Palestine-Israel, As the split in the elite that part of it is already suffering threaten the Prime minister Ntaniahu hold on the media he gambled on election - and failed.

The election which was a respond to rebellion in the elite - threaten to restrict his daily newspaper, resulted in a partial defeat. He is Dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he try desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threat to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague court involvement. The France initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the west bank is efforts to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in the occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non armed struggle the struggle continue. The very optimistic activists feel already the approaching victory.


Friday 8-5-15 Just another 25 minutes of the usual short demos in Friday Bil'in.
11 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall joined with about dozen internationals the Bil'iners hard core activists in the weekly demo.
When we approached "to near" to the Israeli soldiers they started to shower us with tear gas. When we "regrouped" to the north the armed forces advanced to an un easy short distance and we "regrouped towards the outskirts of the village.
The soldiers were not satisfied with our position so a large unit approached us and flooded us in a last barrage and soon went away.
Few of the comrades took an after demo tour of the freed areas behind the route of the old dismantled separation fence including the vicinity of the new separation wall we are not allowed to reach during the "official" demo.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle enhance the B.D.S. which intensify the international pressure which already split the Israeli elite

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places.


Today 24-4-15 demo. 15 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative joined about dozen internationals and the village activists in a march towards the returned lands and the separation wall. The Israeli armed forces blocked the road at the route of the dismantled separation fence. Today they let us come very near before they started to flood us with tear gas. We retreated a bit but did not yield to them as the northern wind was most the time friendly to us. After a long advances and retreats the state forces gave a last barrage of tear gas and went away. With a small victory we returned to the village.
Bil'in Weekly Demo 1-5-15 - Te smallest and the shortest memo ever. Only 4 Israelis (as other 1st of May activities competed) joined about dozen international activists and the usual Bil'iners. The Israeli armed force was waiting to us nearer than their usual position and started shooting tear gas before we even left the built area of the village.
Due to the northern wind the most daring of us evaded the tear gas mass by going to the northern side of the olive trees orchard.
After few short intrusions of few soldiers who added metal bullet rubbed with rubber to the shooting that did not injure any one they just left less than half an hour that was the shorter confrontation till now.

Al Ma'asara
المعصرة 24.4.2015 Al-Masara
Friday 24.4.2015. A man with a flag is trying to pass through 20 soldiers that block the road. They wouldn't let him, he knows that much, so he tried to make them talk. Their commander gave them a specific order not to open their mouth, so they reduced their expressions into face gestures.
"… Why are you letting the settlers pass through my village and I can't? … Do you really hate me so much that you will follow such stupid orders? … Admit that you hate me because I am a Palestinian! … Refuse the orders and talk…Refuse the orders and let me pass! "

Nabi Saleh

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue with fresh convincing

With the convincing that our main contribution is not so much as in changes on the ground but in the spirit of the struggle of the participants and the leaning point we supply to the international lever. The gradual increase in the international pressure which the Israeli high court verdict is that is a criminal act for Israeli to promote causing already much of damages in the economy of occupation and concern of the Zionist-colonialist Israeli ruling Elite. We see here again how small number of activists can initiate a turn in the course of history when it is applied in the ripe cross-road. It started in a small joint camp in Masha 2003 for struggle against the separation fence, after the idea raised half a year earlier in the European People Global Action conference in Leiden - in which activists from the East of the Mediterranean region participated too. The camp initiated struggles in various villages that riped at 2005 in the Bil'in struggle... which expanded and expanded...


