MEMO | December 29, 2018

Israel demolished 538 Palestinian homes and facilities across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem in 2018, leaving 1,300 Palestinians and 225 children homeless.

A report issued yesterday by the Abdullah Al-Hurani Centre – an affiliate of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) – stressed that these demolitions were carried out in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and other international laws.

In the report, the centre said that Israel “continues its policy of ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem,” pointing out that, in addition to the demolitions, Israel had issued 460 “stop-building orders” during the same period.

Israel’s Civil Administration – which carries out Israeli policy in the occupied West Bank – issued a military order to demolish all the targeted buildings less than 30 days before the demolition was carried out, a move the centre sees as aiming to cut short the possibility of appealing such orders.

The report also documented the demolition or closure of 12 Palestinian schools and kindergartens built by the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank.

  1. All part of “encouraging the goyim to emigrate”.

  2. “these demolitions were carried out in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and other international laws”.

    Quite clearly, “The World’s Policeman”(Self proclaimed…NOT Elected) is highly selective in dealing with Israeli abuse against the Palestinians, ignoring Israel’s offences, but condemning Palestine for any and every “Incident” that occurs(or is said to have occurred by Israel).
    The USA’s credibility has gone through the floor boards when it comes to “2 State problems”. The USA Government is a disgrace to the American People……..
