Those involved with the Bedouin struggle pay for it.

The unprecedentedly prolonged pre-trial detention of those involved with the Hura demo against the transfer of the Bedouins - including a Jew - may be in revenge for the dropping of the Praver transfer law, or a sign of an entirely new mode of suppressing dissent from the left. The state force pressures on the Palestinians involved in the joint struggle is escalating. The new front of conflicts between the state and the African refugees is escalating. The failure of the state to comply with the law passed against building concentration camps for refugees has ignited resistance from the refugees, culminating in a demo by a few thousand people on late Saturday evening in the commercial part of Tel Aviv, which a few hundred Israeli activists joined. The "electricity in the air" seemed to promise that the 50 thousand refugees are not going to take it passively any more. Israel may be forced to comply with the international refugees conventions.

About a dozen Israelis (half of them from the anarchist-communist organization, Ahdut) joined about two dozen Bil'iners on Friday 20-12-13 against the occupation and the separation-robbing fence/wall. After the non violent demonstration ended, we found ourselves behind the lines of the Israeli armed forces war/confrontation between them and the village shabab.

Nabi Saleh

Palestinian, Israeli and international solidarity activists marched today in the village of Nabi Saleh in honor of the village's martyrs Mustafa and Rushdi Tamimi, who were shot and killed by the Israeli military in 2011 and 2012 respectively. The marchers first passed by the homes of the martyrs' families, presenting them with commemorative plaques. From there, protesters continued towards the checkpoint, as the IOF fired barrages of tear gas canisters, rubber bullets and stun grenades in an attempt to disperse them. No major injuries reported.

After a few hours the two were released. Then at 10 AM, about two hours before the demonstration was due to start, another group of soldiers came for Murad Eshtewi. They arrested him brutally spraying his eyes with pepper spray from very close quarters though he was not showing any resistance to the arrest and throwing stun grenades around him. One was thrown at his leg.
