relocate them to a garbage dump

This picture so typifies the Palestinian predicament in Palestine. In the foreground is the helpless resident with the Israeli armed forces standing guard as the infrastructure of his community is demolished before his eyes. Might makes right.

The location is Khan Al Ahmar in the West Bank where a Bedouin community is to be evicted and relocated to an area next to the Jerusalem landfill. Yes, a garbage dump. The full story with this picture was published by Foreign Policy magazine on December 23, 2011.

Rabbis for Human Rights has written to the Israeli authorities in protest.
