Description A Palestinian man is comforted by his sons as he walks through the rubble of his home near Jerusalem, hours after it was demolished by Israeli authorities. This was the second time in four years his home had been destroyed. Both times were on account of having built without a permit -- a permit he tried to obtain but was denied. The home is in the West Bank town of Anata, on the outskirts of Jerusalem behind Mount Scopus.
