Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue and so does the creeping transfer*

On one side we have the mounting international pressure on Israel to yield a bit. On another side we have the increase of fear of the Israeli elite from the mounting pressure and the threats to increase it much more in the near future. In spite of that or as a desperate response the efforts to speed the creeping transfer by the Israeli regular forces and the irregular settlers increase immensely. The Israeli Bedouins face the prelude of the Farwer plan to transfer half of the villagers to concentration towns. Palestinians of the Jordan valley and of south of Hebron are harassed and pushed slowly out. The demolitions and confiscations of houses in occupied east Jerusalem continue. And the joint struggle persist both in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qadum, Ma'asara, Sheikh Jarah, and South of Hebron Hills - and will never stop.


Friday weekly demonstration. Dozen Israelis, nearly two Dozens internationals and dozens Bil'iners converged at noon in the Abu Lamun orchard near the separation wall. Not long after we approached the area near the gate in the wall the state forces started to shower us with barrages of tear gas canisters. As the wind was friendly to us, the state forces had to crossed the wall with armored cars in order to drive us back to the village. It took them nearly two hours to force all of us back to the village.

Friday, protest today, 25 October, 2013 West Bank village marks 7 years of popular resistance
The markedly stone-free protests in al Ma’asara are nevertheless violently suppressed by the Israeli army. ”We see the soldiers here with their guns, their boots, their shields and their helmets protecting the wall – but we know the real problem is the wall that is in their minds,” protest leader says.

About 200 Palestinian, Israeli and international activists attended this week’s Friday demonstration against the wall and settlements in the village of al-Ma’asara, south of Bethlehem. The larger-than-usual crowd gathered at noon in the village center to commemorate seven years of popular struggle in the village – seven years of weekly marches toward the land where the separation barrier is planned to run.

The larger and more festive procession this week took the usual route from the village center to the land using the village’s main road, only to find it blocked by soldiers at the entrance to the village – as the army does every week. Activists tried to break through the row of soldiers with their hands in the air and after failing to pass sat down on the ground in front of the soldiers.

A border police officer stated he was declaring the village a “closed military zone,” giving demonstrators five minutes to leave the area. “You are standing on occupied land in a liberated Palestinian village – so it is you that have five minutes to leave,” answered Hassan Brijieh of the popular committee in the village.

After about an hour and a half the demonstration ended and while activists were returning to the village, soldiers followed them in. At one point a couple of kids from the village threw stones at the invading jeeps and were answered with a few tear gas grenades fired on the main road. The whole incident ended shortly and back at the village center popular committee members stated they would continue with their struggle.
