The election which was a response to rebellion in the elite - threatening to restrict his daily newspaper - resulted in a partial defeat. He is dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he is trying desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threatens to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague Court. The French initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the West Bank is an effort to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non-armed struggle the struggle continues. The very optimistic activists already feel the approaching victory. [Italiano]


Friday 8-5-15 Just another 25 minutes of the usual short demos in Friday Bil'in.
11 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall joined with about dozen internationals the Bil'iners hard core activists in the weekly demo.
When we approached "to near" to the Israeli soldiers they started to shower us with tear gas. When we "regrouped" to the north the armed forces advanced to an un easy short distance and we "regrouped towards the outskirts of the village.
The soldiers were not satisfied with our position so a large unit approached us and flooded us in a last barrage and soon went away.
Few of the comrades took an after demo tour of the freed areas behind the route of the old dismantled separation fence including the vicinity of the new separation wall we are not allowed to reach during the "official" demo. ****
