- PLO says a neighborhood that is 99% Arab is being "ethnically cleansed" by Jews (Elder of Ziyon) - "The paper says that Silwan has a population of 55,000. If that is true, than the 700 Jews who live there take up about 1% of the population. "Ethnic cleansing" has never been so benign"; "Here's the truth: Arabs attacked and killed Jews there in 1921 and again, more violently, in 1929. Almost all the Jews there were forced to flee for their lives. Ten families remained butThe British couldn't protect them and ordered the remainder to evacuate during the 1936-39 riots. The only ethnic cleansing that ever happened in "Silwan" was against Jews".