The Friday demo of 10-4-15 - the most belligerent harassment of a Friday demonstration for years. An hour before the demo the Israeli state forces invaded the village and arrested one villager and confiscated a scouter. When we started the demo the state forces showered us with teat gas and invaded the village for a while for confrontation before they retreated to the old route of the separation fence. After a long while with low intensity of confrontation they went away and we dispersed. Surprisingly, no one was injured or arrested during the demonstration.
17-4-15 Bil'in today, dozen Israelis, dozens of internationals, and Palestinian activists of the west bank, joined more than 100 Bil'iners in the Friday demonstration against the separation wall and occupation, in the memory of Baasem Abu Rahme assassinated six years ago in the Friday demo in Bil'in and in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners.
The Israeli state forces "allowed" us to march to a place near the gate in the wall, but when we arrived there they started to shower us with tear gas.
As the northern wind enabled the more stubborn demonstrators to remain in the lands, they restored to shooting of bullets rubbed with rubber and even live ammunition.
A sniper hit seriously one of the activist - Anas Mohamed Mansur age 17 who was taken to hospital.

Palestine-Israel, The collapse of the deterrent ability of Israel in the last Gaza war is expressed every where.

The frustrated Israeli state force who do not dare to prevent the weekly non armed popular demonstrations - Joined and purely of Palestinians, resort to shooting on demonstrators with frequent use of live fire by snippers. In the annexed regions of Jerusalem they no more pretend it is not an occupied area and apply there the occupation procedures - both in treatment of detaining children and houses demolition. The "hot" areas of the popular non armed struggle gradually expand but still far away from a general uprising. The international popular struggle worry the Israeli elite but the damages to the Israeli economy is still in the margins. It seems the Zionist settler colonialist elite which bribed the tycoons section of the capitalist elite with extreme neo liberal measures cannot do it any more as other sections of the capitalist elite (backers of Cakhlon) rebelled.


Friday 27-3-15

Mahmoud Abu Rahma aged 12 was arrested today when the Israeli army entered the village. The reason for his arrest was unclear. The army use these tactics to intimidate Palestinians. He was later released. During the week-long demonstration 4 protesters were injured from rubber coated steel bullets.

The Palestinian youth was wounded after being shot in the leg several times with rubber bullets. The foreigner was injured after being shot in the neck with a tear gas canister at extremely close range, less than two meters. The Israeli occupation forces attempted to trick demonstrators by hiding in between the trees, from which they fired shots at them and tried to arrest the Palestinians demonstrators who regularly participate in the weekly demonstration against the illegal Israeli occupation in the village of Bil’in. Despite their attempts and their close distance, the Israeli army failed to arrest any of the protestors."

Efi Dreyshner, member of the "Unity" ("Ahdut") Anarcho-communist organization, is now a prisoner in the Zionist military prison because he opposes the occupation and does not wish to serve in the state's armed forces.

Palestine-Israel, the joint struggle in turbulent times of the fragmentation in the Zionist rulling elite*

The merger between the Zionist leadership and the capitalist elite which started 1948 picked in the Tycoons dominance, at 20010. The "too successful" neo-liberalism was challenged by the social struggle, conflicts within the capitalist elite and threatened by international pressure yielded the diminishing power of the old order when the right lost its absolute power in the parliament depending now on the opponent of the milder Zionist right (Kachlon). It is not sure how fast the retreat in the neo-liberal trend and the defeat of the Tycoons combined with the international pressure will yield also retreat in the advance of the Zionist settler and transfer effort. Mean time the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Kadum, Ma'asarah, Southern Hebron Hills, Sheikh Jarrah, th Bedouins of the south, Dahamsh... with additional locations from time to time.


