Eretz Yisrael Time

Ha’aretz is reporting that the courts have ordered Jewish families to vacate and seal the building they built in East Jerusalem. The area is specifically the Shiloach, Silwan, or what was originally King David’s City of Jerusalem.

While the anti-Semites and Leftists will immediately jump and say the settlers stole the land, the issue is not ownership, which is clearly in Jewish hands and the court agrees, but rather building without permits which is a different issue entirely.

But that is not the point of this post. The point of this post is actually the title of the Ha’aretz article: “Court orders settlers to evacuate East J'lem building”.

You see, as far as I recall, all of Jerusalem was annexed by the State of Israel.

In fact looking at the official map so conveniently supplied by the Jerusalem Municipality, it is very clear that Shiloach/Silvan/Ir David is quite clearly deeply within the borders of municipal Jerusalem.

Which raises the obvious question.

If Jews living in municipal Jerusalem are called Settlers by Ha’aretz, then I would have to assume that any Jews living anywhere in Jerusalem are called Settlers, whether that be in Shiloach, Gilo, Rechavia, French Hill, the Old City, (need I mention Maaleh Adumim and the Golan – also annexed) and so on.

Or could it be something more sinister?

Could radical Left-wing Ha’aretz be a racist paper, and consider it wrong for a Jew to move into what is currently a predominantly Arab neighborhood in the capital?

I would hope that isn’t the reason, but highly suspect that it is.
