Tom Usher wrote or added | "The office of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Tuesday defended plans to demolish Palestinian houses in the city's eastern sector to make way for a tourist center, after Defense Minister Ehud Barak lashed out at authorities over the project.
"Barak, who is in the United States for a series of meetings with top officials, faced criticism and demands for explanations after the Jerusalem municipal planning committee decided to destroy 22 houses in the Arab neighborhood of Silwan, which it says were built illegally."
A Palestinian home that was built illegally according to the Zionists is any Palestinian home that stands in the way of a complete takeover by those Zionists. It doesn't matter if the Palestinian home has stood for a hundred years or a thousand. The Zionists are takers, that's all. They take by whatever means the rest of the world will allow them to get away with.
This does not mean that I support Hamas and Sharia. I don't. If and when Hamas renounces violence and completely comes around to equal rights, religious and otherwise, for non-Muslims, I'll give them credit for wising up.
