Palestine-Israel, The less radical left added to the joint struggle, compete with the anarchists against the wall

The Solidarity Sheikh Jarrah loose front of Zionist left, humanist religious trend, crystallized and expanded mainly to the annexed East Jerusalem and within 1948 borders. Our comrades from Jerusalem joined them from the beginning and contributed to their radicalizing. They sometimes join us in our Bil'in struggle. We often join them in other locations. This week end we marked the sixth year anniversary of the struggle in Bil'in, on the background of the uprising of the masses in the Arabic countries of the region.

Al Arakib

The struggle continues... yet another demolition of el-Arakib might happen any day, especially in the early mornings.
Volunteers are need to go there for some hours in any of the coming days (Tuesday through Thursday) If you can, please contact A

Beit Ommar


More than hundred Israelis and few dozens internationals joined Palestinian men and women of Bil'in and the region who marked 6 years of Friday demonstrations in the village against the separation fence and occupation. Thanks to a strong wind from the south the demonstrators managed to duck the smelly water cannon and sporadic shooting of gas and keep next to the fence, accompanied by drummers, a sound system, Palestinian politicians, and signs against the apartheid and the US veto signs. The shabab managed to tear down the external fence in a couple of spots and go between the fences. Later the army crossed the fence backed by showers of gas. A few demonstrators managed to stay close to the soldiers, preventing the shabab from trying to stone them away. As more demonstrators tried to approach they suffered heavy showers of gas, including canisters shot directly at demonstrators. The soldiers even shot at ambulances busy clearing the victims of the potentially lethal gas. During the direct confrontation with the soldiers one demonstrator sprayed a soldier's shield with an anti-wall slogan, and two other demonstrators were arrested (one was falsely charged with throwing stones, but both were released on the same day). Eventually the demonstrators declared the demo over, and walked back together with most of the journalists. The soldiers, however, remained where they stood, and so the shabab tried to make them retreat by throwing stones. In response, three soldiers ran forward, shot a string of live 0.22 bullets, and turned back. A boy of 17 was injured in his foot.

This is how the event was described by the Israeli press: "the army claims that he approached the soldiers with a sharp weapon and that they felt their lives were in danger". This is the standard format for a post-factum shooting which is illegal according to the army's own orders. The only surprising thing about this description is that Jawaher, who was killed by gas in a previous demo, was said to "not have participated in the demo at all and died from an atropine overdose at the hospital", rather than to have threatened soldiers with a sharp weapon. Of course, when the IDF spokesman finally makes its announcement, it might choose the standard format over the current one.

Like previous Tuesdays, demonstration in Lod Against House Demolitions 02/15/11

‎2 months ago, on a Monday morning during the largest storm of this winter, hundreds of masked and armed police special forces attacked 7 houses in Lod, which were considered illegally built on land owned by the residents. The residents, all Israeli citizens were expelled from their homes.

This Tuesday 18:00 - protest in Lod keeps on rolling - 9 weeks already!
abu-id family has recieved eviciton orders for the new cacrvans put at the site of their old houses. come protest with them! Lod central station, and then 19:00 at the tent for a show.

Video clip at:

Next Tuesday, as every Tuesday in the past two months, we will stand together, Arab and Jews, and make it clear to Nitzan, that the future of the city lies in Jewish-Arab cooperation for the good of all the city's residents, not in oppression and intimidation. Together we will stand until a proper housing solution for the Abu Eid family will be found and for a just housing policy in the city of Lod.


"They did not report Ma'asara: 100 people who demonstrated against the separation fence and occupation marked also 42 years of Democratic Front with slogans and songs, and were dispersed with tear gas and stun grenades ."

Nabi Saleh

The weekly march through the village of Nabi Saleh was slowed down by army threats to start fire. Soon enough they did shoot tear gas canisters at the protesters, invaded the village, made some arrests and attempted many more.

