Interwoven with the Western imperial interests in the region, the nationalist-socialists Zionists initiated the immigration of nationalist Jews to Palestine. It interwove with the Ottoman-German-British-US dynamics and gradually collected momentum. As one of the last islands remaining from the colonial era (mainly because it involved the big settlers community and served strategic interests), its time is running out.... and faster since the "Arab Spring". Sensing the end, the die-hard leadership of the Zionist settler colonialists - in a last desperate effort - continue as if the end were not in sight and even increase their onslaught with diminishing restraint. To the background of this month's election, the onslaught is collecting momentum over recent weeks - as if the third Intifada were what the Israeli elite wanted. The popular struggle collects momentum and more so at the weekends. [Italiano]
Within the 1948 borders in the arid south (Negev), the resistance to transfer continues. Al-Araqeeb's drummers today during the weekly protest at Lehavim junction!
Join the protest - every Sunday at 3:30 pm at Lehavim junction
"Heading to #Bilin to commemorate two years to the death to the killing of Jawaher Abu Rahmeh. On the day Jawaher was killed the army bombed us with crazy amounts of tear gas, which suffocated Jawaher to death. No one was charged, no one was tried for the killing of this woman, just another Palestinian protester killed by the only democracy in the Middle East".
Israeli forces already shooting tear gas, sound bombs and skunk water at Palestinian, Israeli and International activists.
This Friday's demonstration in Bil'in commemorated the killing of Jawaher Abu Rahmah by overexposure to army tear gas two years ago. Before the march even began, soldiers crossed the wall, and in an act of state-sponsored bullying and terror set fire to an agricultural warehouse near the wall. While protesters were marching with Fatah, PFLP and Mubadra flags, fire fighters were extinguishing the fire and preventing it from spreading to the olive groves and the adjacent Abu Lamun oak tree reservation. The protesters gathered away from the wall, and while speeches were made, some children advanced to taunt the soldiers, suffering showers of skunk water. Later on, protesters marched forward, and in a series of well-orchestrated maneuvers that included some strategic stone throwing, managed to set ladders against the wall, climb them, and post Palestinian flags on the wall under constant showers of tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets.
State forces set fire to the Abu Lamun wood structure. http://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/1...n.jpg
Just another glimpse of the increasing amount of expressed helplessness of the Israeli armed forces in confronting the mounting unarmed third Intifada:
Some activists still remember the long months the Israeli state forces succeeded in preventing the Friday demonstration from touching or even approaching the separation fence.
Protesters marched from Martyrs Square at the village center towards the main road when they were attacked by Border Patrol soldiers with tear gas and massive amounts of rubber bullets as well as putrid skunk water. Later on, the soldiers invaded the village, spraying skunk water all over residential homes, then proceeded to storm several houses and arrest activists. One Palestinian activist was brutally beaten before dragged away by the soldiers, who also refused a medic to examine him. At least two more Israeli activists were also arrested. Before retreating towards the main entrance of the village, the soldiers continue to shoot local youths, using rubber bullets and a few rounds of live ammunition.
Activists report that the IOF are also firing large amounts of teargas and sprayed skunk directly at homes, as well as firing rubber-coated steel bullets.

Israeli soldiers were seen inside a cloud of tear gas, after protesters threw back to them tear gas canister during the weekly protest against the occupation and settlements in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on January 4th, 2012.
Under the military order 101, all protests organized by Palestinians in the West Bank are deemed illegal by the Israeli authorities and are routinely dispersed violently, leading to countless fatalities, injuries and arbitrary arrests.
The Hearing of Ottman, who was beaten and arrested During Friday demo in Nabi Saleh will be held on Tuesday (Exact hour is not known yet)

The popular committee of Issawia (occupied east Jerusalem) invites supporters to join them in their protest against police violence and the seizure of their lands.
Meeting place: the gas station in the entry to Issawia, this Friday at 12:30
From Issawia to Sheikh Jarrah 4.1.2013
Around 60 activists, Jews and Palestinians, participated in a solidarity visit in Issawiya, which has been targeted by violent attacks by the Israeli occupation.
Mohammad Abu Hummus: "They want us to lower our heads, they want us to give up, but that won't happen. Our children have been shot at with tear gas during their classes, inside the school. We told the Jerusalem municipality: Where have we come to, what's happening to our children, who are besieged by fear? The police tells us that it's an "operation".
What is an "operation"? To force a community to accept the loss of their lands, with a strangulating planning regime, to force it to stop protesting to release the political prisoner Samer Issawi from administrative detention. Terrorizing an entire population - that is what they call an "operation."

On Wednesday, 26th December, 2012, the IDF blocked one of the routes connecting the Palestinian towns Yatta and Samu'a and villages Susya, Mnezel, Sha'b El Butm, Bir El'Id, Qawawis, Jinba and others, most of them are in the area of Firing Zone No. 918. The road is used to carry water and food to those villages as well as passage of teachers and students; it is also the shortest way to the Yatta hospital.
On Monday, 24th December, 2012, government representatives arrived in the Bedouin township Segev Shalom and demolished a home. They went on to uproot 70 olive trees in the Bedouin village El Garin (near Hura).
