We cannot predict which community will be among the first to be in the front of the struggle - and it was not Bil'in. We cannot predict which one will persists in the struggle week after week, year after year... like Bil'in. When it happen, we can often understand, like why the small village of Nabi Saleh - which even was not victim of the separation fence, joined the persistent struggle. The participant of each of the on going struggles like El Araqib, Beit Ommar, Bil'in, Dahamash, Jaffa, Lod, Ma'asara, Nabi-Saleh, Ni'ilin, Sheikh Jarrah, Tel Aviv expresses solidarity with the uprising of the masses in Tunisia and Egypt.
"Jan 31 2011 08:15 AM The Israeli police and bulldozers are on their way right now to once more erase the village of El-Araqib".
"Will the brutality of the Israeli government, or justice prevail? Please do all you can to help the people of El Araqib stand in this important struggle. come stand with them, contact Israeli officials, embassies, your ambassadors in Israel, your representatives in your countries..."

They will remain in custody until tomorrow noon.
the sha'aban family has been leading the struggle against the demolitions in Dahamash, and has received much
harassment from the Lod police because of that. the violent incident from yesterday is definitely an extreme escalation by the police,
who used much force and tear gas in the family's house."

The Israeli state force was ready to disperse the demo... but a road accident happened at the usual location of confrontation.

Last Sunday, January 23rd, at 2AM, military forces violently arrested a 14 years old at his house in Nabi-Saleh. The boy was held handcuffed and blindfolded in the cold till morning, and was then taken to an 8 hours police interrogation. His lawyer, waiting outside the police station, was not allowed to meet the minor till only after 4 hours of the interrogation, and his parents were not informed (as a minor, his right, even according to the military law, is to be interrogated in the presence of his parents).
The military court (after outrageous failures of its own) might release him tomorrow, February 1st, to house arrest. One of the conditions for the release is to find two Israeli citizens to sign a bail for him.
