Palestine-Israel: Not even 10 years of joint struggle and the fruits are already ripe*


The Israel main daily Yedioth Ahronoth revealed in the morning of 13-1-15 a classified document of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: "Worsening European measures against Israel... fear that the US stop using its veto power in the Security Council... a particularly gloomy forecast for 2015. It shows how far the political tsunami could reach, and in some ways has already begun". It seems the many thousands of international activists and dignitaries who participated in the joint struggle with the Israeli activists of the anarchists against the wall together with the Palestinian popular village comities were the catalysts that put the struggle on the media agenda again and again till the minimal mass already reached. First, the video clips invaded the main stream media, than Bil'in Habibti documentary and the pick was expressed in the 5 broken cameras award... and like a snow ball rolling down the mountain it is unstoppable now.


Bil'in

"The demo in BILIN gathered about 60 persons who suffered from gas as Israeli soldiers directed gas and rubber bullets to the people present on the scene.As usual,an important quantity of gas penetrated our village.
On the very same day,in 2011,we lost JAWAHER ABU RAHMA,the sister of BASSEM ABU RAHMA,who was martyred in PALESTINE,in BILIN,on 17/04/2009.
This atrocious MURDER was perpetrated by the ISRAELI OCCUPATION FORCES while he was taking part in a non violent demonstration against the ISRAELI OCCUPATION of OUR HOMELAND:PALESTINE".

Bil'in, Friday 9-1-15 - and as usual, the weekly demonstration different each time. 8 Israelis and dozen international activists joined tens of Bil'iners on a cold and drizzling afternoon. Southern wind, a new unit of Israel's armed forces, and tear gas in abundance ... we avoided quite easily. After more than an hour of confrontation - during which the armed forces "succeeded to force us to retreat back a bit, they got exhausted and left us alone with a tear gas cloud that covered the the small valley. With no one to confront we choose to end the demonstration and returned to the village.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle and the activists of the popular comities continue to contribute to the imminent end of 1967 occupation*


The approaching victory in the struggle to block the advance of the Zionist settler colonialist project and even to force it to retreat a bit do not make the real good people to like the enrolling of history. The approaching defeat make the Israeli elite take desperate steps and do its atrocities in the open. The efforts to transfer the Bedouins within 1948 borders and villagers in 1967 occupied territories escalate. The diminishing support of Israel by the imperial power due to changes in the dynamics of the region, world public opinions and economic losses it cause gradually change the power balance within the Israeli capitalist elite that may be expressed in the coming elections. On the ground, the joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, Sheikh Jarah, Kadum, and South Of Hebron Hills, is gradually expanding to other locations even without the "shield" of Israeli activists.


Bil'in

Today in Bil'in demo 6 Israelis and about doze internationals joined dozens of Bil'iners. Due to changing wind many of us succeeded to resist the efforts of the Israeli armed tugs to disperse us for about an hour. However, when the wind changed to a western one most of us had to return to the village.

Friday 25.12.2014
Hello everyone.
As we reached the village - well before the march started a strong smell of gas.flooded us.
Tearfully we realized the falsify statement that the occupation army fires the means of dispersing "Rioting" gas only on "processions without permission" and "illegal demonstrations". They shoot just because they can.
On Friday, participated in the demonstration "a senior Fatah official of Qalqilya and Nablus" and the demonstration was Particularly festive. Less solemn and dignified was the conduct of the army of occupation. The army was waiting inside the village leaving far behind the lines the forbidden road.
The amount of gas that was fired yesterday in Qadum was unusual even to the experienced of us.The whole Village was shrouded in gas. Plenty of gas. They fired stun grenades, rubber.coated steel bullets and even the first time regular live ammunition (not the 22 kind). Several people were hurt after inhaling tear gas or heated by canisters and were treated on the spot. The leg.of one Palestinian youth was hit by a live bullet. The bullet entered on one side of the leg and came out on the other side. Non-lethal crowd-control measures? Not even their according to their claims. Do I meet the criminal shooter in Salem? Not likely. It seems that everything is possible these days.The tear gas clouds finally dissipated and it was probably the signal to use to spray the skunk stench water so its mark will remain for days.

