Defense Ministry teach-in against the destruction of Khan Al Akhmar and Susya

Wed., Oct. 11 - come to learn about the endangered communities of Khan Al Akhmar and Susya from residents and lawyers and others.

Defense Minister Liberman has recently vowed to totally destroy the communities of Susya and Khan Al Akhmar in the coming months.

These orders fall squarely in line with the systematic Israeli policies and practices of demolishing unrecognized villages in the West Bank as well as the Negev.

Sukkot calls upon Jews to remember when our ancestors lived in vulnerable shelters while today Palestinians are forced to dwell in similar structures because Israeli officials refuse to grant them building permits and choose to demolish any structure, no matter how fragile.

Tomorrow, October 11th, at 11.00 am, we will gather outside the Defense Ministry, which has the authority to demolish villages in the West Bank, for a teach-in and demonstration of our opposition to Israeli home demolitions. Join us in standing in solidarity with communities facing unjust demolitions!"

The frail Sukkah should sensitize us to the importance of a home, and basic universal right to have a dry roof over one's head. The final day of Sukkot, Hoshana Raba, is a "Yom Kippur Katan." a minor Yom Kippur. It is therefore the perfect time to demand that those in the Ministry to cancel the evil decree against these villages.

In tens of communities around the world there have been.will be Sukkot Against Demolitions activities. This will be an opportunity to learn about the demolition threats facing these communities and to publicly express our opposition to housing demolition!
