Security cabinet – just smash the protest

Three comments on the violence outside Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount. A despairing Chemi Shalev says ‘You know the tragedy can be avoided, but no one seems to care’; Al Jazeera – of course the security clamp-down is increasing resistance; Hamas leader Haniyeh calls on “all Palestinians, all Muslims and Arabs to assemble for Al-Aqsa and mass demonstrations following tomorrow’s [Friday] prayers.”

‘Day of rage’ at plan for Bedouin across Palestine, Israel and Europe

If the Israeli government thought they could just dispose of the Bedouin as they wished they had their heads up their bottoms. On the designated day of rage, November 30, there were public manifestations of opposition to the Prawer plan (no-one believes the Israeli government’s claim this plan has been introduced in the best interest of the Bedouin) throughout Palestine and in several European cities including London, with JfJfP.

Protests from Beirut to Brazil against Prawer plan

Israel’s Arab citizens led the protests against Bedouin displacement by the Prawer-Begin plan on the Day of Rage, August 1. Thousands from north and south Israel joined, as did large crowds in the West Bank who added their protest against displacement from the Hebron area. Protests also took took place in Brazil, Beirut, Amman, London, Morocco, Mauritania, Amsterdam, Dublin and Washington. Activists say the protests will continue into a second day.

Monday July 15th was a ‘Day of Rage or ‘Anger Strike’ in Israel-Palestine. For the first time, Palestinians from many different places and occupations joined to protest the Prawer plan. This dictates that in the name of modernisation around 40,000 Bedouin will be forcibly moved to state-allocated towns, leaving the Negev free for Jewish settlements. Unlike the usual victims of ethnic cleansing, the Bedouin are Israeli citizens – but not equal ones.
