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.

Friday 3.10.14 in Bil'in was in eve and in the beginning of olive picking. In addition to seven Israelis and dozen international only had about a dozen and a half Bil'iners participated in the demo. Some regular participants and especially the young stone throwers Shabab were absent due to the beginning of the olive picking season. For reasons best known to them, the Israeli armed forces have initiated an unusual step. They have stood in a line of soldiers and border police at a Square just beyond route of the old (and dismantled) separation fence, forbade us to move forward towards Abu Lemon garden and the separation wall.
After a long while in which the confrontation was only verbal, Some of us started to walk toward the wall along the old route of the dismantled separation fence. In response, the armed forces called as reinforcement an armed unit in a jeep that tried in vein to locate us on the gravel roads crisscrossing the freed area and shoot in random few tear gas grenades. When the lack of an ongoing conflict start to bore us, demonstrators began to return to the village.
This Friday, a rare thing occurred. It was the firs time in long months that I had not got even a trickle of tear gas nor smelt it.
Before the demo, soldiers entered the area between the old and new wall routes, and set fire to a small building. Then they waited for the demonstrators on the village side of the new wall, and while the latter were still gathering in the Abu Lamun grove, the soldiers arrested a Palestinian demonstrator and drove the others away with gas. The demonstrators regrouped at the old wall route. The soldiers came there too, and kept chasing demonstrators away with gas, advancing as far as the built area of the village. Despite the small Shabab presence, the soldiers didn't only shoot gas, but also used live bullets to scare non violent demonstrators away. They also put a sound bomb under a disabled person's car, and it broke down due to the explosion. The demonstrator who was arrested at the beginning of the demo was released later, after being beaten to the point of bleeding from his face.
Bil'in 10:10:14, Attack of the Israeli armed forces on the Friday demo that we have not experienced for several years. Ten Israelis, and about two dozen international converged with the Bil'in activists at the Abu Lemon oak grove near the separation Wall. Before the march began, soldiers who were stationed near the oak grove arrested the Popular Committee member Mohammed Khatib and beat him to a pulp. They flooded the other demonstrators with tear gas. They also exploded a stun grenade under Rani Burnat car, before he could settle down in his wheelchair out of the car and immobilize the car which was later toed to the village. Gradually, they chased us with armored jeeps they pushed towards the village. We succeeded few time to regroup, but they pushed again and again till we entered the village. Attack like that had not happened more than two years. After over an hour and a half of pursuit the armed forces released Mohammed and left the the lands of the village not before firing live ammunition and arresting a boy who collected the used aluminum canisters.
3-10-2014 In the village of Nabi Saleh a weekly march started and confronted the occupation forces stationed at the entrance to the village, using rubber bullets and tear gas.
