Sheikh Jerrah April 2011

A large demo and march to protest the ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem.  With Palestinian flags held high and a mixed Israeli-Palestinian crowd this was an impressive sight. The Israeli riot police, having been humiliated in court chose not to show their ugly faces.  The settlers too were no where to be seen.

Not far from Sheikh Jerrah, in the old city’s muslim quarter one can see more and more Israeli flags raised on houses as Zionist zealots take over more and more houses there.   This is a clear attempt to rid the Old City of its Palestinian population. One can hope that soon the marches will go from Sheikh Jerrah through the Old City to Silwan in protest of this trend.
