Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue with blaming of the anarchists by the Israeli prime minister and his extreme rightist supporters.

The political arena in Palestine occupied by Israel and Israel did not take the winter hibernation. The Arab Spring seems to continue during both the summer, the Autumn, and even the winter. The Hamas, who supported the nonviolent joint popular struggle in Bil'in from the beginning in spite of extreme fundamentalists objections to it, adopted now the the nonviolent popular struggle as the main strategy. Israeli escalation of repression of this and the joint struggle is expected. In spite of the uncertainty we continued another week of joint struggle: Beit Ummar, Bil'in, East Jerusalem-Al-Kuds (Silwan,Shu'fat,Sheikh Jarrah), Al-Ma’sara, Naby Saleh, Ni'ilin, kafr a-Dik, Kafr Qadum, Qalandiya, South Of Hebron Hills. Within Israel the social justice struggle continue in localized struggles with a moving focus. The air is vibrating with the expectancy of a dramatic eruption.

John Brown:


"Two days before Xmas day, almost 20 Israelis, a few internationals and two Santas joined the weekly Palestinian demonstration against the wall and occupation in Bil'in. With bells a ringin', we marched to the wall, and as soon as Santa touched the barbed wire (that protects the other barbed wire that protects the concrete wall that protects the Israeli snipers that protect the settlers watching over from the other side), before we could even chant "hura hura Falasteen", Santa and his entourage had a barrage of gas canisters shot directly at them, just barely failing to repeat the military achievement of killing a protester in Nebi Salah two weeks earlier. Due to a local wedding the shabab decided on a short demo and, with very few exceptions, refrained from throwing stones at the people who steal their lands and try to kill them, but this didn't prevent the army from shooting several more barrages of gas canisters directly at protesters, which, only by sheer chance or Xmas spirit, ended up whistling in their ears rather than crushing their skulls. After some exchange of insults with the settlers hiding behind the soldiers and a brief excursion between the barbed wire and the wall, the protesters returned home early, as planned, with a few iron poles appropriated from the fence as an early Xmas present courtesy of the Occupation."

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle persist in spite of Israel state harassments

This week we added the mourning of Mustafa Tamimi to the ongoing joint struggle. There was a special recruitment of activists to Nabi Saleh with around of 100 Israelis in addition to Palestinians activists of the region who joined the hundreds of Nabi Saleh villagers. The conflicts with the Israeli state forces was more than usual and was included action in the entrance of the adjacent colonialist settlement who rob Nabi Saleh lands and springs. The Bil'in struggle continue week after week and in addition to being a symbol for the struggle against the separation fence, robbery of lands by settler colonialists and the occupation, it is also a focus of defamation of our struggle by the Israeli Prime minister and his servants. The Israeli courts system that usually serve whole heartedly the transfer of Palestinian had a glitch when a judge refused to evict Palestinians from two hoses in occupied East Jerusalem.


16 Dec. The 360th Friday demonstration against the separation wall/fence and the occupation in Bil'in. At noon, some drove directly to the new separation wall, most of us marched the long way towards it. We were about 15 Israelis, similar number of internationals and few dozens Palestinians. Many of us held the picture of Mustafa Tamimi murdered last Friday demo in Nabi Saleh. Soon after we arrived at the wall the state force "warned" us with tear gas grenades but due to a friendly wind that carried the gas towards them they refrained for a while from shooting us. Many of the shabab who started earlier confrontation with the soldiers at the south end of the reservation moved towards our location and had a long and intense "communication" with the soldiers who had to hide behind the wall.
Few of the shabab and one of the main demonstration carrying a flag even succeeded to enter the forbidden zone between the spools of barbed wire and the wall. After long while, as the state force failed to disperse us with the shower of tear gas they shoot from behind the wall, they crossed the wall and came with their armed cars and by foot to threat us...
At this stage most of the participants dispersed on the surrounding hills and returned to the village.



Demo against the new checkpoint this Sunday at !6:00
Representatives of the Palestinian community in Shuafat have invited Israelis and Internationals to come to the weekly demo against the new checkpoint constructed by the Israeli military. The demonstration will be held on Sunday at 3. A transportation will pick up attendees from the Bell Garden at 1:45. To register for the transportation/directions please contact Michael at 0507750754

Sheikh Jarrah
We will meet at the Sheikh Jarrah Garden, Nablus Road and Dahlmann St.


