Why Does Israel Demolish Houses?
Regarding “Why Does Israel Demolish Houses After Terrorist Attacks?” (WJW, Feb. 23):
Ron Kampeas has written a very informative piece about a decades-long Israeli government policy that demolishes the homes of Palestinian families of suspects who kill Israelis in terrorist attacks. Beyond being a form of collective punishment, Israeli leaders should seriously consider how such an action may impact the Palestinian Authority’s incitement campaign in their early childhood education programs. A Palestinian child whose family’s home has been destroyed by the Israeli government can become indoctrinated to believe that all Israelis and Jews intend to harm all Palestinians and Muslims.
