I know the people of Bir al Maksur, they are good people and good neighbors. They live just a few kilometers from my yishuv. Many if not most of the village's men are IDF veterans. Their shepherds graze their goats and cattle on our land, some of their families are running businesses on our yishuv. Good people, good neighbors. So, what the bloody hell is the mo'atza doing knocking down this gentleman's house? It seems to be all a bureaucratic technicality. Don't the bureaucratic pencil pushers have anything better to do with their time than turn friends into enemies?
