Israel Destroys Palestinian Homes: The largest Israeli attack in recent times has taken place in Gaza. While the attention of the world is riveted on Iraq–the Abu Ghraib prison abuse and the retaliatory beheading of an American–the Jews are destroying Palestinian homes in Gaza. Dwellings are hit by missiles and military armoury, in what the Israelis call an attack on militants. But all they have succeeded in doing is killing innocent men, women and children.
The Israelis claim to the land of Palestine is based on their history. Exiled by the Romans 2,000 years ago in 586BC, they returned in 1948. Will there ever be peace in the Middle East? Can the United Nations stop the carnage? Probably not, but the Jews must be stopped from thinking that they can walk into a room and claim a commode that was carved by a great-great-great grandfather on their great-great grandmother’s side as their own.
