Palestine-Israel, The first serious crack in the Israeli Zionist ruling elite
It is hard to assess what is the part of the joint struggle and the B.D.S. in the serious crack in the Israeli elite. It was expressed by the leader of biggest opposition party - The Zionist List which suggested a partial agreement of withdrawal (even from part of the expanded Jerusalem). Since 1967 war, all the years the official position was that Israel will retreat from most of the occupied territories of the 1967 war if the Palestinian will agree to a peace pact that will include among other conditions the non return of the 1948 refugees. As it was clear that no Palestinian leadership will be able to do that it was clear to all that the monolithic consensus of the Zionist parties is to continue the occupation for ever. It is not surprising that even the leader of the radical leftist Zionist party Merets oppose this radical suggestion for withdrawal with out the (non achievable) final peace pact.

Bil'in- Palestine 15.01.2016
"Today was the weekly demonstration in Bi'lin. Israeli soldiers have shot today with another kind of bullet than the usual ammunition they use. For me it is still unknown, and I don’t know exactly what kind of damage it can cause when you are hit with this. We now know that they are using us to test everything on, so perhaps this is why they used this kind of bullets".

22-1-16 Today the weekly demonstration in Bi'lin was in solidarity with Ahmed Manaser. 8 anarchists of Ahdut (Unity), and 8 with the anarchists against the wall initiative, joined about dozen internationals, and the village activists and youth. Due to the mostly northern wind the Israeli state forth could not disperse us. The shooting of lot of tear gas and some bullets just made us to keep a distance from the troops. A 10 year old boy was hit by a plastic bullet, fortunately it was not life-threatening. After the usual half an hour of harassment the state force retreated and we declared another small size victory...

22-1-16 Villagers of Nabi Saleh marched today demanding the release of Ahmen Manasara, a 14 years old child from Jerusalem who is languishing in Israeli jail, accused of attacking a Jewish settler. Manasara was seriously injured by Israeli police, and a video from the scene shows him lying in a pool of his own blood while a settler verbally abuses him and tells him to “die already.” Manasara is merely one among about 400 Palestinian minors in Israel’s prisons. Marchers confronted the Israeli army, as the soldiers attempted to disperse them using tear gas and rubber coated steel bullet. One teenage girl was injured from a bullet
