  What is left of Holy Jerusalem?
Nablus, Rana Khmoos, - 2009-03-10

New chapters of Israeli aggression against the holy city of Jerusalem are unfolding, but recently, these chapters have been escalating and taking new forms of home demolishing, expulsion, disposition, and tighter control. Meanwhile, Arab Jerusalemites are facing this onslaught with their bodies.

Lately, news of Israeli plans to demolish 88 homes in Silwan suburb, south of Al Aqsa Mosque, to make room for a new park Israel intends to build. The plan would render 1,500 Palestinians homeless and deprive them of living in their ancestorsí land.

Meanwhile, Israel announced the decision to demolish 55 more apartments at Ras Khamis in Jerusalem in a further step to Juaize the holy city and expel its native residents.

Palestinians call Israelís action a campaign of ethnic cleansing and mass expulsion in order to Israelization of the holy city, while the Jerusalem Municipality, supported by the Israeli Government, continue a campaign of destruction of Muslim and Christian character of the city. In a latest step to reach and control Al Aqsa Mosque, in this campaign was a plan to connect two tunnels to AlBuraq Wall (Wailing Wall)

Israel then will not rest until the total political, religious, and demographic domination of Jerusalem and the expulsion of its residents. 420,000 Palestinians in the Jerusalem district are not only separated from Jerusalem, but from each other, isolated in small, broken-up communities separated from the West Bank as well.

To date, Israel built 12 Kilometers of a 44 Kilometer wall that will result in the confiscation of 58,000 square Kilometers from the Palestinian lands to consolidate control of Jerusalem and to build 73,000 housing units for the settlers in Jerusalem and its suburbs. The result of all of this is an increase of the Jewish settlers to 600,000 and will reduce the Palestinian percentage to less than 20% of the total population of Jerusalem.

Things did not stop their. In another step to change the character of the old city, Israel had set aside a $125 million USD budget for new construction that includes Jerusalemís old walls, gates, even new lights are included in the plan. This is sure to decimate the old character of Jerusalem once and for all.

At the time when Arab and Islamic money does not seem to find its way to Jerusalem, not even as grants to the beloved city, the bereaved Jerusalemites cannot help but pitch tents on rubble of their homes waiting to taste the slow death that is sure coming their way, asking Arab and Islamic conscious, ďWhat have you done to beloved Jerusalem?Ē
