In light of Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in #SheikhJarrah and the #Naqab happening right now, I thought it useful to draw on @PalStudies archive for some historical context. #Thread
In 1985, Palestinian jurist Hanna Dib Nakkara, published an article titled, "Israeli Land Seizure Under Various Defense and Emergency Regulations" detailing Israeli theft of Palestinian land in th language of law. tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.230… #Apartheid #SettlerColonialism
While Zionists frame Britain’s Defense Emergency Regulations (1945) as technology to crush Zionist opposition to British rule, Nakkara shows that they were originally enacted as orders in council against Palestinian Arabs. #EthnicCleansing #SheikhJarrah #Naqab

TODAY: Palestinian Bedouins try to stop Israeli bulldozers being used in a tree-planting program carried out by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) on the land of the #Naqab desert, also known as #Negev.
Since its creation in 1901, the JNF has been acquiring lands serving the settler-colonial project in the region of Palestine. Photos by Activestills.
To this day, Israel bans Palestinian refugees of the Naqab, most of whom are currently in Gaza's refugee camps, from returning to their ethnically cleansed towns in favor of Israeli settlers. Photos by @OrenZiv_ / Activestills
