Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle in a world that will never be the same again*
The patient of the people who see the turmoil in the region loosing the patient but it is still far from a general rising both in the Israeli social struggle and in the occupied west bank. The Israeli state increase the threats of the activists on both sides and contemplating in public to qualitatively enhance the shooting policy. Meanwhile, targeting the young kids they started to arrest 7/8 years old too. The third intifada is gradually escalate from non violent struggle to still unarmed but a stone throwing one. The kids are throwing back tear gas canisters and the state forces are often testing their own medicine. In Israel, the activists of the social struggle are not yet many, but the marching is not just parade any more and the homes of the relevant ministers get frequent visits. It is still not sure if the masses will participate again as two years ago, but it may come sooner than later as the austerity measures are already felt.

In spite few old spent tear gas canisters thrown to the soldiers nothing was done by them more than threatening aiming of guns. Afterwards, the state force became active. They start with shooting tear gas, added opening the gate and started to pursue the scattered demonstrators.
Gradually most of the participant returned to the village - leaving behind few energetic youngster.

7th June 2013 | International Solidarity Movement, Ramallah Team | Nabi Saleh, Occupied Palestine
Today’s weekly protest in Nabi Saleh was met with skunk water and rubber coated steel bullets. In addition, two people, one of them a child, were arrested.
After midday prayer, around sixty Palestinians, together with Israeli and international activists, marched as usual from the center of the village towards the stolen spring across the main road.

As protesters were building stone barricades along the road to prevent Israeli forces from invading the village, a skunk water truck and two jeeps appeared at the scene. The truck ran over the barricades and drove along the road spraying demonstrators with foul smelling water. Israeli soldiers and border police officers shot several rounds of rubber coated steel bullets injuring one protesters in the right side of the abdomen. After a while, Israeli forces and the truck retreated and protesters took over the road again. As confrontations between Palestinian youths and Israeli forces continued, three jeeps and the skunk water truck chased the protesters up the road spraying the houses and people.
At around 2:30pm, the bulk of the protesters left the area except for a few Palestinian youths who were still on the hilltop throwing stones. Suddenly, when people were resting at the petrol station, four army and border police jeeps joined by the skunk water truck, invaded the village once again and sprayed everything in their way. One adult and one child from the nearby village of Deir Netham, Tamim (19) and Mo’men (16) Tamimi were arrested and taken into the jeeps. They remain under arrest until now.

Wednesday 5.6.13 commemoration of Aqil Srour killed three years ago in the Friday joint demonstration against the separation fence and occupation.
"...Aqil Srour was consistently targeted by the occupation forces from the beginning of the struggle against the barrier in Ni’lin. He was time and time again shot directly at during peaceful demonstrations. Only two weeks before being assassinated he sustained injuries after having been hit in the face with a tear gas canister.
On the 5th of June 2009, Aqil was shot in the heart with a 0.22 caliber bullet, a kind of ammunition considered illegal under international law, while he was trying to rescue a 16 year old boy named Muhammed Mousa. Muhammed had been shot in the stomach by the same kind of ammunition and when Aqil reached the passed out boy he was shot by a sniper from the Israeli border police. Aqil died before reaching the hospital, not much more than two months after his release from Ofer military jail...."
Teargas is routine here. Today in Qaddum, The weekly demo against the occupation, land theft and roadblocks in the west bank, where existence is resistance and freedom is a fairy tail.
