Israeli Settlers Walk Into A Palestinian House...

This footage, filmed and published in 2009, gives you an intimate yet disturbing close-up of colonial expansion and occupation. Watch as over a dozen Jewish settlers make their way into a Palestinian home in Jerusalems Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and lay claim to a section of the property. The home belonged to the Al-Kurd family. Rifqa Al-Kurd, 90, attempted to keep the settlers from entering the home but the settlers quickly moved around her, bringing their own belongings into the house and removing the familys belongings from the premises. According to the videos description, a previous court order administered by an Israeli judge transferred ownership rights over part of the house to a family of Jewish settlers. It is unclear if any appeals were made on behalf of the Al-Kurd family, but considering Israels longstanding history of ignoring land ownership deeds held by Palestinians, it is unlikely that the situation would have changed.

Decide it`s theirs. But hey, why not?

This house was "given" to the Palestinian refugees, by the Jordanian government, after Jordan illegally occupied Jerusalem in 1948. The fact was, that the house and land were legally owned by Jewish owners. Because of this, Jordan was never able to give title to the land. In fact, the Palestinians living there did not have any title. The previous owners took them to court, and legally evicted the Palestinian squatters.

These settlements aren't just random uninhabited land, they`re the water-rich, prime real-estate. This also creates a problem of Palestinian people trying to go from village A to B, but running into Israeli military, who periodically kill civilians (usually males, ranging from teenagers to young adults)
