Michael Ben-Yair
Sheikh Jarrah

Before the 1948 war both Jews and Arabs lived in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. The Jews were evacuated soon after the war started and were compensated by the State of Israel for the property they left behind.

Since 1967 Jews managed to return to this neighborhood and evict Arabs from houses they inhabited for many years.

In plain language Michael Ben-Yair points out the moral flaws and the legal consequences of laws allowing Jews to reclaim property for which they have already been compensated, and suggests new solutions.
