Israel to expel lawmaker from Jerusalem

Ma’an – 04/06/2010

Jerusalem – Israeli authorities have summoned Jerusalem PLC member Mohammad Totah (Hamas) and delivered a deportation order stripping him off of his parliamentary residency in the city after seizing his ID card.

Totah told Ma’an that interrogators informed him that he had lost the “right of residency in Jerusalem,” and added that he would not be permitted to enter the city after 3 July under penalty of prosecution.

The Al-Quds Center for Social and Economic Rights, which is following up the deportation files of political and religious figures, stated that “The new procedure against Totah is the second of its kind within a week targeting elected PLC member residents of Jerusalem. … Similar orders were previously issued against other lawmakers in addition to former minister of Jerusalem Affairs Khaled Abu Arafah.”

“New Israeli deportation orders include threats to deport Hatem Abdul Qader, the Fatah official in charge of Jerusalem affairs, stripping him of his right to residency, which stems from pure political motives and has no legal basis,” the center said in a statement.

  1. This is exactly what happened when the Nazis were in Power and the World turned a blind eye for it to procede.
    This time this ruthless regime in occupied Palestine will not stop unless they conquered all of the Middle East and eventually the entire World.
    Wait until they ‘The Zionist’ come for you, because for them we are all considered Palestinians and a threat.
