    What do you recognise as being part of Israel? The 55% of mandate Palestine allocated by the UN partition plan of 1947? The 1949 ceasefire lines which left Israel with 78% of Palestine ( green line ) or the post 1967 ceasefire lines? Neither Israel or the international community has ever formerly said what Israel's border should be because they kept changing as a result of war or peace. The Lachish area where Al-Dawayima 15k SE of Kiriyat Gat DID exist prior to 1948 was captured by Israel in the war of independence so if you recognise it as part of Israel or not depends on where you consider Israel's border to be. Either way nobody has been living in the place since it was depopulated in 1948 and all thats going to be done now is the remains will be bulldozed to make way for new homes for jewish refugees from Gaza. Why do we need to preserve the ruins of long deserted buildings which nobody will ever be returning to when it could be put to a good cause now and providing new homes for the homeless.
