(en) Palestine-Israel, 73 years, 60 years, 40 years... and 4 years of joint actions in Bil'in, and the struggle continue

Date Sun, 08 Feb 2009 16:23:43 +0200

It is about 73 years since the first Palestinian uprising of 1936-9 against the plot to
allocate the two sides of the Jordan for the Zionist project. It is already 60 years since
75% of the Palestinian lands west of the Jordan were "allocated" to the Israeli state. It
is around 41 years after the 1967 war in which Israel conquered the remaining 25% of
Palestine... but the tide seems to change. On the end of the fourth year of the joined
struggle in Bil'in against the separation fence - which was supposed to ensure the robbery
of at least half of the 25% taken in 1967, it seems the Israelian Zionists start to accept
that they will never take all Palestine for themselves. ... And the joint struggle in
Bil'in, Ni'ilin, and Um Salmuna continue.

During the Friday demonstration the state forces remained on the other side of the route
of the separation fence... just showered us with tear gas. However, after the
demonstrators retreated to the village, military armored cars entered the outskirts of the
village in a show of force.

Excerpt of report of member of Bil'in village popular comity:

" the army fired tear gas canisters to disturb the crowd, causing dozens to suffer gas
inhalation and two were injured. The two Adib Aburahma and Abdullah Aburahma.

The Israeli army has been raiding the village at night almost on a daily basis. There
have been clashes between the army and residents of the village. Some residents have been
kidnapped. These Israeli actions are collective punishment which aims to create fear among
people and get them to stop resisting the occupation. The popular Committee against the
wall is still encouraging people to continue resisting the wall and the occupation despite
these threats.

The Friday demonstrations in Um Salmuna are relatively very quite. The participants are
few tens of activists from the village and the region, internationals, and contingent of
the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall. Usually, they march from the village till they
arrive at the entrance from the high way. There they encounter a spool of barbed wire the
Israeli state force put in advance to prevent their approach to the high way and stop.

The most belligerent action happen when children play with the barbed wire and the
soldiers shout on them to stop. A new officer arrived this Friday and anounced that as
punishment to for the touching of the barbed wire, the next week it will be posited 200
meter into the village. After that, each time the barbed wire spool will be touched, it
will be moved the next week another 200 meters towards the center of the village. A border
gendarme officer joined this and said: "I could not care less if each of you will
demonstrate at your houses."

The state forces tried but failed to detain a member of the village popular comity and a
member of the AAtW contingent, but their commander warned that in the future more serious
arrests will be carried.
