Due to the Ramadan day fasting weeks the joint struggle in the various villages was not as usual. As compensation our comrades were involved in the various demos in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In Jerusalem a pink-black block participated in the gay parade. In Tel Aviv comrades demonstrated on Wednesday the Susia demolition orders at the military radio station. On Saturday comrades participated in the commemoration meeting of the massacre at the gay club three years ago. Not far away, we had the social struggle - Occupy Tel Aviv. In spite of a competition by a reformist split of the movement meeting promoted by media and hired leafleting workers, our march and demo was even better than the three previous Saturday demos of July. Tomorrow, I am on my way to the international anarchist congress in St-Imier Swiss, commemorating the 140 anniversary of the first anarchist congress there.

Bil'in

16 Israeli activists with the anarchists against the wall initiative, joined 15 internationals and 2 dozen people of Bil'in in the Friday weekly demonstration against the separation wall, the robbery of Bil'in lands for expanding the near by settler colonialist town Modi'in Elit, and against the pccupation (both the 1948 Nakba and the 1967 Naksa).
As spesial treatment for the ramadan, the shabab brought a tray of eags for the Israeli soldiers who stay behind the wall. Not sure who started first this time but not long after the more dearing ones approached the wall, a "duel" of tear gas grenade shooting and eags started. The strong northern wind enabled us to navigate between the exploading tear gas canisters and the salvos of stinking skunk water spraied at us. For about an hour we received our weekly dose of tear gas - non suffered too much befor yielding to the heat and the Ramadan day fasting and returning to the village. There, most of the Israelis and the internationals enjoied the usual long hospitality of the Burnat family before leaving the village.

Nabi Saleh

Settlers criminals backed by the Israeli government repeatedly burned and cut down olive trees in the village of Nabi Saleh
Jewish settlers attacked last night [Tuesday], fields of olive trees belonging to residents of Nabi Saleh, north of Ramallah, olive trees found burned and cut and shouting to
Friday, unarmed demonstration in Nabi Saleh about to start. Activists report around 150 people in attendance.
Activists report that IOF have withdrawn from the village and are on the mountain.
IOF have moved back into the village and continue to fire teargas, rubber bullets and stun grenades from the gas station and from within the village between houses. They are searching and aresting Israelis and interntional activists.
Six Israeli activists, 4 internationals and one Palestinian were detained in the weekly demo.
According to reports from activists in Nabi Saleh, at least 3 of 6 arrestees are journalists and have been beaten. Reports also indicate that Israeli activist and writer, Miko Peled was one of the arrested, and was hit/beaten and used as a human shield. Four of the Israeli acitivsts arrested were released only ater 6 hours, with two week exclusion order.

Nil'in

Ni'lin is an occupied Palestinian town in the Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate in the central West Bank. The residents of Ni'lin and international activists, have been staging weekly demonstrations against a nearby expansion of the Israeli West Bank barrier. It has been estimated that the completion of the barrier will remove half of Ni'lin's land
Today's demonstration in Nil'in is commemorating the 4th anniversary to the brutal murder of 10 year old Ahmad Mousa. Protestors have reached the gate at the apartheid wall and IOF have opened fire with teargas.

Sheikh Jarrah

Weekly Vigil at Sheikh Jarrah Friday 3/8 at 17:00

Tel Aviv

Demo at military radio station about Susia demolition order on Wednesday:
Palestinians Susya whole village at risk. The Civil Administration issued demolition orders for dozens of buildings in the village. If orders are exercised will be the third expulsion of the Susya residents from their land.
Despite being a village in Area C, ie, an Israeli administrative responsibility in, the village is not connected to infrastructure, does not receive basic civic services and does not get building permits. In contrast, the illegal settler colonialist outposts in the area all connected to all the services required. This is apartheid Israeli at its naked exposer.
In addition, settlements and outposts around the village for residents create an impossible reality. Harassments everyday, destruction of crops, attacks of people, stealing goats and equipment, graffiti of defamations and threats with "price tag". These are all to inflicted on the Susia villagers under the auspices of "security forces" of the Israeli army forces. State of Israel seeks to carry out ethnic cleansing in southern Mount Hebron, to expand settlements and Judaize the area, maximum land under Jewish control with a minimum presence of Palestinians if at all.
Army Radio, will broadcast tomorrow night the program "summer campaign of Radio", hosted by Idan Kevlar. Broadcasting each week a program from other City across the country". The program will air tomorrow from a settlement "town" sitting on the land of Susya.
The military radio station serves as a vehicle of military mendacious propaganda disguised as journalist, trying to white wash the dirt that cannot be cleaned.
Today, [Wednesday] few dozen activists demonstrated at the Jaffa neighborhood of Tel Aviv where the military radio station is located.
Jaffa, Susiya the same revolution! Signs hanging in the evening demonstration at the entrance to the base radio station in Jaffa. Military propaganda station which chose to broadcast a special program of settlement located near the land of the west bank Palestinian village Susya which was issued demolition order. The Israeli Ministry of De fence and the Civil Administration want to destroy Susia as part of the cleansing of the C area of the occupied west bank from its Palestinian villages. The message was that Jaffa is not silent, and sends a message of support to the village Susiya's just struggle.

