Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue in lower intensity: last Friday only 3 Israelis came to Bil'in demo
Bil'in-Ni'ilin-Ma'asara-Nabi Saleh-Qaddum-Sheikh Jarrah- south of Hebron Hills
The 50 days war on Gaza ended, after Israel begged for a cease fire and yielded to major demands of the Hamas (some kept in secret even from Israeli government ministers). Majority of Israelis admit that Israel did not win the war but hard to admit the Hamas had the upper hand. Ministers passed two weeks ago Cabinet classified document containing a proposal to place an international force in Gaza which may mean the end of Israel occupation of the Gaza strip and opening the Ghetto... and may be a precedent to what may be the end of occupying of the west bank). In Israel, the "radical" left is back to "normal"... though many more activists are contemplating joining the comrades who had already lost hope and emigrated. It seems the international pressures of the imperial powers and the advances of the boycott movement are bringing sooner than expected the end of 1967 occupation.

5.9.14 Nabi Saleh.
The Israeli army violently suppressed the weekly Friday demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh against the occupation and land theft. Locals, as well as solidarity activists, marched under the blazing sun from the village's Martyrs' Square towards the lands and the spring which were expropriated by Israel and are now being held by settlers from nearby Halamish.
The IOF fired barrages of tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at demonstrators in an attempt to disperse them. No major injuries reported.

Nariman Tamimi: "I don't want to explain to you what the occupation is", Nariman Tamimi
told us, "I want you to come and see the occupation and tell me what peace
is". In this short video, Nariman, Bassem and Manal from Nabi Salih, a
small village on the West bank, talk about the Israeli occupation, the land-
and water grabbing by Israeli settlements, and the resistance of their
village against it. Recorded on July 28, during Israels attack on Gaza -
operation 'protective edge'.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWCdhC8B9YQ

For five years residents of Sheikh Jarrah struggle against settlers takeover of their homes.
During the five years of struggle, the neighborhood knew many demonstrations, and outrageous settlers attacks.
Now the State of Israel has finally found someone to blame.
In the next week Salah Diab, a leader of the fight in the neighborhood, will enter to prison term for eight months.
Saleh, accused of assault by settlers "neighbors". He claims that he was not there. The court criticized the improper conduct of the police during the investigation, but then chose to believe the version of the settlers and the judgment of Saleh determined.
On Friday 29.8.2014 we returned to Sheikh Jarrah to say farewell to Saleh and ensure that the struggle will continue. About 100 participated in the vigil and in the march in the neighborhood (including a contingent of five of us just fresh from the Bil'in demo.)
