The political arena in Palestine occupied by Israel and Israel did not take the winter hibernation. The Arab Spring seems to continue during both the summer, the Autumn, and even the winter. The Hamas, who supported the nonviolent joint popular struggle in Bil'in from the beginning in spite of extreme fundamentalists objections to it, adopted now the the nonviolent popular struggle as the main strategy. Israeli escalation of repression of this and the joint struggle is expected. In spite of the uncertainty we continued another week of joint struggle: Beit Ummar, Bil'in, East Jerusalem-Al-Kuds (Silwan,Shu'fat,Sheikh Jarrah), Al-Ma’sara, Naby Saleh, Ni'ilin, kafr a-Dik, Kafr Qadum, Qalandiya, South Of Hebron Hills. Within Israel the social justice struggle continue in localized struggles with a moving focus. The air is vibrating with the expectancy of a dramatic eruption.

"Two days before Xmas day, almost 20 Israelis, a few internationals and two Santas joined the weekly Palestinian demonstration against the wall and occupation in Bil'in. With bells a ringin', we marched to the wall, and as soon as Santa touched the barbed wire (that protects the other barbed wire that protects the concrete wall that protects the Israeli snipers that protect the settlers watching over from the other side), before we could even chant "hura hura Falasteen", Santa and his entourage had a barrage of gas canisters shot directly at them, just barely failing to repeat the military achievement of killing a protester in Nebi Salah two weeks earlier. Due to a local wedding the shabab decided on a short demo and, with very few exceptions, refrained from throwing stones at the people who steal their lands and try to kill them, but this didn't prevent the army from shooting several more barrages of gas canisters directly at protesters, which, only by sheer chance or Xmas spirit, ended up whistling in their ears rather than crushing their skulls. After some exchange of insults with the settlers hiding behind the soldiers and a brief excursion between the barbed wire and the wall, the protesters returned home early, as planned, with a few iron poles appropriated from the fence as an early Xmas present courtesy of the Occupation."
