In October 2020, an Israeli court ruled that several Palestinian families living in Sheikh Jarrah—a neighborhood of East Jerusalem- were to be evicted by May 2021 with their land handed over for Jewish settlers. In February 2021 the appeals hearings began and prompted widespread protests from both sides: pro eviction parties who support this decision because it will allow more homes on what they see as public property; while others argue against such action being forced out due rights under international law or simply stating no one deserves less opportunity than anyone else regardless of if you’re black, white brown yellow red green blue purple pink orange!

This year, the Muslim community in Israel observe their fasting month of Ramadan with great significance. They are aware that this is an opportunity for them to show how committed they are towards peace and harmony by refraining from eating or drinking during daylight hours each day until after sunset – when Muslims traditionally break their fasts together at home before dinner time begins again later tonight (or early tomorrow). But there has been less dedication shown among many settlers who frequent areas around Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound located within Jerusalem’s Old City walls, rather than limiting themselves solely only.
