Why don't the Jews work on expelling annihilationists and genocidal jihadists from Jewish land? Not Jews from the Jewish homeland. This is stomach turning.

The village was the birthplace of Ira, the son of Ikkesh, one of King David's warriors. Tekoa is renowned for being the birthplace of the Old Testament Amos (prophet).(Book of Amos 1:1) The bible states that the city was founded by Ephrathites from Bethlehem in the north and Calebites from Hebron in the south. It was a fortified city and served as an administrative center.
Modern era Tekoa was established in 1975 as a Nahal outpost. In 1977 it was handed over to civilian residents.The settlement is located on the top of a hill among ruins of the site of Jewish Tekoa, 5 miles south of Bethlehem at the foot of Herodion ("Herod's Palace").
Tekoa is located 2,177 feet (670 meters) above sea level on a ridge surrounded on three sides by a deep canyon, Nahal Tekoa, that runs east to the Dead Sea.
Tekoa is populated by a mix of religious Zionists and secular Israelis. Many new immigrants from the former Soviet Union also live in Tekoa.
UPDATE: Part of Obama's demand to ethnically cleanse Israel of her Jews. Thanks to Torey Dawn:
"JERUSALEM -- Israeli security forces have destroyed another home in a West Bank Jewish community, implementing the government's destruction orders that were served during the building freeze that ended in September.
In the early hours of Dec. 15, about 100 special police officers [Yasam] and security forces, including border police, entered the eastern Gush Etzion settlement of Tekos in the Judean desert and destroyed the home of Yigal and Maya Carlebach and their newborn son.
"Since the beginning of the freeze, civil administration [the IDF] officials came to our neighborhood and distributed destruction orders to every [Jewish] home that had been built within the last two years," Matanya Stein, a Tekoa Daled resident said. "About 400 meters from here there is an Arab house which has destruction orders pending on it for years."
Stein also said that Tekoa Daled, the furthermost neighborhood in Tekoa, was built entirely on either State land or land that the State had not yet officially claimed but Palestinians laid no claim to it."
