Palestinian homes demolished - but this time by Hamas

Using clubs to force residents from their homes, Hamas police evicted residents of homes in Rafah - temporary shacks - built "without the correct permits" before bringing in bulldozers to finish the job of demolishing up to 40 houses on Sunday (http://www.imemc.org/article/58702). Further evictions are expected, reports AP (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37178222/ns/business/).

It's hard to see, at a time when people are attempting to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza - including of course, our own/EJJP cement appeal (http://jfjfp.com/?p=12834)- how Hamas could have shot itself in the foot in a more idiotic yet comprehensive way. Quite apart from demolishing the homes of its own displaced people in order to build a "House of Virtue" (isn't it virtuous to see your citizens have shelter?) it seems to have escaped the attention of Hamas officials that they are aping not just the behaviour, but the threadbare excuses offered by Israelis when they demolish homes in Jerusalem.

Dan, Hamas are an organization committed to the genocide of the Jews. Towards that end, they have no compunction about using their own civilians as human shields in combat. They came to power throwing Fatah members to their deaths from the rooftops. They shot Fatah members in hospital beds during Cast Lead. They celebrate openly at killing innocents, handing out sweets in the street. They rule Gaza with an iron fist, treating women and anyone who doesn't conform to their extremist agenda with brutality. Your surprise at their behaviour demonstrates your extreme and dangerous naivete.

What kind of people do you think you're dealing with?

Mr Judelson employs the Nazi tactics used by Hamas against its own people to berate Israel. Far from being threadbare as Mr Judelson knows the main reasons for which Israel demolishes homes is first because they were the homes of suicide bomber terrorists who have committed an attrocity against innocent citizens be they Jews or Arabs of the State of Israel this has been employed as an attempt to get families of potential suicide bombers to prevent those suicide terrorists from committing their vile acts and has had success. Secondly, in much the same way for example as Local Authorities in the United Kingdom where there has been a breach of planning laws Israeli municipal authorities apply the provisions of similar planning laws to demolish properties built in contravention of those laws whether they blong to Jews or Arabs - this is however done as a last resort as Mr Judelson quite well knows but chooses in his usual disingenuous way to state otherwise. It appears from reports coming out of Gaza that the houses were destroyed by Hamas because they were concealing smuggling tunnels for which the owners were not paying their dues to Hamas. Mr Judelson has the chutzpah to draw a moral equivalency between the Hitlerite givernment of Gaza and that of the democratic State of Israel.

Thanks for publicising this, Dan. We hear so much against Hamas but it so often comes from "ICNBW"(Israel can never be wrong) believers that one treats it with suspicion. Coming from you one can accept it's authentic.
Do you or anyone else know of a Hamas web- or blog-site one could write to about such inhuman and self-destructive policies?

Walinets, that you would wish to engage with the neo-Nazis of Hamas is disgusting in itself. What kind of people do you think you're dealing with?

Did you bother complaining to them when they were murdering hundreds of Jews in the second terror intifada? Only when they evict their fellow Palestinians (not murder them) do you wish to get involved.

You really need to examine yourself.

Walinets, who would have thought that an antisemitic terror organization would act badly?

Staggering.
