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.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
