    Record Number of Palestinian Homes Destroyed by Israel in 2016 Rights Group

    In 2016, Israeli authorities had sped up demolishing homes of Palestinians in the occupied territories, rights group BTselem reported. The number was the highest in 12 years, during which the group kept systematic statistics of the demolitions.

    BTselem says the demolitions campaign intensified in August 2015 and unofficially halted later in the year, only to be resumed in 2016. Last year Israel demolished 274 homes in the West Bank (excluding East Jerusalem), thereby rendering homeless 1,134 individuals, including 591 minors.

    In East Jerusalem, Israeli authorities demolished 73 Palestinian homes in 2016, while 15 others were demolished by their owners on orders from the municipality. Violation of the orders would have carried hefty fines and would not likely prevent the demolitions or being charged the cost of carrying them out. Together those actions rendered 295 people homeless, including 160 minors, BTselem said. The authorities also demolished 48 non-residential buildings.

    Despite the differences between Area C and East Jerusalem in terms of which authorities operate in each area and the laws applied by Israel, the policy Israel pursues in the two areas is similar, and designed to minimize the number of Palestinians in as much land as possible, the group said. Authorities cynically cite illegal construction as a pretext for the demolitions, while at the same time authorities are the ones that prohibit legal construction by Palestinians.

    The rights advocates accuse the Israeli authorities of failing to authorize enough construction permits to meet the demand of the growing Palestinian population, leaving Palestinians with no choice but to build homes illegally. BTselem believes it to be part of a policy aimed at making living conditions for Palestinians unbearable and forcing them to leave.

    This policy, which all authorities work to uphold, severely and directly violates the most fundamental human rights of tens of thousands of Palestinians, and indirectly those of hundreds of thousands more. At the same time, the policy also offers decisive evidence that Israel has long-term plans to continue controlling the area, while oppressing and dispossessing its residents, it said.

    The Israeli authorities deny the accusations.

    The Civil Administration conducts enforcement operations against illegal construction in Judea and Samaria in accordance with the political echelons instructions, the coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories unit told Ynet, the online branch of the newspaper Yedioth Ahronot.

    In the past year, the Civil Administration approved zoning plans for the villages of Taanakh and Izbeit at-Tabib, and these days it is advancing the zoning plans of the city of Qalqilya, Nabi Ilyas, Hableh and Dahar al-Malakh. In addition, the Civil Administration is looking into and advancing several plans to legalize infrastructure and housing for the Bedouin population in Judea and Samaria, in the Maale Adumim area and the Jordan Valley, as part of which the families will be allotted plots of land including proper housing infrastructures such as water, electricity and sewage, while maintaining the population's lifestyle.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."
    /King Baldwin IV in the Kingdom of Heaven/

    Those Israelis are really slacking... After 70 years, still dealing with those Palestinians. There would have been many ways to solve that problem once and for all.

    It makes me question the actual power of the Jewish lobby - If "the Jews" really did control all of the Western media, why can't they impose a total blackout on the news from Palestine/Israel, at least the time to conduct a thorough solving of the Palestinian question?

    I've been hearing about these couples of houses being destroyed and handfuls of Palestinians getting killed periodically in the news since as long as I can remember. It's boring.

    If someone hates the Jews, he should just say "I hate the Jews" and not hide behind "Palestinian human rights", of which no one cares about. Palestinians are worse pieces of crap than the Jews are.

    Because they don't want to solve the problem. They profit of the conflict staying alive. Palestinians have a gain from it too. So the "problem" will persist indefinitely.
    Basst scho!
