Protesters rally in Jaffa against move to evict local Arab families

Marchers say Israel Lands Authority trying to create a Jewish Jaffa, compare evictions to events of 1948.

By Yigal Hai

Hundreds of Jaffa residents on Friday participated in a march to protest measures that the Israel Lands Authority and the Amidar housing company have taken in the past year to evict Arab families from Jaffa.

The Israel Lands Authority and Amidar claim the families invaded the properties and built on them illegally.

The march was organized by The Popular Committee to Defend the Land and the Right to Residency, which was established by the Arab residents of Jaffa several weeks ago.

According to the committee's leaders, the Authority and Amidar in the past year issued 500 eviction notices to Arab families from the Al Ajami and Givat Aliya neighborhoods, and some of the notices have evolved into eviction lawsuits.

The organizers of the march questioned why the Authority and Amidar have taken a sudden interest in the matter in the past year, when the families have been living in their homes for several decades. They say the families have held a status of protected tenants who pay rent.

The residents' representatives say the authority and Amidar are attempting to Judaize Jaffa while also making a profit from selling the properties, which are near the seafront, to an affluent Jewish population.

The protesters in the march shouted various slogans such as "Jews and Arabs against house demolitions" and "The transfer won't happen."

According to the "This is a tsunami of evictions and demolitions," said Al Ajami neighborhood chairman, Camel Agbaria. "The struggle for a roof over one's head should be the ultimate struggle. Instead of firing bullets, they fire dollar bills here."

March participants included Meretz MKs Yossi Beilin and Ran Cohen and Hadash MKs Dov Khenin and Hanna Swaid.

Throughoutt the past week, the Popular Committee handed out flyers to Jaffa residents, calling on them to join the protest. The flyer, entitled "The residents of Jaffa are at risk of being evicted and expelled again," presented a picture from 1948 of an Arab family reluctantly leaving its Jaffa home along side a picture from 2005 of a tractor demolishing the home of an Arab family in Jaffa.

"500 families are at risk of being expelled," the flyer read. "Thousands of people remain with no roofs over their heads for the benefit of the wealthy and rich entrepreneurs."

The Housing Authority and Amidar reject the accusations. A statement issued by the Housing Authority said, "The documents in question are warning letters issued by the Amidar company, which manages the Authorities properties and deals with invaders." Only several dozens of letters have been issued."

"If anyone has any complaints, they are welcome to visit the Amidar offices and prove they have a legal claim to the property," the statement read. "The claims that this is a transfer are demagoguery. No person will be evicted without a court order."

According to the head of the Amidar directorate, Doron Cohen, Amidar rejects "with scorn the demagogic attempt by the 'Popular Committee' to use the events of the War of Independence to protect those who break the law. Amidar works to protect the State's property rights regardless of the tenants' character, religion or nationality."

    Israel doesn't have a death penalty, the one and only time it was used it was for Adolf Eichmann. America's death penalty isn't a national policy. Each state has it's own standards. Personally, I feel that if the crime merits death, replace it by a life terms, without parole or pardon. Lifelong imprisonment is worse than death.

    You must include the Jews that were evicted from Hebron by the Arab 1929 & 1936 riots, which killed many, raped the women and caused the survivors to flee. Same holds true for the Jews in Jerusalem when the Jordan legion took control in 1948. Many of the Arabs in Jaffa don't hold title to the homes, they've been squatting there all these years. Let's not forget Tel Hai, a Jewish farming community, land purchased from Arab owners, attacked by Arabs, forcing survivors to flee. No similarty to South Africa, natives lived in their own communities and didn't go around blowing themselves up in the midst of innocent standersby.

