ISRAEL TO RAZE JABAL MUKABER HOMES TO MAKE WAY FOR NEW ROAD

Dozens of Palestinian homes have become threatened with demolition as the Israeli municipal authority in Occupied Jerusalem is still embarking on building a link road passing through the Palestinian neighborhood of Jabal Mukaber.

Lawyer Ra’ed Bashir, a member of the Jabal Mukaber land defense committee, told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that the road, to be named the American Street, would be 32 meters wide, thus leading to the demolition of 57 Palestinian homes.

Bashir added that the Israeli municipality would not build new homes for the Palestinians whose current ones are slated for demolition to make space for the new road and would only allow commercial structures and projects to be built around it.

He noted that Jabal Mukaber land defense committee managed to extract a court order delaying the demolition of 35 homes for five years, but the Israeli occupation authority did not comply and decided to go ahead with the road project.

He also said that the residents of the neighborhood only want the IOA to make the road 12 meters wide instead of 32 meters, to provide their area with infrastructure, and to allow residential construction around it.

Although the Israeli municipality claims that the road project is intended to serve the Palestinian residents, specialists in Jerusalem affairs confirm that the facts on the ground reflect that it will be built to connect the settlement of Har Homa (Jabal Abu Ghneim), south of Jerusalem, with the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim, east of the city.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.


Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
