Dr. Ashrawi on Israel’s dangerous plan to ethnically cleanse Palestinians from Jerusalem PLO press release - It is beyond a doubt that Israel is deliberately working to erase the Palestinian presence from our occupied capital and to distort the demographic, cultural, religious, and political character of the city. The proposal is a direct breach of international law and conventions. In accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 476, “measures which have altered the geographic, demographic and historical character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem are null and void and constitute a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War and also constitute a serious obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East.” [bz]31/10/2017
