Segregated and Unequal

Since 2015, the main street of Salaymeh and Gaith neighborhoods in Hebron have been divided down the middle into a Jewish side and Muslim side. In May 2017, Israel fenced in the entire neighborhood area, including the Palestinian side of the streets. They installed a door with a buzzer alarm that dos off any time someone opens the door. Each night at 11pm, as well as at the soldiers' discretion, the door is locked and the community imprisoned inside.   

Forty-eight families live under these live in the imprisoned neighborhood. Elderly and disabled must navigate rough terrain from the door to reach their homes and children must make their play spaces within the confines of the prison.

Dear Israeli Civil Administration, 

As people opposed to segregation and the imprisoning of communities, we demand you remove the fence around the Salaymeh and Gaith neighborhoods.

    How can the Israel government and its people treat the Palestinian’s in this horrible manner even though some of their people were treated so badly during WW2. Do they not understand or possess any empathy at all?

    Oppression of Palestinians does not make Israel more safe.

    In fact, the opposite is true – endless war is not in the interest of Israeli citizens.

    Apartheid failed in South Africa and it surely will in Palestine also.

    Please end the segregation and the imprisoning of communities. Let’s try something radical, like attempting to live in peace, and seeing each other as equals.

    Obviously Israel disagrees with the UN Declaration of Human Rights.
