"Watch: Horror throughout the Israeli Occupation State. The reason - clowns! "
[Tranlation of video subtitles:] "Murderous clowns roam the occupied Palestinian cities of the interior  in order to arouse panic at the time when the horror film 'IT' is being screened in 'Israel.' The plot [of the film] is of a mentally unstable clown who hunts children and kills them. Now, the film is suddenly becoming a reality, spreading terror among the residents of the interior  occupied territories. The clowns have been seen carrying knives and axes to commit their crimes. Most of the victims of these crimes are children and the elderly, as they cannot defend themselves. Dozens of them have been arrested over the past two weeks on charges of carrying fake weapons in order to spread terror and fear. A few days after the phenomenon began, one of the clowns stabbed a 15-year-old Palestinian boy and injured him moderately. Israeli sources call the masked men Terrorist Clowns, while interior residents [Arab citizens of Israel] call it "the frightening phenomenon". The Occupation police claim that it is difficult to control them. However, the screening of horror movies such as the film 'IT' may be a factor that is causing the spreading of the Murderous Clown phenomenon. When will it end?" -Al-Quds News Network **
[Selected comments:] - "With all due respect, I am surprised that it's being called the "Occupation state".

"The Occupation threatens to demolish 800 houses in Jabel Al-Mukaber, Report by Christine Rinawi."
From the video: "The threat of demolition of over 800 houses in Jabel Al-Mukaber, occupied southern Jerusalem, shows the silent expulsion of the [Arab] Jerusalemites, who are kicked out on the grounds that they do not have building permits under the laws of the Occupation municipality, which serves as the hand that empties Jerusalem of its residents.
Jabal Al-Mukaber's situation is similar to that of the other villages and neighborhoods of Jerusalem that have been under the guillotine of the continuous Occupation for 50 consecutive years.
Attorney Ra'ed Bashir, a member of the monitoring committee in Jabel Mukaber, says 'the number of houses under threat of demolition because the building is without a permit, something the resident can't avoid, is over 800. They are under threat of demolition at every opportunity in the next few years because of the difficulty in obtaining a permit and the high costs involved. This is the result of Occupation policy to pressure the [residents of] Jabel Al-Mukaber.'
A resident of Jabal Al-Mukaber must not expand and build on his land, even though he can see settlements being built and taking over his village. He can try to get a building permit to avoid demolitions and fines, but in the end he will be refused. This crisis is not only suffocating the residents of Jabal Al-Mukaber, but also over 20,000 houses in Jerusalem that have been issued demolition orders.
Bassam Abdo, a resident of Jabel Mukaber, says 'there is no longer anywhere to build. If not a road, there is a tunnel ... If not a tunnel, there is a security road ... If there is no security road, there is a road that will turn into a security road. We are 10 in the house, naturally with my father. We asked for a building permit for 600 square meters. Of the 600 meters, we were only given 60 square meters to build, so we had to build without a permit. And because we built without a permit, the municipality came.'
Jabel Al-Mukaber has been subject to collective punishment several times. The streets and its neighborhoods serve as an area of operation for Occupation forces to let out its rage on every area that preserves its Arab identity.
Demolition, expulsion, persecution, and so on -- these are all nightmares that follow residents of Jerusalem in their occupied city. The Occupation couldn't find a method to completely uproot the residents from Jerusalem, and instead just tightens its grip on it.
From Jabel Al-Mukaber, this is Christine Rinawi -- Palestine T.V., occupied Jerusalem." -Palestine T.V.
"The Occupation's reinforced operations continue in Jerusalem, despite the end of the Hebrew holiday season
Israeli Occupation forces continued to impose increased security measures Sunday in Jerusalem, particularly in the city center and in the Old City. These measures had been imposed from the beginning of the Jewish Sukkot holiday, which ended Thursday night.
Our correspondent said that the Occupation is still deploying military and police patrols, both on foot and mounted on horseback, in streets parallel and adjacent to the historic Jerusalem walls. The foot patrols erected barriers at random throughout many of the city's streets and roads.
On Saturday, Occupation forces closed Bab Al-Amud [Damascus Gate], one of the famed gates of the Old City, and prohibited the entry or exit of residents from the Old City, claiming that a suspicious object had been found. In the end, it turned out that this was a book bag belonging to one of the Jerusalemite students.
In addition, Occupation forces have been stopping youth in the center of Jerusalem, particularly on the road from Bab Al-Amud to Bab A-Sahra [Herod's Gate], through Sultan Suleiman Street to Salah A-Din Street. They search them provocatively, and often times humiliate them with police dogs."
