Unanswered Prayer

Settler Woman in Prayer

A woman stand in prayer atop her home in Ma’aleh Rehavam.

On Wednesday, the government destroyed 11 buildings in Ma’aleh Rehavam, including a school and homes – despite both the settler’s proof of ownership, and a court decision to delay the destruction until further clarification.

It reminds me of the building in Hebron, Beit HaMachpelah, legally purchased by Jews, but forcibly evacuated by the government which rfused to accept that Jews bought the property – until faced with incontrovertible evidence, and even then, it only begrudgingly let the Jewish owners back in, 2 years later.

There’s something wrong when things like this happen in the State of Israel.

(In case you’re wondering, the rocks on the roof help keep the aluminum sheets down against the wind, they’re not for throwing.)
