From Sheikh Jarrah and Back
For early readers of this blog, you may remember my post on the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity Movement. This past Friday, the group led about 3,000 Israelis and Palestinians on a march for Palestinian independence through East Jerusalem from the Jaffa Gate to Skeikh Jarrah, the opposite route taken by those who turned out on Jerusalem Day, spewing their racist chants. You can read about the joint Israeli-Palestinian march at the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity Movement website here.
