#Save Sheikh Jarrah

Sheikh Jarah is a Palestinian neighbourhood in East Jerusalem, contested and disputed Territory.

Why do settlers want to live where nobody speaks their language and

they need security to escorts them wherever they go?

We were standing the way we stand every week,

near the Ghawi family house, holding banners and chanting.

Perhaps we could soften the heart of the settlers to return the house

to the previous owner and go live where they are wanted and belong.

The settlers feel calm and comfortable walking

in the streets of Sheikh Jarrah accompanied by soldiers.

The Palestinians less so.

There are checkpoints at the entry

to the neighbourhood

& residents are asked to show their IDs upon entry.

Last week 16 years old Janah Qiswani was

hit by a sponge tipped bullet

. This week a fourteen years old

girl was arrested for

painting her face in Palestinian flag colours.

Sheikh Jarah said Salah Diab human rights defender,

is slowly becoming the

second Hebron Shuhada

Street-an apartheid

part of town where extremist settlers roam freely

and the Palestinians are afraid to leave their homes
