RAMALLAH, August 11 (JMCC) - Palestinian residents report finding signs written in Hebrew calling on those entering the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood to dress modestly. The area in eastern occupied Jerusalem has been the site of weekly demonstrations against the eviction of Palestinian families.
The notices, which were posted on street signs, bulletin boards, and trees, are signed by the neighborhood residents. Read
Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity organization, which participates in the weekly protest, called the signs a new pathetic provocation authored by Sheikh Jarrah settlers, which demonstrates how the radical Right – with the support of the police and Jerusalem municipality – turns a quiet Palestinian neighborhood into a Kiryat Arba outpost.
A source in the organization noted that with the help of hundreds of people who come to protest weekly, Sheikh Jarrah settlers will one day return to their illegal outposts, and the neighborhood, which has turned into the symbol of Jewish-Arab solidarity against discrimination and despoliation, will go back to being the home of the evicted Palestinian families.
