Occupied Jerusalem (QNN) - The Dutch government has called on Israeli occupation authorities to “immediately” stop its forced displacement of a Palestinian family from its house in Sheikh Jarrah neighbirhood in East Jerusalem.

“Ongoing attempt to evict a Palestinian family from their East Jerusalem home is contrary to international law and risks further escalation,” tweeted, Hans Docter, the Dutch ambassador to ‘Israel’.

The Dutch ambassador added, “calls on the Israeli authorities to stop the eviction immediately.”

The European Union: "[Israeli] evictions and demolitions are illegal under international law and significantly undermine the prospects for peace as well as fuel tensions on the ground."

Details of the forced eviction in Sheikh Jarrah (Jerusalem)

A Palestinian man, whose family is facing imminent eviction, threatened to set off gas canisters on the roof of his home on Monday in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in occupied East Jerusalem, rather than let Israeli forces force them out.

Dozens of Israeli police officers stormed the home of the Salhiya family, where 40 people live, ordering them to evacuate their property.

Some family members refused to obey the Israeli police order and barricaded themselves on the roof with gas canisters, while a team of Israeli negotiators attempted to convince them to come down.
Israeli media reported that Mahmoud Salhiya had threatened to set himself on fire if the eviction order was carried out.

"We've been in this home since the 1950s," said Salhiya family member Abdallah Ikermawi from the roof of the home.

"We don't have anywhere to go," he said in quotes provided by the Sheikh Jarrah Committee organisation.

Sheikh Jarrah has been a significant flashpoint over the past year, after Israel tried to expel Palestinian families from the area last May to make way for Israeli settlers.

The events had led to widespread protests in the occupied West Bank and Israel's mixed cities of Arabs and Jews, and a large-scale military operation in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces on Monday prevented activists from entering the area, located north of Jerusalem's Old City, leaving the Salhiyas to face the eviction order alone.

Meanwhile, Instagram blocked Palestinian activist Muna el-Kurd from live streaming Israeli forces preparing to expel the family from their home to her 1.6 million followers.

“They silenced it. It mustn’t be told; it could cause a whole scandal. I don’t want to talk about it, but it happened. What can you do? It happened."

This is what the former Israeli soldier Moshe Diamant told the film director Alon Schwartz in a new documentary film that goes back to the affair of the Palestinian village #Tantura.

Akevot’s researcher Adam Raz told Haaretz about the new testimonies about the battle of #Tantura, and about the code of silence among the soldiers who were there – and among all of us – that prevents any discussion about what happened.

Quote:
Our grandparents have viscerally narrated the harrowing massacres upon which the Zionist state was built.

But our testimonies aren’t enough. It takes the “confessions” of an ex-soldier or the belated “miraculous epiphanies” of foreign human rights orgs for the world to listen.


Quote:
When we as Palestinians speak about this ongoing and ignored ethnic cleansing, inherent to Zionist ideology, we are at best "passionate" and at worst "angry and hateful."

But in reality, we are simply reliable narrators.


Quote:
We're stuck endlessly showing bloody photos of our dead & subjecting our children to dehumanizing, gazing cameras.

But the proof is daily & abundant. The answer is there. My grandmother's haunting testimonies have more authority than an Israeli soldier's perfunctory confession.

Story of the Ethnic Cleansing of Yalu



On this day 54 years ago, my family was ethnically cleansed from our village, Yalu. Israel violently erased us from our land, but never replaced us with settlers. It figures prominently in Israeli greenwashing campaigns. Our only crime was being in Israel's way. This is our story.

During the 1948 Nakba, Zionist militias that later formed the Israeli army tried to conquer the Latrun villages (Yalu, Imwas, Bayt Nuba). Local resistance overpowered the Zionists' superior weaponry. My grandfather, an 18 year old orphan, was among those who defended our land.

As Israel's Defense Minister in 1967, Moshe Dayan returned to Yalu, Imwas and Bayt Nuba with a personal vengeance due to the humiliating defeat that local resistance handed his battalion in 1948. He ordered the villages razed and its residents emptied.

A Yalu elder was blind, and was crushed to death under the rubble of his own home in the 1967 conquest. He was unable to flee in time. I think of Israel's "warnings" to Palestinians of Gaza before they bomb their homes, giving them nowhere to seek shelter, when I think of him.

Members of our extended family were missing for months. The people of Latrun were forced to move by foot towards either Ramallah or Jordan. My family ended up in Jordan. Each night, my grandfather would drive from refugee camp to refugee camp looking for his brother's family.

Months. Months of your life go by, not knowing whether your family is living or dead. To this day, some members of my extended family still live in refugee camps. Any negotiated "peace" that excludes them is what Kanafani called a "conversation between the sword and the neck"

Pieces of the homes remain. I love my great uncle. He doesn't say much, is quite stoic, has an acerbic wit. He's delivered some of the funniest one-liners I've ever heard. He wept when he recognized tile from his destroyed childhood home, visiting Yalu ~40 years after our Nakba.

The villages of Yalu, Imwas and Bayt Nuba became "Canada Park," established by the Canadian Jewish National Fund. The US JNF has tax-exempt status while it attacks the grassroots justice movement that children of exile like myself helped grow. Canada Park is one of many examples of Israeli greenwashing, where it claims be environmentalist in order to obscure the settler-colonial violence its military used to empty Palestinian land, planting foreign trees in the place of razed Palestinian homes.



Emile Habibi pointed to the absurdity of greenwashing in his 1974 novel "The Secret Life of Saeed: The Pessoptimist." The main character, a wise-fool, asked: "Was this why you demolished the Latrun villages, Imwas, Yalu, and Bait Nuba, and drove away their inhabitants, master?"

We carry immense pain, just like the other 300,000 refugees of 1967, the 1948 Nakba refugees, and that of the people of Silwan and Sheikh Jarrah fighting settler-colonial erasure today. Their resistance today speaks to our stubborn refusal to abandon our liberation struggle. I was raised to know and love this land as if I had lived in Yalu myself. We are four generations living in exile. We plan to return together. Our elders did everything they could to spare us from the pain of dispossession, and we must honor their sacrifice by ending the Nakba.
