Settlements Generate Virtually No Economic Activity
"A recent Israeli government report estimated there are…$250 million in annual exports — [only] 0.55 percent of the national total — from the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, territories the international community generally considers illegally occupied."
Jodi Rodoren cited by Richard Silverstein, 22 Jan 2014

Daily acts of violence committed by Jewish Israeli citizens against West Bank Palestinians
"These incidents — now particularly heightened during the olive harvest season — are not the aberration from the norm, but a regular feature of life in the occupied West Bank. In 2012, over 7,500 Palestinian olive trees were destroyed. In the 5-year period between 2007 and 2011, there was a 315 percent increase in settler violence."

Runners in the first ever Bethlehem Marathon were forced to run two laps of the same course on Sunday 21 April 2013, as Palestinians were unable to find a single stretch of free land that is 26 miles long in Area A, where the PA has both security and civil authority. See Marathon report

The Israeli army killed six unarmed Palestinians, wounded hundreds and arrested hundreds more, including political activists. All were citizens of Israel.

Ezra Nawi in gaol would appreciate letters of support

See Update from the Villages Group – Ezra Nawi in Gaol


Dear Ezra Supporters,

Last Sunday, 23 May, Ezra Nawi began serving his one-month jail sentence as a result of his protest against demolitions of Palestinian houses in the village of Um el-Hir in the West Bank. The support and solidarity that he had received in the time before his incarceration, along with the picnic organized for him in Susya, lightened him up and will definitely help him during his time in prison.

Following a harrowing week in the Russian Compound where he was held in terrible jail conditions, Ezra was transferred to Dekel Prison in Beer-Sheva, where he will spend the rest of his sentence. Ezra says that the conditions in Dekel are better.

Visits are only allowed for lawyers and family, but Ezra would appreciate receiving letters from his supporters.

Please send your support letter to:

Ezra Itzhak Nawi
Dekel Prison
P.O.B 2351
Emek Sarah, Beer-Sheva, 84123
Israel

Sincerely,
The Committee Supporting Ezra Nawi
