PA delegitimizes Israel by renaming it "the Interior that was occupied in 1948"

Headline: “Hundreds held Friday prayers at Sheikh Jarrah as a sign of solidarity with the Salem family (i.e., a family of illegal Arab squatters) that is threatened [with eviction]”


“Hundreds of foreign solidarity activists from the peace movement and Palestinian activists from Jerusalem and the Interior that was occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel) participated in the weekly solidarity vigil in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood [of Jerusalem] (see note below -Ed.).”




The Sheikh Jarrah protests – Israeli courts have ruled that four Palestinian families living in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem are to be evicted because they are living illegally in properties owned by Jews who were expelled in the 1948 Israeli War of Independence. The Palestinian residents were offered to stay if they would pay rent, but they refused and instead appealed to the Israeli Supreme Court. In April 2021 the planned eviction led to clashes between Palestinian residents and Israeli police, which continued into May and served as one of the pretexts for further violent rioting during the Fatah/Hamas Riot and Rocket War 2021. A hearing scheduled by the Supreme Court for May 10, 2021, was postponed following intensified Palestinian riots and unrest both in Sheikh Jarrah and in East Jerusalem in general.
