Decisive session at Jerusalem District Court - don`t expel the Sumarin Family from their home
A nearly 30-year battle comes to a significant turning point today, Tuesday,
in a Jerusalem District Court hearing regarding the Jewish National Find
(JNF-KKL) demand to evict the Sumarin Family from their home in Silwan, East

At 8.30 am we will come to stand outside the District Court on Salah A Din
St., East Jerusalem,

The demand for eviction of the Sumarin family is based on a discriminatory
interpretation of the Absentee Property Law, which states that those who
resided in what is legally defined as an enemy coultry stand to lose their
property. This is despite the fact that the family has lived continuously in
the house since it was built, by the family, in the 1950s.

We are coming to support the family and demand a fair decision! We will meet
at 8:30 outside the District Court on Salah Din Street, Jerusalem - to show
the family, judges, the public and the JNF that this injustice is totally
unacceptable. To make it clear that the court can - and should - put an end
to it.
The power to change the fate of the Somarin family is in the hands of the
court - but also in the hands of the JNF. For more Information, and to join
us in writing a letter to the JNF- KKL
