|Demolition East Jerusalem|
Israeli leaders adopted two basic principles in their rule of East Jerusalem. The first was and is to rapidly increase the Jewish population in East Jerusalem. The second was to hinder growth of the Arab population and force the Arab residents to make their homes elsewhere. The Israeli state is rapidly achieving its goal.
This is the position now as we have seen it today, a position shared by the Coalition for Civil Rights in Jerusalem whom we met with. The factual information they supplied leaves no doubt that this is the Israeli objective.
This is only a brief outline of this case and only one of the many examples we were given by families of the displaced. The civil rights group continues to support families who are displaced but with no assistance from government departments and frustrated by corrupt officials employed by the Israeli state, it's a very difficult task.
Their work with the newly employed and those seeking employment or refused benefits is excellent. The delegation were very impressed with their work.
