The feeling of the nearing immanent disaster of the 1967 war spoils start to color the joint struggle with a special Spring aroma. It seems that even the sting of the tear gas and the pains from rubber coated bullet, batons and tear gas missiles are a bit milder. Even the putrid smell of the skunkish water ("The Smell of Israel") is not stinking so much as in the past. The media and even the state politicians mention our struggles more and more as responsible at least in part to their problems. The inconsistency in their repression steps, express their helplessness in their efforts to put end to the joint struggle restricted by the arena being open to international media.
The struggle continue and in the background some compromises with the Bedouins to be evicted from most of their lands are proposed.
Over 30 Israelis and a bunch of internationals joined the Palestinian demonstration in Bil'in to commemorate the Nakba, Naksa, and ongoing ethnic cleansing in ever larger parts of Palestine. The demonstrators carried two man-sized cutouts of the map of Palestine marking the lands lost by Palestinians in 1948 and 1967. The protesters who carried the maps were skunked, but the man-sized Palestine cutouts shielded them from the putrid water. Then one demonstrator returned to the soldiers an unspent tear gas canister from an earlier demonstration, which exploded in their midst. The soldiers, obviously trying to explain that they suffer no shortage of tear gas canisters, shot several loads aimed directly at the protesters, causing a few small bush fires. While some shabab diverted the attention of the soldiers with stones, another group of protesters cut some electrical equipment from the fence, came back to show the soldiers their booty, and quickly declared the demonstration over. Even after all the demonstrators left the area, the army kept shooting tear gas canisters trying to set the fields on fire.

March to Jerusalem #5 June http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0spoiaZLYs0
Weekly demonstration in Ma'sara, 3rd of June 2011 The rally was organized by the Popular Committee Against the Wall and settlements in the village two days before the anniversary of the forty-fourth anniversary of Israeli occupation. The march began from the center of the village after Friday prayers in which many of the people,international activists and Israelis carried Palestinian flags and denounced the occupation and illegal settlements. The occupying forces attacked the demonstrators physically, pushing them back and preventing them from reaching their lands, imposing a security cordon by declaring it a closed military zone. The protesters said the popular resistance will continue until the legitimate demands of removal of the wall and settlements and the end of the occupation are met.
Friday 3-6-2011 Another long afternoon and evening of struggle.

In the past few weeks we have witnessed the attempts of the Israeli Government to annex East Jerusalem, being intensified. These growing attempts are seriously jeopardizing any possibility for future agreement. During 'Lag Ba'Omer' celebrations, Jerusalem municipality sponsored an event in Sheikh Jarrah attended by thousands. Only few days ago four government Ministers participated in the inauguration of a new gigantic settlement at the heart of the Palestinian neighborhood of Ras El-Amud.
South Hebron Mountains
Radical activists - including some AAtW ones, joined Palestinians of the region who persist in the struggle to frustrate the efforts to evict them.
About 6 thousands participated in the Zionist left demonstration that understand pragmatically they need to give back most of 1967 war gains if they want to keep the gains of the 1948 war. The "communist" party that support that wish with minor corrections was part of the initiative. The most radical Solidarity initiative that wish to give back all the 1967 war gains and some more with few anti Zionists had a block that colored the demo with militant slogans and chants in Arabic.
