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.

International peace activist Robert Martin helped demonstrators distinguish the fire after suffering effects of tear gas.

Almaasara

17-10-2014, Almaasara occupied Palestine. The weekly demonstration against settlements and apartheid wall started at the city center and moved towards the village entrance blocked by a huge number of Israeli soldiers . As the protestors got close, the soldiers fired a massive tear gas and sound bomb attack to push demonstrators back, yet a few brave men and women kept pushing and reached route 60 ( the main road connecting settlements in the area ), and blocked it for an hour before the soldiers viciously reopened it.
Popular resistance committees in the area said that they will not stop before they free their village and reclaim their stolen lands.

24-10-2014, Al Masara -occupied Palestine.
Occupation forces suppressed the weekly demonestration in Al Masara and prevented the demonestratores from accessing to the lands confiscated. This demonestration, which organized by the Popular Committees Against the Wall and Settlement in the village, is in solidarity with the Al-Aqsa Mosque and as a condemnation of incursions carried out by the occupation and the settlers from one hand, and of the actions of hitting Palestinians with cars by settlers.
The demoenstration began at the center of the village with the participation of dozens of villagers and foreigners. They waved Palestinian flags and filled the village streets. Demonstrators chanted in solidarity with the prisoners and with Al- Aqsa Mosque.

The popular committees confiremed that they will continue resistting the wall and settlements in the village that popular resistance will until defeating the occupation. The also demanded the international community to intervene to stop the violations of the occupation forces against the Palestinian people.

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.

Palestine-Israel,The joint struggle and the vicious Israeli transfer efforts


Arkib (1948 Bedouins), Bil'in, Dahams (Ramla 1948 village), East Jerusalem (occupied 1967 mainly Sheikh Jarah, Shuafat, and the Bedouins of the region) Ma'asarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills - the main locations of the joint struggles the anarchists against the wall are involved in. As the Israeli pretending of striving for any kind of peace was exposed, the transfer efforts are intensified. It seems the hazards taking and gambling of Israel on the continuation of the occupation is increasing. The Israeli government count on the pro Israeli lobby of the US right and the strategic value of Israel in the present troubled time and recklessly disregard the mounting international pressure... though the Israeli officials and the public keep worrying in public about the economic and political pressures.


Bil'in

Friday 26.9.14: Nine Israelis, ten international and dozen Bil'iners (due to the competition of the demonstration at the same hours in Azaria in solidarity with the Bedouins) We made our presence in challenge of the presence of the armed forces of the State of Israel. When the armed forces decided that the confrontation is prolonged excessively, they started firing tear gas at us. Due to the changing wind currents, and our broad spread, they had to send at us their armored Jeeps and the bullies in order to force us to return to the village. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?

Ma'sara

Occupation forces Suppressed Al Ma'sara march which was set up by the popular committees against the wall on a weekly basis. Israeli occupation forces prevented the march from reaching confiscated land. The march raised slogans condemning the daily crimes committed by the occupation against the Palestinian.

South Hebron hills

Harassment of Palestinian farmers and shepherds in South Hebron hills by both settlers and the army continues. These forces take over their lands and prevent them from accessing it.
This coming Saturday, September 27, we will be heading again to our activity in several locations in the area, accompany Palestinian farmers and shepherds to their lands and help them stand up for their rights. Without the presence of activists, many farmers don't get the chance to cultivate their land. There is a direct link between the number of activists who come to accompany the farmers and their ability to live a relatively normal life.
Today (Saturday 27.9.14) at the South Hebron Hills, accompanying Palestinians shepherds to their land - a quiet morning with 6 herds in Um-el-Arais. Later we joined a small demonstration in Susya, near a new tent the Settlers had built on Palestinian land. In both places we met Rami, a Druze officer in the civil administration. The best collaborator the Israeli army can have to sustain the Occupation.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 421

On Sunday, September 14, 2014, four Palestinian shepherds from Qawawis village in the South Hebron Hills were grazing their herd near the illegal outpost Mitzpe Yair, accompanied by two international volunteers. They were grazing in an area that is Palestinian-owned. Suddenly two settlers from the outpost appeared and assaulted one of the shepherds. The volunteers filmed the goings-on. Then the settlers attacked the volunteers, grabbed their cameras and smashed a volunteer's cell phone. The assailants then ran off to the outpost. The shepherds and their accompaniers returned to their village. A while later, policemen arrived at the village and detained the assaulted shepherd and the volunteers for questioning for several hours, since the attackers claimed to the police that stones had been hurled at them.

Don’t Say We Didn't Know 422
For nearly ten years now, the people of the Palestinian village Bil'in in the occupied West Bank have been struggling against the separation fence and the erection of the Jewish settlement of Modi'in Ilit on their lands beyond the fence. The Israeli army often assaults the village and arrests inhabitants in order to suppress their struggle and obtain information about the protest activists in the village.
On Sunday, September 14th, 2014, two boys from Bil'in, 15-year old Ibrahim and 13-year old Ahmad Abu Rahma were on their way to school in the village. Soldiers who had entered the village arrested Ibrahim. A military judge ruled he could be released on bail of 5000 NIS. The boys had not carried out any act of aggression against the soldiers.

