Arab League warns of Israeli plan to expel prominent Palestinians from Jerusalem

The Arab League has warned of a “dangerous” Israeli plan to expel prominent Palestinians from Jerusalem in the context of escalating Israeli activities in the Occupied Territories. In a press release, the League cited well-informed sources in the occupied city in claiming that the Israelis intend to expel 384 Jerusalemites, including political activists, from their own city because of their opposition to Israeli policies.

The statement added that Israeli intelligence services have already told the individuals concerned that they are deportation targets and threatened to deport them out of occupied Jerusalem in September if they don’t change their anti-occupation and political activism. The plan in question has apparently been approved by Israel’s Public Security Minister, Yitzhak Aharonovitch, although its implementation and timing are in the hands of the security and intelligence services.

The Jerusalemite parliamentarians threatened with deportation believe that the plan is part of Israel’s Judaization project for Jerusalem, aimed at emptying the city of those Palestinian who expose the occupation authority’s schemes through their activism.
