Palestine-Israel, The more Israel is threatened by the B.D.S. the more viscous is the treatment of the Palestinians*
The emergence of the B.D.S. finds its expressions in both the Israeli media, the ruling elite, and the medium level of the capitalists. The harassment of the Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum is not applied to Bil'in which is in the focus of international attention. It seems the state forces got specific orders to be much more "lenient" even with the stones throwing Shabab. Lot of the Israeli activists lost their persistence as the development on the ground is not expanding and the advance of the B.D.S. is too abstract for them. For many Israeli and the Palestinian activists the big picture is not clear enough and they do not feel that we are winning. They do not really feel the satisfaction from the fact that our joint struggle is the important leaning point the lever of the B.D.S. need for its success.
This Friday we had anew experience of the weekly demo. About 10 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall, with flags of the anarchist-communist Ahdut, joined about dozens of Bil'iners in the march from the Abu Lamun grove to the gate in the separation wall. When we arrived there - yet without harassment, we started to march along the wall. the state forces started at firs a symbolic throwing of tear gas grenades which resulted in the shabab getting into action. Gradually the state force escalated, but due to strong southern wind they failed to drive us away. After nearly an hour in which they tasted their own tear gas - some returned to them by the wind and some by the shabab, they came with an armored car to distribute the teargas defectively and we gradually retreated to the village..

In AlMasara today Palestinian protesters have managed to reach to the land to be annexed to settlements in the area. Protesters have left the village with their cars and headed towards the lands to be confiscated and annexed. Earlier in the day the village was declared a closed military zone.
The popular committees in AlMasara and Bethlehem assured the continuation of the popular resistance in the village and announced that they will continue to resist and stop Israeli forces from their continuous policies of land confiscation in the region.

"2 ISRAELI activists were detained for few hours in police station when check point stopped them.
The army try to show UN who visit us on FRIDAY that they didn’t use violence and only Palestinian throw stones by talking with loudspeaker by one of the officers . But the Israeli army when they feel that the UN leave the village began gathering themselves and jeeps and bulldozer shooting tear gas canisters direct by guns and by the machine on the jeep. Many suffocated cases between us but no injured or arrested people.
The Israeli army used tear gas canisters and sound bombs during their suppression of K Q march which began at 12:15 after praying. Hundreds of people participate the march beside friends from ISM and friends from Israeli activists"

The efforts of the settlers and the IDF to expel the residents of Palestinian Susya continue.
On 11th February, 2014, settlers, probably coming from the settlement Susya, uprooted about 100 olive saplings belonging to Palestinian Susya, in Wadi Sweid. A few days later settlers uprooted the remaining saplings on that land. On 15th February, 2014, Palestinian Susya residents and volunteers planted 120 olive saplings in the area of Ar-Rujum at Susya. All the trees were then uprooted by IDF soldiers.
On Wednesday, 26th February, 2014, government representatives accompanied by police came to demolish Bedouins’ homes in the Negev. In Tel Sheva they demolished a home. In Umm Batin near Omer they demolished a home. In Kuhla, some 10 km west of Arad, they demolished another home. The next day they went on to demolish another home, in Umm Namila, north of Rahat.
