Israeli Evictions of Palestinians from Their Homes
There is an uncomfortable similarity between current events in East Jerusalem and what transpired throughout Europe during WWII. Many Israeli “activist” citizens see the injustice and are standing proudly against it—a testament that some learn lessons, but not all. President Obama is visiting Israel very shortly, and I hope that he addresses this issue directly with our allies.
I could write novels on the background and analysis of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict—as many have—but I think investing 25 minutes to watch the videos above is much more effective. More effective in getting to the heart of the conflict; that Israelis believe they have a legal right to all the land in Jerusalem, including predominately Palestinian East Jerusalem, because the 2000 year old Bible says it is their land.
Is this sufficient grounds to forcibly remove people from their homes and immediately install “settlers” to take their places? REALLY? I urge all to watch the videos (“Playlist” to see all) in their entirety, decide for yourselves, and share your thoughts.
