Bedouin outraged by demolition of mosque

Bedouin representatives said that they had planned to legally challenge the demolition orders, but that they did not have time to submit an appeal because the inspectors arrived very early in the morning.

Civil rights groups were outraged by the demolition yesterday. The Association for Civil Rights in Israel wrote a vehement letter to the priome minister demanding he order an immediate halt to steps against unrecognized villages, until a solution can be found for the villagers.

Is there nothing off limits with this government?

Five Palestinians were also killed today including 65-year-old Kamla Abu Said who was crushed to death when her home was demolished.

Apparantly not. With big USA behind them, Israel can feel free to murder all the Palestinians they want.

Oh, way to go! bravo! Destroying a mosque just because you feel like it is morally equivalent to the Soviet Red Army using an Orthodox Church as a horse stable, or Neo-Nazi goons spraypainting swastikas all over a synagogue.

It's just pure disrespect for religious beliefs.

And Mishei, don't bother to tell me the Interior Ministry will prosecute anybody in this case, because if my experience with "internal investigations" in police forces in Canada are any guide, they'll just slap the offending person on the wrist and transfer him somewhere else where he won't be as noticeably boorish.

I'm outraged, however not surprised. THis is typical Israeli policy. This is what Bush's "Man of Peace" is doing for the effort.
