As we speak, Palestinians are being forcibly removed from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah. Palestinians homes are routinely bulldozed, and when Palestinians even attempt to abide by these asinine permit laws, they are denied 98% of the time. So i) their already decrepit homes are demolished, ii) they cannot build homes for themselves, iii) they cannot even live in these illegal settlements - they have no choice but to be internally displaced persons or be forced to move elsewhere. I don't know how much more evidence one needs to conclude that this is ethnic cleansing, and if this isn't ethnic cleansing, I don't know what is.