This Friday 7 Israeli, few internationals and "guests" from the regions joined the Bil'in people in the 527th Friday demo in Bil'in. In spite of the huge amount of tear gas shooting - never seen before, the army thugs could not disperse us due to a friendly wind. After long confrontation the army left the main confrontation area but invaded the southern part of the village.
Dozens of injuries and cases of suffocation at Bil'in's weekly march
There were dozens of cases of injuries and suffocation from tear gas during today's weekly demonstration in Bil'in. The Israeli army rained bombs of gas and rubber-coated metal bullets at participants as they moved up to the outskirts of the village on the west side. The march started from the center of the village, with the participation of the villagers, including children and friends of international activists and Israelis who reject the occupation in all its forms. They raised Palestinian flags and pictures of the child captive Khalid Hossam El-Sheikh, and the five other children detainees Today marks the 2 year anniversary of their arrest. Demonstrators raised slogans that reflect the theft of Palestinian children, and call for the release of their colleagues and children who are approaching the number of three hundred. They are calling for humanitarian organizations and human rights organizations to intervene for their release. Also, the demonstrators carried photos in solidarity with American activist Tristan Anderson. We saw slogans such as "Tristan always in our hearts", and We pray for your recovery". Tristan is an American young man who came to show solidarity with the Palestinians in 2009. He was hit with a tear gas canister fired by Israeli border guards, hitting him directly in the head. This led to a full and permanent quadriplegia in all limbs and he lost the sight in his right eye. This took place on 03/13/2009 in Ni'lin village, west of Ramallah, where today marks the sixth anniversary of his injury. The canister that injured Anderson are of the same type that caused the death of Bassem Abu Rahma. The case has been brought to the Israeli government , but until now, they are dragging their heels in the case and are claiming it is inadmissible on the grounds that he was in a war zone, and one of the sessions of Public Prosecutions said it is possible that the Palestinians shot him and not the border guards, in an attempt to escape from their crime.
The demonstrators also carried pictures of the American activist Rachel Corrie, to commemorate the twelfth anniversary of her martyrdom, which falls on Monday.
"I'm so happy that my little nephews,nieces and other children still alive and fine after the Israeli occupation forces fired directly at our houses today after they entered our village (Bilin )During the weekly Demonstration Against"

Bil'in, Friday 20-3-15 demo. 15 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative joined international and Bil'iners activists. The Israeli state forces "allowed" us to cross to the lands returned to the village. However, just when we converged there they started to shower us with tear gas. As the wind was erratic, they failed to disperse us as fast as they wished. After they came with their armored cars we were gradually pushed to the built area of the village where we persisted till the state force left the area.
Satisfied with our persistence we stay a short while before ending the demo.


Nabi Saleh

Friday 13/03/2015 The Israeli army stepped up its violent suppression of the weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh this week. As villagers and solidarity activists marched down the main road leading to the entrance to the village, soldiers targeted them with tear gas canisters, live ammunition and finally, physical violence. One young man sustained an injury from a live (“tutu”) bullet, and was taken to a hospital for treatment. Several others, including children, were beaten mercilessly. Three female demonstrators were arrested.during the demonstration: Boshra Tamimi, Shireen Al Araj and Tali Shapiro.
Tali was released after several hours (due to the fact that she is an Israeli Jewish citizen), However, Boshra remains under arrest for another 4 days and Shireen another 24 hours.
Tali has reported that though they were all beaten during the arrest, Boshra and Shireen remain in good spirits and were "schooling" the Israeli Occupation soldiers and police, when Tali was made to leave the police station.
Filthy occupation forces decided to break the spirit of Nabi Saleh demonstration. Violent suppression efforts included the firing of live ammunition and arbitrary arrests of demonstrators. It also preceded days before the weekly demonstration with nightly arrests.

Friday 20-3-15. Gunfire and tear gas dispersed in the air of Ni'lin during the Friday prayer. There was no real provocation on the part of the boys who stood in front of the hill which is within the area of ​​the village and far from the Apartheid wall. There were some shouts and curses between the soldiers that stood on the hill and the boys. The soldiers seemed intoxicated by the power of their weapons or simply drunk, fired at will rubber coated metal bullets and gas canisters during the dialogue of curses. I decided to move forward the direction of the soldiers. They stormed at my direction and when they got approximately 10 meters from me one of them shot a rubber coated steal bullet at my foot (The picture shows three I think it was the one in the middle). That was probably the most painful rubber-coated metal bullet I have ever got. The heroes who just shot an unarmed photographer, quickly returned to the top of the hill and I was evacuated by friends to a nearby ambulance. A Friend took the camera and took some pictures of me and of the rest of the demonstration (Which took place even though the soldiers tried to disperse it before it started)