In Qassum the Qadumians know to protect their home. Some older women moved forward and stood at the edge of the demonstration not far from the main crowd, one carrying a prayer. A group of girls cheerfully advanced with signs - advancing and retreating, back and forth. Will this be a feminist women's demonstration ? Not.But it was a pretty sight.
I wish recovery to the injured.And thanks to Abdullah Qadumi for this video.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 433

On Wednesday morning December 10th, 2014, Border Policemen in Hebron fired teargas near the Kiton Checkpoint (209), not far from the Palestinian elementary school Ibrahimiya. The gas penetrated the schoolhouse and the principal had to send the children home. One child was hospitalized. On the next day the Israeli forces repeated the action and fired teargas grenades. At Hadiya three teargas grenades landed at the entrance of the school, in Al Khalil four teargas grenades landed in the schoolyard. A child was physically hurt from a teargas grenade and hospitalized. Both schools were closed.

On Monday, December 8th, 2014, Israeli government agents escorted by police demolished the Bedouin village of Al Arakib in the Negev once more.

---------------------------------------------------------------
DON’T SAY WE DIDN’T KNOW #434
According to the Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality’s home demolition statistics, there were 859 Negev Bedouin homes demolished between July 2013 and June 1014!
78% were demolished by the owners under threat by the inspectors that if they didn’t demolish their homes themselves, the State would demolish them, and the owners would have to pay the State’s demolition costs.
On Wednesday, government representatives escorted by police came to demolish homes in Bedouin localities in the Negev. In Tel Arad, north of Kseife, a large addition to a mosque was destroyed.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the back ground of the end of world "status Quo" and as catalyst in our region*


Ended the old world order in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of US, continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine. Europe started to advance its own interests which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinions against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the west bank contribute a lot. It was the approaching of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for election to save him from the timely election when the crisis will be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles focused the light on the ferment and the rising of the popular non armed struggles Israel contemplate enhancing the suppression of with systematic use of live ammunition.

Bili'n

05/12/2014 Friday DEMO.Around 50 persons took part in today's demo.
A group of journalists were targeted by soldiers who threw gas at them.A female ‪#‎journalist‬ was lightly ‪#‎injured‬ on the head.
Soldiers used hails of rubbers bullets at continuous ‪#‎shooting‬ speed and tear gas canisters from their jeeps.
It is needless to say that gas once again entered our village.
The Occupying forces are doing their very best to make ‪#‎Palestinian‬ lives UNBEARABLE on their own HOMELAND,but this can only strengthen our fight for ‪#‎FREEDOM‬ and our LOVE for our BLESSED HOLY LAND".
The lousy wind was not friendly. It did not carry the wind away or to the Israeli armed ones. It was not the usual tear gas as it brought agony to the lungs mainly - not the eyes.

12-12-14 Today I got in Bil'in my weekly fix of tear gas. Ten Israelis, a dozen internationals joined the Bil'iners in a march towards the separation wall. As usual lately the Israeli state force prevented us from even approaching the route of the removed separation fence. However due to the help of the friendly wind few of us succeeded to defy the clouds of the tear gas and come nearer to the old route. Due to miscalculation a tear gas canister greased my left foot but with no damage. After an hour and a half of confrontation most of us returned to the village leaving a dozen or so of youngsters to continue the confrontation.

Nabi Saleh

8-Year-Old Girl Is Palestine's Newest Citizen Journalist
Jana Tamimi is the West Bank's youngest citizen journalist and is documenting the resettlement of her town by Israeli settlers.
short video report about Jana Tamimi who is documenting Israel's occupation of Nabi Saleh. Jana is 8 years old and been participating in Nabi Saleh's protests for several years.
https://screen.yahoo.com/nowthis/8-old-girl-palestines-newest-220519784.html
05/12/2014 As today’s weekly demonstration was about the end and the youth were about to disperse, an IDF officer and a sniper started walking towards them. This ignited some stone throwing and one of the boys was shot with live ammunition (“tutu”) in his leg. Only then IDF forces left the scene. The office and sniper were carrying only stun grenades and live weapons with them. Other than the clear attempt to provoke the demonstrators, this is another example of how IDF soldiers’ are increasingly using live ammunition to disperse demonstrations in Nabi Saleh and other villages.

Haim Schwarczenberg: In the aftermath of the death of Ziad Abu ‘Ein, residents of Nabi Saleh took the streets to protest his killing and carry on his fight against land annexations and settlements. Abu ‘Ein died shortly after an Israeli soldier assaulted him during a peaceful march in Turmus’aya the day before. He was the Palestinian minister in charge of the popular struggle against the wall and the settlements, and was admired by many for his integrity. Villagers and solidarity activists marched from the center of Nabi Saleh towards its main entrance carrying posters with the slain minister’s photo, and also chanting the names of the village’s own martyrs, Mustafa and Rushdi Tamimi, killed by the Israeli army during local protests. The IDF attempted to disperse the protesters using tear gas canisters. No major injuries reported.

