THE ISRAELI SETTLEMENT IN SILWAN

In the beginning of the 90s, a private organization called Elad (El Ir-David, To City of David) started to operate in the village. In Elad’s mission statement it is written that its mission is to “strengthen the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, and this in the means of tours, guidance, populating, and publishing material.” In practice, Elad feverishly worked to gain ownership of houses and lands in the village and particularly in Wadi Hilwah neighborhood.
