Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle and the activists of the popular comities continue to contribute to the imminent end of 1967 occupation*

The approaching victory in the struggle to block the advance of the Zionist settler colonialist project and even to force it to retreat a bit do not make the real good people to like the enrolling of history. The approaching defeat make the Israeli elite take desperate steps and do its atrocities in the open. The efforts to transfer the Bedouins within 1948 borders and villagers in 1967 occupied territories escalate. The diminishing support of Israel by the imperial power due to changes in the dynamics of the region, world public opinions and economic losses it cause gradually change the power balance within the Israeli capitalist elite that may be expressed in the coming elections. On the ground, the joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, Sheikh Jarah, Kadum, and South Of Hebron Hills, is gradually expanding to other locations even without the "shield" of Israeli activists.


Today in Bil'in demo 6 Israelis and about doze internationals joined dozens of Bil'iners. Due to changing wind many of us succeeded to resist the efforts of the Israeli armed tugs to disperse us for about an hour. However, when the wind changed to a western one most of us had to return to the village.
This 26-12-14 Friday in Bil'in demo. 5 Israelis and many international activists joined the Bil'iners in the march towards the lands returned and the new separation wall.
The Israeli armed forces stopped us with barrage of tear gas from even approaching the route of the dismantled separation fence. Taking advantage of the friendly northern wind many of us succeeded to around the armored cars and defied them in more than an hour of confrontation.

Turmus Ayya

In our weekly demonstration in Turmus Aya near Ramalah today , in spite all the terror of the Israeli occupation, we have succeeded to plant the olive trees and to raise our voice .
Bil'in activists participated in the demo in Turmus Ayya (where two weeks ago a Palestinian minister was murdered). Two Palestinians, one Israeli, and one international activist were arrested by the Israeli army today (19.12.14 in the peaceful demonstration in Turmus Ayya - Mohammad Al-Khatib (and another 3 activists). Abdallah Abu Rahma. was injured by a direct hit of a sound bomb.
Dozen and the other Palestinian were released s of citizens from suffocation and hit by rubber coated still bullets, after prayers on Friday afternoon, during clashes near the village of "Turmus'ayya"...The Israeli and the International activist released few hours later, Mohammed and the other Palestinian were released on Monday.
Activestills were there to capture it:

Nabi Saleh

19-12-14 The weekly Friday demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh launched this week from the center of the village, as protesters, villagers and solidarity activists a like marched together towards the expropriated spring. The IDF attempted to disperse the march with tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets. Soldiers raided the village, chasing after Palestinian teens. Several soldiers invaded a private residence, threatening to arrest the family’s children for throwing stones.

Friday weekly demonstration, 19.12.2014
Friday 25.12.2014
Hello everyone.
As we reached the village - well before the march started a strong smell of gas.flooded us.
Tearfully we realized the falsify statement that the occupation army fires the means of dispersing "Rioting" gas only on "processions without permission" and "illegal demonstrations". They shoot just because they can.
On Friday, participated in the demonstration "a senior Fatah official of Qalqilya and Nablus" and the demonstration was Particularly festive. Less solemn and dignified was the conduct of the army of occupation. The army was waiting inside the village leaving far behind the lines the forbidden road.
The amount of gas that was fired yesterday in Qadum was unusual even to the experienced of us.The whole Village was shrouded in gas. Plenty of gas. They fired stun grenades, rubber.coated steel bullets and even the first time regular live ammunition (not the 22 kind). Several people were hurt after inhaling tear gas or heated by canisters and were treated on the spot. The leg.of one Palestinian youth was hit by a live bullet. The bullet entered on one side of the leg and came out on the other side. Non-lethal crowd-control measures? Not even their according to their claims. Do I meet the criminal shooter in Salem? Not likely. It seems that everything is possible these days.The tear gas clouds finally dissipated and it was probably the signal to use to spray the skunk stench water so its mark will remain for days.

