Visualizing Palestine: Residency Revocation

Since 1967, Israel has revoked the residency status of more than 14,500 Palestinians from Jerusalem. Revocation of residency leads to forcible transfer, a war crime under the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court and a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention. 

After Israel’s illegal annexation of East Jerusalem, Israel created the status of permanent resident for Palestinians living in the city, making entry into and residency in Jerusalem a revocable privilege instead of an inherent right. This bureaucratic policy, not applicable to Jewish Israelis, is just one of a series of systems designed to forcibly transfer Palestinians from Jerusalem.

About the Critical Currents in Islam

The Critical Currents in Islam (CCI) Page poses important questions about what makes movements and practices “Islamic,” and critically deconstructs the notion of an eternal, unchanging religion. With this in mind, we also seek to highlight the variation and nuances of these Islamic movements and practices as they occur within communities across the globe. Our goal in designating a space for the study of Islam within Jadaliyya is to examine the ways in which Islam is but one of a multiplicity of factors that interact in the cultivation of political, economic, and sociocultural arrangements, often yielding varied outcomes across the breadth of Islamic societies.
