Palestine-Israel, The activists participating in the joint struggle get old... but the struggle is still young and vigorous*

It is hard for many activists when the real meaning of the struggle not a concrete achievable gains, but a global world wide struggle. This week, the concrete and the global merged when the struggle against the destruction of the Susia village recruited international support and forced Israel to delay or even cancel the demolition of the village. The pressure from the imperial powers on Israel was joined by European warning about approaching sanctions on the Israeli banking system for its involvement in the settlers projects in the occupied west bank. It seems the eroding in the Israeli immunity from paying for its war crimes is collecting momentum. The Israeli media is full of news about the B.D.S. - the joint struggle in which thousands of international activists participate contribute to a lot. The heroic Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'asara, and Sheik Jarrah keep the weekly flame from extinguishing.


Friday10-7-15 demo. 5 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall and about dozen internationals joined the Bil'iners. As usual, just when the demo exited from the village and entered the olive trees region the Israeli armed forces started to shower us with tear gas. Due to the northern wind most of us remained around. After a while we started again to march and got a more violent shower with many small tear gas canisters which hit many of us but non was injured. We retreated farther in the direction of the village where we persisted till the army cars left the region and we could declare another small victory.
Friday17-7-15 demo. 10 Israelis with the Anarchists Against the Wall and about 20 internationals joined the village activists. Before we even started the demo the Israeli forces shoot first warning tear gas canisters. Short while after we started chanting and marching down the road the first barrage of tear gas was started. Due to a temporary northern wind we manage to retreat a bit safely. After a long while a second march started with the more bold participants who got a second shower of tear gas before retreating. The more persistent ones remained till the state forces went a way to declare our victory.
2Friday 24-7-15 was a "good Friday" (:
We were 7 Israelis with the Anarchist Against the Wall initiative. We joined about 15 international and the Bil'iners activists in a hot summer day for the short march from the village towards the old route of the separation fence - were the Israeli state force locate themselves the last months.
After weeks in which the wind blew mainly from the west and carried the tear gas towards us, we had a nice surprise. There was a strong northern wind all along the demo. The Israeli state forces failed to cop with it and only forced us to walk among the olive trees to the north. After the usual 30 minutes the forces went away without dispersing us even once.
A sweet victory

South West Bank - Beit Elbaraka

Of today protest organized by South West Bank popular Committee in front of Beit Elbaraka (House of Blessing) endangered compound. The Protesters declared during the protest the formation of Beit Elbaraka Defense Committee which aims at providing the necessary legal aid to protect the compound of being confiscated, internationalize the cause of this compound, to organize protests regularly in that area, provide am much media coverage as we locally and internationally to shed more light on this endangered area, and to connect with local and international NGOs and solidarity movements to help us protect this property. The protesters (Palestinian, Israeli and international activists) chanted for freedom, raised Palestinian flags and signs demanding to boycott Israeli occupation and to put and end of Israeli occupation and the illegal colonization of Palestinian land. 10s of heavily armed Zionist occupation forces prevented us at gunpoint from reaching the compound. This compound was a hospital serving the Palestinian local communities until 1983 and is part of the Palestinian Christian endowment, 11 July 2015.

Nebi Saleh

On the last Friday of Ramadan, residents of Nabi Saleh confronted the Israeli army, demanding an end to land expropriations and the release of political prisoners. The IDF attempted to disperse protesters using tear gas, rubber bullets and many rounds of live ammunition. No injuries reported.

Nabi Saleh 24/07/2015 Villagers and solidarity activists - including Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative, marched against the occupation in Nabi Saleh, heading for the hilly edge of the village overlooking the settlement of Halamish. The IDF, however, was already waiting for demonstrators with at least two snipers who immediately fired live ammunition. Without using any other crowd control measures, such as stun grenades, the snipers fired tutu (0.22mm) live bullets at the demonstrators, injuring two, a man in his 20s, and a 17 year old boy. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment. This comes at the heels of several fatal shootings: a high ranking officer, commander of the area’s forces, executed a boy for stone throwing at his car, only to be given the full protection and support from the army; earlier this week, a teen was shot dead by the army in the Jenin area, and a man of 52 was shot and killed by soldiers in his own home near Hebron; a few hours later, two brothers were shot and severely injured during a military raid in their Nablus home. This escalation also proves that the military and legal apparatus provide soldiers with protection thus lending legitimacy after the fact to shooting civilians without accountability.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 457
During the Ramadan month of fasting, the Israeli government usually holds a cease fire regarding the demolition of homes in unrecognized villages of the Negev Bedouins. Not so in Al Arakib. On Thursday, July 2, 2015, government agents escorted by police came around and demolished the place for the 86th time.

Don’t say we didn’t know #459
A story of a Palestinian family whose only wish is to live in dignity.
On Tuesday, 7th July, 2015, Suleiman El Ka’abneh, from the Palestinian village Ein El Hilwe (near the settlement Maskiot, in the Jordan Valley, West Bank) drove to bring water to his family’s flock of sheep. IDF soldiers detained him, confiscating his tractor and water tanker. In 2012, a water tanker was confiscated from his family; his family’s home has been demolished three times since 2010.

