Destroying Peace and Homes in Occupied Palestine

Twenty Palestinians Left Homeless in Jordan Valley
August 13th, 2007 | Posted in Press Releases


This morning at 8:30 am, The Israeli military demolished the small village of Al-Hadidya in the Jordan Valley. The four small homes that comprised the village were demolished and twenty Palestinians were left homeless. The homes were the property of four nuclear families, who have lived in the village since 1982, after the Israeli military evicted them from their previous dwellings in Al-Ruwak. Three weeks ago, the Israeli occupation forces informed the families that they had three weeks to move from the village. The Israeli occupation forces confiscated a tractor that was used to transport tanks of water in order to expedite the Palestinians’ departure. The army confirmed for Amnesty International and other HRWs in the area that the families would have to pay a fee of 4500 NIS in order to get the tractor back.

The Israeli occupation forces plan to use the area for shooting exercises and have been open about confiscating limited water resources for exclusive use by nearby illegal Israeli settlements. This incident is part of a larger Israeli plan to drive Palestinians out of the area through confiscating water resources, restricting movement and demolishing homes. In forcing out local Palestinians, Israel hopes to annex the Jordan Valley, preventing this area from becoming part of a future Palestinian state. According to B’tselem, every Israeli government has considered the Jordan Valley to be the eastern border of Israel and has sought to annex it. Israel has established 26 illegal Jewish-only settlements in the area and has instituted a system of harsh restrictions for local residents.


Guess, that in a sort of sick and twisted way of reasoning, one could argue that the Palestinians booted out of their homes by the ZOF (ZIONIST OCCUPATION FORCE) should consider themselves lucky... lucky be to alive.

For that is the nature of the Zionist Beast; to steal land and water at the point of an American funded, Israeli made machine gun. Of course, the indigenous Palestinians are given a choice: Move off your land or be killed on the spot.

Yes, the manly men.. and women of the ZOF excel at terrorizing the indigenous Palestinians into either submission, acquiescence or, when the ZOF is feeling frisky, they terrorize the Palestinians unto death.

Like one of the favorite games the ZOF Assassins play with Palestinian children by shooting the children in the head.

Who will stop the ongoing ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians by the demented Zionist regime of Israel? An ethnic cleansing that is turning into the American funded, Israeli mandated PALESTINIAN HOLOCAUST?

Or is the world too caught up in the latest gadgets, superfluous toys and celebrity gossip? While we fiddle with our iPhones, Gaza and the rest of Occupied Palestine burns.
