So Nir Barkat has dismissed his Deputy Mayor and other council members for disagreeing with his plans. Isn't that more of a dictatortutorial practice than a democratic one? And, if the Israeli government allows this to happen and provides their tacit approval for the continued displacement of the Palestinian people, they too are just as guilty. Isn't it also amazing how they can quickly push through demolition orders to raze Palestinian homes, yet for a Palestinian to be granted a building permit, it virtually never happens or takes years for it to go through. This makes me feel absoluetly sick to my stomach.
