Jerusalem electricity company crippled by Israel, Palestinian Authority Daoud Kuttab - Al-Monitor - Ever since the occupation and the Israeli unilateral annexation, JDECO has been seen as an important Palestinian institution. But in recent years, it has been hobbled by debt and its effectiveness has been greatly reduced. JDECO is one of the biggest employers in Jerusalem, with more than 1,000 Palestinians working for the company, according to Omari. As the struggle for Jerusalem and its identity intensifies, the role of a company this large becomes crucial in defending Palestinian national identity and the rights of Palestinians in and around Jerusalem.-rh 21/3/2018

In one Palestinian village, the whole story of the occupationJoshua Leifer - =972 - "Without a work permit or a blue ID card, Marwan says he crosses illegally through a part of the separation wall that remains unfinished, to work in Aminadav, the moshav built on old Walajeh’s ruins. “Just this fence,” he says, “is like a knife in the heart.” Marwan’s family has land on the other side of the wall." - id21/3/2018

Palestinian assailant shot dead after stabbing and killing Israeli settler in Old CityMa`an - During the attack, 28-year-old Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, from the northern occupied West Bank village of Aqraba was shot by an Israeli police officer, with witnesses telling Ma’an that he was shot more than 10 times. The Israeli narrative of “lone wolf” Palestinian assailants under the influence of incitement, which has been perpetuated by the current right-wing Israeli government, has been dismissed by analysts as overly simplistic. Palestinians have instead pointed chiefly to the frustration and despair brought on by Israel`s 50-year military occupation of the Palestinian territory and the absence of a political horizon.

Our Jerusalem — A Reality CheckMenachem Klein - Palestine-Israel Journal - The concept of “Our Jerusalem” underwent a revolutionary change at the end of the 19th century. Until then, conquerors came from outside, one after another, fought over the right to control the city and struggled to determine that it belonged to them. New historical research shows that at the end of the 19th century, it was to the residents of the city and their children, who identified themselves as locals, that the city belonged. The rise of a local patriotic nationalism with Jerusalem at its center occurred before the arrival of Zionism and is connected to the modernization that affected the country. Contrary to the Zionist claim that the Zionist immigrants, together with the British, brought modernization to Jerusalem, the research shows that it was an organic local development which preceded them. The residents of Jerusalem, from all religions, had a place in this new identity.-rh14/3/2018

Israeli forces raid East Jerusalem cemetery, destroy tombstones of slain PalestiniansMaan - At 3 a.m. Husni al-Kilani, supervisor of the al-Mujahideen cemetery in East Jerusalem, was woken up by an urgent call: in an unprecedented move Israeli forces were raiding the cemetery and smashing tombstones. The seven destroyed tombstones were of the Palestinians killed by same Israeli forces during a wave of violence across East Jerusalem and the West Bank that erupted in October 2015. The tombstones were engraved about a year-and-a-half ago with a verse from the Quran and the sentence "graves of martyrs of the Intifada of Jerusalem”. Al-Kilani recounted that Israeli forces had previously demanded that he remove the words "heroic martyr" that were engraved before the name of each of the deceased Palestinians, and threatened to destroy all the tombstones if he did not. Now, evidently, the threat was carried out. [ak] 13/3/2018