In Qassum the Qadumians know to protect their home. Some older women moved forward and stood at the edge of the demonstration not far from the main crowd, one carrying a prayer. A group of girls cheerfully advanced with signs - advancing and retreating, back and forth. Will this be a feminist women's demonstration ? Not.But it was a pretty sight.
I wish recovery to the injured.And thanks to Abdullah Qadumi for this video.

Don't Say We Didn't Know 433

On Wednesday morning December 10th, 2014, Border Policemen in Hebron fired teargas near the Kiton Checkpoint (209), not far from the Palestinian elementary school Ibrahimiya. The gas penetrated the schoolhouse and the principal had to send the children home. One child was hospitalized. On the next day the Israeli forces repeated the action and fired teargas grenades. At Hadiya three teargas grenades landed at the entrance of the school, in Al Khalil four teargas grenades landed in the schoolyard. A child was physically hurt from a teargas grenade and hospitalized. Both schools were closed.

On Monday, December 8th, 2014, Israeli government agents escorted by police demolished the Bedouin village of Al Arakib in the Negev once more.

According to the Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality’s home demolition statistics, there were 859 Negev Bedouin homes demolished between July 2013 and June 1014!
78% were demolished by the owners under threat by the inspectors that if they didn’t demolish their homes themselves, the State would demolish them, and the owners would have to pay the State’s demolition costs.
On Wednesday, government representatives escorted by police came to demolish homes in Bedouin localities in the Negev. In Tel Arad, north of Kseife, a large addition to a mosque was destroyed. In A-Zarnug, north of the Beer Sheva – Dimona highway, they demolished two structures.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the back ground of the end of world "status Quo" and as catalyst in our region*

Ended the old world order in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of US, continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine. Europe started to advance its own interests which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinions against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the west bank contribute a lot. It was the approaching of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for election to save him from the timely election when the crisis will be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles focused the light on the ferment and the rising of the popular non armed struggles Israel contemplate enhancing the suppression of with systematic use of live ammunition.


05/12/2014 Friday DEMO.Around 50 persons took part in today's demo.
A group of journalists were targeted by soldiers who threw gas at them.A female ‪#‎journalist‬ was lightly ‪#‎injured‬ on the head.
Soldiers used hails of rubbers bullets at continuous ‪#‎shooting‬ speed and tear gas canisters from their jeeps.
It is needless to say that gas once again entered our village.
The Occupying forces are doing their very best to make ‪#‎Palestinian‬ lives UNBEARABLE on their own HOMELAND,but this can only strengthen our fight for ‪#‎FREEDOM‬ and our LOVE for our BLESSED HOLY LAND".
The lousy wind was not friendly. It did not carry the wind away or to the Israeli armed ones. It was not the usual tear gas as it brought agony to the lungs mainly - not the eyes.

12-12-14 Today I got in Bil'in my weekly fix of tear gas. Ten Israelis, a dozen internationals joined the Bil'iners in a march towards the separation wall. As usual lately the Israeli state force prevented us from even approaching the route of the removed separation fence. However due to the help of the friendly wind few of us succeeded to defy the clouds of the tear gas and come nearer to the old route. Due to miscalculation a tear gas canister greased my left foot but with no damage. After an hour and a half of confrontation most of us returned to the village leaving a dozen or so of youngsters to continue the confrontation.

Al Maasara resists....

12-12-2014, Ziad Abu Ain's blood will not go in vain , protesters chanted slogans praising martyrs that have fallen in the struggle with the Zionist occupiers .
Tens wounded due to the brutality of the Israeli army, locals and International supporters attacked viciously as they marched to the village's confiscated lands .
PSCC calls for all activists to stand their ground and fight in honor of our martyr.