After a short while I decided to leave the ambulance and tried to get closer to the hill again. The trigger happy soldiers continued to fire at will. But this time the boys trough stones back at them. I thought for a second that the three soldiers saw me and paused their inflammatory behavior but I think now that it probably was a wishful thinking

Kafr Qadoom

"The most important events in Kafr Qaddum march today 20-3-2015
2 Palestinians wounded by metal bullets covered with rubber:
· Mohammad Jomaa 17 in his leg.
· Mohammad Baz 22 in his leg

Also the army emptied the contents of the skunk water car in the house of Zohdi Shtaiwi.
The army stormed the village from 3 directions and the youth stopped them using stones.
Hundreds of Palestinians with Israeli friends join the march under the slogan of" Patience and Unity"

Abu Dis

13.3.2015 A peaceful demonstration became violent with moments after the army made arrests of 2 demonstrators that did nothing wrong. 15 soldiers lined up in front of about 30 protesters. Neither side budged. Lieutenant Colonel who was there said he will not let protesters demonstrate here as if it were Bil'in. He Stood aside and began documenting with his Smart-phone when one of his subordinates gave the order to arrest two protesters who did nothing. Boys started throwing stones at the soldiers. The soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and gas grenades directly at them. When a group of photographers got close I heard a soldier saying to one of his friends "beware there are photographers". The direct shooting of gas canisters stopped

The mother of one of the detainees sat on the ground refusing to budge. At first it felt like the soldiers would not hesitate to move her with force, but She asked several photographers to document and rightly so. The presence of cameras probably prevented violent eviction. Slowly but surely the hateful stares of soldiers changed into embarrassment gazes

17-3-15 Palestinians reinforced by Israelis of the anarchists against the wall initiative and internationals, faced the Israeli army in the rebuilt of ‘Jerusalem Gate’ protest encampment near Abu Dis. The protest encampment has been destroyed numerous times before and was erected to reclaim territory earmarked for a new Jewish only settlement. The IDF violently dispersed protesters with tear gas, stun grenades and rubber coated steel bullets, arresting seven of them (three Palestinians and four Israelis).
Palestinian, international and Israeli activists protested against Israeli plans to seize and build in the E1 area, which would cut off the northern and southern parts of the West Bank.
About 10 activists managed to enter the construction area and climb onto Israeli bulldozers. Israeli soldiers shot tear gas and sound bombs at the protesters. Activists also tried to erect two protest tents but failed as Israeli forces soon closed off the area. A total of seven activists were arrested during the action and put in a closed construction container for two hours before they were taken in an army jeep. The Israeli activists among them were later released on bond, the Palestinians were scheduled to be brought to the Ofer Military Court.
In the last two months, Palestinians staged a protest tent in the area and termed it “Jerusalem Gate.” The tent was destroyed by Israeli forces and rebuilt by the Palestinian activists over seven times.

Palestine-Israel, The joined struggle in a decisive year

The minimal pressure of the imperial power on Israel to soften its pressures applied to the would be transfered Palestinians of the 1967 occupied areas have its results (more in the west bank than in the Gaza Ghetto). The about 100.000 Palestinians of the occupied territories are employed by Israelis. Most of the roadblocks were removed. The rebellion of the Palestinians in the west bank is channeled mostly through a small minority of activists in the joint and separate week end activities. People are like holding their breath to see if the culminated crisis in the international arena will yield a significant break throw. Mean time, the persistent week end struggles - though in a diminished intensity in Bil'in, Ma'asara, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills, Sheik Jarrah... with sporadic struggles in other locations.


