Jewish Groups Use Legal Means to Return Property to Jewish Ownership
Ateret Cohanim petitioned the court to evict 22 Arab squatters from Jewish owned property, and the court ruled in Ateret Cohanim's favor.
Ateret Cohanim has worked for decades to reclaim property stolen from Jews, by repurchasing these properties and using legal means to evict illegal squatters.
Silwan's original name was - Shiloach. In fact, the Dung Gate (ie. Shit Gate) by the Kotel, the real name has historically been - SHILOACH GATE. My personal view is that the Gate should be officially renamed Shiloach Gate, to give better respect to the Kotel.
The Shiloach Jewish community was established during the 19th century by Yemenite immigrants, and destroyed during the Arab riots of 1929 and 1936.
The Arabs occupied the Jewish property in 1948, and from 1967, a lot of effort is being invested to reclaim this property.
Ateret Cohanim is continuing its efforts to purchase and reclaim even more property for Jewish residence.
