'Thousands' of Israeli Arab homes threatened with demolition

A man walks amidst the rubble of a house belonging to an Arab-Israeli family that was demolished by municipality workers in Lod's Arab Dahamshe neighborhood, 15 kms east of Tel Aviv, on April 15, 2015Ramle (Israel) (AFP) – “Where will we go,” asks eight-year-old Tiba Qeren, saying goodbye to the family home that, like those of many other Israeli Arabs, is condemned to demolition for failing to meet planning rules. “I know that they are going to destroy our home as they have others in Ramle,” the mixed Arab and Jewish town where they live, about 18 kilometres (11 miles) from Tel Aviv. The Israeli Arab community has its roots in the 160,000 Palestinians who stayed on their land after the creation of Israel in 1948. Israeli Arab rights group Adalah says only 4.6 percent of new homes built in Israel are in Arab towns and villages although Arabs make up 20 percent of the population.