“....The most important thing that changed is the culture of the people of Bil’in, says Abdullah Abu Rahmah, an activist in the village’s Popular Struggle Committee, which organizes the protests. “Over the years we have managed to free our minds from the occupation. The Israeli occupation is not just soldiers standing on our land, it is the control of our thoughts, it is the fear that every Palestinian has when staring down the occupation. And we have overcome that, the fear of the soldiers, of police, the Shin Bet, the courts — we express ourselves freely and act to realize our rights. In Bil’in, we are educating the next generation not to be afraid.” Abdullah Abu Rahmah

Ten years of popular resistance in Bil'in - 20-2-2015 - Today marks the 10th anniversary of weekly demonstrations against the Israeli Apartheid Wall in the West Bank village of Bil'in. There have been more demos and actions than the 520 Friday protests of Palestinians from the village and other parts of the occupied west bank, accompanied by Israelis (mostly with the anarchists against the wall initiative) and nearly always international solidarity activists - always marching towards the route of the barrier that cut the lands of the village.

This Friday dozens of participants suffered from tear gas hurting the eyes and inhalation during the march as the Israeli forces attacked us long before we reached the old route of the separation fence (blocking us the last few months from approaching the separation wall that replaced it). Few times the soldiers used jeeps to chase demonstrators towards the village using lot of tear gas canisters and rubber bullets as due to the strong northern wind they failed to disperse us. Some members of families who live nearby also suffered from tear gas.

During the demo - in addition to the usual chants and flags we held pictures of children who are detained in Israeli jails, especially the one of a sick 14 year old child Khlid Alshaikh.
Hamza Burnat https://www.facebook.com/hamza.burnat/posts/805111516209571

Did you take take part in a protest in Bilin during the last 10 years? #Did you take part in any local protest somewhere in Palestine? #Did you take part in a protest somewhere around the world? If the answer was yes and there's a picture of you during the protest, upload the picture with the sentence: I will be a part of the tenth anniversary of the popular struggle in Bilin and will take part in the protest on the 27th of February 2015. If the answer was no, don't miss the chance to express your opinion about refusing the occupation. Write: I will take part in a protest for the first time in Bilin on the 27th of February 2015, the tenth anniversary of the popular struggle. Let's all participate together in this protest to end the occupation, Bil'in Popular Committee against wall and settlements
Friday 27-2-15 Just Returned from the ten year anniversary demo in Bil'in. About 80 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative, with hundreds of Palestinians from the village, near by villages, and Ramalah and some internationals. We Marched at noon from the center of the village towards the new separation wall.
This Friday they let us come near the gate of the wall before starting to shower us with tear gas.
The east wind was friendly to us so the soldiers had to come and confront the demonstrators. 5 were arrested - 3 Israelis and two Palestinians. Few were injured - including two who were taken to hospital.
We returned tired but with satisfaction.

Bil'in, 6-3-15: After closing 10 years of struggle against the occupation and the separation wall we started the eleventh year of struggle. Seven Israelis and dozen internationals converged with the activists and youth of the village at the Abu Lamun oak groove (we were prevented to reach for months). Minutes after we stared the demo the Israeli state forces started to shower us with tear gas. As the eastern wind prevented them from dispersing us, they came with armored cars and forced us to return most of the way to the village were we stood firm till the army cars left the area and we returned to the village with another small victory.


Protest 06.03.2015 - soldiers fired several live bullets at 2 protesters who managed to hide well and avoid being killed, all they did was using mirrors to reflect the sun light on the face on the sniper to make him lose his focus and not be able to snipe any protester.
however, 2 protesters were injured as a result of getting shot with rubber coated steel bullet and other dozens of suffocation of tear gas canister.

Palestine-Israel, 10 years of the joint struggle in Bil'in against the settlers, the separation fence/wall, and occupation.

The joint struggle of the villages local popular comities and the Israeli "anarchists against the wall" initiative started about 12 years ago in the Maskha camp. Joint struggles were developed in various villages with various successes but only the struggle of Bil'in persisted for year after year holding high the flag of popular unarmed struggle and became the focus of attention and inspirations for Palestinians of the whole west bank, many thousands of international activists who joined us for short periods (and some for long ones)... spreading the news and the struggle after returning home. Even the few thousand of the Israeli wide spectrum of the radical left been in Bil'in at least once and helped us to prevent the marginalization of the popular Palestinian resistance. On the coming Friday - the 20th of February, we will celebrate our 10 years of contributing to the Palestinian Tsumud (persistence) - the only thing that prevented the Zionist total transfer out of the Palestinians.


