11. From the +972 blog:

As America celebrated the re-election of Barack Obama, it was business as usual in Israeli-controlled Area C of the West Bank. At least two Palestinian homes were demolished today. The residents’ ‘crime?’ They didn’t have building permits, which are issued by Israel and are next to impossible for Palestinians to obtain.
snip
As of October 25, Israel had destroyed 138 Palestinian houses in East Jerusalem and the West Bank in 2012 alone, according to the United Nations’ Displacement Working Group. Up to 690 Palestinians were displaced due to the demolitions; more than half of them are children. In 2011, that number reached 1,094.
