Houses Demolished, Outcry Missing

When Israel demolishes Palestinian homes that have been illegally built or that have been co-opted for terrorist use, there is international outcry. Elliott Abrams, writing at the Council on Foreign Relations, notes that, when the Hamas terrorists who run the Gaza Strip do it – and do it without any judicial oversight – there is … silence.

The government of Israel sometimes demolishes homes, saying that they were illegally built on public land. And of course, it is a member state of the United Nations, not a terrorist group. But when it does, one can expect various governments to condemn the action and can expect action in the UN Human Rights Council, perhaps even a debate in the UN General Assembly or Security Council in New York.

    I sincerely wish this country had a leader with the courage and conviction of Mr. Netanyahu!Instead we have a ‘man’ who “leads from behind” and is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood! God Help Us All!

    The U.N. is a joke and holds no credibility, they should be disbanded. The U.N. has deteriorated into the depths of degradation and has become a caldron of intolerance, bigotry, and evil.

    The main visible media like CNN, BBC ITN and others lies and deceives. They are preoccupied with Palestinian gains rather than to look at the truth. We are with you Jerusalem.

      “I love THE LORD and I love His people” it’s the way I like to capitalize letters or words which make reference to THE LORD (ADONAI). I just wanted to share my own feelings and convictions. G-d bless.

    of course the main stream media is against Israel
    as it is the same that looks to their god Barak Obama to take over America and make it a socialist country.

    Unfortunately it fits the psychology of the Palestinians and their supporters to a “T” It also fits the agenda of or main stream media. So what’s new?

    When Palestinians demolish houses or execute or rape other Palestinians this is all O.K.because they are doing it to each other BUT if the Zionist Entity says BOO to a Palestinian this is unacceptable

    This is like Conservatives are held to a different standard in the U.S.. The U.N. holds Israel to a different standard. Can you see the hypocritical element of racism in these two things.