The weekly demonstration against the Wall and settlements in Ma'asara commenced peacefully, like on any other week in the past five years. Some 50 protesters marched from the center of the village towards the main road, aiming to reach their agricultural lands, confiscated to build the Wall.
Chanting slogans and raising banners, the demonstrators soon met a military battalion that was standing in a line on the road, aiming to prevent the march from passing through. As they reached the soldiers, Hassan Breijieh approached them and asked might he be allowed to cross to his lands. The soldiers replied, apparently mockingly, that he may. As soon as Breijieh took two steps forward he was immediately arrested.
The demonstration continued for some time following this event. As most of the protesters were heading back into the village, soldiers arrested a local youth, Ibrhaim Fawaja, claiming that he had thrown stones. While soldiers told the demonstrators that they will be released shortly, both remain in custody and it is still unclear when they will be brought before a judge.

Palestine-Israel: Nabi Salih, the death of a stone-thrower



More than 100 Israelis joined the heroic people of the village and activists from Bilin and the region (including international activists).

Hundreds joined the weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh today, including more than 100 Israelis, and a contingent of activists from Bil'in for marking the killing of Mustafa Tamimi (28), who was shot in the face during the weekly protest in the village last Friday. Tamimi was shot from a distance of less than 10 meters behind the semi-open door of an armored military jeep.

The demonstration held today commenced peacefully from the center of the village towards the spring confiscated by the nearby settlement Halamish. Shortly after arriving to the point where Tamimi was shot last week, the march was attacked by a shower tear-gas, shot by Border Police soldiers - both in arch and directly towards protesters. Massive amounts of tear-gas were shot continuously for approximately 30 minutes, despite the fact that no stone throwing was taking place. In addition, the "Skunk" truck carrying foul-smelling water was used to spray the entire area including the large crews of press present.
During the same time, a group of Palestinian, Israeli and international activists were blocking the entrance to the settlement of Halamish, built adjacent Nabi Saleh, on privately owned Palestinian land. 10 protesters were arrested in this attempt.
In the village, clashes started erupting between local youth and the army. A small group of protesters, who managed to get quite close to the spring, were also arrested. A Palestinian woman was pepper-sprayed by a Border Policemen for no evident reason. Several protesters and media personnel were slightly injured by tear gas canisters. One of them was evacuated to receive medical treatment.

Another group of Palestinian protesters were arrested while already leaving the village, when a taxi going to Ramallah was stopped by the army. All commuters were taken off the car and a number of them were arrested. All arrestees were taken to the Benyamin police station and most of them are charged with road blocking and entrance to close military zone.

‎25 arrested/detained - including Palestinians of the village and from Bil'in, Israelis and internationals - preliminary reports are that the majority of those detained are being held in the illegal Israeli colony of Halamish. Later, 8 of 10 Palestinians were released while two were taken with most of the internationals and Israelis to Benyamin police station. Later, most released with 14 accepted ban of 15 days on returning to Nabi Saleh. 2 Israeli women detainees remained in custody as they have refused to sign conditions of being banned from the area for a certain period of time and are staying in jail In solidarity with Mohammad Tamimi and Mohammad Khatib. They will be brought before a judge this evening in Jerusalem.

the internationals and the Israelis were released except 2 who refused to sign on two weeks ban on returning to Nebi Saleh.

From Mohammed Khatib 18-12-11
I have just been released from jail, after three days inside. I was arrested last Friday, together with 22 others, in the village of Nabi Saleh, during a demonstration commemorating the murder of Mustafa Tamimi. Our arrest took place as we peacefully protested near the entrance to the Jewish-only settlement of Halamish, which is built on lands stolen from Nabi Saleh.

Minutes after we got to the gate, Israeli Border Police officers moved in to remove us from the scene. Palestinians, Israeli and international activists, we were all shackled and dragged away into military jeeps that transported us to the adjacent military base, which is in fact part of the settlement.

In the military base, still shackled, I was assaulted by a settler who hit me in the face, leaving me with a bloody nose. Shortly after, the settler also attacked a female Israeli activist who was by my side. The soldiers and policemen present did not prevent the attack, nor did they bother to detain the settler after the fact. Instead, the zip-tie locks on my hands were removed, only for my arms to be bound again, this time behind my back.

Hours later, at the police station, I learned that to cover up their responsibility for my attack, the soldiers have laid a bogus complaint against me for assaulting them. My hands were tied, my face was bleeding, but it was I who spent the night in the inside of prison cell.

Mohammed Tamimi from Nabi Saleh was also arrested during that same demonstration. While the police decided to release all the others, he and I were to remain in jail. During our demonstrations, soldiers often take pictures, to later use them as "incriminating evidence". This time, the soldiers used one such picture to accuse Mohammed of throwing stones during a demonstration a few weeks or months back. The man pictured in that photograph is not Mohammed Tamimi from Nabi Saleh, regardless, he remains in jail. Military law allows Israel to keep us Palestinians in jail for eight days before seeing a judge, and even then, it is a soldier in uniform who is the so called neutral arbitrator.