Close to the end of the day Nabi Saleh youth came to reclaim their village. The army responded with an immediate attack with tear gas. Later on the army used massive amounts of tear gas on the entire village and the "skunk" water tank to spray the center of the village with foul-smelling water that keep the place where they are shot at unfit for living for about a week and smelly for many weeks after. The soldiers and their vehicles were warded off by a "rain" of stones, and soon after the clashes ended at sundown.

Seven people were arrested today in Nabi Saleh during the weekly demonstration against the occupation and settlements, after the Israeli army invaded the village: two Palestinians, four Israelis and one international. They are still held by Israeli forces, and we are told that the two Palestinians were separated from the rest during their ride to Binyamin police station. This does not bid well for them and could mean that they are being sent to Ofer on the account of false soldiers' testimonies.

The US Has Vetoed - The US is an Accomplice to the Settlement Crime! We Will Not Be Silent !
tonight at 19:00, US embassy Tel-Aviv

Tonight at 19:00: Demonstration in front of the US embassy in Tel Aviv, Hayarkon 71 street, Tel Aviv.
We will protest against the American vetoing of the UN Security Council resolution on the Israeli settlements in the occupied territories.

Saturday evening we had a demonstration in front of US embassy.

We had banners and placard and chanted against US support to Israeli occupation and settlers colonies in the West bank. Prominent were calls for EU and US B.D.S. (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) of Israel.


Protesters rally at US embassy in TA to slam UNSC veto

Around 50 protesters of the Anarchists Against the Wall initiative and other activists rallied outside the US Embassy in Tel Aviv on Saturday night, to protest the US veto on Friday of a UN Security Council resolution calling Israeli settlements ‘illegal’ and calling for an immediate halt in their construction.

Holding signs reading “stop US-supported occupation” and “Veto settlements, vote justice” and chanting “UN, US, it’s time for B.D.S.”, (Boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel) the demonstrators took issue with what they said is continued American approval and compliance with controversial Israeli policies.

Activist R. B. told The Jerusalem Post that the protest is part of “a new campaign pointing a finger at the US complicity in Israeli crimes.”

B. called the veto “just a continuation of the same policies of the US, which are going against the consensus of world opinion and civil society protests against Israeli actions. The veto clearly shows how utterly complicit the US is in funding and supporting Israeli crimes and shows again that Israeli apartheid is an American-Israeli project.”

Palestine-Israel, Some activities the anarchists against the wall AAtW initiative involved with last week

There are four main areas of struggles the AAtW activists are involved with: Joint struggle with communities that invite us to join like Bil'in and other struggles against the separation fence. Other joint struggles against occupation and settler colonialists like Nabi Saleh. Joint struggles with wider coalitions like Shekh Jarah coalition and South Hebron. The fourth is within Israel like prison and jail solidarity, Al Arakib and Lod. It seems that our confrontational and direct action mode of struggle is adopted by more and more Israeli radicals.

Al Arakib

More and more frequent the state forces come early in the morning to destroy the village and harass the Bedouins and Israeli activists who join them. After the state force leave - temporary dwellings are built.
Often, like this week Wednesday activists are arrested and prison solidarity activity is done the next day in Beer Sheva court house.

Updates from El Arakiv

The village of El Arakiv was destroyed on Feb. 7 2011 for the 13th time, and again on Feb.8
Yesterday and today bulldozers arrived from the Israeli Lands Administration and a large number of vans. They destroyed the village and took everything with them that could remind of the village. JNF workers continued to work on the site of the former houses to prepare planting a forest.
At the site of the village there are now dams and terraces. Most of the inhabitants of the village are now at the ancient graveyard, which is not destroyed, and run there their daily life.

Protest watches
Every Sunday the inhabitants protest against the destruction of their village at Lehavim Junction oat 15.30 Everyone is invited to participate and show solidarity.

