It ain't easy to be a Jew, even a dead one

With much fanfare, Barak promised to find a solution to prevent the eviction of Eliraz Peretz’s family. The major was killed in Gaza, and the court ordered that his house, one of many unauthorized structures in the West Bank, be demolished.

Barak’s position is decidedly immoral. If there is rule of law, then the state has to demolish that house, though it may pay a grant to enable Peretz’s family to buy a new house. Or the ‘illegal’ building can be issued a construction permit.

But more importantly, why is Barak concerned about the court’s demolition order? Police ignore thousands of such court orders against illegal Arab houses. But it is different when courts target Jews.