Avi Shavit "The weekly demo in kufr #Qaddum is as violent as ever, with barrages of gas, rubber coated bullets aimed at unarmed protesters, putrid skunk water sprayed on houses and trees with intent of terrorizing the entire village for their just protest against the road block and land theft. But the village knows how to answer these hostile and aggressive intruders with resistance and they know it well.

IDF escalates violence towards protesters: In recent weeks, I have witnessed on several occasions a worrying trend in the way the IDF opts to handle popular protests in the West Bank: In addition to tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets, the army now deploys well-positioned snipers that target protesters with live ammunition, hence the recent sharp rise in injuries (many of them severe) from bullets.

------------------------------------
Don’t say we didn’t know #431

The IDF has increased the use of live ammunition against Palestinians demonstrating or throwing stones.

On Thursday, 20th November, 2014, an IDF jeep drove into Deir El-Hattab (east of Nablus). The soldiers claim that stones were thrown at them. They shot live bullets towards children in the vicinity. A youth standing nearby was hurt in his leg by a live bullet. He was taken to hospital.

On Friday, 28th November, 2014, the weekly demonstration against closure of the access road to Kufr Qaddum (west of Nablus), took place. Soldiers nearby shot tear gas towards the demonstrators. Afterwards, they shot rubber coated bullets and live, 0.22” caliber ammunition. Two demonstrators were injured in their chests, and one of them in the hand, too. They were taken to hospital. Ten more demonstrators were injured by rubber coated bullets. Four required hospitalization.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 432

What actually happened there?

On Sunday, November 30, 2014, Mahmoud Al Kadi of Rahat was arrested. Before his arrest he called his family from a bus stop near Sderot and said, "I'm on my way home". As he failed to arrive, his family called him a few times to find out where he was. Finally a policeman answered and informed them that he was in custody at the Kiryat Gat police station. A relative who arrived at the station with some food for him heard him screaming. The policemen notified a friend of his: "Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock he will be brought before a judge for extension of remand". While Al Kadi's wife waited for him at the court, she received a phone call informing her that her husband had committed suicide and that she should come to receive his body.

The family came to the police station and demanded an autopsy, in order to know the cause of death. The police refused. The family appealed to the court, requesting an autopsy. The judge ruled to have the autopsy. The police contested. The judge accepted the contestation. The family turned to the district court and continued to demand that a pathologist on its behalf be present at the autopsy. The district court accepted the demand and ruled that a Jenin pathologist be present. After the autopsy it was ruled that the report be issued in two weeks. On Thursday evening, following the autopsy, Mahoumd was buried.

Palestine-Israel - The joint struggle contribute to the shift in the domination within the Israeli capitalist ruling elite*


Israel was built mainly by the national socialists who owned 75% of the economy at 1949. Due to the dependence on imperial powers the so called socialist elite invested a lot in building the Zionist-capitalist elite to which it lost the power in 1977. The interest conflicts within the Zionist-capitalist elite started to change balance between the small tycoons section that supported the Zionist wish to transfer the Palestinians out and the capitalist section that integrated in the neo-liberal globalization who wish to exploit the Palestinians and the workers of neighboring countries. The restructuring of power relations in the global capitalism after the last crisis had its Israeli expression in the near bankruptcy of the Tycoon elite and the present collapse of the government coalition. The economic damage already resulted from the B.D.S. which is enhanced by the joint struggle seems to hasten the shift in the balance of powers.


Bil'in

Haitham Al Khatib:"Today's demo was dedicated to AL QOUDS. The participants were Palestinians,Israeli and ‪#‎Internationale‬ ‪#‎Activists‬.We all decided to march towards AL ‪#‎QOUDS‬ to put an end to WALLS and ‪#‎CHECKPOINTS‬. Although the soldiers were not violent more than usual,they threw hundreds of tears gas and bullets at us.
There were dozens of protestors suffering from it. "They intentionally threw gas DIRECTLY at me with a clear intention to cause damage to me.
EVERYONE who truly cherishes FREEDOM and JUSTICE should have the RESPONSIBILITY to denounce ‪#‎ISRAELI‬ VIOLENCE ,OPPRESSION,and CRIMES:
WE will never give up our STRUGGLE for our LEGITIMATE HUMAN RIGHTS!
Bil'in today - 9 Israelis with the anarchists against the separation wall, many internationals (including A French delegation that visited the village of Bil'in with Mayor Onglavil Mr. Jean Doris, the delegation participated in the march, as an expression of solidarity with the Palestinian People and Bilin village).and Bil'iners - in spite the "competing" demo in Qalandia, demonstrated west of the village. Though the Israeli state forces succeeded to block us from even approaching the route of the older (dismantled) separation fence, because of the strong wind from the north, they failed to disperse us though they showered us with tear gas canisters.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10203186102714443&set=pcb.10203186109794620

