Abstract

This article investigates the precarious position of Palestinian Bedouin communities of Eastern Jerusalem in the post-Oslo geopolitical and legal context of the battle for Palestine. The humanitarian vulnerabilities and precarious nature of life for these communities (and further afield) is the result of Israel’s on-going attempts to forcibly transfer Bedouin groups in areas slated for settlement expansion and annexation. The Israeli quest for a ‘Greater Jerusalem’ makes Bedouin in Eastern Jerusalem particularly at risk. Repeated land grabs driven by the Israeli settler-colonial project in Palestine have intensified post-Oslo. Lands inhabited by Bedouin communities in Eastern Jerusalem constitutes a new locus of power to resist attempts to erase Palestinians from the Greater Jerusalem area, including through international courts.