    #92 Maureen Ann - Here's what an AUSSIE
    • * BEN JABO
    • 29.04.07
    • 17:35

    a contemporary AUSSIE MUSLIM HOLY MAN SAID. If you're citing the "Talmud", be specific, it contains a lot and I really don't think you're an expert or have the slightest knowledge of it's contents....Muslim leader blames women for sex attacks Richard Kerbaj October 26, 2006 THE nation's most senior Muslim cleric has blamed immodestly dressed women who don't wear Islamic headdress for being preyed on by men and likened them to abandoned "meat" that attracts voracious animals. In a Ramadan sermon that has outraged Muslim women leaders, Sydney-based Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali also alluded to the infamous Sydney gang rapes, suggesting the attackers were not entirely to blame. While not specifically referring to the rapes, brutal attacks on four women for which a group of young Lebanese men received long jail sentences, Sheik Hilali said there were women who "sway suggestively" and wore make-up and immodest dress ... "and then you get a judge without mercy (rahma) and gives you 65 years". "But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he asked. The leader of the 2000 rapes in Sydney's southwest, Bilal Skaf, a Muslim, was initially sentenced to 55 years' jail, but later had the sentence reduced on appeal. In the religious address on adultery to about 500 worshippers in Sydney last month, Sheik Hilali said: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat? "The uncovered meat is the problem." The sheik then said: "If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred." He said women were "weapons" used by "Satan" to control men. "It is said in the state of zina (adultery), the responsibility falls 90 per cent of the time on the woman. Why? Because she possesses the weapon of enticement (igraa)." Muslim community leaders were yesterday outraged and offended by Sheik Hilali's remarks, insisting the cleric was no longer worthy of his title as Australia's mufti. Young Muslim adviser Iktimal Hage-Ali - who does not wear a hijab - said the Islamic headdress was not a "tool" worn to prevent rape and sexual harassment. "It's a symbol that readily identifies you as being Muslim, but just because you don't wear the headscarf doesn't mean that you're considered fresh meat for sale," the former member of John Howard's Muslim advisory board told The Australian. "The onus should not be on the female to not attract attention, it should be on males to learn how to control themselves."

    Firstly, Nannette Hebron and all other land in Judea and Samaria are part of Eretz Israel. Legally onlyAa clean Deed of Title insures ownership of land and that the sale was executed between a willing Buyer and Seller. Receipts to the J.N.F for a purchase of Hebron? I don't know what that means. Please excuse my lack of knowledge about that part of history. Your beef sounds like the J.N.F did not fulfill their obligation to your family. If there was an implied contract that was not executed and you family was not inbreach, than you have a case. In regards to the J.N.F reclaiming Hebron, I would leave that to G.-.D, the I.D.F.and the Jewish people.

Why do we have an interest in the state of your affairs over there? Because the criminal warlords that run the show over there are becoming so dangerous that they may indeed be the cause of world war 3. Now you see, thats making it our problem too.

Jewish criminals that you read about from time to time, don't rove in gangs looking for women to assault. If you'll check Muslim rape gangs in EUROPE, it seems to be the in thing for your Muslim males to seek out helpless women. As a matter of fact (I'll furnish the link if you wish) one of your Holy men (religious leader) in Australia said that women that didn't wear the Hijab were fair game.

    Israel proper is 78% of the land under dispute. Genug is genug. Gaza is one of the most crowded places on earth, they need every square inch of it. The settlers went back home, like they needed to. Gaza was an even more obvious case of Israeli overreaching than West Bank settlement is. The settlements are the leading obstacle on the Israeli side to peace.

    I am not condoning or defending rapists no matter what their religion! Ben Jabo delights in painting a grim picture of all Australian (world) Muslims! You are correct, the rapists in question are in prison. Media reports state, one of the culprits was given a 55 year sentence which was reduced to 31 years on appeal. The Daily Telegraph reported one of the victims, was herself a young Muslim lady. The point I wish to make is that the criminals in this instance were dissociated from their Muslim religion. I am sure you will agree that the Jewish criminals we read about, from time to time, are also not living according to their religious instruction.

