Mideast Peace? Bulldozed Pieces

Israel: New Peak in Arbitrary Razing of Palestinian Homes | Human Rights Watch: "Israeli authorities destroyed 141 Palestinian homes and other buildings in July 2010, the largest number in any month since at least 2005, and have already carried out dozens of demolitions in August.

'While Israel is demolishing more and more Palestinian homes, it continues to subsidize the Jewish settlements nearby,' said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. 'Israel has flouted international law not only by supporting settlements on occupied territory, but also by erasing longstanding Palestinian communities next door.'"

The talks haven't started, but the grounds for failure are in progress. House by house, village by village.