As the prison doors closed behind me, my happiness was clouded by the fact that Mohammed Tamimi was not released. The battle for his freedom is only beginning, as our lawyers prepare the petition for his release. If you can, please help us fund legal aid for him and for the countless others who are regularly arrested protesting Israeli Occupation.

I would also like to use this letter to extend my gratitude to Ayala Shani, an Israeli comrade who was arrested with me. She refused the injustice of being released while both me and Mohammed Tamimi were still detained. As these words are written, she is still in jail, despite having been offered her freedom twice already by Israeli courts.

Mohammed Khatib

Ayala, who refused to sign her release papers (with commitment not to return 15 days to Nabi Saleh) as solidarity with Mohammed Tamimi still jailed was literally kicked out of jail without signing any papers on 19-12-11 with Mohammed Tamimi the only one of Friday demo detainees still at jail.


Protesters in Manage to Open a Gate Long Closed by the Army.
Approximately 100 residents and activists in Ni'ilin for the Friday demonstration against the separation fence used to rob their lands and occupation. They also protested Israeli construction work in the Gates of the Temple Mount (Bab Al Magharbeh) in Jerusalem. Protesters managed to open an agricultural gate that has been closed for more than six months.

The demonstration commenced at the center of the village shortly after the Friday prayer, marching towards the concrete wall surrounding the separation barrier built on the village's agricultural lands. Upon arriving to the Wall, protesters burned tires as well as a cardboard-made model of settlements. A small group of youth then began throwing stones at the Wall, to which the army responded by shooting large amounts of tear-gas projectiles.
Despite the heavy fall of tear gas, protesters were able to reach an agricultural gate installed in the Wall. The gate is supposed to be open in fixed times to enable farmers to reach their lands, however it has been constantly closed for at least six months. Demonstrators were able to open up a passage of about half a meter in this gate. The army responded rapidly – for the first time in months soldiers passed the Wall and entered the village, shooting large amounts of tear gas and rubber coated bullets at the demonstrators. Clashes lasted for over an hour, through which at least one protester was slightly injured.

Weekly demonstrations in Kufr Qaddum Persist. Residents of Kufer Qaddum in the northern West Bank are protesting land grab by settlers and severe violations of their freedom of movement. Settlers of the adjacent settlement Kedumin have been long taking over privately owned Palestinian land in a manner that even the Israeli civil Administration called "theft". Moreover, since the beginning of the second Intifada the main road leading to the town has been blocked by the army, largely impeding transport in and out of town

Don’t say we did not know #290

On Tuesday, 6th December, 2011, the IDF demolished two homes and three agricultural sheds (one of them without a military demolition order) in the Palestinian village El-Halaila, near the settlement Givat Ze’ev. One home owner who received a demolition order partially demolished his home in advance, hoping that this would give his family at least some sort of shelter. It did not help. Twelve souls were left without a roof over their heads.

Palestine-Israel,Mustafa Tamimi of Nabi Saleh was added to the list of martyrs of the joint struggle

About 20 Palestinian people involved in the joint struggle were already murdered by the Israeli state forces. Due to differential orders about shooting Israeli participants, till now no Israeli activist was murdered, though few were operated in hospitals after being shot, two lost part of their sight, and three suffered brain damage. Last Friday, Mustafa Tamimi of Nabi Saleh was murdered during the weekly demonstration by direct fire from few meter distance from an armored car. His head was seriously injured and hours of operations failed to save his life. Few thousands participated in the procession in Ramalla and about thousand came to his burial in Nabi Saleh. Dozens activists of the anarchists against the wall who knew Mustafa from the Friday demonstrations were among the about 50 Israelis who came to pay the last honer to Mustafa.

Bi'lin weekly demonstration, Dec. 9, 2011

The new pattern of the Friday demonstration in Bil'in already established. As soon as the noon prayer ends a contingent of the shabab travel to the new separation wall, and start their action at the south end of the adjacent Abu Lamun nature reservation. When the nonviolence demonstrators march approach the reservation the Israeli state force already attack the shabab with tear gas grenades. When our march pass the reservation and approach the wall, the state force just wait for an excuse to open their tear gas fire on us.

This week we had a relatively lively demonstration. The Palestinian activists of the village and the 7 Israelis of the anarchists against the wall initiative were joined by about two dozens of Belgian media students and half a dozen of Japanese medical project people. Due to the wind, we had to cross a cloud of tear gas which was carried from the shabab confrontation. We could see but luckily not smell the stinking water cannon spraying the shabab. Not long after we reached the separation wall, an activist of the shabab walked from the south along the wall between it and the spools of barbed wire "protecting" it. As expected, when he arrived at the point between the demonstration and the wall, the soldiers started to shoot us with canisters of tear gas. Due to the western wind most of us could not resist the tear gas and after a while all of the non violent demonstrators started to return to the village.

