50 SWAT policemen carry out important and dangerous mission

50 SWAT policemen were sent on an important and dangerous mission yesterday in Israel. They were sent to destroy the concrete foundation for a porch that had been poured by an American immigrant family in the City of Efrat on which their son's Bar Mitzva was to be held. I kid you not.
Some 50 special Yassam unit policemen burst into a yard in Efrat Wednesday morning and destroyed a patio that had been built in violation of the construction freeze.

The cement for the patio, 25 meters square and 3 centimeters thick, was poured by a family of new immigrants for the purpose of hosting their son’s Bar Mitzvah there. The family was not at home at the time of the demolition, which involved a large tractor. It occurred in the Dekel neighborhood, in central Efrat.

Efrat’s Deputy Mayor Josh Adler was briefly detained during the course of the demolition, after he attempted to stand in front of the tractor.

Mayor Oded Ravivi told Arutz-7 what transpired: “When we saw such a large force of policemen bursting into the town, we feared that a security incident was underway, so we rushed to the site together with them. But we soon understood that it was nothing more than a concrete square. It doesn’t look at all like a construction start or anything that should bother anyone – but it turns out that despite the fact that we have enemies from right and left and from up and down, our security forces have nothing better to do than destroy a patio.”
Our tax shekels at work, fellow Israelis. If they keep using 50 policemen to destroy every porch in Judea and Samaria look for our tax freedom day to move back into August where it used to be - at least.

Building a porch on one's home was supposed to be exempt from the construction freeze. What kind of country has Israel become that it is considered dangerous to make improvements to existing property? We are not talking about new construction, just additions to existing structures. And is adding a room to a home considered a violation, too? The country has gone absolutely mad going after Jews for such ridiculous trivialities which harm no one!

Totally insane! Bibi should never have agreed to a freeze. Such stupidity.

The settlement freeze is almost halfway over, according to my calculations.

Stasi thugs.

Justice will prevail. Their day - and that of their superiors - will come.
