          Israel has been destroying the family homes of anyone who has fought back for years. It’s a policy they copied off the British when they had the mandate. They used to blow them up too. Often the Israelis just bulldoze them. This of course creates more homeless people and more angry young Palestinians, more for them to shoot & lock up, and this creates more angry young Palestinians ….

            Chronology:

            Palestinians murder Jews – get shot / arrested / escape
            If violence escalates or gets out of hand, Israel announces preventative measures including destruction of homes housing terrorists.
            Homes are destroyed where terrorism continues.

            This is a situation that has evolved over a lengthy period of time. The Palestinians are living in worse and worse conditions due to their own actions leading to worse and worse outcomes.

            Whenever sanctions and blockades are eased the violence erupts again, leading to more restrictions being put in place.

            Until Hamas is overthrown and the powerbrokers among the Palestinians get serious about a 2 state solution with reparations but no right of return, there is nothing that will help the situation.

    listening to ZB last evening; budget
    It really sounds like some Tories believe; a Lab-led Govt. can do nothing, that measures up to the ‘fantasy island’ (tax-cuts, more tax-cuts, trickle down B-S) that many seem to think they lived on, under Natl !

    “WAKE UP folks, its 21st century.”.. 😀
