Evacuating Silwan

Since I’ve come down with some sort of flu or something I’ve ended up staying home tonight and have watched the 60 Minutes segment on Silwan.  The guy Leslie Stahl interviewed who defended the evacuation of Palestinians and justified their displacement is pure downright wicked.

Stahl is right to suggest that they aren’t just digging in the City of David, they’re digging in.  Astonishingly, the talking heads on the Jewish side seem utterly unconcerned for the Palestinians they are uprooting all in the search for some putative ‘history’ in the city.  Astonishingly… well, maybe not.  The fact is, Zionists and Christian Zionists have never cared about the Palestinians or about what happens to them when Israelis ‘dig in’ and evict.

If you missed it, you can still check it out here.