Friday in Bil'in, 7 Israelis "Paying the rent" for the pleasure of immigrants who are living in Palestine... and 10 internationals joined the locals in the demonstration against the separation wall and occupation, confronted the Israeli state armed forces. As usual lately, when we just marched within the village lands, the barrage of tear gas started. Due to a friendly wind our way was only blocked but we were not dispersed. After about an hour of confrontation and a change in the direction of the wind most of us returned to the built area of the village.

Al-Maasara

21-11-2014, The weekly demonstration against settlements and apartheid wall with slogans condemning the Israeli siege on Jerusalem started at the city center and moved towards the village entrance blocked by a huge number of Israeli soldiers . As the protesters got close, the soldiers fired a massive tear gas and sound bomb attack to push demonstrators back.
Israeli new settlement plans will prevent the southern villages of the city of Bethlehem from reaching their city leaving them in total isolation .
Popular resistance committees in the area said that they will not stop before they free their village and reclaim their stolen lands.

Occupied Palestine, Nabi Saleh 21 November 2014
Nariman AL Tamimi, Asid and Basel Al Rimawi were shot by Israeli live bullets today at Al Nabi Saleh village
Nariman is currently having an operation in her foot, which was hit by a live bullet. Asid Al Rimawi 15 and Basel Al Rimawi 24 were hit by live bullets while the Israeli army was violently suppressing the weekly demonstration at AL Nabi Saleh which started from Al Shuhada square in the center of the village and was heading towards the village lands confiscated by the Israeli occupation.
tens of international solidarity activists and Palestinians from the village and the surrounding villages took part in this demonstration.
The demonstration was under the title (Jerusalem is calling) and aimed to mark the second anniversary of the killing of Rushdi Al Tamimi by the Israeli army. The demonstrators chanted against the occupation and illegal colonial settlements and for Jerusalem, Palestinian political prisoners an martyrs
Once the demonstrators reached the Israeli army checkpoint at the entrance of the village, the Israeli soldiers started shooting live and rubber bullets in addition to gas and metal bombs. Nariman was injured with a bullet (called Tutu) in her foot and was immediately taken to Palestine health compound. A 25 year old man and a 15 year old boy from the village of Beit Rima were also injured by live bullets from the same type (tutu)and were taken to Yaser Arafat hospital in Salfit. Tens of demonstrators were hit by metal-coated rubber bullets and asphyxiation as a result of the Israeli gas bombs.

Haim Schwarczenberg: "Marking the second anniversary to the killing of Rushdi Tamimi by the IOF, residents of Nabi Saleh, including Rushdi’s family members marched to protest his killing and the routine killing of Palestinians by the Israeli army. The IOF fired live ammunition, injuring three protesters – two from neighboring Beit Rima and another woman who was sustained gunshot wound to her leg and was taken to hospital in Ramallah for treatment." http://schwarczenberg.com/?p=1674

Ni'lin continue to resist Israeli occupation and apartheid 28.112014 - one guy, 21 years old got shot in the stomach with a rubber coated steel bullet from close range in Ni'lin, as clashes continued until 03:00pm, in spite of the several attempts to shoot and cash protesters, luckily no one got caught.
soon full report at http://www.nilin-village.org/
This weeks demonstration started like all other weeks after the Friday prayer under the olive trees that grow in the outskirts of the village of Ni’lin. As every week the demonstration proceeded to march towards the separation wall carrying Palestinian flags and chanting slogans against the wall and in solidarity with the Palestinian struggling at the Al-Aqsa mosque.

However the situation in the village has been escalating since June of this year Israeli soldiers were waiting for the protesters as they approached the wall. Before the demonstration had arrived at it’s destination the soldiers attacked the protest with tear gas canisters fired straight towards the protesters as well as rubber coated steel bullets. The clashes continued until three in the after noon when the protestors managed to push the soldiers back towards the wall.