    • Abe
    • 28.04.07
    • 22:46

    This is the final sweep to rid Jaffa of its Arab and Mizrahi population. Arab residents of 'mixed' citieslike Ramle and Acre are simply not allowed or given permission to extend or improve their properties. The intention is to make their living conditions so impossible that they will leave. These people are bona fide residents and must be left alone to live their lives in peace, together with their Jewish neighbours. This move by Amodar and the State government must be resisted - or else the original intention of the Zionist enterprise of total transfer of the Arab population will succeed, confirming Israel as a racist apartheid state. Is that what Israelis want? This hounding of Arab residents of Jaffa and other cities, and of course in the Negev and Galil must stop. If Israel wishes to be considered a democracy, it must give equal rights to all its inhabitants, and stop acting as greedy estate agents.

So many more were killed that way, makes it much more interesting. Your movie takes a poor second in box office demand. After all, many movies have already been made about Arabs hi-jacking planes, Munich Olympic Massacre, Twin Towers-Pentagon, etc.

My question to Ben was precisely about all of the above and since Clint E.had made a film about one episode,why did he not make another one showing the terror exercised by Israel ?Should be very interesting.

    Sun Herald also reported on the defense of a few of the rapists. It seems they plead "not guilty" because as Muslims they didn't know any better since Muslims have the "right" to humiliate and rape non-Muslim women and girls. They used the Koran as evidence. BTW, the judge thought very little of that defense and gave them 7 to 20 years in prison.

We don't need more homeless, the refugees need homes and a homeland and the settlers need to go back home to Israel. When peace and mutual respect are established between Israel and Palestine, Jews who don't adore Baruch Goldstein will probably be welcome in Hebron. Wonder what Father Abraham (not that I'm religious) would say about the Jewish thugs currently lording it over Hebron?

    Firstly that post was NOT from Tosefta.Secondly let us be honest, I can, can you? The facts are the facts.The way the govt of israel treats its citzens Jewish and Arab is revolting.I know first hand how they work.They have been trying to get the Arabs out of Jaffa for decades and generally interfere with legitimate public policy concerns of the israeli arabs. Israel must for its own good purge itself of the Soviet style mentality that runs the civil service and end the abuse of its citizens by the state.It is because I am a Zionist and a democrat that I feel it is vital for Israel to clean up its often messy and smelly domestic act.Sorry if you dont like that,but I care enough about the REAL issues facing Israel to be honest for its own good.Thank you for your previous support anyway.Regards

    Dude. your sequence of events and analysis of what happened in 2002 is seriously flawed 1- They did not FORCE there way into the church but went there for refuge. The priests and nuns willingly gave them protection, shared food and water. That is because all palestinians are suffering from a brutal israeli oppression- christian and muslim alike 2- The majority of the people in the church were civilians, but the IDF still maintained a seige- no water food. They even shot at people who went out to collect grass cause of the hunger and killed a monk who went to ring the bell(not knowing what was happening because he was deaf) 3- Lets be realistic the IDF did not respect the place, they played deafening heavy metal music day and night focusing on sleep deprivation. It was only cause most of the money that keeps your state afloat comes from a christian country that you didnt bomb the place up. U even demolished part of the wall

    I find it appalling that the exiled are becoming the exilers. We were a people exiled for our own beliefs, cultures and identity, and yet now similar actions are being inflicted by us! This is indeed an attrocity. The State of Israel can remain a Jewish nation yet still welcome and provide home to Non-Jewish persons. It is only by these actions that it will be turned as an undesirable location for Ailyah. As for violence perpetrated by Arabs, it is usually as a result of lack of education (as with any form of violence) Education is the key to solution. If not education then deterrence, jail and prosecute and make examples! But exiling an entire race for the actions of a few is disgusting. There are bad Jews, but are we all bad, there ar ebad Christians but are they all bad? Don't let the actions of the minority affect the vast majority. Long live the State of Israel.

The Arabs rioted as they usually do because they wanted to build another story on top of their houses. The permit was not given because it was totally unsafe to do so in the very old and crumbling Arab houses they live in, it was a risk to their life to do so. However the Arab propaganda machine claimed exactly what you say and you picked it up from there without trying to get to the truth.