Reminder: Register for Transportation to Saturday February 12 Weekly Demonstrations Against the Wall and the Settlements


29 Israelis and a bunch of internationals joined the Palestinian men and women of Bil'in for the weekly demo for peace and independence. This time the soldiers waited behind the fence. The shabab confronted them on the northern stretch, while the processions carried on westward. The soldiers retreated from the shabab on the north, but waited only a couple of minutes before they gassed the demonstrators on the west and charged across the fence. Most demonstrators retreated, but some remained amidst the soldiers, effectively serving as human shields for the soldiers facing the shabab. The soldiers continued to shoot gas at demonstrators who tried to advance, including, as usual, some potentially lethal shots aimed directly at demonstrators. Then the demo was declared over, and the shabab remained to try and disperse the army with stones and be shot at with live bullets.

On Saturday night Israel’s most-watched news program on Channel 2, aired a 10-minute “Special Report” on the weekly demonstrations in the Palestinian village of Bil’in. Every Friday, Palestinians of the village demonstrate against the separation fence which was built on their lands, and are joined by Israeli and international activists. Haggai Matar, of Anarchists Against the Wall, was a key figure in the news piece. His reaction can be read at:

Nabi Saleh

This Friday in Nabi Saleh protesters couldn't believe their eyes as they were able to march through the village without been shot at, something they weren't able to do for months now, due to the Israeli border police and army harsh repression of the village protest. However, that was just a brief pause before the usual repressive measures were launched against the entire village population. The protest began with the burning of tires on the main road, aimed at blocking the Israeli forces from invading the village by vehicles. Once Israeli soldiers invaded the village by foot, some protesters attempted to ward them off by throwing stones and soon enough every living civilian in the village became an army target, either by live ammunition, rubber coated still bullets, tear gas canisters or arrests. Some of the protesters went outside the village and clashed with the army in the surrounding hills. When they returned to the village, the army retreated to its built post next to the village entry and clashes continued there until sundown. At the end of the day, six people were detained for hours and then released, all of them arrested for simply remaining in the village after the army incursion. Among the arrestees were three Palestinians who are residents of the village, two internationals and one Israeli. The internationals and Israeli first had their ID card and passports taken from them during the demo, and when they came to retrieve them after the clashes had ended (as did three other Israeli protesters who had their IDs taken) – they were arrested.

Sheik Jarrah

The local committee for building and planning in Jerusalem approved today to building plans for 13 housing units for settlers in Sheikh Jarrah (in the area of Um Haroun).
The plans were brought in front of the committee approximately 2 hours before they were scheduled, and so even the residents of Um Haroun could not be present for the discussion.

Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity movement/coalition organized a demonstration in front of the Jerusalem Municipality protesting their past in the settler take over of Sheikh Jarrah. In this demonstration four activists were arrested and at least one of them will have a court hearing today.

Palestine-Israel, The weekly report on the joint struggles the AAtW* activists are involved with

The on going struggles the few dozens activists of the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative began in Maskha camp 2003 on the route of separation fence. The direct actions of one sided non violent activities together with popular grass root Palestinian activists became the focus for hundreds of Israelis of a wider political spectrum and/or lower level of involvement. The struggle which we started within the 1967 occupation regions "spilled" to the original 1948 borders of Israel and to other social class struggles. The AAtW activity draw into the joint struggle other Israeli political organizations, initiatives and NGOs. Even the radical Zionist leftists were touched and are now the core of the Solidarity Sheikh Jarrah... that expand to other parts of occupied East Jerusalem and even into struggles within the 1948 borders like Arakib and Jaffa and Lod.

Theme: Support for Palestinian state vs. solidarity with Egyptian democracy

Last week: the demonstrators reached the fence but had to retreat because of the skunk. Then they went on to the northern part of the fence. At this point the army kidnappers flooded everything with gas and crossed the wall to chase the demonstrators away.
This week: The army crossed the wall before the demo and shot gas while the demonstrators were still on their way. Some demonstrators managed to cross the wall of gas and confronted the soldiers with slogans, signs and umbrellas. The army kept other demonstrators from joining by shooting more gas. When the demonstration was declared over and everyone retreated the apparently Mubarak supporting soldiers cowardly gassed the retreating demonstrators.
Shabab: Tried to disperse the soldiers with stones vs. tried to disperse the soldiers with potty mouth insults.
weapons: skunk, gas, sound bombs, rubber bullets and live bullets vs. gas and sound bombs