Since June 2014 the Israeli soldiers have been attacking Ni’lins Friday demonstration near habituated house and sometimes even inside the village, chasing protesters with jeeps and shooting at houses. We believe this is an attempt to make the villagers condemn the demonstrations and thereby making them stop.

Many new tactics have been put in place to make the Ni’lin demonstrations come to an end. One such tactic has been to let snipers shoot protestors in the legs in order for them to be easier to catch for the soldiers. Since June of this year 13 protesters have been shot in the legs but so far only one has been arrested. The military has also been adding more snipers over the course of the months. To start with they were using one sniper during demonstrations but now that number has grown to three.

The Israeli military's treatment of Ni’lin and it’s villagers are aided by the fact that the town has received no media coverage in more than a year and a half. This has led to Ni’lin being a testing ground for new military tactics against demonstrations.

Friday 21.11.2014
The mad armed forces showered the place with skunk water including the non participants who came back from the olive harvest, fired live ammunition while aiming at demonstrators and cursing out loud at us.
Then, the village answered.
Already one boy injured by tutu bullets fired on the hundreds of resident protesters in the weekly demo against the occupation in kufr Qaddum.
Dozens of Israeli soldiers heavily armed firing and storming us inside the village, and the ppl stand defiant.
Amnon Lotan https://www.facebook.com/amnonlotan/posts/10152859008237037
Today over 200 local participants matched in Kufr Qaddum, along with a couple internationals and 4 israelis.
The army invaded the village on the main road early, with a few dozen soldiers, with gips, gas cannons, skunk and tutu rifles. In the first hour before and after the march started they were very violent, firing all the above all over the main street.
At least two were shot and treated for tutu bullet injuries.
About an hour or so after the march began, the soldiers showed more restraint, and began to retreat even before the heavy rain set in. This led to the ppl burning even more tires than usual, taking advantage of a strong westerly wind that blew it all into Kdumim.
All in all, moral was very high.

28-11-14 - Israeli army just shot a European solidarity activist in the chest with live ammunition at the weekly demo against the occupation in kufr Qaddum! There was no warning and the invading soldiers were not in any danger. Over 200 local protesters with a dozen Jews and internationals keep an unarmed standoff in front of the army inside the village.

28/11/14 Blocking the Jerusalem - Jericho road
Nabi Mosa occupied Palestine, demonstration faced by huge number of Israeli soldiers and police, demonstrations called for the end of occupation, freeing jerusalem and the stopping of bedouin displacement in the area. --- Palestinian popular committees accompanied by international solidarity activists succeeded today to block the Jerusalem - Jericho road to restrict the Zionist colonists and soldiers movement. The peaceful protest was faced and suppressed by a big number of heavily armed Israeli soldiers of all units who used tear gas canisters and stun grenades to disperse and oppress the peaceful protesters and prevent them from blocking the high way.
The main goals of the protest were to shed more light on the ongoing displacement of the Palestinian Bedouins from that area (H1), to confirm that occupied Jerusalem is a Palestinian capital and Palestinian have the full right to enter Jerusalem city freely .

------------------------------------------------------
Don’t say we did not know #428
On Tuesday, 21st October, 2014, Border Police units (combat soldiers) came to the Bedouin East Jerusalem neighborhood, A-Za’im – Za’atara. The residents are West Bank ID holders, and landowners, even though Israel annexed the neighborhood to Jerusalem. They are allowed to continue living there but are prohibited from entering the rest of Jerusalem.
The soldiers demolished three homes and an ancient cave used as a sheepfold.
Twenty one people were made homeless.
The next day the soldiers returned and confiscated tents donated by the Red Cross, following the demolition.

Don’t say we did not know #429
On Sunday, 09/11/2014, a group of Palestinian children from Hebron were on their way home from school, when a settler driving by stopped near them and pushed one of them. The boy fell and was injured.
International volunteers in the area approached border units policemen in the area and asked them to intervene. The policemen refused. As the settler drove off, the policemen waved him goodbye instead of arresting him.

Don’t say we didn’t know #430

On Thursday, November 6th, 2014, IDF soldiers arrived at the Palestinian village El’Aqaba (near Tubas) and demolished a home and a sheepfold. Nine people were made homeless.

Palestine-Israel - the joint struggle in turbulent times.