    But Absolute Sweden's misleading claims are nothing new - for years there has been a shameful campaign by the likes of Itamar ben Zvi to portray coexistence in Jaffa in this dark light. Just I can tell yo from direct experience and facts on the grounds that this is definitely NOT TRUE and no Arab or Jew in Jaffa take it seriously. And in case you consider that I must be some deluded leftist, there is at least one former Tzahal spokesman living in Jaffa who would tell you exactly the same. As would all of my Jewish friends in Jaffa, that I meet every day in Arab coffee shops. As for the 'Ajami case, most commenters have no clue about Israeli and international laws on housing and property issues - still they go on commenting. The case will go through the courts, and I'm pretty confident that the Arab families will eventually win (they have a pretty strong case). But the whole balagan is not surprising, since HUGE economic interests are engaged, and housing issue all over Tel Aviv is hot.

But this time comment #1 compells me to respond, as I feel somewhat personally insulted by Absolute Sweden's ludicrous assertion that "Jews are being attacked in Jaffa by arab gangs trying to make it Judenrein". I take it personally, because for one year this very part of Jaffa has been my beloved neighborhood, I have lived there happily betweens Arabs and Jews, Russians and mizrahims, etc. And now this guy from far away comes with pure defamation about the neighborhood. Oh and I've been crossing Jaffa late at night at least 200 times on my way back home, I live betwenn two synagogues and a mosque, but Abolute Sweden knows better. Granted, as in any poor neighborhood, there is slightly more crime in 'Ajami than in Ramat Aviv (but no more than in Shkhunat haTikvah or Takhanah Merkazit!). But this is not hate crime.

    Aelony - Church of Nativity - Bethlehem
    • * BEN JABO
    • 28.04.07
    • 05:51

    More reasons why Christians fled Bethlehem.On April 2, 2002 armed Palestinian Arab terrorists forced their way into the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, one of Christianity's most sacred sites, the birthplace of Christ. In the midst of over 200 nuns and priests, they sought refuge from Operation Defensive Shield, the Israel Defense Forces action against suicide bombing activity originating from West Bank locations. For 38 days, until May 10, 2002, the world watched as the gunmen refused to surrender their positions inside the Church. Only Israeli restraint and respect for the Christian shrine prevented the Palestinian desecration from turning into its destruction. Why was the IDF in Bethlehem at the time? In December, 1995, Israel had turned over control of Bethlehem to the Palestinian Authority, but the PA failed to quell terrorist activities. Quite the contrary; terrorism never stopped and after September 2000, increased dramatically with the al-Aqsa Intifada. In February and March, 2002, more than two dozen Israelis had died in five separate incidents of murder, bombings and gunfire within Israel and the territories, with over six dozen injured. In each case, the Fatah in Bethlehem claimed responsibility for the deaths. In the first days of April 2002, an IDF Paratroop Brigade moved into the area to seek out and destroy explosives, arms factories and related terrorist infrastructure. A heavily armed band of terrorist gunmen, trying to evade the IDF, moved into Manger Square but found IDF troops and tanks ready for them. That triggered a planned and premediated Palestinian Arab operation to take over the Church of the Nativity. IDF forces began negotiations to end the takeover. The Palestinian Arabs inside the church included many who were known terrorists and Israel demanded that they surrender. They were members of Palestinian groups on the U.S. Department of State Foreign Terrorist Organizations list, including several Hamas operatives who had killed innocent civilians. Also taking cover in the Church were Tanzim militia leaders from Yasir Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) who were involved in recent suicide bombings, plus members of the Al Aqsa Brigade. Israel identified the terrorist individuals by name and sought to take them into custody; the Palestinian Authority refused to transfer them into Israeli hands. Nor were representatives of other governments helpful in concluding the matter. An early agreement to end the standoff failed when Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi declined to accept the gunmen, saying that no one nation could be asked to take that responsibility, and the European Union needed to find an EU solution.

