Gerusalemme, 5 maggio 2015, Nena News – Yehuda Shaul è indignato. Si affanna a denunciare le violazioni del diritto umanitario e delle convenzioni internazionali il fondatore di Breaking the Silence, l’ong israeliana che, grazie alle testimonianze di soldati e ufficiali disposti a “rompere il silenzio”, squarcia il velo delle motivazioni ufficiali delle operazioni militari contro Gaza e nel resto dei Territori palestinesi occupati.

The justices have allowed the state to demolish these two Palestinian communities, which are just 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) apart, but are separated by Israel’s 1967 border, the Green Line. On May 4, Justice Noam Sohlberg allowed the state, the Israel Defense Forces and the IDF Civil Administration to demolish Sussia’s tents, tin shacks and livestock pens as they see fit. The community petitioned against the Civil Administration’s decision to reject the master plan it had prepared, and what would be more natural than to stop home demolitions while the hearing of its case was still going on? But without a hearing, Sohlberg rejected the request filed by the community’s representatives – lawyers of Rabbis for Human Rights – for an interim injunction suspending implementation of demolition orders.

They are living for 60 years in the location the state allotted to them. How can you argue once again that the expulsion is taking place during a war, and roll your eyes and say that in war there are inevitably refugees? How can you blame the Arab leaders for supposedly calling on the village residents to leave until they destroy the Zionist entity, and how can it be said that the residents of Umm al-Hiran didn’t want Jews near them, so they deserve to be evacuated? After all, the village residents are willing to live with the Jews.