Palestine-Israel: The joint struggle confront the transfer efforts of the Israeli settler colonialist project*.

Though Israel failed in its last open assault on the Gaza Strip, it still succeed in its transfer efforts. The drowning of a refugee ship with 450 mainly Gaza people reflect the partial success of Israel transfer efforts that for the never ended efforts since 1948. The siege on Gaza join the pressure on both Palestinians within the 1948 borders and that of the 1967. The big masses were driven out during the 1948 and 1967 wars, but efforts continued with all means possible. Some expelled by force some were moved within the border as pressure to "voluntary transfer". Within the 1967 borders, the Israeli efforts are targeted on the villages and Bedouins living in area C where the joint struggle to resist it is mainly focused in the South of Hebron Hills. And the joint struggle in Arkib, Dahamsh (1948 borders), and Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah (East Jerusalem) continue "as usual".

Bil'in

Friday 12-9-14 in. Bil'in: 6 Israeli and dozen internationals converged with the villagers at the Abu Lamun orchard. Before the demonstration started the Israeli state forces flooded the people with tear gas. Many went round the cloud of tear gas waking along the separation wall from a distance. As the wind changed the tear gas failed to drive the people away till military cars brought the soldiers nearer. Though there was no march or demo the commander threatened the people who were on the way to the village with arrests for participation in the "unlawful demo" that never really happened this Friday.
Any way, the Israeli activists paid this week their "rent" for the presence in Palestine.

Bil'in, Friday, 19-9-14 two stages of the demonstration in which 15 Israelis, 20 internationals, and local activists, converged near the separation wall in the Abu Lamun oaks groove and started to walk towards the near by separation wall.
The Israeli state forces did not like the location of the demo so they floated us with tear gas forcing us to go to the north - not far from the gate in the wall.
after a long while they did not like the second location which was out of the range of the tear gas grenades so they came with their armored cars shooting tear gas and bullets coated with rubber and arrested three of us - one from each nationality... The local one succeeded to escape and Israeli and the international activists were taken to a far away police station for "interrogation".

Ni'lin

Friday 19-9-2014 - Even before the demonstration began, soldiers and Border Police forces assembled next to the convergence point. Without warning or provocation on the part of those who came to demonstrate, the occupation forces began to charge.They used massive amounts of tear gas. A group of three soldiers ran into the village and at some point I realized that they marked me.I stopped and did not resist arrest. Only about 4 hours later they bothered to tell me that I was accused of violating the military order that marks the entire area a "closed Military zone". I kept silent, refused to sign any document without consulting a lawyer. I was locked up with another two charming protesters from Bil'in and we were released later that night under the condition that we will not return to the area in the next 15 days. Assuming that the military order was not written after the fact, I allow myself to suppose These six photos that were taken before the arrest were taken before the validity of the order!

Qaddum

At the weekly demo against the occupation in kufr Quaddum,
the village's electricity was cut off last night. 3500 ppl live with no electricity for one day so far, and it remains unclear whether this was a mere accident or sabotage.
Hopefully the power grid will be fixed soon.
Now in the demo the army is firing tons of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets in us, over 200 unarmed protesters demonstrating in the village.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 419
This is how it works: The Israeli authorities intend to create a new settlement in Nu'eima, north of Jericho, for Bedouins expelled from the E1 Area (between Jerusalem and Ma'ale Adumim settlement). In the meantime Bedouin dwellings are being demolished before alternative ones are even being prepared. On Thursday, August 28, 2014, Israeli soldiers came to the Bedouin neighborhood next to Palestinian village A-Zayyim east of Jerusalem, and demolished five dwellings and three sheep-pens. 38 persons remained homeless. This is the third demolition the army has carried out at the site in the past two years.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't Say We Didn’t Know 420

In a press news item, the Israel Land Authority reported having demolished seven Bedouin dwellings in the Negev. Another 18 homes were demolished by their own inhabitants. The locations of the demolitions were not specified. ILA inspectors habitually threaten Bedouins that if they do not demolish their own homes, the "job" will be done by the ILA and inhabitants will be charged with the cost of the demolition and debris removal. Some fear this and do their own demolition.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue in lower intensity: last Friday only 3 Israelis came to Bil'in demo


Bil'in-Ni'ilin-Ma'asara-Nabi Saleh-Qaddum-Sheikh Jarrah- south of Hebron Hills


The 50 days war on Gaza ended, after Israel begged for a cease fire and yielded to major demands of the Hamas (some kept in secret even from Israeli government ministers). Majority of Israelis admit that Israel did not win the war but hard to admit the Hamas had the upper hand. Ministers passed two weeks ago Cabinet classified document containing a proposal to place an international force in Gaza which may mean the end of Israel occupation of the Gaza strip and opening the Ghetto... and may be a precedent to what may be the end of occupying of the west bank). In Israel, the "radical" left is back to "normal"... though many more activists are contemplating joining the comrades who had already lost hope and emigrated. It seems the international pressures of the imperial powers and the advances of the boycott movement are bringing sooner than expected the end of 1967 occupation.

