The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]
Friday 11.07.14 demo. Ten Israelis and dozen international activists joined two dozen Bil'iners in the weekly demo whose theme was: Bil'in stands in solidarity with Gaza. The activists wore clothes like these of the Jews inside the Nazi concentration camps to remind the Israeli soldiers about the Holocaust and to denounce the ongoing genocide in Gaza, demanding it stop now. The Israeli occupation forces were relatively "peaceful" for a long time. When they did start with the tear gas shooting it was not as abundant as usual. The wind was friendly too. Due to Ramadan we did not stay long and returned to the village.
Friday 18.07.14 - 11th day of the "Tzuk Eitan" war on Gaza, the demonstration in Bil'in against the separation wall and occupation was as usual. 10 Israelis and 15 international activists joined the Bil'iners in the march towards the gate in the separation wall. The theme of this demo was solidarity with attacked Gaza and many in the march wore white garments stained with red smears. At the gate we had angry communications with the Israeli state forces who escalated, first to tear gas grenades thrown at us and later escalated to an invasion by soldiers shooting rubber-coated bullets, with the arrest of one Israeli and one Bil'iner (released a few hours later).

About 100 extremely violent fascists led by the Israeli rapper Yoav Eliassi (aka "The Shadow") attacked demonstrators against the Gaza massacre. The police allegedly protected the demonstrators who wrongly relied on them, only to later discover they have been left to fend for themselves in the streets.

In Jaffa tonight, as rockets exploded over their heads and their chats got periodically drowned out by sirens and Ramadan calls to prayer, about 100 people came to demonstrate. They chanted "Arabs and Jews are united against Zionists". Across from us a few Israelis held flags that read "Long live Israel, support IDF".

Usually during Ramadan the Israeli government operates a ceasefire in its home demolitions’ war against Bedouins in the Negev and Palestinians in the occupied territories. El'Araqib is not included in that ceasefire.
On Wednesday, 2nd July, 2014, Israel Lands Authority representatives arrived, escorted by police, at the El'Araqib cemetery. They Plowed the area between the graves and the fence that they had demolished on 12th June, 2014. Then they heaped up earth mounds and tore down the shades under which residents and guests were living. All this had one specific aim: to push the inhabitants out of the place.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10100940165533739
