The article discusses the Israeli policy of demolishing Palestinian homes. The policy of house demolitions is part of an overall Israeli policy of displacing Palestinians from the Occupied Territories. It has stood at the center of Israel's approach to its claimed Arab problem, and is at the heart of the broad process of displacement. The process has been since carried across the Green Line into the occupied territories of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza.
