Dozens of homes in the southern Gaza town of Rafah were knocked down with bulldozers.
Hamas police wielding clubs beat and pushed residents out of dozens of homes in the southern Gaza town of Rafah on Sunday. Than the Hamas Government knocked the buildings down with bulldozers, residents said.
Hamas said the homes were built illegally on government land. For years, Palestinians have criticized Israel for destroying houses, mostly because they were built without permits. Now, Rafah residents complained, their own government has done the same.
Nazira Abu Jara, 56, said policewomen wearing face veils typical of conservative Muslim women beat her with clubs until she fled her house with her husband and two children. Residents said between 30 and 40 homes were torn down and more demolitions were expected Monday.
When a single Arab house in Jerusalem has been demolished, Global Media is there to cover the event.
When Hamas has demolished Arab houses in Gaza, there is not a single line in our TV and newspapers.
What about in your own city or village?
Can anyone build a house anywhere, without approval from the Government?
While the Global Media cry foul when the mayor of Jerusalem act when Arabs build illegal constructions, they overlook that the Muslim World has death sentence for an Arab that even sell a property to a Jew.
Jewish properties in Jerusalem were confiscated when the Jordanian army attacked and occupied East Jerusalem in 1948.
Should these stolen properties be returned to their rightful owners?
The logic seems to be, that while Jews must follow rules and regulations, Muslims can do whatever they want, and get away with it.
