Israel: How the Arabs who replaced Jews in 1948 became "poor" Arabs of Sheikh Jarrah in 2021
#1
The following webpage refers to: “Eight Palestinian refugee families residing in Sheikh Jarrah [who] are facing forced eviction”:
https://news.un.org/en/story/2021/05/1091492
 
When the United Nations or the International Media refer to this issue, they will not mention that in 1948 the Jordanians illegally-occupied East Jerusalem and the “West Bank”. The Jordanians then expelled the Jews from East Jerusalem and then the U.N. / Jordanians settled Arabs (now known as “Palestinian Arabs” / “Palestinians”) on that land. Some Jewish landowners have since gone to court to apply to retrieve their land.
 
Consider: Is this issue about the Jews expelling poor Arabs, or is it in reality about Jews trying to retrieve their land after having been expelled from it by the Arabs! The Jews expelled from East Jerusalem (the “Old City”) by the Jordanians in 1948:

The Sheikh Jarrah issue:
 
In 2010 the Israeli Supreme Court reached a decision on a claim made by Jewish land owners. In Sheikh Jarrah, Jewish landowners owned the Freehold (Freehold = “permanent and absolute tenure of land or property with freedom to dispose of it at will”). The Jordanian authorities had granted leases (Lease = “a contract by which one party conveys land, property, services, etc. to another for a specified time”) to Arabs on that land. The time of those leases having expired, the Jewish landowners applied for the return of their property. The court found in the applicants favor.
 
The legal case has been to decide if the previous judgment should be enforced.
 
Clearly there would be no perceived issues, had the landowners been Arab rather than Jewish. The false-accusations of Jews trying to “expel poor Arabs so “settlers” can move in”, is wrong. Since the Arabs arrived in the land of Israel well after the Jews, and expelled the Jews from East Jerusalem, consider who really should be called “settlers”.

Quote:“The four Sheikh Jarrah homes under discussion were built on land owned by Jews before the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, when they were seized by Jordan and leased to Palestinian families. After Israel captured the area in the 1967 Six Day War, a 1970 Israeli law transferred all abandoned properties still held by the Jordanian government, including the Sheikh Jarrah homes, to the custody of the Israeli government.
 
The law further obligated the release of properties to the original owners when possible. The Jewish trusts that owned the site appealed for its return to their hands, sparking decades of legal battles with Palestinian residents who vowed to stay put. [...]
 
In early October [2021], the Supreme Court published a compromise proposal: The Palestinians would be allowed to remain as protected tenants and Nahalat Shimon would be provisionally recognized as the owner of the land on which the homes were built. [...]
 
The Palestinians, who see the homes as rightfully theirs, have refused to recognize Nahalat Shimon’s ownership of the homes. [...]
 
Palestinians in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah on Tuesday rejected a compromise proposed by Israel’s Supreme Court that could have seen them stave off the threat of eviction for over a decade.
 
[...] around 200 [“Palestinian” Arab] families in East Jerusalem [... have] cases slowly moving through administrative bodies and Israeli courts [...]”

Note on unfortunate general-appeasement of “Palestinian” Arab propaganda-terms:
 
The Jewish housing organization “Nahalat Shimon” is described by the pro-Arab United Nations and by the international media, as a: “settler” organization.
However, as can be clearly understood from the circumstances, it was Jewish-owned land that was seized by Jordan in the 1948 war, and it was Arabs (now referred to as “Palestinian Arabs” aka “Palestinians”) who were settled on that land by the U.N. / Jordan. Thus it is the Sheikh Jarrah “Palestinian” Arabs who are the settlers; not the Jewish owners of the land in question, nor “Nahalat Shimon” - the Jewish housing organization.
 
Regarding the recent compromise proposal by the Israeli Supreme Court. The Jurists who sit on that esteemed court may be assumed to be fearless-lawyers who decide according to law (legislation, legal precedent, legal documentation, etc). However, would it really be legally-appropriate / conscionable, when making their legal decision / proposing compromises, for them to take into account the threat of another 4,000 or more “Palestinian” Arab rockets, such as those fired at Israel allegedly in support of the Sheikh Jarrah “Palestinian” Arabs in May 2021?:
