A sanctuary in perilMatthew Hatcher - The Electronic Intifada - The East Jerusalem school – which is registered with both the Israeli and Palestinian ministries of education – serves to give blind girls an education, culminating in the tawjihi, the national exam that 12th grade students must pass under the Palestinian curriculum to graduate from secondary school. It also provides older women a chance to learn vocational skills such as stitching and loom weaving. Education is provided by qualified teachers and instructors and the school has braille textbooks for its students. Located less than a mile from the school in another part of the Shuafat neighborhood is the boarding house in which the students and Mansour live. The house is another key to the school’s ethos. There, students live, eat and play together, and learn to take care of the small garden on the property. [bz] 3/9/2018

Settlers and government officials seize land in Sheikh JarrahMa`an - Israeli armed forces entered the western part of Sheikh Jarrah Neighborhood in East Jerusalem, surrounded a piece of land and prevented access to it. Bulldozers began to raze the land and uproot several planted trees. The land belongs to a Palestinian resident Palestinian resident, Abed al-Razzaq al-Sheikh, and is located directly in front of his house. The operation, intended to extend the Israeli settler enclave in Sheikh Jarrah, was overseen by members of the Israeli Custodian of Absentees` Property. They claim the land on the basis that that Sheikh Jarrah was once the site of a 19th century Jewish community. However, Israeli law does not permit Palestinians who lost their land in 1948 to claim it back. Even for claiming a former Jewish property, Israeli law required a specific court order - which was not provided in this case. Thus, the action by the settlers and the "Custodian" is illegal even under the manifestly discriminatory Israeli law. [ak]28/8/2018
