‘If I Don’t Steal [Your Home] Someone Else Will’ Israeli Settler Justifies Forcible Takeover

When the woman protested against his actions, saying that he is trying to “steal her house,” the man said: “If I don’t steal your house, someone else will steal it.”

“If I don’t steal your home, someone else will steal it,” was the answer given by an Israeli settler to Mona al-Kurd, a young Palestinian woman who accused him of stealing her home in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in the occupied East Jerusalem

“Yes, but if I go, you don’t go back.
So what’s the problem?
Why are you yelling at me?”
I didn’t do this,” says the man, in a thick US accent

Visibly angered by the man’s audacity, al-Kurd yelled at him, saying: “No one is allowed to steal it.”

The man then says in Hebrew: “This is not mine in order to return it.”

According to Al-Jazeera, some 3,000 Palestinians live in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood. Many of them are descendants of people who were forced out during the ethnic cleansing of 1948.

Isreal has ordered Palestinian families, who have been living in Sheikh Jarrah for many generations, to evacuate their houses. A total of 58 Palestinians, 17 of whom are minors, are under threat of displacement so that the state could make way for Jewish settlements

According to the Jerusalem Post, the homes are situated within a complex known as the “Tomb of Simeon the Just” where a high priest is buried. The court states that the current residents (Palestinians) have failed to pay the required rent for several years and have not disproved “the claims of the Jewish Israelis to the property”.

The Israeli court gave the families an extra two days to reach an agreement, giving them until March 4, but that proved impossible. Israeli forces last night raided homes in Sheikh Jarrah, tear-gassed residents, including the elderly, inside their homes. Meanwhile, Israeli settlers attacked residents who were demonstrating against the forced evictions. Ten Palestinians were injured and three were hospitalized.
