Palestine

Thu Jun 2 2005 Ethnic Cleansing In Jerusalem
"The Israeli municipality of Jerusalem is preparing to bulldoze an entire Palestinian neighbourhood in the city’s annexed Arab sector, igniting fury from local residents and the Palestinian prime minister. Jerusalem’s municipal architect, Uri Shetrit, said the council was readying to destroy 88 homes, but the date had yet to be decided. House destruction orders hang over 1,000 Palestinians living in Silwan, just outside the walls of the Old City. If the bulldozers are called in, the operation will be one of the largest collective destruction operations of Palestinian houses in the Arab quarter of Jerusalem since it was occupied by Israel in 1967." Israel is also planning to knock down a 20 -year-old mosque in Al-Quds (occupied East Jerusalem), as part of its steady demolition policy in the holy city. While Palestinian homes on one side of the wall are being torn down Israel has announced plans to build 22 more homes in its largest West Bank settlement.