The popular unarmed struggle of Palestinian communities joint by Israeli anarchists against the wall and others is not a struggle for the "national liberation" or "self determination" of the Palestinian nation. It is the struggle of Palestinian people which overwhelm majority of them are working people against the threat of transfer, and the suppression and exploitation by the Israeli Zionist settler colonialist project. No one of the involved in the struggle who are not in the Palestinian elite have illusions about the Palestinian elite and the state they will rule and manage after the end of the occupation. No one of the involved in the struggle believe that the end of the direct occupation will solve the 1948 Nacba and the refugees problems. However, they still prefer the end of the occupation and independence from Israel, over the direct Israeli rule, as it will not be an agent of transfer or of so brutal suppression and exploitation.

Bil'in

Seventeen Israelis and a lot of international friends from various countries joined more than usual Bil'iners in the Friday demonstration. Israel's armed forces took positions with their armored jeeps along the old route of the separation fence to prevent the protesters from even coming near the liberated areas which were behind the old route. (Not even to think about approaching the wall built on the border of the freed lands. When we started to go down from the built area of the village towards the old route, the soldiers began to shower us with tear gas. Because of the south east wind we could stay in the fields just beyond the range of the tear gas guns. From time to time the soldiers tried to come nearer and push us away but were repulsed by the tear gas carried by the wind and the tear gas canisters "returned to the sender" by the youngsters.
After more than an hour of total failure - including forays and retreats of the armed forces, they began firing rubber bullets but failed to seriously injure any of the demonstrators.

31/10/2014 , Al Masara occupied Palestine
Occupation forces suppressed a demonstration in Al Ma'asarah and demonstrators blocked the street 3157 in solidarity with Al Aqsa.
Occupation forces suppressed the weekly march in Al Ma'asarah and prevented access to the confiscated land. The demonstrators closed the street 60 and prevented settlers from using the street that connects the settlements, on the village lands, with each other.
The demonstration comes in solidarity with Al Aqsa, which is exposed to the ugliest crimes of the occupation and the settlers. The demonstration was called for by the Popular Committees Against the Wall and settlements in the village with the participation of dozens of international activists and villagers.
The Peoplar Committees in the village confirmed that the popular resistance in the village will continue until defeating the occupation of the Palestinian territories, denouncing the occupation fierce campaigns on the Al-Aqsa Mosque and called on the international community to act to end the occupation.
7/11/14
"Seventeen Israelis and a lot of international friends from various countries joined more than usual Bil'iners in the Friday demonstration. Israel's armed forces took positions with their armored jeeps along the old route of the separation fence to prevent the protesters from even coming near the liberated areas which were behind the old route.

"After more than an hour of total failure - including forays and retreats of the armed forces, they began firing rubber bullets but failed to seriously injure any of the demonstrators.
"Upon arrival of the march to the entrance of the village, there were dozens of Israeli soldiers at the village entrance forming a human barrier to prevent the demonstrators from reaching the confiscated lands. When the demonstrators tried to reach the lands, occupation forces assaulted them and threatened them of arresting if the demonstration does not stop. The demonestrators continued chanting against the occupation in front of the soldiers."

31/10/2014 , Kufur kadom, occupied Palestine
Tens were suffocated in Kufur kadom
Friday, tens of cases were suffocated due to the occupation suppressing Kufur Kadom weekly anti-settlement demonstration. The participatants and villagers chanted slogans condemning the settlement in solidarity with Al Aqasa. Israeli army attacked the demonstration with gas grenades and rubber bullets injuring dozens of demonestrators with suffocation. All of them were treated in the field. The demonstration’s coordinator stressed that today’s march came to support the Al Aqsa, which is under Zionist fierce attack. He also noted that the occupation is deliberately targeting houses with grenades gas and wastewater as a form of collective punishment because of the continuing in demonstrations.

7-11-14 Today was extraordinary in kufr Qaddum.
During recent talks between the army and the Palestinian DCO, the army suggested to open the village's Road partially/gradually, in exchange for ending the protests. In particular the army said it might open the road partially next week, if the village's stops all rock throwing and tire burning today.
So today a hundred locals, a dco official, extra press, 4 Jews 4 Europeans and 4 Koreans participated in a perfectly peaceful and short March towards the road block, and the army blocked us with a symbolic yet threatening force. Moral was as high as ever and all wait expectantly to see if the army lives up to its promise.

Don't say we did not know 426#

The IDF continues harming Palestinian residents of the Jordan valley.

