Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places. [Italiano]


Today 24-4-15 demo. 15 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative joined about dozen internationals and the village activists in a march towards the returned lands and the separation wall. The Israeli armed forces blocked the road at the route of the dismantled separation fence. Today they let us come very near before they started to flood us with tear gas. We retreated a bit but did not yield to them as the northern wind was most the time friendly to us. After a long advances and retreats the state forces gave a last barrage of tear gas and went away. With a small victory we returned to the village.
Bil'in Weekly Demo 1-5-15 - Te smallest and the shortest memo ever. Only 4 Israelis (as other 1st of May activities competed) joined about dozen international activists and the usual Bil'iners. The Israeli armed force was waiting to us nearer than their usual position and started shooting tear gas before we even left the built area of the village.
Due to the northern wind the most daring of us evaded the tear gas mass by going to the northern side of the olive trees orchard.
After few short intrusions of few soldiers who added metal bullet rubbed with rubber to the shooting that did not injure any one they just left less than half an hour that was the shorter confrontation till now.

Al Ma'asara
المعصرة 24.4.2015 Al-Masara
Friday 24.4.2015. A man with a flag is trying to pass through 20 soldiers that block the road. They wouldn't let him, he knows that much, so he tried to make them talk. Their commander gave them a specific order not to open their mouth, so they reduced their expressions into face gestures.
"… Why are you letting the settlers pass through my village and I can't? … Do you really hate me so much that you will follow such stupid orders? … Admit that you hate me because I am a Palestinian! … Refuse the orders and talk…Refuse the orders and let me pass! "
