Demolishing lives in the West Bank and Israel

From my experience of living in Israel for 6 years, I observed that there were many illegal buildings in Arab Villages, including a vast range 6 story mansions and palaces, not because they could not get Israeli approval, but because they didn't seek it. The Israeli government tended to turn a blind eye, and the town and villages tended to grow organically, sadly often without proper planning or the necessary infrastructure. The area you write about is politically sensitive and you make no mention of the empty newly built Palestinian town in the same area as their attempt to declare land ownership. Always 2 sides to the story as Dan said.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
