The shooting to hit with live ammunition on Israeli demonstration in Mas'ha
against the wall is still in the news. The clear lies of the Israeli
authorities is exposed again and again. The video documentary is shown
again and again - including the detailed statement of the reporter of
the main Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot.
Yesterday late evening, a special investigation reportage in which both
the soldiers lying and the evident that exposed it were screened in details.
In a nutshell, it exposed also the army policy of shooting with live ammunition
on non armed demonstrators called "regulation of detaining suspects" (which
is really not in order to detain but to deter) applied in the past only
to Palestinian Israeli citizens in few occasions and regularly applied to
palestinians - including children.

It seems, the naZionist left and liberals that were not so active in criticizing
the shooting policy when applied to Palestinians in the occupied territories
reached a qualitative turning point.

The fact that fluent and intelligent good looking Israeli anarchists are good
interview subjects contribute too. The various media channels - printed, audio
and visual, keeping bringing them again and again.

Yesterday and today the media is bringing in addition the young refusnics
who were sentenced yesterday for a one year in jail. This was the peek of
a three years initiative started by high school anarchists to whom joined
others with less crystallized political consciousness.

The initiative started with a petition of about hundred signatures. At first,
the local commander of the army sentenced those whose conscription date arrived
but refused joining the army to few weeks in jail for two to four repetitions
and then released them as "unfit to service". Later, the army escalated and
stopped releasing the refusnics of regular conscription after few terms.

As result, the refusnics refused to be judged by the local commander who could
continue to put them back again and again and took the alternative court martial.

After about a year of hearings, the verdict was given and they got one year
in prison.

The struggle is not at end yet as they will appeal it to the military appeal
court and probably later to the Israeli supreme court.
