In my christmas-message to the readers I reflect on the great contradiction between the real meaning of Christmas, being the appeal to human rights and respect and the hypocrisy, used by the ''christian'' polticians
Wednesday morning a group of Bil’in villagers, supported by Israeli and International activists, established an ‘outpost’ on lands recently cut off from the village by construction of ‘separation barrier’ in the West Bank. The ‘outpost’, permitted by Bil’in’s council and slated to serve as a peace center, was located only 100 meters from Matityahu East neighborhood of the illegal Israeli settlement Upper Modi’in. This evening the Israeli army dismantled the peace ‘outpost’ only 48 hours after it's establishment, contradicting it's accommodation of Israeli settlements and sparking a national discussion about apartheid. Seven activists arrested during the dismantling were later released after waiting for hours due to their refusal to sign orders preventing them from entering Bil'in for the next 15 days.
