Jawad Siam is a resident of East Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood. A settler organization pushed out his family members from a portion of his home by establishing ownership in court. Now the settlers are applying pressure on Siam to leave the rest of the house. Thier cruel, Kafkaesque ploy: forcing him to pay back rent for years of living in his own home.
