Protest in front of Jewish National Fund

Following the 11th demolition of the Bedouin village of Al Arakib yesterday (January 31), a protest was held outside the Jewish National Fund building in Jerusalem today. A group of upwards of 100 people gathered in the cold and rain at 2pm today with the message, in Hebrew, Arabic and English: “There is no such thing as an unrecognized village, there are only government lies.” Here are some photos I shot:

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

      That “indignant onlooker” wasn’t some random passerby. It was Yonatan Yosef, grandson of Ovadiah Yosef, and speaker of the settlement in Sheikh Jarrah, though he doesn’t live in the neighborhood. He’s an extreme right-wing fundamentalist activist, and he comes to many leftist demonstrations to counter demonstrate and make a fool out of himself.

    2. The sad part is that these slogans “uprooting people, planting trees” express the core of the JNF’s doctrine since it was estblished.
      This is simply one of the most ridiculous examples for it…
