Dichter orders terrorist's house destroyed

Public security minister Avi Dichter has finally ordered the police to destroy the home of Alaa Abu D'Hein, the terrorist who murdered eight students at Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav in Jerusalem last Thursday night.
Public Security Minister Avi Dichter (Kadima) has ordered the police to destroy the home of the terrorist who murdered eight yeshiva students last Thursday night. The order came after six days of deliberations and legal questions.

The Kadima minister told the Knesset earlier in the day that the law allows tearing down the house only if there is proof that the residence serves as a base for terror. Likud MK Gideon Saar scoffed at the delay, pointing out the terrorist's father also has been arrested and that posters praising the killer adorn the mourning tent at the home. Jordan prohibited the establishment of a mourning tent in its country for the terrorist, but Israel allowed the eastern Jerusalem tent to remain standing.
Now don't all go holding your breaths waiting for this to happen. There will be a Supreme Court appeal and if the court agrees to destroying the house there may be some human shields outside - maybe even some 'international' ones. But hopefully no pancakes this time.

Its revealing the Israeli government is hiding behind excuses rather than doing the right thing. And it took public outrage to pressure the Police Minister to order the terrorist family's house and tent destroyed. There's a complete lack of regard for the fact justice should be seen as well as done. Then again, what can one expect of a government that tells Jews being murdered is a "normal" event and they should just shut up and put up with that when it happens?

I'd like to see the house and tent finally demolished but its a case of too little and too late. The government doesn't really get what expected of it even in the way of elementary human decency.
