It’s been a year since the eviction of two Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah. The eviction was carried out under laws that give Jewish refugees from 1948, or whomsoever appoints themselves to act in those refugees’ names, the right of return – even while Palestinians who gave up their refugee status and rebuilt their lives are made into refugees again.
In that year, something has happened. The demonstrations each Friday have grown. An Israeli peace movement has been born, or reborn.
This Friday stop telling yourself you really should be at Sheikh Jarrah. Get there.
