[VID] Street talk: What do you think about home demolitions?

Whenever there is a terrorist attack in Israel, somebody on the political level starts talking about demolishing the terrorist family’s home as punishment and deterrence. Social TV hit the streets of Tel Aviv and asked the public what they think, and put that against Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions chairman Jeff Halper.

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters.

      The deeper issue is why Israelis continue to prefer the misery of all this, on both sides, to simply making a fair deal. The parameters are well known. (Rightists and trolls spare yourself the trouble–the question is rhetorical–your replies are well known and will not be responded to. I have better things to do.)

      If home demolitions are a deterrent, then why has an Israeli’s home never been demolished in such fashion? Israelis are never terrorists, right? They merely kill people by accident. “Oops, there goes another child…”
