Palestine-Israel, the future is knocking on the door of the joint struggle.
The Israeli media is ongoing reporting on the Israeli elite of the boycott on Israel that not only became significant economically and politically but also just two steps from avalanche. Lot of activists who do not understand that the battle will not be resolved here but in the international area lost heart as the immediate gains are small. They do not understand that the local struggle is the Archimedes point the lever of the B.D.S. is leaning on. So, the joint struggle continue. The international activists who come here carry the struggle in their countries when they return home. Whether understanding the importance of the joint struggle or not, hundred Israelis, and hundreds of Palestinians are every weekend in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrakh, South of Hebron Hills, and sporadicly in other locations too.
Ten Israelis, dozen internationals and two dozen Palestinians demonstrated this Friday in Bil'in. When we reached the gate in the wall, Israeli state forces threatened us but did nothing. After a while we started to go to the south, along the wall, and the state forces started to shoot tear gas on the shabab located in the Abu Lamun Oaks wood,, and shoot in the ankle one of them with live ammunition. When the intensity of the tear gas was overwhelming we started to return to the village.
Weekly protest 24.1.2014
Clashes erupted in Nabi Saleh today when Israeli forces repressed the peaceful protest chanting for freedom in the village, and declared the village a closed military zone. It was reported that a military plane was flying over the village during the protest taking images of the village and people in the protest.
Tens of protesters suffocated from tear gas fired by Israeli forces while they demonstrated against Israeli occupation.
Many injured cases including children, and journalists -- Really I didn’t know from where I will begin just I want to say that this demonstration is one of the most aggressive since the beginning.
More than 600 hundred persons participate our march today beside our friends from (SFP-ISM- and activists from ISRAEL-and many other internationals) tenths of soldiers and bulldozer and jeeps attacked our town shooting hundreds of tear gas canisters towards the people and houses also targeting journalists many times.

Israeli TV channel two reports on the expanding BDS campaign. The report is very self victimizing, and very lacking in self awareness. It questions the world for boycotting Israeli, not Israel for occupying Palestine. In fact it seems like the reporter thinks that Israel is doing nothing wrong, and just by chance finds itself as the international scapegoat.
