Shared Jerusalem - a euphemism for apartheid racism

The Ir-Amim organizaion has taken up the cause of the "unfortunate" Palestinian "victims" of "Zionist oppression" in Sheikh Jarrah, Arabs who are supposedly being expelled to make way for setters.  Ir-Amim is one of those "rights" and "peace" and "democracy" groups funded by the Ford foundation and the New Israel Fund and several European governments as well as the EU (see New Israel Fund Supports anti-Israel propaganda).

I thought democracy was a system of government in which citizens choose the representatives who decide policy, and citizens form and fund groups to influence policy. Silly me! "Democracy," according to those who claim to know, is a system in which foreign governments and rich people decide policy for us. With their unblemished historical record, Europeans can clearly be trusted to have the best interests of the Jewish people at heart, and to do what is best for the
Jews. American Jews and the Ford Foundation are more familiar with the problems of the Middle East than us ignorant Israelis.
It turns out that the Arabs (27 families in all) are being evicted from the houses because they did not pay rent for over 35 years. This little detail is generally hidden from accounts of the saga. It also seems that Ir-Amim, which claims to advocate "shared Jerusalem" actually is advocating apartheid and ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem. Christians and Muslims can share East Jerusalem, not Jews, because Jews would be in "ongoing conflict with their environment" according to Ir-Amim.
