Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.
-Amy Goodman

U.N.: Israeli Govt. Triples Rate of Demolitions of Palestinian Homes

HeadlineApr 08, 2016

This comes as the United Nations says the Israeli government has tripled the number of demolitions of Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank over the past three months. The data shows a monthly average of 165 home demolitions since January. On Thursday, Hussein Kaabneh spoke out after Israeli authorities demolished his home in a village near Jericho.

Hussein Kaabneh: “At 9:00 in the morning, I was surprised by the (Israeli) police and the army. They came to demolish the structures. So I was very mad. I asked them, 'Why do you want to demolish it?' I did not get a warning or anything. And he told me, 'You are not legal.'”
