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.

    The root cause of all that is wrong in Israel and Palestine – is the belief that some people are more worthy or valuable than others.

    John Kerry and others tell Israel that if they keep doing what they’re doing, they’ll have an apartheid state. Most Israelis consider that to be a promise, not a threat. Come to that, it’s already an apartheid state.
