Palestinians in Bi’ilin march in support of

 a Jewish

Ezra Nawi at Susiya village which the army intended to demolish

It comes to something
when Palestinians take to the streets to demonstrate in favour of an Israeli Jew,
but that is what has happened in the West Bank village of Bi’ilin.  But it demolishes the Zionist lie that Palestinian
opposition to Israel is motivated by anti-Semitism rather than the conditions
they live in.  Of course we and the less
stupid Zionists know that already but it’s good to see such a convincing
demonstration of this obvious truth.

Ezra Nawi outside court before being gaoled for resisting the demolition of a Palestinian village
Ezra Nawi who has
already been gaoled on a trumped up charge of assaulting the Israeli military,
has now been secretly arrested.  Israeli newspapers
aren’t allowed under a ‘gag order’ (another nice democratic touch in the only
democracy in the Middle East) to even mention his name.  He has been refused access to a lawyer which
means that he is being subject to the tortures that Israel usually reserves for
Palestinians.  It is claimed that he gave
the names of Palestinians who secretly sold land to settlers to the Palestinian
Preventive Security Police.  Even were
this true then the answer is so what?  It
is a crime to sell land to Israeli settlers. 
It enables the settlement and dispossession of more Palestinians.  It was similar behaviour that allowed the Zionist
colonisatory process to take root.
