    "Today in a show of defiance against Israel's occupation and announced settlement expansion in the E1 area between East Jerusalem and the West Bank, 250 Palestinians erected tents near the village of Za'I'm and announced the establishment of a new Palestinian village named Bab al-Shams (Gate of the Sun).

    "Because this is our land and it is our right to inhabit it,' said a statement by the Popular Struggle Coordinating Committee (PSCC) who spearheaded the action, 'we will not remain silent as settlement expansion and confiscation of our land continues.'"

    Palestinians establish new village-- Bab al-Shams, Gate of the Sun-- in Occupied Area E1

    How long before the heroic Jews react in their traditional manner?
    Depends on how you interpret the State of Palestine.

    I hope Uncle George realizes the people were evicted from that tent village. The court is allowing the tents to remain for 6 days until a final decision is made. George must get his information and updates from Western Union.

    Thanks, T...How will you respond if Israel results to non-peaceful methods for dealing with these Palestinians?

    "We have set up 20 tents, and have enough equipment to stay here for a long time,' said PSCC spokesperson Abir Kopty (a frequent contributor to this site) to the Agence France-Presse.

    "Following the construction, the Israeli military promptly ordered the villagers to evacuate the camp and delivered an eviction notice.

    "The Israeli military then returned several hours later to issue a second set of eviction documents, according to Tweets from activists present on the groud. However, Israel's High Court has already decided that the village cannot be evicted for the next six days, according to Bab al-Shams villagers."

    Got any links, Hossie?

    What do you call "NON-PEACEFUL" ?? -----buildings are regularly "condemned"
    in my city ----and destroyed ----peacefully. As to "DEMONSTRATIONS"
    very frequenly large gatherings of people are dispersed by cops----for the sake
    of all kinds of reasons----like "blocking traffic" ---or simply suspicion of illegal
    activity ---like "drug dealing"------peacefully In some cases they become
    NON PEACEFUL ----when the people asked to disperse do not------at that point
    peace is aborted and sometimes people are arrested

    "MORE CAMPS PLANNED

    "Palestinian activists criticized the raid and promised more protest camps in areas designated by Israel for settlements.

    "'The eviction and the exercise of force is another indication that Israel is defying the international consensus on the need to vacate occupied Palestinian land,' Palestinian government spokesman Nour Odeh said.'"

    "Jew worried, Hossie?

    Not to be worried, Angus. Once the SC decides and removes the tents, any additional tents will be Caterpillarized post haste. Sorry 'bout that.
