I couldn’t help but think back to being here in Aberdeen in May 2021, while the Israeli state forcibly evicted Palestinian families from their homes in Sheik Jarrah.
In fact, the Palestinian families at the center of the legal dispute in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of east Jerusalem were NOT evicted. They faced the possibility of eviction which – till this very day – has not been carried out. In fact, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled on March 1st this year that the four Palestinian families in question will not be evicted until the Justice Ministry settles their ownership claims to the property – a process that reportedly may take years.
