The Palestinian non-armed struggle is interwoven with the change in the region and world power dynamics to which popular opinion in the Western countries has contributed its share. The first significant successes of B.D.S. (to which the joint struggle contributes) and the fear of parts of the Israeli capitalist elite from a nearing landslide are threatening the status quo. Though efforts to transfer Palestinians within Israel and the occupied 1967 regions continue, the results of mounting international pressure is resulting in cracks within the Israeli capitalist ruling elite. The pressure for a two-state compromise was expressed in the call of nearly half of the parliament coalition of the government to chart the map of the two-state compromise. Even from the extreme right-wing faction a call was issued for an end to pressure on the Palestinians to "voluntarily transfer" and to formally annex the occupied areas of the West Bank into one Zionist hegemonic state with citizen rights to the Palestinians.

Al Araqeeb

The Israeli authorities want to expel the remaining residents of the Bedouin village of Al-Araqeeb. They have planned the evacuation to take place during the WorldCup when all eyes will be centered on Brazil. They think this will prevent any effective protest that the criminal eviction of Bedouin from their homes and land will arouse. Let's prove them wrong! Help us by signing the appended petition and distributing it as widely as possible. Please paste it to your facebook wall and your twitter account as well

Bil'in

In the last Friday of May, nine Israelis and about 20 internationals Joined the Bil'iners activists in the weekly demonstration against the separation wall, the settlers, and occupation on Friday 30.5.14.

Friday 6.6.14 About a dozen Israelis with the Anarchists Against the Wall and a delegate of internationals joined the Bil'iners in another demo against the separation wall and occupation.
The state forces targeted the Palestinian photographers in an unusual ferocity. An unusual activity of theirs was the dispatching of a small unit to the demo area prior to the demo to hide in an ambush in order to catch stone-throwing youths. So it is now no more a riddle why the Israeli state forces took the measure of erasing the pictures taking by the demonstrators in Bil'in. It was not just to erase the shame of the failed ambush. In a few of the pictures, soldiers are seen collecting the canvas pieces used to hide the soldiers in the ambush.
Wheelchair-bound photographer, Rani Bornat, was attacked today by Israeli solders. They hit him and confiscated his camera and deleted many photos from it before giving it back.

The same treatment was also applied to two other photographers. Two younger photographers succeeded to evade them...

Khalet Ennahla (South Bethlehem)

Today (31.5.14) 6 Israelis with the Anarchists Against the Wall, and a few international activists participated today in an action organized by the South West Bank Popular Resistance Committee in Khalet Ennahla locality to the south of Bethlehem. The main goal of the protest was to reach the endangered land and erect a tent for the land owners where an Israeli occupation outpost is illegally built on that area, just a few meters from the targeted area. Once we arrived at the location, Israeli occupation forces blocked the way leading to the land, intercepted us, attacked us and prevented us from reaching the targeted area and tried to arrest Yousef Abu Maria and Younes Arar. But we insisted to stay and reach that land. Finally we succeeded in reaching the area, erected our tent just opposite the colonial outpost inhabited by 6 terrorist colonists, who are very well guarded and looked after by fascist Israeli occupation forces. Palestinian land owners in that area are not allowed to reach their own land, not allowed to cultivate it, not allowed to dig a water well, not allowed to stay there, while the terrorist colonists living in that area have the freedom to freely move, cultivate the land stolen at gunpoint from the Palestinian farmers and have the necessary infrastructure (water and electricity networks). Our activity aims to support the Palestinian farmers steadfastness on their land, to shed more light on their daily life misery, to encourage other Palestinian farmers to come and cultivate their land in spite of the Israeli occupation forces and terrorist colonists attacks and to encourage Palestinian and international NGOs to support these farmers by helping them rehabilitate their land, cultivate it and to provide them with all means of survival.

Nabi Saleh

Friday 30.05.14 - Palestinians, accompanied by Israeli and international solidarity activists, marched today in Nabi Saleh in support of the hunger striking political prisoners, over 60 of whom are currently hospitalized and in severe mortal danger. The march demanded for their immediate release and chanted in support of their steadfastness, asking to preserve their human dignity and to respect Palestinians rights. Once we arrived at the entrance of the village, the Israeli Occupation Forces - in an attempt to suppress the demonstration, attacked the march with tear gas and rubber bullets. They injured a lot and dozens suffered of sever suffocation, but no major injuries reported. There also has been damage to public and private property.The shebab answered to such violence by throwing stones and managed to chase away the Israeli Occupation Forces who entered the village. The confrontations continued becoming gradually more and more intense and for a while the IOF have closed the gate at the entrance of the village not letting anyone get in or leave.

