In the Palestinian neighbourhood of Silwan, Mohammed Sumarin and his family may be evicted from their home due to efforts of the Jewish National Fund (JNF), an Israeli charity that claims the house for its own. Silwan is coveted real estate, with the Al Aqsa mosque and the Wailing Wall just a quarter mile away. We are not living like human beings,” Mr Sumarin says. “We cannot sleep at night.
