Araqeeb, Bil'in, Dahams, Occupied East Jerusalem: mainly Sheikh Jarrah, Shuafat, Silwan, Ma'sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'lin, Qaddum, south of Hebron hills and the Jordan valley Palestinians

Throughout the years Israel has tried to neutralize the pressure of more enlightened people by hiding its brute racism and murderous activities by recruiting the memory of the Holocaust as justification for all its heinous acts when revealed. However, as the masquerade has been exposed in recent years and more and more are disillusioned from the "Zionist dream", the restraints are being loosened fast. The rightists preach their extreme racist ideology in the open. The "paramilitarist" settlers get a freer hand. The transfer of Palestinians both within the 1948 borders and these occupied in 1967 is being done in the open. Though it is still restricted mainly to the Israeli area of the Bedouins in the south and the C agricultural regions of the 1967 borders, the "gloves" have been removed. In the same new mode, repression of the non-armed popular struggles has intensified in the last few weeks and we cannot guess what the limit of the new repression mode will be - if at all.

20.10.14, Ofer Israeli military court finds Abdullah Abu Rahma , a well known activist and coordinator of popular resistance committee in Bil'in, guilty of obstruction of military vehicles . In 2012 ,Abu Rahma among other activists demonstrated in Bil'in against Israeli army bulldozers . Bulldozers were trying to block the road with huge concrete blocks who also serve as a shield and secure post for army snipers and soldiers. Abu Rahma was arrested back then and released a few hours later as he made bail. A year later, Abu .Rahma Rahmeh was not called for any court hearing . All eye witnesses confirm the Abdullah just stood on the bulldozer but he never posed danger to any Israeli armed to-the-neck soldier.
Abu Rahma an EU recognized human rights defender was detained twice before, though what he was doing was considered legal by The EU.
1-12-2014 is the date when Abdullah will receive his new sentence..!

Bil'in

Friday in Bil'in. 10 Israelis, with 40 internationals joined the villagers in the olive harvest procession. The Israeli armed forces tried to block our way to the liberated lands between the removed separation fence and the new separation wall. We managed to march on the fields paths and confronted the army jeeps so in spite the teat gas that the north east carried away we succeeded to make them retreat and came near the wall.
After a long confrontation we returned to the village - tired but with satisfaction.

Al-Ma'sara

17-10-2014, Al-Ma'sara, occupied Palestine. The weekly demonstration against settlements and apartheid wall started at the city center and moved towards the village entrance blocked by a huge number of Israeli soldiers . As the protestors got close, the soldiers fired a massive tear gas and sound bomb attack to push demonstrators back, yet a few brave men and women kept pushing and reached route 60 ( the main road connecting settlements in the area ), and blocked it for an hour before the soldiers viciously reopened it.
Popular resistance committees in the area said that they will not stop before they free their village and reclaim their stolen lands.

24-10-2014, Al Masara -occupied Palestine.
Occupation forces suppressed the weekly demonestration in Al-Ma'sara and prevented the demonestratores from accessing to the lands confiscated. This demonestration, which organized by the Popular Committees Against the Wall and Settlement in the village, is in solidarity with the Al-Aqsa Mosque and as a condemnation of incursions carried out by the occupation and the settlers from one hand, and of the actions of hitting Palestinians with cars by settlers.
The demoenstration began at the center of the village with the participation of dozens of villagers and foreigners. They waved Palestinian flags and filled the village streets. Demonstrators chanted in solidarity with the prisoners and with Al-Aqsa Mosque.
After arraiving the entrance of the village, dozens of Israeli soldiers were blocking the entrance and forming a human barrier to prevent the demonstrators from reaching the confescated lands. The Israeli occupation forces detained citizens and prevented vehicles from passing.
The popular committees confiremed that they will continue resistting the wall and settlements in the village that popular resistance will until defeating the occupation. The also demanded the international community to intervene to stop the violations of the occupation forces against the Palestinian people.

Qaddum

The weekly demo against the Israeli occupation today at kufr qaddum.
Lots of tear gas grenades fitted directly. skunk juice used to stink protesters and in particular the houses around. And many rubber coated steel bullets fired on us.
Nearly 200 participated! There was One injury. Happy olive harvest season to all
Tens of Palestinians required medical treatment today due to cases of suffocation in Kafr Qaddum. Tens were wounded today, Friday 17 October, due to suffocation during demonstration in Kafr Qaddum due to attempts by the Occupation to suppress the demonstration in Kafr Qaddum against Israeli settlement and which brought about a victory for al-Aqsa.

The demonstration in Kafr Qaddum started at Omar bin Khitab mosque with the participation of tens of families from the village holding flags of Palestine and denouncing the belligerent campaign directed at al-Aqsa.Upon the arrival of protesters to a road which had been closed, the Israeli Occupation Forces attacked by shooting gas canisters, rubber coated metal bullets and spraying sewage water, leading to the suffocation of tens of protesters. The coordinator of the rally stressed that the Kafr Qaddum march had brought victory to the al-Aqsa Sanctuary which is being subjected to brutal aggression by settlers and the Israeli Occupation Forces. He noted that the occupation deliberately sprayed houses with waste water instead of digging up the road and throwing dirt on people's homes.

"At the weekly demo against the occupation in kufr qaddum today, we were near 100 locals, 5 internationals and 3 Jews.
the Israeli army and the locals were more passive than usual today, partly due to the olive harvest the army took positions in a house, outside by the road, and up on the hill above us. Dozens of gas canisters were fired directly at us, we set some tires afire, and thankfully there were no injuries nor arrests."
Open the village road! Free Palestine!
Happy olive season :) "

Don't Say We Didn't Know 424

Every year during the olive harvest season, Palestinian farmers and their families are subjected to assaults by Jewish settlers in the Occupied Territories. On Thursday, October 9, 2014 inhabitants of the Palestinian village Yasouf, east of Salfeet town, discovered about 70 of their olive trees cut down. The by-now-familiar inscription "Price Tag" was found at the site. The next day, Friday, Jewish settlers lit up a tire and tried to set fire to the village olive grove. The farmers put it out. On Saturday a family harvesting their olives was assaulted by settlers. The father and mother were hurt, the mother had to be hospitalized. The settlers had also damaged the family car that was there.

In Wadi el Na'am south of Be'er Sheva the representatives violated a court order to suspend the demolition of one of the houses and demolished the home of a young couple shortly to be wed.

Seven of the injured were evacuated to hospital for treatment and five were arrested, including the young woman about to be married.
