Arkib, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Neby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills.

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]

Bilin

In spite of the heightened level of harassment of the Israeli state forces during the Gaza war, the joint struggle of Israelis, internationals, and Bil'iners persist in the efforts to try to march towards the gate in the separation wall. The previous Friday 15.8.14 we succeeded to reach the gate and even stay there for a while in spite of harassment. This Friday, in spite of a relatively large contingent of the Israeli anarchist-communist Ahdut (Unity) the Israeli state forces stopped us and after a short verbal confrontation they flooded us with tear gas and we retreated.

Nabi Saleh

22/08/2014 Israeli and international solidarity activists joined Palestinian residents of the Ramallah-district village of Nabi Saleh to protest against the ongoing massacre in Gaza. So far, over 2000 people have been killed in five weeks, the majority of whom were civilians.
The march, which began at the village's center, continued to the main road, where the IOF attempted to disperse it using barrages of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets. No major injuries reported.

South Hebron Hills

Today 16-8-14 at the South Hebron Hills, accompanying Palestinian farmers to their land - quiet day. Grazing and working in the valley near Um-el-Amad which is closed by military order to Israelis (that's a good thing and it means success, after 2 years of struggle).

Tel Aviv

Saturday 23.8.2014 like every other Saturday of the last weeks:
Protest against the war and the massacre in Gaza, Israeli activists protest in center Tel Aviv against the Israeli attack on Gaza, calling to end the war and the.occupation...
This Saturday the police changed their tactics: instead of mobile fences, they "mingled with the protesters at the national theater square. After about half an hour when the late comers arrived, the police "suggested" that the few hundreds of us will march (for security reasons) through the near by boulevard towards a more central intersection which is a less opened space - which we cheerfully accepted.

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, 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, The (joint) struggle and the changes in the international arena start a new power ... 09:57 Wed 11 Jun by Ilan S. 0 comments

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.

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.

textPalestine-Israel, Bil'in, the traditional Friday joint demonstration 05:44 Sat 13 May by Ilan S. 0 comments

This Friday demonstration was in reference to the coming Sunday hearing of the case of the separation fence cutting the majority of the lands of the village Bil'in (not robbed yet by previous acts of Israel) at the Israeli highest court of "justice". For this demonstration arrived about 40 Israeli activists recruited by the Anarchists Against The Wall initiative' 20 international activist, people from neighboring villages and Ramalla, and 20 media workers - Israelis, Palestinians, and from other parts of the world. Together with about hundred of people of Bili'in we started at noon the march on the road to the route of the separation fence. The march was ended like in the last previous demos at the entrance to the route of the fence and the way to the olive orchards on the other side of the fence.

textPalestine-Israel, Bil'in, Friday 5-5-06, the joint struggle continue with partial nonviolence 02:05 Sat 06 May by Ilan S. 0 comments

In the late morning hours thirty Israelis arrived tin the Anarchists Against The Wall convoy. Ten international activists arrived too. and also some media teams. At the meeting place the comers met each other and activists of the village local comity for the struggle against the separation fence and robbing of most of the lands of the Bil'in villagers. Also was there the structure of this Friday demo theme. The main structure was a circular fence of barbed wire which symbolize the concentration camps the closures and encirclements of small regions of the Palestinian areas are subject to. The two hours preceding the demo were used as usual for socializing, for coordination of the various aspects of the joint struggle, for "education" of people this was their first participation in a demo in bil'in, and for debriefing reporters of various media channels - Israeli, Palestinian, and international, who came to cover our demo.
