Despite the oppressive measures, the social, cultural,
and economical injustices against the residents of
East Jerusalem in general and of Silwan in particular,
the international silence,
and the omission
of the issue of Jerusalem from the concern of many—
we, the residents of Wadi Hilweh in Silwan,
have decided not to succumb
to the agenda of the settlers associations
which are on the rise and aim
to Judaize the village of Silwan
and Wadi Hilwa neighborhood,
and to be effective in communicating
the correct information that concerns us.
We, the residents of Wadi Hilweh,
did not delegate anyone to convey
the information on our behalf ,
and we do not allow any person
to obscure our deep rooted identity
which lies in the houses, stones,
trees, gardens, springs, and sky of our village.
the core of the human history on this pure land,
does not like the falsification
of history that comes
from the offices and platforms
of the settlers association
of right-extremist political agenda.
If the world was in fact a believer in peace,
freedom and human dignity,
it would not remain silent
in the face of this brutal attack
Silwan and would not accept
the trample of the lives of 55,000 people
for a few hundreds of settlers.
We love this village
as the baby loves its mother’s milk
and as the green does not have life
without water and sun.
Are we committing a crime by this love?
We are not dreaming
of San Francisco nor Paris.
The beauty of Silwan
stimulates our bodies and souls,
we do not accept a substitute for it
. So we, the residents of Wadi Hilweh,
have decided to open an
for those who wish to hear the voice
of the indigenous people,
to tell the stories of our forefathers
and keep the light in the way of youth,
and to keep the hope
on the thresholds of doors.
We will tell the story and history of our village
to all people without reservation
, hesitation, intolerance, or racism.
We are proud of the full history of our village
and proud of being the
owners of this beautiful legacy.
We acknowledge all the civilizations
that have passed through the village,
those who constructed the village
or even those who destroyed it and wreaked havoc.
It is part of the historical reality of the whole story;
we do not have any story based on political agenda.
We see that it is our historical
and humanitarian right to stay here,
and no right for the stranger to claim.
