Arab Store Owners In East Jerusalem Forced To Write Store Names In Hebrew
The Jerusalem Municipality is trying to oblige store owners in Arab East Jerusalem neighborhoods to change the language of their store signs into Hebrew, and informed the owners that, unless they do so, their stores will not be licensed and they will have to be shut down.
Israeli paper, Maariv, reported Thursday that this decision is effective in all Arab neighborhoods, even those that are not inhibited by any Jewish person.
The International Middle East Media Center is running an URGENT online fundraising campaign.
