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

PalIsra, It is already one state even if no one recognize it as such except the hard liners rightists*.

The bad news are that the overwhelming majority of the Israelis support it - including the centrists and even the Zionist left (who claim they want "two states" solution but with impossible pre conditions). The good news are that the imperial powers whose support to the status qua are gradually yielding to public opinions pressure of their citizens who do not agree with the Israeli apartheid-transferor regime. The non armed joint struggle initiated wide attention and drew participants from all over the world with international movement dedicated to put end to the Israeli occupation. (A short video about two kids in Bil'in got in few days two million views.). The anarchists against the wall and other like minded among the palestinians and abroad still struggle for the end of the Zionist settler colonialist/transferor project and not just for the end of 1967 occupation.


Friday, 25-12-15, Last demo in 2015 in Bil'in. 4 members of the anarchist-communist organization Ahdut (Unity) joined 10 activists of the anarchists against the wall initiative and 3 internationals with the local activists.
The Israeli state force were few and less belligerent than usual, They "allowed" us to approach the old route of the separation fence and even to photograph the form declaring the location as closed military zone. The wind was friendly and the state force were not "generous" with the tear gas grenade. After about an hour the state force went away and the demo ended.

Friday 8-1-16, 11 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative and the anarcho-communist Ahdut (Unity) joined international activists and the villagers in the weekly demo. Just as we started marching down the hill the Israeli state forces started to shower us with tear gas and sponge coated bullets. After about 30 minutes of confrontation the state force went away and we declared another victory.

The video was filmed in Bil'in-Palestine and is dedicated to the soul of the martyr Oudai Jaber (was killed 1st of August 2014) by the occupying forces during a demonstration in Ramalla in support of Gaza) and to all the children of Palestine.

Thanks to all the friends who called to check if I was at the shooting in tlv today!
In fact I was at a mass shooting, happy to escape unharmed, today and many days in the past. But it was in a civil protest for solidarity freedom and equality of Palestinians, and the shooters wore uniform. So hardly anybody cares....


Sunday 10-1-16, Anarchists of Ahdut (Unity) participated in vigil of solidarity with the refusnic Tair Kaminer. After the vigil she entered the recruitment compound and was jailed for 20 days for refusing military service.

On Wednesday, 23rd December, 2015, IDF soldiers came to the Palestinian village Khirbet Umm El-Jamal, near El-Maleh, in the Jordan Valley, and demolished a sheepfold that had been built by one of the residents so his sheep were protected against the rain and cold.

Confiscation of land in the West Bank or its declaration as state land is a lengthy procedure. Seldom do we learn about these activities as they are happening in real time. I regard land confiscation and its declaration as state land to be a matter of special importance, for the simple reason that these are “legal” means to get the Palestinians’ feet off the land. Driving Palestinians from their land is at the heart of the conflict.

On 30th December, 2015, Palestinians reported the confiscation of 300 dunums (dunum=1000 sq.m) of land belonging to the Palestinian village Fasayil, in the Jordan Valley. To the best of our knowledge, the land was proclaimed state land in 1999, and is situated just over a kilometre north of the settlement Yafit. During the past year, settlers planted palm trees there and established a plant nursery, using about 250 dunums.

On 22nd December, 2015, the IDF started carrying out earthworks on the lands of Shufa, next to the military base near Avnei Hefetz settlement. The Palestinian landowners were given no prior notice as to the incursion onto their land. It is worth noting that the settlement Avnei Hefetz was established in 1987 on 44 dunums. Today it spreads across some 3,000 dunums, expropriated from local Palestinian villages (dunum=1000 sq.m). The Palestinian landowners whose land borders the settlement are only permitted limited access to their land.


On Wednesday, government representatives, under police escort, went to the Bedouin village Rakhme, next to Yeruham, and demolished a mosque.
