why can't an otherwise good article like this get their facts straight when they write an article like this? the arab village of silwan came into existence after the israeli war for independance, when this portion of jerusalem fell to the muslims and the jordanians illegally annexed it and drove out or murdered the jews who were living there. for the next 18 years, under illegal jordanian occupation, the jewish town was 'settled' by muslims.
