Israeli forces violently ethnically cleanse Bedouin homes in Beit Hanina

Written by Ali Abunimah – The Electronic Intifada – 11/24/2011

A video taken today by photojournalist Fadi Arouri shows Israeli occupation forces demolishing the homes of Palestinians in the village of Beit Hanina north of occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

In the video, an elderly Palestinian man can be seen admonishing Israeli occupation soldiers as his home is torn down by a bulldozer.

Beit Hanina’s residents have long been targeted for removal by the Israeli occupation, and home demolitions have been frequent on the pretext that homes are built “without permits.” But as is well-documented, the occupation does not give permits to Palestinians to build on their own land, even as Israeli colonies, illegal under international law, sprout everywhere.

Beit Hanina, which straddles the line between Israeli-declared “greater” Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied West Bank, was bissected several years ago by an “apartheid road,” Road 443, built by Israel for the exclusive use of Israelis.

Notably, French-based firm Veolia profits from the ethnic cleansing of residents of Beit Hanina and other Palestinian villages along Road 443, by running bus services for settlers.

  1. “Nazi Israel” what else can I say

  2. Housing for Jews only, roads on which only Jews are allowed to drive, towns, cities, entire districts that are strictly reserved for Jews only, with screening committees to make sure no goyim get in. The Zionist enterprise is so monstrous that future historians will wonder how those genocidal megalomaniacs who thought they were the master race were allowed to get away with it for so long.
