Under Guise Of Tourism, Settler Group In Charge Of “National Park”
The Jerusalem Municipality and the Israeli Ministry of Tourism will be allocating 4 million Israeli Shekels for a “sound and light” project, in what Israel calls the “City of David National Park” in Silwan Palestinian town, in occupied East Jerusalem. The project is run entirely by the Elad Association, the largest supporter of settlement in occupied Jerusalem.
Israeli daily, Haaretz, reported that the Finance Committee of the Jerusalem City Council approved NIS 1.1 Million for this project, in addition to the NIS 900,000 that were approved and allocated last year. The Ministry of Tourism will also be allocating NIS 2 million.
The International Middle East Media Center is running an URGENT online fundraising campaign.