On Monday, 20th October, 2014, they demolished a family's home and four sheepfolds in Jiftlik. On Wednesday, 22nd October, 2014, the IDF evacuated residents of Ras El Ahmar, near 'Atuf, at 6.00 a.m., due to military exercises in the area. At around 6:00 p.m. the residents returned. The same day, the IDF evacuated residents near Hammam El Malih, below the Crusader monastery. The inhabitants returned at 2:00 p.m.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Wednesday, 22nd October, 2014, government representatives escorted by police came to Bedouin areas and demolished homes.

In A-Zarnug, north of Road 25, they demolished a home. North of the township 'Ar'ara they demolished another one. In Bir Hadaj, near Kibbutz Revivim, they demolished three homes.



Don't say we didn’t know 427

The Bedouin village Umm El-Kheir, situated in the South Hebron hills, has suffered for years from policies of demolition and harassment from residents of the settlement Carmel. On Monday, 27th October, 2014, IDF and police forces arrived in the western part of the village and demolished four homes and two outhouses. Twenty people were made homeless. They went on to demolish a tabun (traditional outdoor oven, used for baking bread) - without a demolition order - that the settlers had demanded of the Court be demolished. Two days later, the soldiers returned and demolished the tabun, while it was being repaired.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For quite some time, we have been witnessing the phenomenon of arrest used as punishment - of both Bedouin and Palestinian Israeli citizens. This is neither for interrogation nor detention prior to imprisonment. The incarceration continues long after any interrogation has finished. Lamentably, the courts authorize these policies.

During a home demolition in Wadi El Na'am, on 14th October, 2014, the police arrested five village residents (Re. Don't say #425). They are still in custody. Incidentally, those arrested in a demonstration near Hura, at the end of November 2013, are also still under house arrest.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the back ground of Israel not hiding any more its true nature


Al along the years israel tried to neutralize the pressures of the more enlightened people by hiding its brute racism and and murderous activities recruiting the memory of the holocaust as justification for every heinous act of it when revealed. However, as the masquerade was exposed last years and more and more are disillusioned from the "Zionist dream", the restrained are loosened fast. The rightists preach their extreme racist ideology in the open. The "para militarists" settlers get freer hands. The transfer of Palestinians both within the 1948 borders and these occupied in 1967 is done in the open. Though it is still restricted mainly to the Israeli area of the Bedouins in the south and the C agricultural regions of the 1967, the "gloves" were removed. In the same new mode, the repression of the non armed popular struggles intensified last few weeks and we can not guess which will be - if at all, the limit of the new repression mode.

Arkib (1948 Bedouins), Bil'in, Dahams (Ramla 1948 village), East Jerusalem (occupied 1967 mainly Sheikh Jarah, Shuafat, Silwan, and the Bedouins of the region) Ma'asarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills, and the Jordan valey Palestinians.

20-10-2014, Ofer Israeli military court finds Abdullah Abu Rahma , a well known activist and coordinator of popular resistance committee in Bil'in, guilty of obstruction of military vehicles . In 2012 ,Abu Rahma among other activists demonstrated in Bil'in against Israeli army bulldozers . Bulldozers were trying to block the road with huge concrete blocks who also serve as a shield and secure post for army snipers and soldiers. Abu Rahma was arrested back then and released a few hours later as he made bail. A year later, Abu .Rahma Rahmeh was not called for any court hearing . All eye witnesses confirm the Abdullah just stood on the bulldozer but he never posed danger to any Israeli armed to-the-neck soldier.
Abu Rahma an EU recognized human rights defender was detained twice before, though what he was doing was considered legal by The EU.
1-12-2014 is the date when Abdullah will receive his new sentence..!

Bil'in

Friday in Bil'in. 10 Israelis, with 40 internationals joined the villagers in the olive harvest procession. The Israeli armed forces tried to block our way to the liberated lands between the removed separation fence and the new separation wall. We managed to march on the fields paths and confronted the army jeeps so in spite the teat gas that the north east carried away we succeeded to make them retreat and came near the wall.
After a long confrontation we returned to the village - tired but with satisfaction.

Qaddum

The weekly demo against the Israeli occupation today at kufr qaddum.
Lots of tear gas grenades fitted directly. skunk juice used to stink protesters and in particular the houses around. And many rubber coated steel bullets fired on us.
Nearly 200 participated! There was One injury. Happy olive harvest season to all
Tens of Palestinians required medical treatment today due to cases of suffocation in Kufr Qaddoum. Tens were wounded today, Friday 17 October, due to suffocation during demonstration in Kufr Qaddoum due to attempts by the Occupation to suppress the demonstration in Kufr Qaddoum against Israeli settlement and which brought about a victory for al-Aqsa.

