UN: some 660 demolished houses and more than 1100 Palestinian homeless in 2012

London, January, 2012

The Israeli demolition of the Palestinian houses and other buildings in 2011 has resulted in displacing more than 1100 citizens, UN report said Saturday morning.

UN demanded a direct halt of such activities of the Israeli occupation and asked it to bear the responsibility of protecting the Palestinian citizens.

“Israel as the Occupying Power has a fundamental responsibility to protect the Palestinian civilian population under its control and to ensure their dignity and well‐being,” Maxwell Gaylard, the UN humanitarian coordinator in the occupied Palestine, said.

“The current policy and practice of demolitions cause extensive human suffering and should end,” Mr Gaylard added.
He also criticised the policy of destroying the Palestinian homes and their livelihood and said that increases their misery. He confirmed that all those actions are not acceptable.

“The wholesale destruction of their homes and livelihoods is not consistent with that responsibility and humanitarian ideals. The current policy and practice of demolitions cause extensive human suffering and should end,” he said.

The report mentioned: “For the year 2011, some 622 homes and livelihood structures belonging to Palestinian families were similarly destroyed, forcibly displacing almost 1,100 people, over half of them children, and compromising the livelihoods of several thousand more.”

Mr Gaylard noted that these figures represent a dramatic increase compared with previous years, and that a much greater number, in the tens of thousands, remain under threat of dispossession, demolition and displacement.

Palestinians see a day of happiness

London, December 12, 2011
For a long time, the Palestinians have not seen a day of happiness of or delight. They have been living the hardships of life, the suffering of vagrancy and diaspora, depravity of simple rights and being killed or imprisoned by the Israeli intruders.

This is a very hard and touching, not only because it is neglected by the international community, but also because it is legalised by it.

When the British occupation started, it considered itself the owner of the land of Palestine and promised Jews to establish a national state for them in it. During the time of the British occupation, it imprisoned, killed Palestinians and deprived them from education.

When the Jews established their state in 1948 on the corpses of thousands of Palestinians, the USA recognised it just 11 minutes later, and then the UN and other EU countries.

OK, but that was not the whole story which has uncounted number of phases. Every couples of years, the Israelis carry out barbaric massacres against Palestinians. They kill children, youths and elders. The destroy homes and factories and uproot trees.

They imprison thousands men and women, and the world must not forget the mother who has got a baby in the prison hospital while being handcuffed.

Tears of reunion happiness

This is not the whole story, too. The story started only when the poor Palestinians tried to make a kind of balanced reaction and kidnapped an Israeli soldier from his tank. They, from the first minute, said that they want to free the oppressed Palestinian prisoners, but the Israelis refused.

The whole world stood on one feet then and asked the Palestinians to free the Israeli soldier and when the Palestinians refused, the entire world legalised a strict Israeli siege against Palestinians. Hundreds of Palestinian children and patients died and the world is not silent but clapping to the Israelis.

The Israeli carried out a 23 day war against the Gaza Strip aiming to free the Israeli soldier and killed more than 1500 residents, injured more than 5000, destroyed hundreds of factories and mosques and spoiled water and sewage infrastructure. At the end, the whole world blamed Palestinians and asked them also to release the Israeli soldier.

Reunion after long time behind the Israeli  bars

I think that the entire world forgot that there are thousands of Palestinian prisoners behind the Israeli bars. OK, no problem, let the Palestinians themselves only know and think by their own with the way they can free them, and they are going to do as what they have done just yesterday.
