"Elders" attend anti-Israel protest

I could not find this story in any Western media:

Former American President Jimmy Carter was among a group that attended an East Jerusalem demonstration protesting the removal of Palestinians from their homes in the area. Carter praised the work of the Palestinian and left-wing Israeli activists present, who hold weekly demonstrations, and emphasized the importance of peaceful protest in their struggle.

Al Masry al-Youm says that Mary Robinson attended the rally as well, and that Carter addressed the crowd.

It should be emphasized that the Arabs who were evicted from the neighborhood hadn't paid their rent to the Jewish owners of the homes, and that the evictions have been upheld by Israel's Supreme Court. Which means that Carter and Robinson are effectively accusing Israel's legal system of being corrupt.

What honest brokers they are!
