It turns out that the original eviction order came down in 1999 when it was ruled that the land belonged the Committee of the Sephardic Community of Jerusalem. The title has since been transferred to a Jewish realty company. But the family didn't leave and was forcibly evicted in 2002. They subsequently returned, claiming the land didn't belong to the SCJ.
So, the sons go to the Court of the Jerusalem Magistrate claiming that they received no notice about the eviction. Their lawyer presented the eviction order which only had the names of the fathers of the two families that were living there. The land owner's lawyer asked to see the sons' identity cards. It turns out that at least two of the sons had addresses listed in the towns of Shuafat and Isawiya where they had been living since the original eviction...in 2002.
One of the sons, Salim Hanoun, told a heart wrenching story about how they had been put out on the street with nowhere to go. When he was asked to show his identity card he too had a Shuafat address. Imagine that.
So while CNN is whining about these poor homeless Arab squatters, and world leaders are bitching about Israel attempting to alter "facts on the ground" by evicting Arabs before Marackiyahoo Ha Rosh Karuv (the cabbage head) bestows his all powerful, stupefying plan for Israeli suicide, it turns out that they certainly do have homes, and they had all been evicted years ago, but moved back against the original court order.
Facts on the ground? Lies on the ground, you mean. So...ya think Isha Sesay is gonna report this on CNN?
Are there monkeys flying out of your butt yet?
