Last Working-Class Jewish Settler Residents Evicted from Givat Amal
Givat Amal is one of Tel Aviv’s poorest neighborhoods, despite being situated in one of the city’s wealthier locations. The area has been described as “one of the most sought-after real estate areas” in the country, which is what led to the legal battle that began in 2005 when a development project led by business tycoon Yitzhak Tshuva was first approved for Givat Amal. The company’s plans called for tripling and gentrifying the area’s population by constructing seven luxurious high-rise buildings, and displacing the previously settled Jewish population, many of whom had lived there since the early years after the founding of the state, but without ownership rights. In fact, the last legally recognized residents of the area were the Palestinian Arabs of Al-Jammasin Al-Gharbi, numbering some 1,250 persons in 1948, who were uprooted during the 1948 war and whose rights to return to or be compensated for their abandoned property have been systematically denied by Israel ever since.

“I came to France from Morocco when I was 10 years old,” Eva Illouz told the crowd. “Although I was Jewish and from Morocco, I went to the same schools as the French, and my teachers gave me grades just like the French. I felt that I wasn’t defined by my origin or religion. As a girl I felt deep in my bones the meaning of living in a country where I am treated as an equal.”
FULL TEXT: Haaretz Publisher Schocken Calls for Israelis to ‚Join the Struggle‘ at Nation-state Rally
One of the most significant threats to Jewish nationalism, as expressed in the nation-state law, is Arab representation in the Knesset, according to a portion of the Israeli population. So I tell you, the Arab citizen: Do not give the right-wing government a prize – despair and isolation. You all have the political power to reshape public discourse in Israel by participating in elections. Use it.
And to all the citizens of Israel, from every tribe, I call to join the struggle against the elimination of democracy, to develop an Israeli society, pluralistic and prosperous, with the participation of minorities in the economy and in politics.

Das friedliche Zusammenleben der Völker und Heimat aller Religionen, das ist die Berliner Republik, nicht Israel
„In 15 Jahren von politischem Aktivismus, und rund acht Jahren als ein Journalist, kann ich mich nicht an eine Zeit erinnern, an der Menschen um mich so angsterfüllt waren ihre Meinung zu sagen. Jedenfalls nicht Juden, und definitiv nicht in Tel Aviv“.
Haggai Matar, Jewish Daily Forward, 21. Juni 2014
„Ich lese ihnen einmal vor, was Professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz, ein entschiedener Gegner der Besatzung, 1968 geschrieben hat, ein Jahr nach dem Sechs-Tage-Krieg: ´Ein Staat, der über eine feindliche Bevölkerung mit Millionen Fremden herrscht, wird notgedrungen zu einem Geheimdienststaat, mit allen Folgen für die Erziehung, die Rede und Meinungsfreiheit und die Demokratie. Die für jedes Kolonialsystem typische Korruption wird auch Israel erfassen. Die Verwaltung wird arabische Aufstandsbewegungen unterdrücken und sich arabische Quislinge und Verräter heranziehen.´ Was halten Sie von dieser Prophezeihung in Hinblick auf den Staat Israel heute?“
„Ich stimme dem Wort für Wort zu.“
„Geht es etwas genauer?“
„Wozu? Jedes Wort das er geschrieben hat, ist in Fels gehauen.“
Ex-Elitesoldat der israelischen Streitkräfte Dror Moreh, Regisseur und Fragesteller, und Yuval Diskin, ehemaliger Leiter des Inlandsgeheimdienstes Shin Bet, in „The Gatekeepers“ („Töte zuerst“).
„Warum haben Sie sich dafür entschieden, mit Leuten vom Geheimdienst zu sprechen und nicht mit Politikern?“
„Weil niemand Politikern traut. Politiker würden ihre Mutter verkaufen, um eine Stimme zu bekommen.“
Dror Moreh zu seiner Dokumentation „The Gatekeepers“ im Interview mit der „Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung“.
Seit Jahren emigrieren Israelis in die Stadt, die der Berliner Republik ihren Namen gibt. Dafür gibt es einen Grund. Dieser Staat und seine Regierung sind es nicht. Als sich ihr Kollege Yair Lapid, seines Zeichens glorreicher Finanzminister, im Oktober 2013 lauthals über die Flucht gerade junger und kreativer Israelis nach Berlin beschwerte, entblödete sich der Botschafter der Merkel-Steinmeier-Regierung nicht, sich zu entschuldigen und zu behaupten, diese quasi-Abtrünnigen würden ja Deutschland bald wieder verlassen.