    Guess what I just Googled up. Yup, it's about Aussie Muslim Rape, doesn't seem to include those that were already put away...Enjoy....Australia The Australian Sun-Herald reports that police data show that some 70 racially motivated rapes of young white girls, one as young as 13, by Middle Eastern immigrants have taken place in the last two years. ?Fifteen youths and men have so far been charged with more than 300 offenses relating to matters since mid-2000 alone. They are all of Middle Eastern extraction. None of those involved is presently before the courts....those in Australia don?t seem to be part of a gang initiation, but they are nonetheless clearly racially driven. ?Before being brutalized,? the Australian paper reports, ?other victims have reportedly been questioned about their Australian heritage or forced to endure taunts about their attackers? prowess.? But, like the rapes in France, those in Australia follow a similar pattern in which one non-white male becomes intimate with a white girl, whom he then delivers to his friends for sexual violation, beating and humiliation.

Arafat was directly possible for inflicint poverty on his own people. Fatah demanded bribes from the merchants, forcing the Christian merchants to flee. Just a few years ago, Fatah took over a church and used it for a military firing point and terrorist refuge. Why don't you google, "Christian's in Bethlehem" and find out what it's all about. Hebron isn't obscure to the current issue, it's quite relevant. Arabs still have the strong desire to make Israel become another Arab Palestine, driving the Jews out as it did in Hebron.. It's well documented. If you wish, I'll send you the links, just ask. Just one question, have you ever been there or done that, other than as a tourist.

In the case of Bethlehem, Christian Palestinians largely had places to go during a period of enforced poverty and oppression; their Moslem neighbors largely lacked that opportunity and are trapped there.

    On Independence Day families of Jews from the Haifa area went to the Megiddo Forest to observe the Day. They were met with 6,000 Arabs waving PLO flags and making menacing threats to the Jews. These Jews had unknowingly chosen to hold their Independence Day picnic near the site of the central event held by Israeli Arabs to mark 'Nakba Day' - 'the day of the catastrophe' - as they call Israel's independence. Several thousand Arabs had come to attend the event, and heard speeches from several Arab Knesset Members, bemoaning Israel's 1948 War of Independence. Interestingly, the Arab leadership appears to be marking its 'alternative' day based on the Jewish calendar. Does that make any impression on you? Are you able to understand the significance? The hate that wants Israel to be no more exists in Israel. The dream of Jews and Arabs living in peace is a failed experiment. Arabs have dashed it everywhere and everyplace they can.

    Sweden. I have read a number of your posts over the last year or so. I cringe at the responses you get. Trying to argue and claim you're just some moronic bigot. I have held back from attacking you and still wish to. However, I challenge you to stop with your b*llsh*t Diaspora Jewish views and ghetto mentality and come be an actual Zionist. Living and breathing as a Jew in the Jewish homeland. Truly understand what the founders of modern Zionism where trying to achieve. Then I believe you will have less arguments against you and will understand what great responsibility we as Jews have in our state. We exist to create a better world, not destroy the world of others around us. People often scorn you for being so 'Jew-centric' and only looking out for the Jews from their own perspective. They're wrong.You are the self-hater. I challenge you to actually care about the Jews and help to create a peace where we can be safe (and just by coincidence so will our Arab neighbours!

    If they don't have proper papers they don't belong there. Squatting the way you are doing doesn't make it legal. Jews have LEGAL documention for their homes, even then, Hebron Arabs stole homes & possessions, killed many of the Jewish residents & raped the women.. Keep Hebron in mind, great example of infamous theft during the 1929 & 1936 Arab pogroms. Jordan Legion when they took Jerusalem, violated the cemeteries, stole the tombstones for latrine paving blocks, demolished the Yeshivoth, destroyed the Holy Books & relics, turned the Western Wall into a vast garbage dump. East Jerusalem was a vast Arab garbage dump until Israel took control again in 1967.

    by Israeli authorities? Why is it that all media reports are of the demolition and eviction of Arab families from their homes? "... 500 eviction notices to Arab families from Al Ajami and Givat Aliya." It must be so difficult for Israel - I mean, you just can't have Arab families living near the seaside can you Israel!

    make it "Judenrein". No Leftie has ever protested it,preferring to concentrate on imaginary "settlers harassing shepherds".Police was also numb on this as far as I know. Arabs won't to make Jaffa another Betlehem,almost devoid now of Christians,a purely Moslem town.
