Jerusalem police evict Muslim family illegally residing in Simon the Just neigborhood

This was a job not easy to perform, but thankfully, the police and city hall made sure it'd be done, at a neighborhood the MSM would rather everyone think has an Arabic name:
Police evicted a large Palestinian family from their two homes before dawn on Wednesday, less than two days after they had threatened self-immolation over the pending loss of their two east Jerusalem homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

The demolition of the two homes owned by the Salhia family ignited tensions between Israel and the Palestinians, with calls for escalating resistance against the Jewish state.
Predictably, some of the worst anti-Israelists were against this:
The international community, including the European Union, had demanded that Israel allow the family to remain in their two adjoining homes.

In New York, United Nations Security Council members condemned the eviction and subsequent demolition of the two homes.

Ireland’s Ambassador to the UN Geraldine Byrne Nason said that such actions were contrary to the Fourth Geneva Conventions.

They also “threaten the fragile status quo in Jerusalem and risk increasing violence” in that city, she warned.
In other words, she's not willing to insist that no violence be committed by Muslims in the area. Not even the following:
Some 20 people, including members of the Salhia family were arrested during the evacuation on suspicion of violating a court order, violent fortification and disturbing public order. As of Wednesday night, five family members, including the owners of one of the homes, Mahmoud, were still in police custody.

The original stand-off with police on Monday had ended with the demolition of the family's plant nursery and two storage structures on the property.

Fearful that their home was the true target of the raid, members of Mahmoud Salhia’s family had gone on the roof with gas canisters and threatened to set themselves on fire should the police approach.

The family descended from the roof only once the police had left. Officers returned around 3 a.m. Wednesday and removed the family from the home while it was still dark and demolished the stone structure.

Police also demolished a second property on the site that belonged to the Mahmouds’ sister Alma. The two siblings had been in the midst of a protracted legal battle with the city to save their two homes located on the property. According to their attorney Walid Thaer, that battle dates back to the 1990s.

The city had designated that property lot for public use already back in 1984 but officially expropriated it in 2017 for the construction of a school to serve Arab children with special needs.
So here, city hall's willing to do a favor for Arabic residents whose children need special education and services, and it makes no difference to the EU and US government, which also responded most reprehensibly. The EU are even demanding no further construction be continued in Givat Matos. It goes without saying the way the Salhia's acted was offensive, and only explains why they would have to be evicted.

The city and police did the right thing to evict these troublemakers and arrest various other offenders as well. And it's good that the city hall is being vigilant on this issue at the Simon the Just neighborhood.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