Saturday

In spite of media refraining from inform on the radical ("servants") demonstration and promoting the reformist ("wannabe masters") one, about two thousands participated with us.
We converge late evening in at the national theater square, and then marched to the state office building at Begin Road. For about 4 hours the Kaplan St. and Begin Road were occupied. (The other one supported by some of the tycoons and centrist party in building succeeded to lure 5 thousand participants.)
After state forces dispersed most of these present at midnight, some of the activists remained on the steps of the state offices building to say good morning and good week to the bureaucrats. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151164370028072 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151093430394208
http://www.flickr.com/photos/activestills/7713357482/in...ream/
8 activists were arrested.

A group of the activist went to the museum square to "visit" the competing reformist meeting to tell them their opinions on pretenders promoted by the establishment.

textPalestine-Israel - a struggle that never ends between Zionist settler colonialism and the indigenous... 15:25 Sun 20 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

When the European pressure on Israel to compromise with the Palestinian elite collected momentum - already diminishing exports, Israel tried to take advanced of the kidnapped three settlers youth applying "plans from the drawer" trying to ignite armed Intifada. Nearly three weeks of propaganda based on lies (as if they are searching for the already known to them to be dead three youth) was all over the media. When lastly the bodies were "found", lies were exposed, and the harassments failed to ignite Intifada. The mounted hate crimes of the Israeli extreme right and murder of a Palestinian youth of the annexed East Jerusalem ignited an extreme response there and within the Palestinian regions within the 1948 borders. Vicious harassment of US-Palestinian youth - cousin of the murdered youth which was video typed became together with the video of the kidnapped cousin became viral all over the world and ignited solidarity demos all over the world.

Many objections were raised about the participation of Israelis in the non-armed struggle in the areas of Palestine occupied in the 1967 war. Some, mostly Palestinians, regarded it as a contribution to so called "normalization". Others claimed that Israeli activists should do their struggle within the Israeli population of the 1948 borders. Many anarchists raised reservations as the Palestinian popular struggle is a kind of capitalist "national independence struggle" for the self-determination of the Palestinian capitalist elite to monopolize the option for the exploitation of the Palestinian working masses - they just ignore the fact that most Palestinians wish for a bi-national democratic whole Palestine and not for a national Palestinian State. Others just do not take upon themselves the obligation to serve as a life-saving shield, as Israeli policy officially forbids the state forces to shoot to kill when Israelis are supposed to be among the demonstrators. Indigenous people struggle against settler colonialist transfer and marginalization is NOT the same as a national Bourgeoisie for "national independence" or "national self-determination". [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle activists insist in the efforts to change the world* 22:02 Mon 19 May by Ilan S. 0 comments

Week after week, on weekend and in the week-days to anarchists and other activists insist of leaning our Shoulders on the wheels of history that revolve too slow and push them as much as we can. There is not much of energy in the masses and many activists lost the urge to participate, but still many of us persist and join the meager efforts of the Palestinians who resist the advancing transfer efforts of the Israeli Zionist project and its state forces. The international solidarity activists who join us bring with them the echoes of world wide expanding support and the message that our struggle contribute a lot to it. The frustrated Israeli state forces continue their murderous efforts to extinguish the popular struggle adding live ammunition from time to time like the last week at the demo in Bitunia (near the Ofer concentration camp) but retreat under mounting international pressure. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The moment of truth is nearing, but short time considerations still block it* 04:25 Wed 07 May by Ilan S. 0 comments

The mounting pressure of world imperial powers seems to cause a section of Israel capitalist elite to accept the compromise offered by the Palestinian elite. Another section still want to delay the deal either to enjoy the short term gains or to improve the deal. They think that they can delay the settlement till the November election in the US with out any risk. Mean time the creeping transfer efforts continue mainly in the C areas of the occupied west bank and the suppression of Palestinian popular rebellion. The popular struggle continue both to slow the creeping transfer and to recruit international pressure to quicken the end of occupation. The joint struggle in the south Hebron hill help the Palestinian farmers Tsumud (persistence), in he Sheik Jarakh it help to curb the transfer in the East of Jerusalem. In Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, and Ma'asara it help to freeze the murderous suppression of the popular struggle at large.

