Residents: Mosque destroyed in Palestinian village

A mosque and other structures were demolished by bulldozers in a Palestinian village in the West Bank early Thursday, according to village residents.

The Israeli Civil Administration said the demolished structures did not have "the required permits in a fire area, risking the lives of the population."

Residents of the village of Khirbet Yarza said they awoke Thursday to the sounds of bulldozers as Israeli personnel moved into the area. A mosque, seven metal structures, a tent and three animal sheds were demolished, residents said.

"Almost 200 military personal and 20 military jeeps and three bulldozers arrived this morning around 5:30 to the village and started demolishing structures and the village's sole mosque," Ahmad Abu Sa'ed, a Palestinian official and resident of the area, told CNN.

The village is home to some 200 Palestinians who largely depend on livestock and farming for their livings, he said.

    Oh yes Mehdi General Dr. Bad you are so right about the Jews, Americans, Arabs, and the who***!s. They don't understand you Mehdi. Your doctor wants to know more. He will listen to you. He wants you to call him so that he can send two of his friends to go pick you up. Ok? So give him a call with the little phone they gave you.

    Mehdi General Dr. Bad. You had been doing so well. What happened? OK, now go to your pouch. Find the little bottle with the purple top. Take 2 of those prescribed pills. Then you will not feel like everybody is against you and you will feel like people are your friends. OK? In the meantime, there are two of my friends that will take you back where you belong, ok Mehdi? Good job, you will earn more points.

    Dr.Bad? You, you love me?... Tell me where you are and I will come see you immediately. My husband doesn't get me. I feel like the typical unappreciated trophy wife. 🙁

    I would sound the "all clear", but I don't think Dr.Bad is bright enough to take a hint.

    Now he's going into what resembles a kitchen. There's a dead cat stuck to the floor in the corner. He doesn't need to use the handle on the refrigerator won't shut all the way. As he opens the door, several flies escaoe and head straight for the cat. It's almost like a ritual, except this time he's having a more difficult time picking the fuzzball out of his belly-button. His white cotton briefs are like two sizes too big. Probably to accentuate his skidmarks. Tune in next time for lumpy milk.
