Palestinian residents in the West Bank town of Susiya are being told to make room for Israeli settlers; in fact, Israeli officials have actually expressed a desire for Susiya’s inhabitants to destroy their own homes (perhaps so Israel can deny having done it?). Both the European Union and the U.S. have already voiced their condemnations, but the bulldozing seems imminent. The State Department stated that destruction of Susiya “would be harmful and provocative.” Not illegal, not disturbingly immoral, but merely “harmful” and “provocative.” Israel maintains that the Palestinians are living in Susiya without a permit; this is despite evidence that Susiya residents have lived on and farmed the land since the 1830s. Already squeezed between two Israeli settlements, Palestinians in Susiya have been blocked from obtaining proper utilities – unlike their Israeli neighbors, who have running water and electricity. Inhabitants of Susiya have already seen their town demolished four times in the last 35 years, let's not let them see their homes destroyed a fifth time. We support the efforts by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and others in Congress to help save Susiya.