Nabi Saleh Marches with the People of Egypt
Despite pounding rain and aggressive repression tactics employed by the army, the village of Nabi Saleh marched Friday in solidarity with the people of Egypt. The demonstration was also in honor of 14 year Nabi Saleh resident Islam Tamimi, who was arrested in a night raid in the village almost three weeks ago and remains in jail.

Even before the demonstration was slated to begin, the army had taken positions inside the small village of Nabi Saleh, located just west of Ramalla. Soldiers briefly detained three Israeli supporters around 10:30 in the morning inside the village. The activists were taken to the village entrance and told to leave and not return. They were able to enter from a different point and join the demonstration later in the day.
Dozens of Palestinian, international and Israeli activists marched holding posters of 14 year Islam Tamimi, who has been in an Israeli military jail for almost three weeks. The demonstration was also in solidarity with the people of Egypt. Across the West Bank, popular committees held demonstrations in solidarity with Egypt.

The demonstration was attacked with tear gas, the same American made gas used against protesters Egypt and Tunisia, before reaching the main junction of the village. Soldiers then took over the square of the village and forced protesters into the olive grooves surrounding Nabi Saleh. Despite the pounding rain, soldiers maintained positions inside the village until five in the evening.
Two international activists were detained for roughly three hours during the demonstration and no injuries other than tear gas inhalation were reported. The village has been suffering serious repression by the Israeli army over the past month. Weekly night raids, the systemic arrest of children and threaten popular committee leaders has become a mainstay of life in Nabi Saleh. Despite this, the people still resist the Israeli occupation and march in solidarity with the people of Egypt and Tunisia who are fighting for the spirit of freedom.

Wad Rahal

Yesterday some 30 Israeli and international activists joined the Palestinian demo against the wall and the settlements.
We marched down to the route of the wall and passed with no problems, and then up the hill to the gate of the Efrat that sites on wad Rahal's land and is planing to take more lands with the help of the wall. We chanted slogans and played drums in front of the gates without any violence of violent threats. within a few minutes an army car came and an officer of the IOF commanded us to leave. we didn't agree and were tear gassed and sound bombed and one was arrested. the people of the demo then went back to the rout of the wall and went on with the demo, after being gassed again the went to the entrance to the village, some 10 meters away, and would not go away, even as tear gas and sound bombs were still thrown. The demand to let the prisoner go was finally answered and he was let go. the people then marched back up the village chanting slogans and playing drums.

video-Friday demo in Wad Rahhal
A group of Palestinian, Israeli and international activists demonstrated peacefully in the village of Wad Rahal, south of Bethlehem, against plans to erect a wall, and land confiscations and house demolitions which have already begun as a result of these plans.

Despite the protest being completely non-violent, with the demonstrators drumming and shouting slogans, the Israeli army arrived at the scene and immediately attacked the demonstrators with grenades and tear gas.

This is an example of how the Israeli army treats non-violent protests of Palestinians in the West Bank.

Sheikh Jarrah

" No to Political Oppression
The passing week has been another one of oppression. The settlers who murdered the youth Yousef Ikhlay from Saffa are still roaming free. The village of El-Arakib was demolished once again. The Sha'aban family from Dahmash is still under house arrest after it dared protest against the house demolitions in Dahmash and Lod.
Yet, the inspiring pictures from Egypt show us that an alternative does exist. That popular resistance and solidarity can still change reality, tear down oppressive regimes and pave the road to a better world.
This Friday we will meet in Sheikh Jarrah and protest all these injustices. Join us!"

This Friday, February 4th, At the weekly demo in SJ the people reclaimed the garden of SJ, were the demo's always start. They changed the name of the garden to El-Tahrir sq in solidarity with the Egyptian people.
