«Deeply regrettable«.US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday criticized Israel for the eviction of two Arab Israeli families from an Arab neighborhood in east Jerusalem.
The evictions came after the Supreme Court ruled that Arab families had been living illegally, in rented houses owned by Jewish families.
«The eviction of families and demolition of homes in east Jerusalem is not in keeping with Israeli obligations and I urge the government of Israel and municipal officials to refrain from such provocative actions»,Clinton said.
Clinton’s statements came during a meeting in Washington with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh. Also Egypt sent a protest note:
«This is an act of dispossessing Arabs of their property», the message said, according to an Israeli government source.«Israel’s moves are sabotaging Egypt’s efforts to advance the regional peace process».
The message was delivered to Ambassador to Cairo Shalom Cohen by Hossam Zaki, who is Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit’s bureau chief and has often served as his envoy to Israel, the government source said.
Cohen tried to explain that the homes in question have been Jewish-owned for more than 80 years, and the eviction was ordered by a court because the Palestinian tenants violated the terms of their rental contract. However, this failed to mollify Zaki.
Sweden, which holds the European Union’s rotating presidency, also denounced the evictions yesterday, terming them «unacceptable» Such acts are «illegal under international law and «contravene repeated calls by the international community … to refrain from any provocative actions in East Jerusalem», it said in a statement.
The evictions «confirm a worrying trend that runs counter to the creation of an atmosphere conducive to achieving a viable and credible solution» to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the statement added.

The US interference in an Israeli Supreme Court matter is a act of Fascism. It reminds me about how Benito Mussolini put the Italian court system aside, during the Brown Shirts takeover in Italy in 1922.
Another parallel is the former Pakistani Military Dictator Pervez Musharraf sacking the Supreme Court judges in Pakistan. That was just a couple of years ago.
If the Barack Hussein Obama US Political Government had interfered in the work of the US Supreme Court, it would have been looked up on as a anti-constitutional cue. It would have put the United States of America on the brink of civil war.
Almost equally bad is Hillary Clinton`s` open invitation to theft and robbery of private properties in full daylight.
Where in the World is stealing of peoples property allowed?
Who told Clinton that «Arabs» can unlawfully occupy a house, that has been purchased and owned by a Jewish family for the last 80 years?
I wonder what the United States Supreme Court would have said to the state of Israel, if the Jewish nation would try to put it self above the US court, and demand a revocation of an order by the US justices?
Third and final:
Hillary Clinton has by this statement proven her self to be anti-constitutional. She has not only breached the International code of conduct between sovereign states, but have also become a security treat to the US Constitution. The US Supreme Court should take notice, and request the US President to immediately sack his Secretary of State. If the President do not listen, the Senate should start the legal process of impeachment to remove President Obama.
