Let's Not Forget The Ones Constantly Under Siege in Palestine


In Occupied Palestine, where Israeli sponsored terror is a constant fact of life.

We're starting to find out what it's like to live under a tyrannical government, one that spies on us 24/7 and threatens us with more intrusions. That type of state-sponsored terror is part of every day life in Occupied Palestine.

Along with losing your home to American bought bulldozers.

0 Israeli homes have been demolished by Palestinians, and over 27,000 Palestinian homes have been demolished by Israel since 1967.


Statistics Source: The Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions estimates that over 27,000 houses have been demolished in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza since 1967 (as of July 28, 2012). According to ICAHD:

"Since 1967, about 27,000 Palestinian homes and other structures (livestock pens and fencing for example) crucial for a family’s livelihood, have been demolished in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), including East Jerusalem. It is impossible to know how many homes exactly because the Israeli authorities only report on the demolition of “structures,” which may be homes or may be other structures. When a seven-story apartment building is demolished containing more than 20 housing units, that is considered only one demolition."

In addition to the homes demolished by Israel, thousands of Palestinian homes have been destroyed or significantly damaged by Israeli bombing and shelling. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports that during Israel's Operation 'Cast Lead' assault on Gaza from Decemeber 27, 2008 to January 18, 2009,

"3,540 homes were destroyed in the course of the hostilities, 2,870 homes were severely damaged and 52,900 homes sustained minor damage. Some 2,618 homes destroyed or damaged beyond repair during 'Cast Lead' await rebuilding, primarily due to the blockade and restrictions on the entry of construction materials through the Kerem Shalom crossing. "

While Palestinians have not demolished any Israeli homes, there is one known case of a Palestinian destroying an Israeli home in an explosion.
While the Zionist MSM keeps pumping out sewerage into American homes, ramping up the fear factor, those in Occupied Palestine live the fear.
