This little story struck me, I don't know why:
Israeli Land Administration Blocks Roads Leading to Uprooted Village
On June 15, 2005, without prior warning, the Israeli Land Administration (ILA)
blocked the road to the school of the uprooted village of Maska 25 with sandbags.
In 1951 Israeli authorities destroyed the village of Maska leaving only two rooms
of the old school and parts of the old mosque in the village. Two months ago the
local committee for the village renovated the school building and planted bushes
around it. Later, the ILA uprooted the bushes and closed the road to the school.
The ILA spokesperson justified the ILA's actions by saying that the former village
residents "illegally trespassed on the state's property."