My village Ni'lin marking the 7th anniversary to the start of the struggle in Ni'lin against the Israeli apartheid wall, yesterday 06.06.14 as more than 250 protesters gathered alone without media,without international activists nor Israeli activists, Israeli soldiers surrounded our protesters from 2 directions and started targeting peaceful protesters with live ammunition. Raed Amireh 41 years old got shot with live bullet in his leg and then Israeli soldiers run and arrested him and beaten him so badly. his brother Murad Amireh 38 years old is a volunteer in the medical team run to give his brother aid, then Israeli soldiers attacked him with huge force!

South of Hebron Hills

This coming Saturday, May 31, we will be heading again to our activity in several locations in the area, accompany Palestinian farmers and shepherds to their lands and help them stand up for their rights.
Without the presence of activists, many farmers don't get the chance to cultivate their land. There is a direct link between the number of activists who come to accompany the farmers and their ability to live a relatively normal life.

Tel Aviv

Thursday, another joint vigil against the intended mandatory service of Israeli Palestinians (Christian and Druze) in the Israeli army. "In front of the Kirya (Israeli Ministry of Defense) in Tel-Aviv against the repeated attempts of the Israeli government to conscript Palestinian youth to the state's army, the IDF. The government tries to demand that Palestinian citizens of Israel fight for it, or even serve it as "National Service", but at the same time never treat them as equal citizens. The state defines itself as a "Jewish State", its symbols and flags are Zionist, but from the Palestinian citizen, who suffers from discrimination and is not even represented in the flag and anthem, the state has the audacity to demand fighting for it. Today Bedouins and Druze are conscripted into the IDF, and so are some of the Christian Palestinians, and the government plots for some time to enact "National Service" in the future on Palestinian Muslims as well."

textPalestine Israel, The joint struggle already eleven years old and continue* 05:15 Mon 13 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

A physical confrontation between between the Israeli armed forces (and settlers) and a joint crowd of Israeli Jews and Palestinian activists in the 1967 occupied territories is so common that people do not sense its unique nature. In addition to PR disaster for the Zionist transfer project it also forced Israel to mostly exclude shooting with life ammunition fire to kill non armed Palestinian demonstrators whenever Israelis might participate. In addition to the usual locations of joint struggles, addition places Palestinians start protests we learn of from the media. The Israeli media to which the agreement with the Hamas about the end of the rocketing was not revealed, come again and again with facts and generals opinions which can only be explained as rationalization to changes forced on Israel in the agreement.

textPalestine-Israel,The joint struggle and the vicious Israeli transfer efforts 05:28 Wed 01 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Arkib (1948 Bedouins), Bil'in, Dahams (Ramla 1948 village), East Jerusalem (occupied 1967 mainly Sheikh Jarah, Shuafat, and the Bedouins of the region) Ma'asarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills - the main locations of the joint struggles the anarchists against the wall are involved in. As the Israeli pretending of striving for any kind of peace was exposed, the transfer efforts are intensified. It seems the hazards taking and gambling of Israel on the continuation of the occupation is increasing. The Israeli government count on the pro Israeli lobby of the US right and the strategic value of Israel in the present troubled time and recklessly disregard the mounting international pressure... though the Israeli officials and the public keep worrying in public about the economic and political pressures.

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle continues with lower intensity: last Friday only 3 Israelis cam... 22:10 Sun 07 Sep by Ilan S. 0 comments

The 50-day war on Gaza ended, after Israel begged for a ceasefire and yielded to major demands from Hamas (some kept in secret even from Israeli government ministers). A majority of Israelis admit that Israel did not win the war but with difficulty admit that Hamas had the upper hand. Ministers passed two weeks ago a classified Cabinet document containing a proposal to place an international force in Gaza, which may mean the end of Israel's occupation of the Gaza Strip and the opening of the Ghetto... and may be a precedent to what could be the end of the occupation of the West Bank). In Israel, the "radical" left is back to "normal"... though many more activists are contemplating joining the comrades who had already lost hope and emigrated. It seems the international pressures of the imperial powers and the advances of the boycott movement are bringing the end of the 1967 occupation sooner than expected. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The war assault on Gaza failed to bring the expected results and even back fired* 14:09 Sun 24 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

