Disgraceful Israel

One of the claims made by Israeli supporters when they steal Palestinian land is that it is to provide a buffer between the Hamas rockets and Israeli cities.
That argument falls apart when you consider no rockets have been fired from the West Bank but still the land grab goes on and as the United Nations have reported, has actually increased.  
The UN's Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) show that there have been an average of 165 demolitions a month since January.
In February alone, 235 buildings were taken down, and the UN agency has claimed people are being driven from the land as a result.
The Israeli military, which has occupied the West Bank for half a century, claims it carries out the demolitions because the structures are illegal and do not have the necessary planning permits, permits that the UN say are 'virtually impossible' for Palestinians to get the approval they need, only 1.5% of applications from 2010 to 2014 being granted.
All this on Palestinians own land remember...and the World pathetically stays quiet as the disgraceful genocide continues and the Palestinians suffering goes on.

Genocide: Violent crimes committed against groups with the intent to destroy the existence of the group. 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Yep, i think genocide fits the bill.

I disagree, but what is new about that. The Palestinians are just as guilty, they just aren't as effective.

Guilty of what exactly? Seizing Israeli land, bulldozing their homes, military incursions into Israel, holding over 9000 Israeli's in their prisons including children, destroy Israeli farms and businesses, bomb them on a regular basis, builds a monstrous wall to incarcerate half a nation, collect and withold their tax?
If you think they are equally guilty you have not been paying attention.

Oh, I would say they would eliminate Israel if they could. They just can't.

I imagine after 65 years of what they have been doing, their is not much love there from the people they have been killing.