Palestine-Israel, The world in turmoil; the old world order will never be the same again; and the joint struggle contributed to the processes that tip the scales*.

On 1st of January 1994 in Chiapas the masses held high the flag of rebellion just after the world capitalist celebrated their triumph on the revolutions of the 20th century and promoted their neo-liberal globalization of the world. But the struggle continued in entirely new mode. The amazing development in Rojava in which the main imperial powers find themselves giving aerial support to the anti authoritarian anti capitalists Kurds of Syria is like a flock of sparrows that mark that the spring is already hear. As part of the imminent change is the panic of the Israeli Zionist ruling elite from the faster advance of the B.D.S.... We cannot measure the contribution of each act of struggle to the change, but it seems that the many thousands of international activists who participated with us in the non armed joint struggle against the separation fence, the settlers, and occupation have a significant share.


Friday weekly demonstration 19.6.2015
Friday 26-6-15 in Bil'in. A dozen Israelis joined the villagers in the weekly demonstration against against the occupation and the separation wall and in solidarity with Imad of Jaffa brain damaged in Bil'in demo years ago.
We barely exited from the village when the Israeli state force started to shower us with tear gas.
In spite the western wind and shower of tear gas canisters we persisted nearly an hour till the armed forces went away.

On April 23 2010, Emad Rizka from Jaffa participated in a demonstration in Bil'in commemorating the Shahid Bassem Abu Rahme (Phill), that was shot to death by an Israeli soldiers a year before. Ironically Emad was shot exactly the same way that Bassem was shot - with a metal gas canister, shot directly at him against open fire regulations of the army. He was severely wounded in the head and suffers until this day from brain damage. Two weeks ago, five years after the incident, the Israeli Military Advocate General decided to close the case and not to prosecute the shooting soldier. In the demonstration today, the people of Bil'in demanded justice for Emad and the indictment of the criminal soldier.
3-7-2015 the 537th Friday demo in Bil'in against the occupation and the settlers and in the memory of Mohammed Abu Khdair burned to death a year ago by settler. 15 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative and few international supporters joined the Bil'iners. The wind was a bit better this week and most of us succeeded to to resist the tear gas shower by dispersing among the olive trees long enough to see the Israeli soldiers going away - failing to stop the demonstration.

Nabi Saleh

Friday weekly demonstration 19.6.2015 On the first Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, residents of Nabi Saleh staged a demonstration in solidarity with the hunger striking political prisoner, Khader Adnan. Adnan, who already went through a long hunger strike back in 2012 before he was released, launched another hunger strike several weeks ago in protest of the repeated renewal of his administrative detention. Since then, his medical condition has reportedly deteriorated, and he was taken to an Israeli hospital, where he is kept cuffed to his bed. Protesters held banners with Adnan's image and marched with the Palestinian flag. The Israeli soldiers attempted to disperse them by firing rounds of tear gas. No major injuries reported.

Don’t say we didn’t know #454

On Thursday, 11th June, 2015, the IDF ordered Palestinian communities in the Jordan Valley to evacuate, together with their livestock, due to army maneuvers. The communities live in El Malih, El Burj, El Minka and Khumsa. They moved out of their homes and localities for six hours (06:00-12:00). The army said that on 17th June, 2015 they would again have to evacuate for similar reasons – military exercises in the region.

On Wednesday, 10th June, 2015, government representatives again demolished El’Araqib. Similarly, in ’Abde (near the ruins of Ovdat) and in Fur’a (near Arad), Bedouin homeowners demolished their own homes, fearing that the authorities would demolish those homes and make them pay the expenses!
Don’t say we didn’t know #455
On Saturday, 13th June, 2015, Palestinians from Susya, in the South Hebron Hills, discovered that settlers had damaged ten of their olive trees. The olive grove is near the settlement Susya (the Palestinian village and Israeli settlement share the same name) and an IDF guard-post.

Palestine-Israel, The B.D.S. collect momentum and the fear of its future development frighten the Israeli elite*

The damage to the Israeli economy seems to be yet only marginal... but the margin expand now faster. Some of the firm already yield to the pressure targeted at areas in the settlements of the 1967 occupation and regroup back to the Israeli areas of 1948, in spite of the loss in government bribes and cheaper work force. The Israeli media is full with warning and even beginning of fear mongering. The connection between the joint struggle in the demos and the B.D.S. and the development of the boycott is acknowledged. Mean time the efforts to transfer of the Palestinians from key areas - the Bedouins in the south of the 1948 areas and in area C of the 1967 occupation intensify, as if they know that the opportunities to do it will end soon. Mean time, the non armed Friday demos are suppressed inconsistently with special treatment to Qadum.


5-6-15 Friday demo. 14 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall and about 20 internationals joined the activists of the village. As usual lately, the state forces waited for us near the route of the dismantled separation fence to prevent us from reaching the further separation wall. Just as we reached the valley, the soldiers of the state force started to shower us with tear gas. Few of the shabab went to the left (north) to confront the second unit. Due to the mostly western wind we had to regroup back few times and returning again.
After about 30 minutes the soldiers went away and we declared our victory before returning to the village.
Bil'in today - Friday 12-6-15, another weekly Demo against the occupation and the separation wall. 13 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative, joined many internationals and Bil'iners. Just when we were in the road leading from the village to the west, the Israeli thugs started to shower us with tear gas. Due to the northern wind we just retreated a bit and repeatedly advanced and retreated. After a long while we ended the demo and retreated to the village.

