Israeli Occupation Soldiers beating unarmed Palestinian demonstrators. The demonstrators are residents of the occupied West Bank village of Beit Sira, and they are protesting because Israel has decided to permanently incarcerate the villagers - all of them, simply on the basis of their race and in the name of a supposed "security" for Jews - inside a series of walls and fences.
Today, in Israel, Ehud Olmert called for an "iron fist" policy to be implemented against Palestinians who resist Israeli occupation and ethnic cleansing. Olmert is currently assuming the duties of Israel's undead Prime Minister Sharon.
Today, in Israel, a Jewish man, accompanied by his wife and daughter and disguised as Christian worshippers, snuck into the historic Christian Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, and threw incendiary bombs into the crowd of Palestinian worshippers. The Jews, a man and two women, had brought gas canisters and detonators into the church in a baby carriage. More on that HERE.
Meanwhile, last night in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a sniper from an Israeli death squad which was doing house to house searches in Nablus, shot and killed a 15 year old boy who was standing outside his front door. He was shot in the neck. His name was Amer Bassyouni.