Sheikh Jarrah

For five years residents of Sheikh Jarrah struggle against settlers takeover of their homes.
During the five years of struggle, the neighborhood knew many demonstrations, and outrageous settlers attacks.
Now the State of Israel has finally found someone to blame.
In the next week Salah Diab, a leader of the fight in the neighborhood, will enter to prison term for eight months.
Saleh, accused of assault by settlers "neighbors". He claims that he was not there. The court criticized the improper conduct of the police during the investigation, but then chose to believe the version of the settlers and the judgment of Saleh determined.
On Friday 29.8.2014 we returned to Sheikh Jarrah to say farewell to Saleh and ensure that the struggle will continue. About 100 participated in the vigil and in the march in the neighborhood (including a contingent of five of us just fresh from the Bil'in demo.)

Palestine-Israel, The war assault on Gaza failed to bring the expected results and even back fired


The war Israel started with the Hamas was intended to keep it weaker but independent of the west bank authority. A month and a half and Israel cannot stop the Hamas firing of rockets on Israel. The Hamas raised its demand about the lifting of the siege (closer) and the Israeli prime minister failed go get the support of his coalition for the needed compromise. To diminish the losses and to save face Israel with US backing are passing the decision to the UN security council the Israeli ruling elite evaded successfully so many years. The mounting economic pressures create cracks in the Israeli ruling elite and even the populist coalition party head - the foreign minister, start to promote the end of the 1967 occupation. And the joint popular grass root struggle continue - within Israel at the Arkib Bedouins as focus, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Neby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills.

Bilin

In spite of the heightened level of harassment of the Israeli state forces during the Gaza war, the joint struggle of Israelis, internationals, and Bil'iners persist in the efforts to try to march towards the gate in the separation wall. The previous Friday 15.8.14 we succeeded to reach the gate and even stay there for a while in spite of harassment. This Friday, in spite of a relatively large contingent of the Israeli anarchist-communist Ahdut (Unity) the Israeli state forces stopped us and after a short verbal confrontation they flooded us with tear gas and we retreated.

22/08/2014 Israeli and international solidarity activists joined Palestinian residents of the Ramallah-district village of Nabi Saleh to protest against the ongoing massacre in Gaza. So far, over 2000 people have been killed in five weeks, the majority of whom were civilians.
The march, which began at the village's center, continued to the main road, where the IOF attempted to disperse it using barrages of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets. No major injuries reported.

Saturday 23.8.2014 like every other Saturday of the last weeks:
Protest against the war and the massacre in Gaza, Israeli activists protest in center Tel Aviv against the Israeli attack on Gaza, calling to end the war and the.occupation...
This Saturday the police changed their tactics: instead of mobile fences, they "mingled with the protesters at the national theater square. After about half an hour when the late comers arrived, the police "suggested" that the few hundreds of us will march (for security reasons) through the near by boulevard towards a more central intersection which is a less opened space - which we cheerfully accepted.

Palestine-Israel, Israel attack on Gaze ending with a defeat of its arrogant power show*


Israel started the attack on the Hamas to sabotage the Hamas compromise with the west bank authority, and restore a weakened Hamas independent rule in the Gaza strip. Hamas compromise was a response to Egyptian closer intended to dismantle the Hamas. The failed Israeli attack will force it to contribute its share to significantly open the closer of the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which was till the attack based on the bare minimal on the margin of humanitarian catastrophe. Whatever the details of the new cease fire and arrangements, the failure of Israel vicious assault to stop the Hamas from firing rockets on Israel is a significant "game changer". The failed attack on Gaza and the continuing popular struggle in the west bank are hastening the international pressures to end the occupation of the West bank and the closer of the Gaza strip.


Bil'in

As usual, Bil'in weekly demonstration took place today after the noon time prayers. About 20 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative and more than a dozen internationals joined the Bil'iners and a group of the neighboring village Safa. The special theme of the demonstration today was against the newest slaughters in Gaza and the killing by an Israeli sniper a youth of the nearby village in a last week demo there against the slaughters in Gaza. The Israeli army was particularly brutal in their repression of today's demonstration. The army attacked the protests with tear gas long before we even reached the wall. After their failed attempt to disperse us by shooting from behind the wall, They invaded with their jeeps the Bil'in lands freed only 3 years ago and started shooting tear gas from them. Many of us suffered from suffocation and temporary blindness as a result.

Over 1800 Palestinians were killed so far, about a quarter of them children. The IOF attempted to disperse the march with barrages of tear gas canisters and rubber coated steel bullets.

Over 200 unarmed dedicated demonstrators participated.
Today's first contact: snipers shoot two demonstrators in the leg and the back with silenced tutu bullets.seems Israel has a new widespread policy of firing at unarmed protesters.
Later shot a third protester. Also bombarded us with abrupt thick barrages of tear gas.
The shabab responded with some rocks and a lovely tire fire.
After two hours we dispersed.
