If there’s one thing Netanyahu is good at, it’s destroying homes. He did it in Wye, he did it in Hevron, he did it in the Disengagement, and he’s doing it now.
Prime Minister Netanyahu ordered the demolition of the homes of the two terrorists who carried out Tuesday’s attack in Har Nof, the most significant operational step taken in the immediate aftermath of the murders.
Politicians are great at harnessing the emotions of an angry populace. We’re all pissed that murderers killed innocents today. But when we’re all upset, we stop thinking about the dangers of government power. What law allows Netanyahu to simply destroy a house just because a murderer, now dead, used to live there?
And what the hell is that going to solve? If the parents are already glad their sick murderer kids were killed in the act, then what do they care if their house is going to be destroyed as well? You know what’s going to happen now? Here’s what’s going to happen now.
Israel is going to tax you for buying food, transfer that money to the Palestinian Authority, who will then proceed to pay the families of these murderers cash to rebuild their homes. They will also name a road after them.
If Netanyahu weren’t such a pathetic coward, he would think of something more Jewish to do instead of destroy more capital in Israel. He could, for example, move the family out of their home and put it up for auction to a Jew. Though this would not be a libertarian solution, it would be better than destroying a home and much more of a deterrent to these bastards.
The libertarian solution is privatize all infrastructure surrounding the home, including roads and all public buildings, sell them to Jews, and the Jewish owners could then forbid this family of murderers from using the road.
