West Bank village under threat

A Palestinian town lives on borrowed time as a settler group lobbies for its demolition.

    An Israeli court will soon decide on the demolition order of Khan al-Ahmar - a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank - so that Israeli homes can be built in its place.
     
    Regavim, a rightist settler group, is lobbying for the move, which would make about about 100 families homeless.
     
    Israeli authorities have already given orders to knock down a school and many shacks in the village.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from Khan al-Ahmar, one of the many Palestinian communities under threat.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
