Arab neighborhoodAre you really so woefully ignorant of history or just dishonest like other pro-Arab/Muslim propagandists? Silwan is Shiloach - the City of David (not Mohammud). Originally the Jewish Meyuchas family lived there:
"At the height of its growth, the community numbered approximately 150 families. This neighborhood was abandoned during the Arab uprising of 1936-1939. Evidence of Yemenite housing in the village can still be found in the indentations from mezuzot that remain on the doorposts of some of the homes." - City of David Virtual Tour
This Christian Zionist visited Shiloach when Jews first began their return there again, and I’ve been back many times with the Temple Mount Faithful who go to the Pool of Siloam to draw water during Sukkot.
Conflict in Jerusalem
They’ve placed barbed wire all around their “yard,” freshly tarred their roof, have an Israeli flag flying & are still clearing out all the junk the Arabs threw in there for the past 7 years. It was exciting to drive through that Palestinian village as they looked on. Earlier, being hot as usual, I started to roll down my window when they reminded me it’s better to be hot than get a stone in the face!
Silwan/Shiloach/City of David
Israel should utilize this opportunity to expel every single Arab family squatting in the City of David and make room for those who belong there - Jews!
