Unanswered Prayer

Settler Woman in Prayer

Photo Credit: Nati Shohat/Flash 90.

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.
