When Israelis want to build 1,600 apartments on land owned by Jews in the Jewish capital, the world is outraged. But when Palestinians seize other Palestinians’ homes by force, well . . . it’s the symphony of crickets chirping.
Check out what happened to A’lyia Aweida, when she left her home to take care of her sick father-in-law. And this was reported by the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency, so that should tell you something. Life under terrorist group HAMAS–and under most Islamic regimes–makes life under the old Soviet Union look like a fantasy paradise. (Thanks, IMRA–Independent Media Research & Analysis).
Gaza – A family apartment was seized and handed over to de facto government police after its owner temporarily moved out of the home to take care of her sick father-in law.
A’lyia Aweida said she returned to the apartment on 3 April to collect some belongings, only to find a de facto government police officer, who she identified only by his initials, RAH, and his wife living in her home.
“What right and by what religion does he feel permission to take over my home and my belongings?” Aweida asked, “How can he himself accept to live in a home where the things are not his? How does he sleep on a bed he knows was taken by force?”
“By what religion”? Islam, that’s the religion.
The first hint of the problem, Aweida said reflecting on the matter, came months before, when a de facto government ministry of the interior official asked her to provide papers showing that her family in fact owned the home.
“Paper”? Hmmm . . . where is Barack Obama denouncing this requirement of showing papers? I guess when Islamic thugs do it, it’s okay.
It was the end of January, and Aweida had already moved in with her father at the time, who was released from the Intensive Care unit at Gaza City’s Ash-Shifa Hospital where he was being treated for late-stage cancer.
“His condition forces him to remain in bed,” she explained, noting her family had moved in to her father’s home in order to stay together and help care for him.
So, the apartment in the upscale neighborhood of Ar-Rimal, in the Golden Beach Tower of the Sheikh Ijlin block was left locked, with Aweida and her husband periodically checking in or gathering necessary belongings for themselves or their children.
It was a Ministry of the Interior official, who Aweida identified by his initials, AA. “He asked for papers proving we owned the home, and said he believed that the apartment was in fact owned by the Palestinian Authority,” she said.
She said she showed him the deeds, that the apartment was owned by her husband Sa’eed Aweida. “We showed them all of the papers that prove that the apartment is privately owned by the Aweida family and that is it not owned by the Palestinian Authority.”
Aweida went to the de facto government’s Ministry of the Interior to speak with under secretary of the ministry Kamel Madi. “We did not find him in, and instead met with a man who said he was the head of Madi’s office. He told us the apartment was seized on account of an embezzlement charge against Said Aweida, and that the decision was taken by the undersecretary of the ministry,” she said.
When the family requested a copy of the decision to confiscate the department, they were told to return the following week. There was no document ready when they returned, and after several inquiries, found that there “was no such decision concerning our issue,” Aweida explained.
Yup, let’s hear it for a Palestinian state. This is what life is like under Islamic rule everywhere around the world. They are thugs and they seize your property and take away your rights at will. Now we know why many Palestinians say off the record that they secretly wish to remain under Israeli rule, where they have freedom, safety, and a better life that they won’t get under HAMAS or Muslim rule anywhere else.
Exit Question: Since they spoke out, how much longer do you give the Aweida family to live? I predict HAMAS will pick one of them off soon enough. That’s how they rule. That’s how they stay in power. All Muslim regimes. It’s the “religion of peace,” after all. And they have a reputation to maintain.
