Jewish settlers, backed by Israeli police and accompanied by member of the Knesset Bezalel Smotrich (Religious Zionism) stormed the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah and threatened three Palestinian families that they will be forcibly expelled from their homes within one month.
Director of Nahalat Shimon, the US-registered settler organization working to ethnically cleanse us, just invaded my home in Sheikh Jarrah, with the fascist genocidal member of “Knesset” Smotrich. Tell me again how this is a “real estate dispute” & not systemic colonization.
