(en) Palestine-Israel, Bil'in, Media: activists rebuild the center for joint struggle for peace outpost in occupied lands

intensify towards the highest court decision at 1st February
> Palestinian residents of the West Bank town of Bil'in along with
left-wing activists have rebuilt an "outpost" Sunday two days after
the Israel Defense Forces removed the container from the identical
spot west of the route of the separation fence near the settlement of Upper Modi'in.

Last week, the Palestinians erected the outpost as part of their plan
to establish a "center for the joint struggle for peace." They even
brought cement to the site, adding that they intend to build "the
western neighborhood of Bil'in."

An IDF spokesperson that the army evacuated the container because
it was placed in a closed military zone and that "it is forbidden to
transport caravans" in the territories.


"Private Palestinian land is in question here, not state land. The
village council approved setting up a caravan and thus this is a legal
structure," Attorney Michael Sfard, who represents the Bil'in
residents, said last week.

"This will be blatant proof of the fact that there is selective law
enforcement if they deal with the poor caravan before the hundreds
of housing units built illegally in Upper Modi'in," he added.

Sfard submitted a letter in the name of Peace Now to the Civil
Administration demanding a halt to the construction within a week.
At the end of this time, Sfard wrote in the letter, he will turn to the
Supreme Court.

"After what happened today in Bil'in, there is no reason that the
state should defend its decision to continue the construction" in
Matitiyahu, Sfard said.

"Now the truth is out, and the truth is that Jews are allowed to break
the law and Palestinians are not.

"This," Sfard continued, "is called apartheid."
