Cruel to the Kind and Kind to the Cruel - Israel Under Kadima

Expelled: A Powerful Video Documentary of the Tucker Family
by Baruch Gordon

All fifteen soldiers came into her house, sat at her dining room table, and listened to Anita Tucker plead with them not to forcibly remove her and her family from her home of 29 years on the day of the implementation of the 2005 Disengagement from Gush Katif.

Tucker says that she poured her heart out to the soldiers for hours, yet their faces remained blank. They showed no sign of emotion whatsoever, as though there was a glass wall between them. Only the commander said occasionally after glancing at his watch, "Mrs. Tucker, at 12:00 sharp, you have to leave your house."

Tucker thought to herself that if the soldiers could expel 9,000 Jews from their homes without any expressions of sympathy, there was no hope for the future of the State of Israel.

This broadcast is the first in a new 4-part series called "Expelled," documenting the stories of 4 families who were evicted from Gush Katif 3 years ago this month.
