A Palestinian family gather to drink tea near their caves using as a home after their sheds were demolished by Israeli bulldozers on 3rd January, on the grounds that their scrap metal sheds were unlicensed, in Harbetu Tana village of Nablus, West Bank on February 27, 2017. Most of the Palestinian families forced to move into caves and try to live in hard conditions and primitively

Israeli occupation authorities continue collecting money from Palestinians in East Jerusalem while they continue demolishing their houses and banning them from building new ones or expanding existing homes, Quds Press reported on Friday.

Speaking to Quds Press, Palestinian economic expert Mohamed Qirsh said that the Israeli municipal authorities in Jerusalem collected $22 million yearly from the Palestinians.

The Israeli authorities collects the money in the form of taxes and fines under the pretext of “unlicensed” building of homes by Palestinians.

He also that the Israelis had recently approved the budget for the holy city, noting that the budget excluded the planning and development of Palestinian neighbourhoods in the city.

The expert also said that the budget of the Israeli municipality included funding for building new homes in the Al-Sawahra neighbourhood in the east of the occupied part of the city.

Qirsh said that these Israeli moves are part of a direct plan aiming to evacuate Palestinians from the heart of the city. “This is part of the announced plans of the Israeli government,” he told Quds Press.

With the Palestinians forced out of other neighbourhoods and gathered into the Al-Sawahra district, it would be very easy for the Israeli occupation to isolate them, he explained. “This way, Israel will have achieved its goal, which is evacuating the city from its indigenous residents,” he concluded.

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
