Israel’s military routinely demolishes Palestinian homes in East Palestine and Jerusalem due to lack of a building permit, a cynical method of dispossessing Palestinians of their legitimate property. Many of these structures were built before Israel was created in 1948.

REPRESSION, RESISTANCE CONTINUE LOCKED IN STRUGGLE
As the quest to commit genocide in Gaza falters due to international pressure and a UN-demanded 5-hour ceasefire to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza, The occupiers from the Jewish military state step up the repression in the ‘West Bank’ of Palestine. The frustration is taken out on Palestinians there, who don’t have the courtesy to just lay down and die, or at least vacate the premises so Jews from Brooklyn can move in. Those not complying will be shot, rounded up or homes demolished. Because the Jewish military state engages in punitive home demolitions, which it has decided now, for the three suspects in the “disappearance” of the three “missing” Jewish settler colonists. Not convicted, just suspects. Proper civilised countries do a police investigation and charge people in court. Israel is not civilised. At all. Not even remotely.

Israel is to resume its barbaric punitive home demolitions of those Palestinians, not who built without the proper “permit” but who are suspects of crimes (not convicted) much to effective in their activism, or belong to/are affiliated with/have sympathy for Hamas, the only party that poses an actual challenge to Jewish dominance of Palestinians.

Punitive house demolition as retribution because prison is not enough

Israel knows that it may not demolish a house unless there is a overriding military necessity and that absent that necessity, it is considered collective punishment. But that never stops Israel as it routinely and blatantly flouts international law without consequence. That will not last as long as it hopes. The constant conflation between a criminal act and terrorism serves only to desensitise not only Israelis but the world – we no longer take Israel seriously when it cries about terrorists, and that is as it should be, since it excels at propagandistic histrionics and hyperbole.

Israel decides to continue policy: demolish houses of suspects

As Israel’s usual brutally violent policies go, this one has been tried before and discontinued, while its other vicious brutality goes on unabated and unchecked (and unpunished). It has decided to begin (again) the policy of demolishing the houses of those who are suspected of terroristic activity – not charged, not convicted – just suspected. If all of the homes of ‘suspected terrorists’ houses were plotted on a map, one would most likely find that they just happen to be located on territory that Israel covets… desperately covets… that has resources that Israel covets.
