Khan Al-Ahmar, (“The Red Inn”) is a Bedouin village situated near Y’rushalayim (Jerusalem) and lies adjacent to Hwy. 1. Khan al-Ahmar is located between the Israeli towns of Ma’ale Adumim and Kfar Adumim in Area C of Judea and Shomron/Samaria (the West Bank of the Jordan River).
The village gets its name from what is traditionally identified as “The Red Inn” (Khan al-Ahmar in Arabic), which was built in the 13th century on the site of St Euthymius’ monastery, after it was destroyed by the Mamluk sultan Baybars. The monastery had also included an inn, and developed on the remains of The Church of St. Euthymius, built in the 5th century to commemorate Jesus’s New Testament story of the Good Samaritan.
On 24 May 2018, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that, starting from June, the Israeli army can move the village to a different location. Justice Noam Sohlberg wrote that the grounds for the decision, which rejected a villagers’ petition for a stay in the order, was that the residents had unlawfully engaged in building both the school and housing, and that it was not within the court’s remit to meddle in the execution of Israeli state laws.
On 6 September 2018 the High Court of Justice ruling cleared the way for the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar after it rejected a final appeal in a case that has drawn international criticism.
RAZE it, Raze it! It’s time for the Bedouin to either ASSIMILATE or move on to their homeland in Arabia!
