Countering Negative Practices in Jerusalem
Much is being done to change and endanger the status quo of Jerusalem which has held for at least 265 years. The Israeli authorities are in a rush to alter the character of the Holy City through various Judaization schemes, such as changing the names of Arab neighborhoods and streets from Arabic to Hebrew and evicting of Palestinian families as in Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan. This panel will examine what can be done to counteract these negative actions.
