Jerusalem’s Israeli municipality demolishes Palestinian house in the occupied cityWAFA - The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished today a Palestinian-owned house in al-Tur neighborhood of the occupied city under the pretext it was built without a permit, according to the house owner Mohammad Abu al-Hawa. He told WAFA that Israeli municipality demolished his 90 square meter, one story house under the pretext he did not have a building permit. He said that the Israeli authorities handed him a demolition order 15 days ago, noting that the house is close to the main street in the neighborhood. Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem say they are forced to build without permit because the Israeli municipality rarely issues permits to the city’s original Palestinian citizens as a way to reduce their number by forcing them to leave it and find accommodation and work elsewhere.

A win-win solution on the Temple Mount Yossi Beilin - Al-Monitor - Israel conceding sovereignty over the Temple Mount would essentially be a concession of something that Israel doesn`t actually possess and that it doesn`t need to possess. In the framework of a future peace accord between Israel and a Palestinian state, it would be possible to decide that sovereignty be transferred to a Palestinian or Muslim body and that the status quo that Israel unilaterally imposed after the occupation of East Jerusalem be annulled. The alternative must entail that anyone who wishes to enter the Temple Mount after it`s determined that he poses no security risk is allowed entry and anyone who wishes to pray at the site be allowed to do so, even if it means erecting another building for worship. Prayer could be limited to certain hours or days. Thus, for instance, if a Muslim holiday clashes with a Jewish holiday, several hours of entry and prayer could be allowed for Jews and several others for Muslims without hurting anyone`s feelings and avoiding heightened tensions before each holiday for fear that the unnecessary hatred erupts again. -rh 20/8/2019

Birthright does not apply to Palestinians in JerusalemDaoud Kuttab - Arab Media Internet Network - Life has been difficult as a stateless person in Jerusalem for Mustafa Kharouf. He had the unfortunate case of being born to Jerusalem parents while they were in Algiers. His parents brought him back to Jerusalem but the Israelis for obvious racist reasons have refused to grant him residency in the only city he has lived in all his life. Ironically Jews around the world have a legal right not only to residency but also to citizenship in Israel simply because of what the government considers is their birthright because they belong to the Jewish faith.-rh20/8/2019

Police confronted with unbearable quiet - an eyewitness report from doomsday in IssawiyaAviv Tatarsky - Don`t Say We Didn`t Know - So after half an hour, the special police forces turn to a group of adolescents sitting next to one of the houses and roughly order them to get out of the street. During the ensuing argument a stone is thrown from some direction. The police have no idea from where. So they break into the nearest home. They demand without search warrant to climb up to the roof. One of the family members tells the police they can do so but he wants to accompany them. The police do not agree. He repeats his words. One of the policemen leaps at him and chokes him. Others join in and beat him up. (...) The fellow is taken out into the street, shackled and badly bruised. The inhabitants yell at the police. The policemen are stressed and want to throw a stun grenade but end up blowing it up on the guy`s back. He collapses, screaming. (...) The police hurl stun and teargas grenades in all directions. All hell breaks loose. [bz]6/8/2019
