Palestine-Israel, The third Intifada collects momentum - this week with prisoners at its center*

category mashriq / arabia / iraq | community struggles | news report author Monday February 25, 2013 18:50author by Ilan S. - AAtW, ainfos. Mazpenauthor email ilan at shalif dot comauthor address Tel Aviv Report this post to the editors

In spite of the reluctance of the Palestinian ruling elite, the third Intifada is collecting momentum. In Hebron, pictures of the yearly Shuhada joint action show a chain of Palestinian Authority soldiers blocking the Palestinian demonstrators from clashing with the Israeli state forces. However, the general mounting tension, the long hunger striking prisoners, the initiatives of the popular committees... and the Israeli "punishments" together with settler colonialist terror actions are feeding the gradual escalation. It is not sure yet if it will explode like a powder keg which got a spark or just escalate gradually. The regular locations of joint weekend struggle persist with some new ones, not yet regular.

Hebron / Al-Khalil

A crowd of Palestinian, Israeli and international activists is gathering at the entrance to Shuhada Street in Hebron, West Bank to start the demonstration "Open Shuhada Street"
Demonstrators march during a protest against the closure of the Shuhada street to Palestinians, in the West Bank city of Hebron February 22, 2013. Hundreds of demonstrators, including foreign and Israeli activists, gathered on Friday, marking the 19th anniversary of the closure of the street, which was closed by the Israeli army in 1994 following the Hebron mosque massacre by Baruch Goldstein, an Israeli settler, who went on a rampage inside Al Ibrahimi Mosque, killing 29 Palestinian worshipers.

After a long confrontation the PA police officers formed a line between the Israeli soldiers and the protestors, brining the demonstration to an end.

A number of Israeli and international activists participate in the protests of Hebron by blocking the Israeli army from reaching the Palestinian protesters.

Bil'in

This Friday too many Bil'in activists went to demonstrate in Hebron and in front of Ofer prison. Thus, the demo was small, but even a peaceful march escorted by Hanna's lovely trumpet suffered several rounds of gas. In the meantime, further south, a handful of shabab were busy climbing the wall, and diverting the soldiers' attention with stones

Jayyous

Jayyous Weekly Demonstration: Reclaiming the Dignity of the Land
"The people of Jayyous invite you to join our weekly demonstrations against the re-routing of the wall further into Jayyous land. The new rout of the wall is in violation of Israel's own supreme court, which in 2009 decided it should be moved to the so-called Green Line. The work on the new rout has already begun, and it will annex 300 Dunams of Jayyous land, uprooting over a 1000 olive trees. Additionally, settlers have placed 6 caravans, expanding the Tsofim settlement on our land. We are asking every one of you to come and be part of our popular resistance to reclaim our land and its dignity.
See you at the Jayyous main mosque, Friday after prayer."
Jayyous Youth Committee

Weekly demonstrations resume in Jayyous
Protesters were met with tear gas canisters at today's demonstration in Jayyous. One person was hit by a canister in the back.

After midday prayer, around 150 residents from Jayyous, joined by a handful of Israeli and International activists, marched from the center of the village towards the fence located on the outskirts of Jayyous.
Soon after protesters reached the area, Israeli army and border police started to shoot tear gas canisters at the crowd. As clashes erupted, Israeli forces chased the demonstrators through the fields while shooting more tear gas canisters, making them run back and forward. One of the protesters was hit by a tear gas canister in his back and was taken away by an ambulance. Confrontations lasted until sunset.
Last Friday, Jayyous, a village located northeast of Qalqilya, began to hold weekly demonstrations against the re-routing of the Wall and expansion of the nearby Jewish-only settlement of Tsofim. Settlers from Tsofim have recently created an outpost of six caravans, expanding the settlement westward, on the village's land. Additionally, the new route of the Wall will annex 300 more dunums of Jayyous land.

"Today's demonstration in NabiSaleh has begun, protesters started to march towards the spring. IOF have invaded the village, accompanied by skunk truck."

Activists in Nabi Saleh are reporting that the demo is over for the day but the IOF remain at the entrances/exits of the village. One person injured with rubber bullet to the leg, but is in okay condition. "The 14 year old boy who was injured by at least 3 rubber coated steel bullets and kidnapped by the IOF and taken to the check point tower has been evacuated to hospital in Ramallah."

Kafr Qaddum

Friday. Over 100 residents from Kafr Qaddum, together with Israeli activists, participated in today’s demonstration, dedicated to Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike. After midday prayers, protesters marched from the center of the village up the main road leading to Qedumim settlement. Confrontations erupted between demonstrators and Israeli forces, which shot large quantities of tear gas canisters, resulting in dozens of protesters suffering from suffocation. The demonstration finished at around 2pm, when Palestinian protesters marched down the road back to the village.

Since 2011, residents of Kafr Qaddum have been resisting the land grab and the road closure by holding weekly demonstrations. The Israeli army often violently suppresses the protests shooting tear gas canisters and stun grenades.

Sheikh Jarrah,

Residents of Sheikh Jarrah in occupied Jerusalem call on you to sleep over at the protest tent set up nar the house of the Shamsaneh family on Thursday, 28 Feburary, 2013. The Shamsneh family members face an eviction under the pretext that they are unprotected tenants despite the fact that they have been living and paying rent for almost 50 years. The eviction threat that hovers over the heads of the Shamsnehs is part of a a clear Zionist plan to displace Sheikh Jarrah Palestinians and to judaize Jerusalem. And the Shamsna family is not the first Palestinian family to face such a threat nor would it be the last, as tens of Palesitnian families in Jerusalem face threats of eviction or house demolition. The open sit-in at the Shamsaneh protest tent begins on Thursday at 4pm, and the evening will include several cultural and art exhibitions that will be announced later.

------------------- Don't say we did not know #350 -----------------------

On Saturday night, 9th February, 2013, at about 9:00pm, settlers came from the direction of the settlements Karnei Shomron and Ganei Shomron to the eastern end of the Palestinian village 'Azzun, and threw stones at village homes. Villagers tried to get rid of them. IDF soldiers who came managed to get the settlers out. Then, soldiers arrived in the village from the north and attacked some villagers. Those soldiers then blocked the entrance to the village with a checkpoint. Ever since, entry to and exit from the village has only been allowed on foot. Five people going through the checkpoint have been arrested.

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]

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.