Today, in Bil'in, West Bank, Palestinian children stood firmly against the occupation. As always, the non-violent demonstrators were met with teargas and rubber bullets. There is not much of a childhood for Palestinian kids. The occupation also robs us of that.

Friday 13-2-15:8 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall (4 of us also of the anarcho-communist Ahdut [Unity]) joined a dozen of internationals and Bil'iners in the end of the ten years of Friday demos. While we were converging near the last homes of the village, The Israeli state forces started to shower the road with a barrage of tear gas. After a while, the wind cleared the cloud of tear gas and we started to march towards the route of the original separation fence dismantled after years of struggle and replaced by a wall about one kilometer to the west... The army tried to block our way but many of us succeeded to cross the small valley and arrived when the soldiers stood. As they failed to block the way using tear gas and shooting they sprayed pepper on the faces of some of us and arrested two: they arrest Mohamed Khatib of the village struggle comity, and an activist from the UK. One participant suffered from a wound in his leg caused by a steel bullet.coated by rubber, and 10 suffered from Pepper spray directed to their faces. .
Experimenting in Bil'in: It was a bit strange that in a windy Friday, mostly a western wind that hampered the demonstration, lot of people succeeded to come very near to the soldiers. It seems, like it occurred in the past, Israeli state forces lured many of us to approach so they will be able to try a new weapon or a tactic. To day, they tested a mass use on pepper spray on faces of 10 participant (including two feminine Israelis and two others they they arrested after the spray for observation).

Nabi Saleh

Scores suffocated from tear gas today during the weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh. The march began at Martyrs’ Square and proceeded towards the main entrance to the village, whose iron gates were closed. Palestinian and foreign protesters were led by children carrying signs with slogans against the occupation and demanding national rights. When protesters were 100 meters from the gate, clashes ensued, and the Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets at protesters. Demonstrators then marched towards the expropriated water spring and lands, as women and girls led the march to shield the youth from the snipers. The popular resistance movement is calling to form a united leadership and program of struggle on the basis of popular resistance in order to resist policies of uprooting, displacement and settlements, and for the international community to implement resolutions against the occupation.
Palestinian women, children and men demonstrated in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh today against the occupation and illegal theft of their lands. The protest was met with a barrage of over a hundred tear gas canisters fired by Israeli soldiers. The village's women and young children also faced down Israeli snipers, who were attempting to occupy earth mounds directly amidst the protesters
Today in Nabi Saleh: Israeli occupation force snipers opened fire on residents with live ammunition.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 440

On Tuesday, January 27, 2015, the Israeli army held maneuvers in the north-west part of the Palestinian village of Bardalah, in the northern Occupied Palestinian Jordan Valley. Hundreds of soldiers entered the village while firing weapons and throwing stun grenades. They also conducted searches in village homes. On Friday the maneuvers were still ongoing throughout all of the northern part of the Palestinian Jordan Valley.
After publicizing the news about destroying crops in the South Hebron Hills, I found out that I had been mistaken: the lands concerned are located inside Israel proper. They had been the property of the said villagers prior to 1948. Following the war, as they were on the Israeli side of the border, Israel's government took over their ownership. The original owners claim their right to have them back.
Don’t say we didn’t know #441
On Wednesday, 4th February, 2015, tractors from the Parks and Nature Reserves Authority, with a military escort, destroyed nearly 800 dunums (dunum = 1000 sq.m) of crops belonging to Palestinians in the South Hebron Hills, on lands belonging to villagers from Jinba, Halawa and Markaz.
------------------------- ------------------------------
On Tuesday, 3rd February, 2015, government representatives escorted by the Yoav unit of the police force came to Bedouin localities in the Negev to slough and destroy crops. First they destroyed in Abu Grinat, near Aroer junction, and then in Hura. On their way back from Hura, they were involved in an accident in which eight Bedouin women from Hura were killed and thirty injured.
