Though Israel failed in its last open assault on the Gaza Strip, it still succeed in its transfer efforts. The drowning of a refugee ship with 450 mainly Gaza people reflect the partial success of Israel transfer efforts that for the never ended efforts since 1948. The siege on Gaza join the pressure on both Palestinians within the 1948 borders and that of the 1967. The big masses were driven out during the 1948 and 1967 wars, but efforts continued with all means possible. Some expelled by force some were moved within the border as pressure to "voluntary transfer". Within the 1967 borders, the Israeli efforts are targeted on the villages and Bedouins living in area C where the joint struggle to resist it is mainly focused in the South of Hebron Hills. And the joint struggle in Arkib, Dahamsh (1948 borders), and Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah (East Jerusalem) continue "as usual". [Italiano]
Friday 12-9-14 in. Bil'in: 6 Israeli and dozen internationals converged with the villagers at the Abu Lamun orchard. Before the demonstration started the Israeli state forces flooded the people with tear gas. Many went round the cloud of tear gas waking along the separation wall from a distance. As the wind changed the tear gas failed to drive the people away till military cars brought the soldiers nearer. Though there was no march or demo the commander threatened the people who were on the way to the village with arrests for participation in the "unlawful demo" that never really happened this Friday.
Any way, the Israeli activists paid this week their "rent" for the presence in Palestine.
Bil'in, Friday, 19-9-14 two stages of the demonstration in which 15 Israelis, 20 internationals, and local activists, converged near the separation wall in the Abu Lamun oaks groove and started to walk towards the near by separation wall.
The Israeli state forces did not like the location of the demo so they floated us with tear gas forcing us to go to the north - not far from the gate in the wall.
after a long while they did not like the second location which was out of the range of the tear gas grenades so they came with their armored cars shooting tear gas and bullets coated with rubber and arrested three of us - one from each nationality... The local one succeeded to escape and Israeli and the international activists were taken to a far away police station for "interrogation".

Friday 19-9-2014 - Even before the demonstration began, soldiers and Border Police forces assembled next to the convergence point. Without warning or provocation on the part of those who came to demonstrate, the occupation forces began to charge.They used massive amounts of tear gas. A group of three soldiers ran into the village and at some point I realized that they marked me.I stopped and did not resist arrest. Only about 4 hours later they bothered to tell me that I was accused of violating the military order that marks the entire area a "closed Military zone". I kept silent, refused to sign any document without consulting a lawyer. I was locked up with another two charming protesters from Bil'in and we were released later that night under the condition that we will not return to the area in the next 15 days. Assuming that the military order was not written after the fact, I allow myself to suppose These six photos that were taken before the arrest were taken before the validity of the order!
At the weekly demo against the occupation in kufr Quaddum,
the village's electricity was cut off last night. 3500 ppl live with no electricity for one day so far, and it remains unclear whether this was a mere accident or sabotage.
Hopefully the power grid will be fixed soon.
Now in the demo the army is firing tons of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets in us, over 200 unarmed protesters demonstrating in the village.

This is how it works: The Israeli authorities intend to create a new settlement in Nu'eima, north of Jericho, for Bedouins expelled from the E1 Area (between Jerusalem and Ma'ale Adumim settlement). In the meantime Bedouin dwellings are being demolished before alternative ones are even being prepared. On Thursday, August 28, 2014, Israeli soldiers came to the Bedouin neighborhood next to Palestinian village A-Zayyim east of Jerusalem, and demolished five dwellings and three sheep-pens. 38 persons remained homeless. This is the third demolition the army has carried out at the site in the past two years.
Don't Say We Didn’t Know 420
In a press news item, the Israel Land Authority reported having demolished seven Bedouin dwellings in the Negev. Another 18 homes were demolished by their own inhabitants. The locations of the demolitions were not specified. ILA inspectors habitually threaten Bedouins that if they do not demolish their own homes, the "job" will be done by the ILA and inhabitants will be charged with the cost of the demolition and debris removal. Some fear this and do their own demolition.
