Intentional Displacement

Abby Zimet

Rachel Corrie is gone. Israel's deliberate, senseless, merciless destruction of Palestinian homes goes on apace - sometimes extending to homes built by international organizations appalled by Israeli actions. Last year saw over a thousand people, almost twice the number for 2010, made homeless, part of a decades-long process of what the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) calls an intentional "policy of displacement." Which is a war crime. Imagine, for a moment, it happening to you. Photos tell the tale.


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
