QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday demolished a home and a barn in the Bedouin village Arab Abu Farda south of Qalqiliya, locals said.

The home and barn of Abdul Qader Farda were leveled to the ground, village council president Salem Abu Farda told Ma'an.

The local official said officers from Israel's Civil Administration claimed to have notified Qader Farda that his home would be demolished. But he never received any notices, the council president said.

Abu Farda said Israeli authorities were trying to force the local population from the area to expand the nearby Jewish-only Alfe Menashe settlement.

He urged human rights groups to visit the area, and said residents would not leave their land.

A spokesman for Israel's Civil Administration said "the dismmantling of the structre [was] a regular law enforcment activity."

He said the family had been given a stop work order and then a demolition order in March 2010. The family, according to the official, "have hired a lawyer that sent us a letter, which means they were aware of the orders being given."

Whether you call it an illegal settlement, according to international law, or
whether you call it "the home and barn of Abdul Qader Farda",
IT IS STILL JUST A LAND GRAB,
AND DEMOLITION IS THE LAW OF THE LAND,
FOR BOTH JEW AND ARAB ALIKE !!!!!

To Tobias #1 ' DEMOLITION IS THE LAW OF THE LAND, FOR BOTH JEW AND ARAB ALIKE !!!!!' Close. The law is imposed by the Jews, but it is for the Arabs. Of course, it's not really 'law,' since the authority imposing it has no legitimacy. Were Nazi confiscation orders in Poland 'law'?
