Security forces demolish Jewish family's *home - without warning:
They threw a family with small children onto the street
Israel Police and Border Police forces arrived on Monday with Civil Administration officials at the Binyamin-region Yishuv Hada'at Farm. According to residents, the forces destroyed a family's home and acted towards the family with violence, using tear gas against those who attempted to protest the destruction.
Otzma Yehudit CEO Tzvi Sukkot, who was at the scene, suffered both from the tear gas as well as from beatings he received from the police. Sukkot was transferred for medical treatment.
Yishuv Hada'at resident and Otzma Yehudit activist Meir Bartler said,
"The security forces used severe violence. It's a complete injustice to throw a family with babies out of their home on a winter day, and we're protesting that as well. This situation cannot continue, and the Israeli government and all parties are completely responsible for the despicable act which was done here today."
"We will no longer tolerate activities like this, and we call on the public to protest.”
*Footnote: Though Israel regularly destroys legal Jewish homes and other buildings, rarely is the Arab sector's rampant illegal building, road construction, and land takeovers even noticed. Even more rarely are the structures ordered demolished, and when they are, the court will often intervene and cancel the demolition.
Jews who legally buy homes may be forced out of their homes if Arabs protest the transaction, and Arabs are allowed to build illegally on privately-owned Jewish land.

# Hypocrisy: Hypocrisy is the contrivance of a false appearance of virtue or goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations, especially with respect to religious and moral beliefs; hence in a general sense, hypocrisy may involve dissimulation, pretense, or a sham. Hypocrisy is the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another.
Who not to vote for:
Yair Lapid: Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid says he's willing to sacrifice 'isolated settlements' in exchange for Jerusalem, settlement blocs. [Oh, really Yair, its not yours to give away. I think Rashi knows better than you:
There will be a time when the nations of the world will claim that Israel “stole the Land of Israel”. It belongs to others, not to the Jewish People (does this sound familiar?) God tells the story of creation first to establish the fact that the ENTIRE WORLD belongs to God. And only He has the right to apportion the Holy Land. We see very clearly, through the stories of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and Moses that the Land of Israel was promised as the exclusive inheritance for the Nation of Israel. Period. The Land belongs to the Jewish People/Nation, ALL OF US!
I think the UN needs to hear this (again) also.
