The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Just two days ago, the police allowed hundreds of settlers and extreme right wing activists to enter Sheikh-Jarah freely, and demonstrate in support of expelling the Palestinians from the neighborhood. At the same time, Palestinian and Israeli activists who tried to demonstrate against the right wing march were pushed back violently and arrested. Today, the police prevented us once again from entering the neighborhood and demonstrating against the settlement there, claiming it was a `Jewish Neighborhood` (In fact, only 4 houses of the 28 are inhabited by Jewish settlers).
Where the police is nothing more than a flag carrier and a servant of the settlers, acts of non-violent civil disobedience are necessary to defend democracy and human rights
