Desperate plea from Umm Al Hiran
Arik Ascherman

Please read this desperate plea from Umm Al Hiran, and come tonight or early tomorrow. Tomorrow (Tuesday), starting at 7:00, the State of Israel is going to bulldoze almost 1/3 of the village of Israeli citizens residing where the State put them in 1956. The residents are calling on anybody who can to sleep there tonight, or to come early in the morning. Call 054-2450192, 050-5362580 or 050-5333850. I am abroad, so be there for the residents of Umm Al Hiran, be there for yourselves, and be there in my place.

From the residents:

`We are crying, `save us!` The situation is extremely grave. Tomorrow they want to uproot 15 structures and expel us without any alternative, no solution. Four farms and 11 homes. They want to destroy everything we have-Sheep, flocks, property. (Vehicles and flocks are to be confiscated. A. A.) They are ignoring the values and the humanity, if people have the ability to appeal to ministers, to the Prime Minister, to intervene. The High Court ruled in 2015 that if the State was to expel us, they had to provide an agreed upon place for us to go. We don`t know what will be the harm to the population, and the situation is very grave.`
