Facebook makes me anxious
Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine is not just history. It’s now.
A Palestinian man starts to demolish his own home to carry out an Israeli court order which ruled that the house was built without a municipality permit, in the east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Shuafat in Palestine.
Israel does not allow Palestinians to build on their own land, while they themselves continue building illegal Jewish settlements on Palestinian land.
Many Palestinians end up demolishing their homes themselves to avoid the high cost of paying for Israeli government bulldozers, or being sent to prison for not being able to pay.
