Follow Up on Incident at Al-WalajaMazin Qumsiyeh, PhD Salem-News.com
The struggle and resistance continue every day.
(AL-WALAJA, Occupied Palestine) - In my last email message with the video (youtube.com/watch?v=5K_-gpgTy_8) showing the assault on peaceful demonstrations in Al-Walaja, I mentioned six Palestinians abducted.
There were also Israelis arrested. In total 15 people were abducted and many charged and most had to sign a paper to promise they would not come near the wall again for 60-180 days. Here are pictures of the event Wednesday from Ann Paq flickr.com/photos/activestills/
In other news there is new hope in closing battle of the wall; check out a week in the west bank village of Al Wallaje by Yotam Wolfe and Joseph Dana: kibush.co.il/show_file.asp?num=41469.
Video of Toddler Defending Parents
The video clip below shows a four-year old Palestinian child getting a taste of the occupation. The lad is recorded trying to protect his family who are being arrested for nonviolent resistance at a Friday protest in Palestine. Being arrested for speaking out is a constant reality for Palestinians living under Israel's occupation.
Israeli apartheid soldiers arrested three 14-year olds in their own lands for being too close to the illegal wall built on their lands in Bilin. youtube.com/watch?v=SfBRfuQCpKA

Very revealing interview with Apartheid Israel's father of its nuclear bombs and other weapons of mass destruction. Here Peres admits Israel does have nuclear weapons but lies about other areas (including ethnic cleansing he himself participated in).
He also managed to insult Britain and lie about the role of the British government (which was critical to founding Israel as a racist apartheid Jewish state) tabletmag.com/news-and-politics/40409/making-history/print/
Below is a direct promotional quote from a Zionist website that brings American Jews to watch and support first-hand the colonial apartheid system in action. Imagine the reaction for a similar announcement for Nazi Germany or Apartheid South Africa.
