The High Cost of Gaza Housing by Clifford May

In the Media:

"Only a radical would argue that Israel should not have such Arab citizens. And yet what passes for the moderate view holds that a future Palestinian state must be Judenrein � ethnically cleansed of Jews. Indeed, even �moderate� Jordan has a constitutional provision specifically prohibiting Jews from becoming citizens

It is within this context that Israeli and Palestinian leaders have now agreed to bulldoze those red-roofed, middle-class houses in Gaza. Will this action pave the way � almost literally � toward peace between Israel and a Palestinian state? Or will it represent just the destruction of one additional Jewish community, a reminder of the past, an omen for the future? No one can really say, least of all the Israeli and Palestinian officials who have agreed on this plan � and not much else. "
