0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


"Breaking news: The Israeli Supreme Court decides to halt the eviction of the Rweidi family from their houses, and orders them to pay ten thousand shekels to the State Treasury."

– Wadi Hilwe Information Center – Silwan

0202 Editor's Note:
The Rweidi family from Silwan has been fighting a legal battle over their home since the '90's against the Elad organization (Ir David Foundation, in English. Elad is an acronym in Hebrew for "to the city of David"), a Jewish group that seeks to strengthen the city's Jewish character. Elad claims the owner was absent abroad in 1967, making the land state property, so the family must be evicted.
