Tent of Nations received 3 orders from the Israeli authorities to stop working and cultivating land

Dear Friends,

Today, the 14th of February at 1.30 PM and as we were working on our land, specifically in the tree of life orchard, we found on three different places , papers with maps signed by the civil administration of Judea and Samaria which is the Israeli military government.

The papers say that we have to stop working on the land specified on the map, because they declared it as a state land. According to them, this land doesn’t belong to us but it is a state land and we are cultivating it. The papers also say that if we want to challenge this order, we can appeal against it within 45 days in front of the military representative office.

It is ridiculous to receive something like that after 21 years of legal battle defending our land and the right to it in front of Israeli courts.

We sent those papers to our attorney in Jerusalem and he is going to appeal against it within the next days.

This is just to inform you about what happened today, please be aware that the situation might get worse, please be prepared in case actions are needed. In the meanwhile, our attorney will appeal against it and we will see what kind of reaction we receive.

We will keep you updated and will inform you about our next steps and how you can help.

Thank you so much for your support and solidarity. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Blessings and Salaam.

Daoud

How can we best persuade our U.S. government to see a more balanced view of the Palestinian struggle for autonomy? I’ve written to our President, Senators and Representative. One Senator replied that she’s in full agreement with strong military support for Israel since “they have a right to defend themselves”. Shall we just inundate them with repeated appeals?
