Home demolitions

I'm always looking for commonalities between Israelis and Palestinians. In strange places. Ironically, both Israeli families and Palestinians could find commonalities in that their homes can be destroyed if built without permits. I wonder if the extremist Federman and Tor families now sympathize with Arabs who also have their homes destroyed in the same fashion theirs was. Oddly, I sympathize with both. It must be devastating, even if I don't agree with the Federman/Tor views, to lose everything you own. Same with the Arab families. It's awful to be made homeless.