Nabi Saleh

8-Year-Old Girl Is Palestine's Newest Citizen Journalist
Jana Tamimi is the West Bank's youngest citizen journalist and is documenting the resettlement of her town by Israeli settlers.
short video report about Jana Tamimi who is documenting Israel's occupation of Nabi Saleh. Jana is 8 years old and been participating in Nabi Saleh's protests for several years.
05/12/2014 As today’s weekly demonstration was about the end and the youth were about to disperse, an IDF officer and a sniper started walking towards them. This ignited some stone throwing and one of the boys was shot with live ammunition (“tutu”) in his leg. Only then IDF forces left the scene. The office and sniper were carrying only stun grenades and live weapons with them. Other than the clear attempt to provoke the demonstrators, this is another example of how IDF soldiers’ are increasingly using live ammunition to disperse demonstrations in Nabi Saleh and other villages.

David Reeb

Haim Schwarczenberg: In the aftermath of the death of Ziad Abu ‘Ein, residents of Nabi Saleh took the streets to protest his killing and carry on his fight against land annexations and settlements. Abu ‘Ein died shortly after an Israeli soldier assaulted him during a peaceful march in Turmus’aya the day before. He was the Palestinian minister in charge of the popular struggle against the wall and the settlements, and was admired by many for his integrity. Villagers and solidarity activists marched from the center of Nabi Saleh towards its main entrance carrying posters with the slain minister’s photo, and also chanting the names of the village’s own martyrs, Mustafa and Rushdi Tamimi, killed by the Israeli army during local protests. The IDF attempted to disperse the protesters using tear gas canisters. No major injuries reported.

Avi Shavit "The weekly demo in kufr #Qaddum is as violent as ever, with barrages of gas, rubber coated bullets aimed at unarmed protesters, putrid skunk water sprayed on houses and trees with intent of terrorizing the entire village for their just protest against the road block and land theft. But the village knows how to answer these hostile and aggressive intruders with resistance and they know it well."

Haim Schwarczenberg
IDF escalates violence towards protesters: In recent weeks, I have witnessed on several occasions a worrying trend in the way the IDF opts to handle popular protests in the West Bank: In addition to tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets, the army now deploys well-positioned snipers that target protesters with live ammunition, hence the recent sharp rise in injuries (many of them severe) from bullets.

Don’t say we didn’t know #431

The IDF has increased the use of live ammunition against Palestinians demonstrating or throwing stones.

On Thursday, 20th November, 2014, an IDF jeep drove into Deir El-Hattab (east of Nablus). The soldiers claim that stones were thrown at them. They shot live bullets towards children in the vicinity. A youth standing nearby was hurt in his leg by a live bullet. He was taken to hospital.

On Friday, 28th November, 2014, the weekly demonstration against closure of the access road to Kufr Qaddum (west of Nablus), took place. Soldiers nearby shot tear gas towards the demonstrators. Afterwards, they shot rubber coated bullets and live, 0.22” caliber ammunition. Two demonstrators were injured in their chests, and one of them in the hand, too. They were taken to hospital. Ten more demonstrators were injured by rubber coated bullets. Four required hospitalization.

What actually happened there?

On Sunday, November 30, 2014, Mahmoud Al Kadi of Rahat was arrested. Before his arrest he called his family from a bus stop near Sderot and said, "I'm on my way home". As he failed to arrive, his family called him a few times to find out where he was. Finally a policeman answered and informed them that he was in custody at the Kiryat Gat police station. A relative who arrived at the station with some food for him heard him screaming. The policemen notified a friend of his: "Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock he will be brought before a judge for extension of remand". While Al Kadi's wife waited for him at the court, she received a phone call informing her that her husband had committed suicide and that she should come to receive his body.

The family came to the police station and demanded an autopsy, in order to know the cause of death. The police refused. The family appealed to the court, requesting an autopsy. The judge ruled to have the autopsy. The police contested. The judge accepted the contestation. The family turned to the district court and continued to demand that a pathologist on its behalf be present at the autopsy. The district court accepted the demand and ruled that a Jenin pathologist be present. After the autopsy it was ruled that the report be issued in two weeks. On Thursday evening, following the autopsy, Mahoumd was buried.
