JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Sunday court ruling has opened the door for further evictions of Palestinian families in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, settlers told the Israeli press Monday.

Jerusalem settler leader Aryeh King told the Israeli daily Haaretz that before the weekend, three Palestinian families would be evicted from their homes and replaced with Jewish settlers.

The announcement follows the Israeli High Court's rejection of an eviction appeal filed by displaced Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah.

The ruling, reported by Haaretz on Tuesday, said that settler groups which had pushed several families out of their homes had succeeded in proving they owned the property.

The ruling may give future license to settler groups to move into dozens more Palestinian homes in the occupied neighborhood, and it opens the door for proceedings that Palestinian officials say are based on false documents.

Following the ruling, however, Haaretz reported, "settlers will be able to move ahead with plans to build in the area."

With an end to the settlement construction moratorium in the West Bank putting peace talks in jeopardy, the announcement of new projects displacing families in Jerusalem could heighten tension in the city.

Israel needs some violence about now. This should do the trick.

Since it was determined in a court of law that the homes belong to the "settlers"--- how is it that you can proclaim in this article that:

1) The Jews are "settlers"
2) That the homes are Palestinian homes

It sounds to me like the people who should be considered "settlers" are the Palestinians who were occupying the Jewish homes. Actually, they should be considered "squatters". They illegally "squat" on land that doesn't belong to them.

Because settlers by def.are illegal there, that is why. International law deemed them illegal.

Its totally ridiculous, I think the Israeli government have no self respect, no self pride or not even a sense of guilt of what they doing. Israel knows that the land don't belong to them, they are occupying the land after the war in 67. And by law they are not allowed to expand or move their population in occupy land. But again we must admit that Israel is facing with a weaker power, considering Israel military, and until that change, the status quo will remain unchallenged.

Court in Israel is a joke! Even the German Reich had courts. Salazar had courts (remember gajo portugu?s?)!! Filipe, are you naive or accomplice?

Biased Israeli occupation courts are giving our land to settlers... Anyway, I wouldn't mind to give it to them if they gave us back the 10.000 Palestinian homes taken in West Jerusalem in 1948.

The Israeli settlers have no sense of guilt whatsoever. That you champion such behaviour says a lot about you.

They are called Israeli 'settlers' because every country in the world apart from Israel recognises East Jerusalem as part of the future Palestininan state. World opinion is changing (thank god for the internet!), more and more people around the world are feeling outraged by the injustice and immorality which is taking place. Globally united resistance will be victorious :)