Don't Say We Did Not Know 452

Palestinians living in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron suffer repeated assaults by the Jewish settlers and IDF soldiers. For example, on May 16, 2015, young settlers threw stones at the home of the Abu Aisha family located next to the Jewish settlement at Tel Rumeida. On May 23, 2015, teen-age settlers assaulted a delegation of Quakers exiting after visiting the home of Palestinian family Azzeh. Soldiers entered the house after the visit and conducted a search. First they accused on of the family's female member of throwing stones. Then settlers began to hurl stones at the house. The girl was hurt. The soldiers went out towards the settlers and did not return.

Beit Elbarakah

Of yesterday (6 June 2015) protest in front of Beit Elbarakah endangered compound organized by South West Bank Popular Committees. 10's of Palestinian and Israeli peace activists marched peacefully towards the complex at road 60. Activists raised Palestinian flags, chanted for freedom and Palestine. The moment we arrived to the complex, 10s of heavily armed Zionist occupation forces attacked us trying to disperse us, but continued trying to enter the endangered complex. The complex is a property of the Christian Endowment, it was built in the 1940s as a hospital to serve the Palestinian community in that area, then was closed late 1960s because of financial problems, since then it was used for different social and religious activities. Lately terrorist Zionist occupation colonists are trying to take over the complex at gunpoint in favor of colonial expansion. .
-------- -------- --------
On Thursday, May 28, 2015, government agents escorted by police demolished homes in Bedouin villages in the Negev: a residence was demolished in Kuchla, north of Kseife and in Kufr Sar near Dimona. At Umm Batin, near Omer, a structure was destroyed.

Don’t say we didn’t know #453

On Thursday, 4th June 2015, IDF soldiers demolished tent living quarters and sheep-pens belonging to four Palestinian families in Humsa, in the Jordan Valley in the West Bank (near Hamra checkpoint).

This time the fact is plain for everyone to see: the Israeli government intends to demolish the village of Umm al Kheiran and in its stead build the (Jewish) community of Hiran. People are to be removed from their homes for the sole “crime” of having been born Bedouins in the State of the Jews, to make way for settling people whose sole advantage is to have been born Jews. What could be more racist?!

Less obvious is the intention to uproot the neighboring village of Atir in order to plant a forest. Again, humans will be removed for being Bedouins in the Jewish State, not even for the sake of settling Jews there, but merely to plant a forest! This is a familiar practice. Tuwail Abu Jarwal was wiped out, after 50 demolitions and residents’ arrests, and now the JNF has planted a forest in its stead. Al Arakib has been demolished over 80 times, with the same intent of planting a forest there.

Palestine-Israel, the joint struggle which enhance the B.D.S. suffer lately more punishments then ever.

The non armed joint actions - mainly few Friday demos, do not cause the Israeli armed forces much load. However, the focusing of the media on these, and more so the international activist participating in them who enhance the international struggle when they return home, really worry the Israeli authorities. Their borders screening which succeed to prevent the entry of activists is not much effective. The Israeli ruling elite is not in panic yet, but lately they worry a lot. The president of Israel warn that the development of the B.D.S. must cause a real concern. The threat of the expulsion from the FIFA cause Israel to make concession to prevent the voting and even agreed to a special monitoring comity. The subject of the B.D.S. is more and more in the media and many of the speaker admit their fear from its intensifying.


Friday 22-5-15 - the persistence struggle continue. 11 Israeli of the anarchists against the wall and similar number of international supporters joined the local villagers. As usual, we started to march from the village towards the separation wall. As usual the last few months the Israeli armed forces were posited near Baasem (Fil) memorial where was the gate in the already dismantled separation fence. As usual lately, when we advanced a bit, the state force started to flood us with tear gas.
As the wind was not friendly - a western one, it was hard to evade it so we started to retreat. The state force border police was not satisfied with our slaw retreat so they advanced while shooting.
On their way they passed an old Israeli who was not fast enough. Mocking them he clapped his hands and in retaliation they threw at him two sound grenade.
After a while, the border police retreated a bit and the tear gas was blown away, so we did started a second march which was shot the same as the previous one.
We regrouped again to the fringe of the village waiting few minutes before the state force left the area and we declared another small victory.
Friday 29.5.15 Our weekly demonstration against Israel's brutal occupation against Palestine today was once again met with excessive use of tear gas which caused fires around homes in the village.

Nabi Saleh

Residents of Nabi Saleh marched alongside solidarity activists in defiance of the Israeli army. As every Friday, demonstrators protest the ongoing land confiscation and Israeli settlement project. This Friday, marchers reached close to the entrance of the village, where the soldiers were waiting for them, and attempted to disperse the march using tear gas and stun grenades. No major injuries reported.

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! "

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.
