Palestinian homes destroyed in Gaza

Monday, May 17, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff  

When Israel knocks down the homes of Palestinian terrorists or demolishes Arab buildings constructed illegally in Jerusalem, the international community has a field day condemning the actions of the Jewish state.

But when Hamas is the one operating the bulldozers, it seems the world has little problem with firm enforcement of the law.

The Associated Press reports that on Sunday, Hamas security forces demolished dozens of illegally built homes in the southern Gaza town of Rafah. Hamas officials said the buildings were constructed without proper permits on government-owned land.

Local Palestinians said they were furious that their own government would enforce the law in the same manner as the Israelis.

There was no reaction to the newly homeless Palestinians from the United Nations.
