street closed
Reporters attempting to cover the plight of the East Jerusalem evicted families are meeting with stiff opposition from the local police…..
“These streets are closed to the public”!
“This is a special area”!
Just what is Israel trying to hide from you? The ‘only democracy in the Middle East’ where the press is censored….. makes one wonder what else the Israelis are hiding from us. It seems so ironic that the police are doing everything in their power to protect the ‘rights’ of the criminals rather than the innocent victims.
The following short report and short video is AlJazeera’s attempt to present the situation as it is…..
  Evicted Palestinians 
sleep rough in protest
  The Hanouns, a Palestinian family evicted by Israeli authorities from their home in East Jerusalem, are protesting their eviction by sleeping on the street outside the house that was for decades their home.

Al Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland reports from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in occupied East Jerusalem where the Hanouns are sleeping rough in protest.
