Subject: BHA: The bulldozers are at it again - update on house demolitions 


Yesterday morning the bulldozers were at it again - destroying houses at the village of 
El-Khader near Bethlehem, leaving homeless the brothers Ibrahim and Imad Sarafandi and 
their families. The destroyed houses are near the ever-expanding settlement of Efrat, 
where 1024 new housing units - for the exclusive use of Israeli settlers - are being 

In East Jerusalem's Beit Hanina neighbourhood, a demolition was scheduled for this 
morning. It was put off -probably because peace-seeking Israelis found out about it in 
advance  and spoiled "the element of surprise"...

Meanwhile, a Barak adviser named Ruth Beyth has started sending out messages explaining 
that "demolitions are carried out only in rare and exceptional cases"... 

Please help keep the pressure by. Here is again the list of government ministers and 
officials who should get as many protests as possible (Please send us a copy of any
