Many Gaza Evacuees still homeless

From WorldNetDaily...

An American fact-finding commission here to determine the status of Gaza's former Jewish residents was shocked to learn most have not yet received compensation packages from the Israeli government and have been homeless the past few weeks, with many living in hotels, tent cities and school dormitories.

In spite of media reports, many former residents say they have not been provided with government supplied social workers and medical care, and have been relying for food and in some cases clothing on volunteer efforts from local populations.

"I was stunned when I saw how former Gaza residents are living," Pesach Lerner, commission head, told WND. Lerner is executive vice president of the National Council of Young Israel, a large American synagogue organization. "The perceptions I had and American Jews in general likely have about the status of the refugees was completely shattered when I saw things for myself."

It is frustrating to see the Israel government behaving as if God never gave the land to them.

Meanwhile in Gaza...

Palestinians set fire to at least four synagogues in evacuated Gaza Strip settlements early Monday, a day after the cabinet reversed an earlier decision and said Israel Defense Forces should withdraw without demolishing the synagogues.

The Palestinians torched synagogues in Kfar Darom, Morag, Netzarim and Neveh Dekalim....

Thousands of celebrating Palestinians swamped the evacuated settlement of Neveh Dekalim early Monday just after Israel Defense Forces soldiers withdrew, setting fire to a building that just last month served as a rabbinical college.

There were similar scenes throughout Gaza as Palestinians headed straight for empty synagogues Israel left intact.
