Sweden is not a model … Does the closure protect people from the Corona virus?


The closure and the interruption of international air traffic due to the Corona pandemic, prompted the governments of countries to implement campaigns to evacuate their citizens stranded abroad and return them to their families.

However, a Jerusalemite girl studying in the United States complains that none of the authorities or authorities have recognized the responsibility for returning her to Jerusalem, despite the difficult circumstances in which she suffers.

Sabreen Taha, posted a video on her Facebook account that she said is Palestinian living in the city of Jerusalem, but she is currently studying in the United States, but so far she has not found any authority or authority that recognizes that she is one of its nationals to return her to her city of Jerusalem.

Sabreen holds an Israeli travel document that allows her to travel through the Lod airport, and permanent residence in Jerusalem, but when she tried to communicate with the Israeli embassy in America, they informed her that the priority was for Israeli citizens, and that she was not a citizen there.

She stated that the Palestinian authorities could not assist her.

It also carries a Jordanian travel document, but without a national number, and for this it is not Jordanian, and the Jordanian authorities informed it that the priority is to evacuate Jordanian nationals and students stranded outside the country.

She says that this dilemma is not suffering for her alone, but suffering for all Jerusalemites. They want to preserve their permanent residences in the city in which they were born Jerusalem, and the fear of deprivation from returning to their city if they travel remains, and that is why they keep their dreams of stability outside their city limited.

The sovereignty over the city of Jerusalem is at the center of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, as the Palestinians adhere to East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state in any future peace agreement, which is rejected by the Israeli government.

On December 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, provoking the wrath of the Palestinians, to assert at a ceremony announcing his peace plan that the city would not be divided.

East Jerusalem and its ancient city are considered part of the West Bank, which Israel annexed with an area of ​​70 square kilometers in 1967 in a move that was not recognized by the international community.

Jerusalem’s Old City includes the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Gilded Dome of the Rock, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is part of the Temple Mount and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

There is also the Wailing Wall, “The Shining of Muslims”, which is the most sacred place for Jews, and there is also the Church of the Holy Sepulcher at the site where most Christians believe that Jesus was crucified and buried there.

More than 300,000 Palestinians live in East Jerusalem, along with more than 200,000 Israelis.

According to United Nations Resolution 181 of 1948, Jerusalem is subject to international guardianship.
