Video: Israel demolishes every home in West Bank Bedouin village

Israeli forces have demolished every home in the Bedouin village of Khirbet Taha in the northern West Bank district of Nablus during three separate demolitions since the start of the year.

Unlike most Bedouin villages, the residents in Khirbet Taha own their own land. However that land falls in Area C, territory in the occupied West Bank under full Israeli control.

The village’s only school was also destroyed, leaving children to study in a dilapidated 100-year-old mosque — the only structure left standing in the village.

According the United Nations, Israel has demolished half as many Palestinian buildings in the first few months of 2016, as they had in all of 2015. In February alone, the UN found that more Palestinians homes were destroyed than any other month since 2009, when the organization began its documentation.

Let’s be clear, every home in Kfar Darom was destroyed on no one on this website batted an eye. Who will help to rebuild Homesh?

The governor of Connecticut just received the JFK “Profile in Courage” award for taking in Syrian refugees. http://www.courant.com/opinion/editorials/hc-ed-governor-malloy-was-courageous-indeed-on-syrian-refugees-20160404-story.html

I wonder when an American politician will propose taking in Palestinian refugees? The U.S. is complicit in creating their need for a refuge; surely justice demands that we provide them a new place to live.