The war Israel started with the Hamas was intended to keep it weaker but independent of the west bank authority. A month and a half and Israel cannot stop the Hamas firing of rockets on Israel. The Hamas raised its demand about the lifting of the siege (closer) and the Israeli prime minister failed go get the support of his coalition for the needed compromise. To diminish the losses and to save face Israel with US backing are passing the decision to the UN security council the Israeli ruling elite evaded successfully so many years. The mounting economic pressures create cracks in the Israeli ruling elite and even the populist coalition party head - the foreign minister, start to promote the end of the 1967 occupation. And the joint popular grass root struggle continue - within Israel at the Arkib Bedouins as focus, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Neby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, Israel attack on Gaza ending with a defeat of its arrogant power show* 19:34 Tue 12 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Israel started the attack on the Hamas to sabotage the Hamas compromise with the west bank authority, and restore a weakened Hamas independent rule in the Gaza strip. Hamas compromise was a response to Egyptian closer intended to dismantle the Hamas. The failed Israeli attack will force it to contribute its share to significantly open the closer of the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which was till the attack based on the bare minimal on the margin of humanitarian catastrophe. Whatever the details of the new cease fire and arrangements, the failure of Israel vicious assault to stop the Hamas from firing rockets on Israel is a significant "game changer". The failed attack on Gaza and the continuing popular struggle in the west bank are hastening the international pressures to end the occupation of the West bank and the closer of the Gaza strip.

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle in turbulent times* 21:09 Sun 03 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

The joint struggles in the locations of regular weekly activities of Bil'in, Ni'lin, Ma'sara, Sheikh Jarrah, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Western Hills of Hebron, in the weekend actions and some in between, have focused on the war on Gaza as the more obvious aspect of the occupation. Today, it seems Israel has failed to establish a weakened but independent power in the Gaza Strip - mainly because the atrocities by Israel have failed to recruit international pressure on Egypt to open the siege of Gaza enough. It seems there will be a revival of the accord between Hamas and the West Bank Palestinian Authority that Israel has invested so much effort into sabotaging. It is not clear yet what the the details will be and how the latest Israeli atrocities will influence pressure from the imperial powers on Israel to end the 1967 occupation. Latest news: Israel has started to retreat its forces from the Gaza Strip with no resolution and with rockets still being fired on Israel. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel: The never ending struggle to block the advance of the Zionist settler colonialist ... 20:21 Mon 23 Jun by Ilan S. 0 comments

The last dozen days the Israeli PR machine harp on the lot of the kidnapped three young settlers to justify its efforts to prolong the intense pressure on the Palestinians to "willful" transfer. They pretend to use the kidnapped youth to Cripple Hamas - They really use both in a desperate effort to ignite the third intifada. Bringing 700 soldiers to the less than 2000 inhabited small village Na'ama (bordering Bil'in) to arrest two Hamas activists is just a ridiculous story no one will believe. As the efforts to ignite the third Intifada failed, and the obstruction of the compromise between Hamas and Fatah failed too (one of the most important pillars of the Israel divide and rule), the immanent pressure of world imperial power on Israel to end the occupation of 1967 war is nearing faster than ever. The joint struggle of the Israeli radicals together with Palestinian partners keep the subject in the center of world media. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, joint struggle continues in spite of the low ebb after the Arab Spring lost steam* 16:20 Thu 07 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

The Arab Spring seemed to accelerate the turning of the wheels of history immensely... but the momentum lost gradually and as much as the hope had risen so is the following passivity after the excitement dissipated. In the joint struggle of the anarchists against the wall and the popular comities we had our own surge when the joint struggle had it excitement of novelty and some victories, but it lost its momentum when the higher comity of the popular comities sailed to expand the popular struggle. When the excitement and surge ebb we can still find the company of comrades and lean together our shoulders on the wheels of history who turn to slow on their axes... and continue persistently the struggle (Tsumud). Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'asara, Sheikh Jarrah, South of Hebron Hills and more keep the flame of the joint struggle. [Italiano]

textThe separation fence of Bil'in come again to visit Tel Aviv 21:33 Sat 03 Feb by Ilan S. 1 comments

This Saturday noon, about 20 people of the anarchists against the wall initiative brought again the separation fence of Bil'in to visit Tel Aviv. The North going lane of the Rothschild boulevards was blocked with razor wire spools tied to pillars of traffic signals on its two sides.
After a while drivers who were staked in the intersection succeeded to untie the spools from one of the pillars enabled the resuming of the traffic.
It took half an hour till two police cars arrived but could not remove the remnants of the block as they had no tools with them. So, one of them stayed to guard the razor wire spool and another traveled to search for tools...

textPalestine-Israel, Bil'in, The joint struggle continue - Friday, 9-6-06 demo 14:27 Sat 10 Jun by Ilan S. 0 comments

It was not a few weeks period without the traditional Friday demonstration of the village comity against the separation fence and occupation, together with the Israeli Anarchists against the wall.... It was just weeks with no proper reports - sorry --- Ilan S.
This Friday, as in last few weeks, the demo was not a big one. At noon, about 70 people started the march from the center of the village to the route of the fence - about 30 Israelis, few internationals, media workers and about 30 of the village activists. It was mostly quiet for a while. the village had a ceremony commemorating journalists who were killed and then handed out certificates of recognition to journalists who were injured in Bil'in.