"Mustafa Tamimi, a 28 year old resident of Nabi Saleh, was shot in the face yesterday, during the weekly protest in the village of Nabi Saleh. He sustained a critical head injury, under his right eye, and was evacuated to the Belinson hospital in Petah Tikwa. The severe trauma to Tamimi's brain, caused by the shooting, left the doctors with little to do to save his life, and he eventually passed away at 09:21 AM today. Tamimi's funeral will take place tomorrow (Sunday), leaving Ramallah at 10:00 AM towards Nabi Saleh, where it is expected to reach at around 11:00 AM"

Here's another way of making life hard on the Palestinians of the South Hebron Hills region:

On Monday, 28th November, 2011, Civil Administration supervisors confiscated a Palestinian truck carrying construction materials to one of the cave-dweller villages in the South Hebron Hills region. They had no problem finding something out of order. So they confiscated the lorry. Past experience has shown that if an Israeli human rights organization sends a lawyer, it is interpreted as meaning that the Palestinian is wealthy, and so he can pay the fine to release his lorry. To avoid that, the Palestinian driver had to negotiate himself, and after a while the fine was decreased so that he could pay it. The driver then had to pay for the parking space as well.

The next day another lorry was confiscated.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle persists

All along the Zionist settler colonialist project in Palestine there were from time to time waves of onslaught and in between periods of persistent pressure for expanding the areas colonized and to transfer Palestinians from their lands... and persistent resistance (Tsumud) of the Palestinians. Last few weeks are an in between waves period of persistent pressure of Israel and persistent resistance (Tsumud) of the Palestinians. The joint struggle of the activists of the anarchists against the wall initiative with the grass root Palestinian activists during the last 8 years is part of the persistent resistance.... The main focuses of resistance are still Arakib and the Bedouins (in Israel mainly), Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, occupied East Jerusalem (Silwan and Sheik Jarrah), Qaddum,South Hebron hills, Walajeh.


Dear friends,
We are planning to hold a larger demonstration in Bil'in this Friday because of the demolition of the "Bil'in Outpost" last Monday.
The building that the army demolishes was built long before the old route of the Wall was demolished, in order to highlight the illegal construction (even according to Israeli law) that was taking place in the settlement at that time.
Now, the land the the Outpost was standing on until last Monday is no longer between the Wall and the settlement as it was supposedly given back to us after the rerouting, but as the demolition proves - Israel still views it as its own and we are not allowed to use it as we wish.
Please come and support us this Friday in demanding that we are allowed to use our land, and in the continued demand to dismantle the Wall and the settlements.

Silwan: The struggle is lately around few houses whose residents were issued eviction order. "We are still missing people for a few shifts - Tuesday Evening, Wednesday Morning, Thursday Morning and Thursday Evening."

Sheikh Jarrah: The struggle include the Friday weekly demonstrations. Since the mildly radical Solidarity deserted the Friday afternoon demos, the numbers shrink to less than hundred... but more local Palestinians participate. This week we came after the Bil'in demo to enforce the comrades in Sheikh Jarrah.

Nabi Saleh weekly demonstration, Dec. 2, 2011

Dozens participated in this week's demonstration in Nabi Saleh against the theft of its lands and spring by the Halamish Israeli settlement and the Israeli occupation that sustains it. Nabi Saleh residents, other Palestinians, and international and Israeli supporters marched peacefully from the center of the village.
This time the procession headed directly towards the hilltop overlooking Nabi Saleh's spring. The approaching protesters caused settlers who were there to run back to Halamish, but the procession was stopped by Israeli soldiers. At this point Israeli forces also raided the village and besieged the protesters, taking over rooftops and shooting tear gas canisters directly at people: unarmed or peaceful demonstrators and residents of the village. However, some people managed to evade the army and place rocks on its way out. Clashes between soldiers and stone throwers erupted, and after a while, the army managed to take control of the main junction. By then it rushed outside the village. Protesters then burned tires and placed rocks on the main road to prevent the army from raiding the village again. During the raid two Palestinian journalists were arrested and taken by the Israeli army: Majd Mohammed from AP and Mohammed Razi from the Palestinian Television. Clashes then erupted beyond the burning tires line. Soldiers advanced on foot and shoot volleys of tear gas canisters by a cannon installed on a jeep. At this phase Israeli forces also used extensively their “scream” machine, which produces a deafening alarm sound.