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the background of Israel preparation for withdrawal* 00:03 Wed 30 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

The Israeli Zionist-capitalist elite start to feel that the point of a showdown is nearing fast. They already realized the total backup of the US is diminishing due to the change in its global interests and diminishing of its power... but it still gambling that dragging time may increase their gains in the sphere of lands grabbing and domination on the future Palestinian state. However, the painful understanding that they will not get all that they demanded all the time since the Oslo agreement is already here. The Palestinian ruling elites in the west bank and in Gaza too are on their compromising road as the Fatah old guard and the Hamas are now contemplating sharing the spoils. The joint struggle which contribute its share to the world wide mounting pressure on Israel to compromise continue in spite of the increasing pressure of Israel to put end to it.

textPalestine-Israel, Though it seems lot of things are going to change soon - it is in a slow motion* 04:26 Wed 23 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

The prolonged status quo between the Israeli ruling elite and the Palestinian elite reach a climax. Changes in the balances of power within the Israeli capitalist elite is still in slow motion, but you can feel the vibrations. The joint struggle of the Palestinian grass root activists and the Israeli radicals is not expanding, but the new wave of total refusnic military service of Israeli youth - which already passed the hundred seems promising. The joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah, South Hebron Hills, Arkib (within Israel) and other places from time to time keep the flame in spite of the harsh repression. The involvement of Israeli Jews and to a lesser measure international activists still prevent a massive bloody massacre of the unarmed Palestinian demonstrators. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel The struggle and the joint struggle continue in spite of the stand still* 13:34 Mon 14 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

May be it is because the Arabic Spring and the wave in the developed countries raised too much the hopes for change followed by disillusions. May be it was (like the big wave in Israel that mobilized about 10% of the population) a kind of releasing pressure valve... The struggle still continue, but the number of participants diminished and the moral of those who continue is not high. The smaller flame of hope for a radical change in our tortured home land is nourished by the change in the imperial power balance, the gradual withdrawal of the US from the region and the increasing pressure for change by Europe with the B.D.S. at its front. But, the joint struggle continue, and the gradual bunt out of many of the old timer activists of the anarchists against the wall is partly replaced by the new wave of total refusnics of mandatory military service for high school graduates and the activists of the anarchist-communist Ahdut. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint popular struggle continues to backdrop of "talks" that change nothing 18:23 Fri 04 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

The joint struggle continues; even many activists have been "burned out" while waiting for short-term gains and victories. The advances in the international arena are paradoxically reducing the flame of most people in spite of the increase in suppression efforts by the anxious settlers and the Israeli authorities. The hard core of the activists continue their struggle in spite of the increased suppression, encouraged by every small success, by every tear grenade returned to the harassers, by every failure to cut a demonstration short. Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Ma'sara, the South Hebron Hills, and Sheikh Jarrah continue the weekly demonstrations in a stubborn mood of "tsumud" (persistence) - the long, long refusal to yield to the expulsion-transfer of the Zionist settler project. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue on back ground of an immanent crash of "negotiations* 02:35 Thu 20 Mar by Ilan S. 0 comments

The political negotiations intended to prevent the involvement of international forums by the Palestinian ruling elite do not stop the joint struggle of popular movement which invigorate the B.D.S. efforts and the local non armed struggle. The increased suppression of the struggling communities and the transfer efforts in a choice location do not extinguish the flames of struggle and the persistent of the "Tsumud". Night raids in Ni'ilin, Bil'in, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum, and arrests increase. The threats of dispersing the Friday demos with live ammunition towards the stone throwing Shabab is expressed from time to time by shots at youth legs. In Bil'in, the members of the Israeli anarcho-communist organization start to fill the gap resulted from the diminishing participation of the anarchists against the wall initiative. Our black and redNblack flags are accepted in a friendly mode. [Italiano]

imageHorizons for the Syrian revolution May 23 by Mazen Kalmamaz 0 comments

The main features of the Syrian revolution are its youthful, spontaneous aspect, and the fact that it was created on the streets and is linked directly to the people. It is a revolution without centralized control, led by insurgent individuals. Consequently, no-one can claim to govern it or lead and the reason is simple: the young insurgents rose up spontaneously and there are no signs of participation by religious elements, whose ideas are extremely reactionary, or indeed by any other tendency.

Ahmad Husam Yousef Mousa, 10 years old, was murdered yesterday as he demonstrated together with his friends against the separation wall which is being constructed on the lands of his village Ni'ilin. When Ahmad and his friends reached the construction site the soldiers shot rubber bullets at them and they began to
retreat. At that point one of the soldiers shot a live round at Ahmad's head from a distance of about 10 meters.
