidiary of the Jewish National Fund. The JNF is as mainstream as Zionist organizations go. Personally, as a young student at Jewish day school in Toronto I have fond memories of placing change in the blue and white JNF “charity” boxes we had in each class.
The JNF mythology of rebuilding a barren land has long since been shattered for me, most recently with the continued demolitions carried out by the JNF in al-Araqib, an unrecognized Bedouin village. Rabbis for Human Rights began a campaign calling attention to JNF’s involvement to the Sumrein family’s situation in Silwan, targeting an international audience.
Mass emails sent to the JNF found the organization distancing itself, trying to push the blame onto Elad. However, unable to deny that the eviction orders were brought forward by Himnuta, the JNF, in response to the pressure has held off on the eviction that was slated for this Monday.
Silwan has been a volatile neighborhood, being located so close to the Old City. Politically motivated archeology on the Jewish side has claimed to have discovered the ancient city of King David and under dubious archeological grounds.

History of Israeli Genocide

Essential Read: The Promised Land ~ by Jad KhairAllah



Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
