Shimon Yehoshua (19xx-1982) ... Israeli Mizrahi who tried with his body to stop the bulldozers that destroyed his home. He was killed in 1982 atop his roof in Kfar Shalem by a police officer who shot him at close range. He was trying to prevent government bulldozers from destroying a room the family had built by enclosing a balcony. Twenty years later, the incident had still to be investigated.

At the same time, businessman Rafi Unger added one and a half stories without a license to his Pyramid House on Hamasger Street, former Knesset member Avraham Shapira (Agudat Yisrael) converted the car-park at his villa into an office and ritual bath without a permit and Rehavam Ze'evi erected seven illegal buildings at the Land of Israel Museum, with the help of contractor Bezalel Mizrahi. These things were published at the time in the now defunct newspaper Al Hamishmar. The municipal engineering authority wanted to apply the law in Kfar Shalem and Jaffa and ignored these three cases, which were a representative sample of building violations in the northern part of the city.
