Palestine-Israel, The collapse of the deterrent ability of Israel in the last Gaza war is expressed every where.
The frustrated Israeli state force who do not dare to prevent the weekly non armed popular demonstrations - Joined and purely of Palestinians, resort to shooting on demonstrators with frequent use of live fire by snippers. In the annexed regions of Jerusalem they no more pretend it is not an occupied area and apply there the occupation procedures - both in treatment of detaining children and houses demolition. The "hot" areas of the popular non armed struggle gradually expand but still far away from a general uprising. The international popular struggle worry the Israeli elite but the damages to the Israeli economy is still in the margins. It seems the Zionist settler colonialist elite which bribed the tycoons section of the capitalist elite with extreme neo liberal measures cannot do it any more as other sections of the capitalist elite (backers of Cakhlon) rebelled.
Mahmoud Abu Rahma aged 12 was arrested today when the Israeli army entered the village. The reason for his arrest was unclear. The army use these tactics to intimidate Palestinians. He was later released. During the week-long demonstration 4 protesters were injured from rubber coated steel bullets.

The Palestinian youth was wounded after being shot in the leg several times with rubber bullets. The foreigner was injured after being shot in the neck with a tear gas canister at extremely close range, less than two meters. The Israeli occupation forces attempted to trick demonstrators by hiding in between the trees, from which they fired shots at them and tried to arrest the Palestinians demonstrators who regularly participate in the weekly demonstration against the illegal Israeli occupation in the village of Bil’in. Despite their attempts and their close distance, the Israeli army failed to arrest any of the protestors."

"Hundreds commemorated Land Day in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, in protest of ongoing land annexations, settlements and military occupation. Among the hundreds who attended the march were delegates from several local popular committees such as Ni’lin Bil’in, Kufr Qaddum and Hebron based Youth against Settlements. Many international and Israeli solidarity activists also joined the march. The Israeli army attempted to disperse the march with barrages of tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets. One protester was arrested and threatened with pepper spray, as soldiers chased more protesters in an attempt to detain them as well. No serious injuries reported."

Demo at the recruiting camp entrance 6-4-15 12:00
Efi Dreyshner, member of the "Unity" ("Ahdut") Anarcho-communist organization, is now a prisoner in the Zionist military prison because he opposes the occupation and does not wish to serve in the state's armed forces. The regime who jailed him does not understand that Effi is an anarchist-communist and that a wider agenda and ethical morality stand behind his refusal!
