HUJ Amiel Vardi rejects Israeli court. His racist call to activists: "Join protest against the Judaization of East Jerusalem"

Editor's note: Israel is a Jewish State and East Jerusalem is not supposed to be "Judenrein" (cleansed of Jews).

Wikipedia gives a summary of the dispute in Sheikh Jarrah:  

Jewish groups have sought to regain property once owned by Jews, including the Shepherd Hotel compound, the Mufti's Vineyard, the building of the el-Ma'amuniya school, the Simeon the Just/Shimon HaTzadik compound, and the Nahlat Shimon neighborhood. In 2001, Israeli Jews moved into a sealed section of the al-Kurd family's house and refused to leave, claiming the property was owned by Jews. In 2008, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that the Shimon Hatzadik property belonged to the Sephardi Community Committee. The Arab families had protected tenant status as long as they paid rent but several families refused to pay, ending in their eviction. In August 2009, the court evicted the al-Hanoun and al-Ghawi families from two homes in Sheikh Jarrah and Jewish families moved in based on a Supreme Court ruling that the property was owned by Jews.
