Another day in Apartheid Israel...
Israeli Mayor of occupied Jerusalem, Nir Bakat, approved the demolition of two structures built by the United Nations (UN) as temporary
emergency shelter for Palestinian families after Israel demolished their homes.
Israel strongly condemned the erection of the emergency shelters in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina. Israel accused the UN of
overstepping its bounds and asserted that the trailer homes are illegal and should be demolished according to reports in the Israeli dailies
Ha’aretz and The Jerusalem Post as well as the Palestine News Network.
Maxwell Gaylard, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territories defended the agencies actions as emergency humanitarian
assistance provided when the Palestinian families turned to the UN agency for help.
Gaylard echoed the concerns of other human rights groups in the area and noted that Palestinians in East Jerusalem apply for housing permits but do
not receive them. He added, “Where else could we put [the shelters]? We are helping the Palestinians on land that is theirs. Beit Hanina is occupied
Other officials at the agency noted that they did not require a permit for building because in addition to being build on Palestinian land, they are
only an emergency solution, are not connected to utilities, and do not have foundations.
"Where are your permits" say the Zionists, just like their Nazi counterparts, they should be ashamed.
So they bulldoze their homes then want to tear down the shelter. What a total joke, and they call themselves the only democracy in the Middle East.
Where is the democracy because I sure can't see it.
The shelters have the UN agency’s logo on them along with the flags of the donor countries of Great Britain, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Spain,
The Netherlands and Ireland. Israeli officials claimed that the flags were only there to embarrass Israel in these countries as it destroys their
If Israel is embarrassed by people outside of its borders watching as they demolish emergency housing for families, perhaps they should reassess their
decision to do so.
They should be!
This happens as
not cooperate with UN settlements probe
. I don't blame them for not cooperating, the world is finally waking up to the Apartheid state of
Israel and it's actions. The last thing they want is more people waking up to this nightmare state we call Israel.
I'm so pissed off right now, not only do they bulldoze their homes, but they also bulldoze their shelters. This is absolutely disgusting.
