TUBAS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday demolished a mosque in the village of Khirbet Yarza in the northern West Bank, a local official said.

Head of Al-Malha village council Aref Daraghma told Ma’an that Israeli bulldozers and civil administration officials demolished the mosque, which is less than 60 square meters.

This is the third time in seven months that the mosque has been demolished, Daraghma said.

In addition to the mosque, several Bedouin structures were demolished on the pretext that they were built without permits, he added.

From 2000 to 2007, the Civil Administration approved 5 percent of the applications for building permits submitted by Palestinians in Area C. The total number of building permits issued to Palestinians during these seven years was 91, an average of 13 building permits per annum, reports Bimkom, an Israeli organization for planning rights.

According to the UN agency OCHA, in the first six months of 2011 Israeli authorities demolished 342 Palestinian-owned structures in Area C, including 125 residential structures, displacing a total of 656 Palestinians, including 351 children -- almost five times as many demolitions and people displaced as during the first half of 2010.

BUILDING a Jewish settlement, Bedouin structure, house, synagogue, or mosque ON DISPUTED LAND IS FOOLISH*, since several were demolished, and others will be, whether "on the pretext that they were built without permits", or some other reason !!

Paying good money to build a structure, that will never be completed or used, and also knowing that afterwards you will be billed more good money to knock it down too ???
- IT DOES NOT GET MORE FOOLISH THAN THAT !!!

To Permits, pretexts...#1: 'IT DOES NOT GET MORE FOOLISH THAN THAT !!!' Bothers you, doesn't it? That was the principle behind Gandhi's 'foolishness.' Force the oppressor (that would be you) to confront the injustice of his own actions.

There is disputed land in the area. The land that Israel sits on is disputed, as Israel daily delegitimises itself. Israel is a fascist rogue state which needs to be dissolved. As the people there are mostly Europeans, and mostly hold dual nationality they can leave with little difficulty, and leave the land they have stolen.

After this demolition do you really think the settlers which torched an Israeli Mosque are going to be punished? Israel is criminal. It is exactly like Nazi's. Israel is trying to stay within the international tolerance for inhumanity. Unfortunately the international tolerance for inhumanity is pretty high.

4) Yeah Wrong

You just burned Joseph's tomb for the second time,
let's not forget the more than 50,000 Jewish graves you destroyed
on the Mount of Olives, or your own cemetery in Jaffa, which you paved over to put a Souk on the space
