It Doesn't Just Happen in Israel

In early March, a documentary entitled "South Central Farm" was released to the public documenting the life of this former farming community which had become a source of food and a tremendous economic asset to South Central Los Angeles. In 2006, LA authorities destroyed this peaceful community. Although there are many differences, similarities between this community and Gush Katif can also easily be seen. The following youtube links are not part of the "South Central Farm" documentary, but they are still worth viewing.

There is precedent. In 1947, a peaceful Mexican neighborhood in Chavez Ravine was destroyed and its inhabitants expelled in order for Dodger Stadium to be built.
