OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli municipal council in occupied Jerusalem approved on Thursday the construction of a religious school (yeshiva) in the predominantly-Arab neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah in east Jerusalem.

According to the plan, a nine-story religious school will be built in the heart of this neighborhood.

The plan for the new yeshiva has been approved by the Jerusalem municipal planning and building committee about six months ago, but councilman and leftist Meretz Movement leader Yosef Alalu asked for the municipal council to reconsider the decision.

Despite the severe shortage in public construction in the neighborhood, such as welfare and health offices, schools, culture institutions and sports stadiums, Alalu said in an appeal against the plan, the committee decided to use the empty lot for a nine-story yeshiva.

Following a short and stormy debate between Alalu and rightwing activist Aryeh King, the plan was passed by a large majority of rightist and haredi council members.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

Right to Resist

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275 (2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
