It has a been a very busy time here and so we did not have a chance to send
the weekly update last week.  Israeli forces attacked Syria and the US
administration said they support this violation of International law.
 Israeli forces violently attacked Palestinian Christians near the Church
of the Holy Sepulcher on Easter (Eastern Christian Calendar) and prevented
most of us from entering Jerusalem and the US administration stayed silent.
 Israel forces attacked a number of Palestinian villages and evicted many
from their homes last week claiming their need to do “military excercizes.”
 In Nebi Saleh where I and some students stayed overnight in the home of
Bassem and Nariman Tamimi and their lovely four children including Ahed
Tamimi the girl who was given a bravery award for standing up to soldiers
who took her brother (see video below) and her brother who was shot
(another incident).  We were doing some environmental/biodiversity work but
witnessed attacks including firing incendiary tear gas canisters that set
fields on fire and broke windows of the Tamimi’s home.  Villagers are still
prevented from accessing their water spring.  All these attacks remind us
that Zionism as a colonial settler movement is incompatible with peace and
must always create conflict to keep its population together.