The demonstration in Kufr Qaddoum started at Omar bin Khitab mosque with the participation of tens of families from the village holding flags of Palestine and denouncing the belligerent campaign directed at al-Aqsa.Upon the arrival of protesters to a road which had been closed, the Israeli Occupation Forces attacked by shooting gas canisters, rubber coated metal bullets and spraying sewage water, leading to the suffocation of tens of protesters. The coordinator of the rally stressed that the Kufr Qaddoum march had brought victory to the al-Aqsa Sanctuary which is being subjected to brutal aggression by settlers and the Israeli Occupation Forces. He noted that the occupation deliberately sprayed houses with waste water instead of digging up the road and throwing dirt on people's homes.

"At the weekly demo against the occupation in kufr qaddum today, we were near 100 locals, 5 internationals and 3 Jews.
the Israeli army and the locals were more passive than usual today, partly due to the olive harvest the army took positions in a house, outside by the road, and up on the hill above us. Dozens of gas canisters were fired directly at us, we set some tires afire, and thankfully there were no injuries nor arrests."
Open the village road! Free Palestine!
Happy olive season :) "

Palestine Israel, The joint struggle already eleven years old and continue


A physical confrontation between between the Israeli armed forces (and settlers) and a joint crowd of Israeli Jews and Palestinian activists in the 1967 occupied territories is so common that people do not sense its unique nature. In addition to PR disaster for the Zionist transfer project it also forced Israel to mostly exclude shooting with life ammunition fire to kill non armed Palestinian demonstrators whenever Israelis might participate. In addition to the usual locations of joint struggles, addition places Palestinians start protests we learn of from the media. The Israeli media to which the agreement with the Hamas about the end of the rocketing was not revealed, come again and again with facts and generals opinions which can only be explained as rationalization to changes forced on Israel in the agreement.

Bil'in

Friday 3.10.14 in Bil'in was in eve and in the beginning of olive picking. In addition to seven Israelis and dozen international only had about a dozen and a half Bil'iners participated in the demo. Some regular participants and especially the young stone throwers Shabab were absent due to the beginning of the olive picking season. For reasons best known to them, the Israeli armed forces have initiated an unusual step. They have stood in a line of soldiers and border police at a Square just beyond route of the old (and dismantled) separation fence, forbade us to move forward towards Abu Lemon garden and the separation wall.

After a long while in which the confrontation was only verbal, Some of us started to walk toward the wall along the old route of the dismantled separation fence. In response, the armed forces called as reinforcement an armed unit in a jeep that tried in vein to locate us on the gravel roads crisscrossing the freed area and shoot in random few tear gas grenades. When the lack of an ongoing conflict start to bore us, demonstrators began to return to the village.
This Friday, a rare thing occurred. It was the firs time in long months that I had not got even a trickle of tear gas nor smelt it.

Friday 10.10.14
Before the demo, soldiers entered the area between the old and new wall routes, and set fire to a small building. Then they waited for the demonstrators on the village side of the new wall, and while the latter were still gathering in the Abu Lamun grove, the soldiers arrested a Palestinian demonstrator and drove the others away with gas. The demonstrators regrouped at the old wall route. The soldiers came there too, and kept chasing demonstrators away with gas, advancing as far as the built area of the village. Despite the small Shabab presence, the soldiers didn't only shoot gas, but also used live bullets to scare non violent demonstrators away. They also put a sound bomb under a disabled person's car, and it broke down due to the explosion. The demonstrator who was arrested at the beginning of the demo was released later, after being beaten to the point of bleeding from his face.
Bil'in 10:10:14, Attack of the Israeli armed forces on the Friday demo that we have not experienced for several years. Ten Israelis, and about two dozen international converged with the Bil'in activists at the Abu Lemon oak grove near the separation Wall. Before the march began, soldiers who were stationed near the oak grove arrested the Popular Committee member Mohammed Khatib and beat him to a pulp. They flooded the other demonstrators with tear gas. They also exploded a stun grenade under Rani Burnat car, before he could settle down in his wheelchair out of the car and immobilize the car which was later toed to the village. Gradually, they chased us with armored jeeps they pushed towards the village. We succeeded few time to regroup, but they pushed again and again till we entered the village. Attack like that had not happened more than two years. After over an hour and a half of pursuit the armed forces released Mohammed and left the the lands of the village not before firing live ammunition and arresting a boy who collected the used aluminum canisters.
