The Isreali bulldozers are still undertaking numerous demolitions in Palestine. In this week alone,   four family homes, four Bedouin tents containing 40 people, a mosque, a public meeting house, a restaurant, a shop, a car wash, a bee farm owned by a women's co operative, a sheep farm, numerous barns,  an irrigation pond and a plant nursery have all been smashed to pieces. And those are just the ones where reports are reaching the West.

The owners and workers on these properties often own the land themselves, and have paperwork to prove their right to be there and use the space. It doesn't seem to matter to the Israeli army however, who are turning up with bulldozers without prior warning or giving people time to produce paperwork on their arrival. Throughout the Arab world, as struggles continue for autonomy and freedom from dictatorial rule, in Israel and Palestine the fight seems to rage even harder, and unnoticed by the western media.
