Democracy Now! | Israeli Lawmakers Pose for Mocking Photo on Evicted Palestinian Family’s Sofa
Two Israeli lawmakers are drawing controversy for a photograph showing them posing on the sofa of a recently evicted Palestinian family in East Jerusalem. The Natcheh family was forced out of their home last week to make way for Jewish settlers after an eight-year effort by the Israeli government to evict them. The land had been in their family since the 1930s. A photograph posted on Facebook shows Israeli Knesset members Michael Ben-Ari and Aryeh Eldad boastfully lounging on the Natcheh family’s sofa on the property’s front lawn.
