Settlers perform Talmudic rituals outside a confiscated Palestinian family home


OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, Tens of extremist Jewish settlers celebrated outside the house they recently arrogated from a Palestinian family in Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of east Jerusalem.

Local sources told PIC correspondent that in addition to singing and dancing in circles the extremist settlers performed Talmudic rituals outside the house of al-Ghawi family, who were evicted from their house by the Israeli authorities and their house given to Jewish settlers.

The extremist settlers celebrated under the protection the Israeli occupation police and special forces who also participated in the rituals.

The sources added that the Palestinian residents of the neighbourhood responded by playing Quran tapes in their houses, cars and mosques.

The sources also said that a group of locals gathered outside the evicted family’s tent to show solidarity with the family

Amal al-Qasem, member of the Sheikh Jarrah committee said that the prayers performed by the settlers “were a challenge to our sensibilities, as Friday is a holy day for Muslims around the world. I fear that in the coming days the Zionist police which protects those settlers will bar us from leaving our homes during their prayers and festivals.”

“I hope they leave, because it was them who took over the house of al-Ghawi family. Their presence and their provocations from time to time will not lead to peace or security,” she added.

She also said that the issue of Sheikh Jarrah is a just one, the residents are refugees housed under UN supervision and the UN should do something to help stop settlers from taking over the rest of the houses in the neighbourhood.

    I was told today why Jews in the United States do not celebrate Halloween. “It celebrates death.” I was told. “Judaism is about celebrating life.”


    “But,” I asked, “when Palestinians die and Israeli Jews are happy, isn’t that also celebrating death?”

    Response: Silence.

    More and more people around the world will come to see themselves by the grace of their God as not being Palestinians, and so will identify with them whenever they read of abuses of them – which is on most days.

    The great paradox of it all is that the very people who are so sorely being abused, and for so long now, are the descendants of the Biblical Jews who converted to Islam with its advent in the 8th Century.

    That’s when Judaism would have generally petered out, but for it being picked up by the Khazar people in the region between the Black and the Caspian Seas.

    It is the Palestinians who are thus the very people these faux Jews are claiming to be, and maybe were the Palestinians to confront these interlopers at the eyeball to eyeball level and tell them that they have sufficiently read Dr Shlomo Sand’s work on this and to remind them that Khazaria – being modern day Georgia, is their homeland and not any part of Palestine.

    But in the meantime to please withdraw, for now, to the misnamed Jewish State, since the West Bank is most certainly not disputed territory as it belongs to the descendants of the Biblical Jews who are not Khazars.
