Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sensing victory, Jerusalem 'shabab' turn Sheikh Jarrah into major crisis

The Palestinians have succeeded in turning the dispute over the ownership of a number of houses in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah into a major crisis that has now caught the attention of the United Nations, the European Union and the US administration, as well as several countries and local and foreign media organizations.

Palestinians praised the removal of the barricades as a "big victory" and bragged about how the "shabab (youths) of Jerusalem" had forced Israel to capitulate and this perceived capitulation is seen as a sign of weakness that is further emboldening the "shabab."

Some Palestinians also refer to Israel's failure to evacuate the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, located alongside the Jerusalem-Jericho highway, as yet another achievement in the arm-twisting battle with Israel.
