Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Arab-Israeli Islamic Movement, speaks during Friday prayers on June 19, 2009, at a newly-erected protest tent in the Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, where Palestinian houses are threatened to be demolished by the city's municipality. If the municipality orders are carried out, 88 homes would be demolished, leaving 1,500 people homeless and constituting one of the largest forced evictions since Israel occupied and annexed mostly Arab east Jerusalem in the 1967 war.
