Saturday, November 16 2013 Umm el ‘Amad, Umm al-Ara’is and Susya by David Shulman By a miracle of sorts, we had a mostly peaceful day in South Hebron today; such an event is so rare that I thought it might be worth mentioning to you. In lieu of a more substantial report, let me just say that Abu Sharif and Fadil plowed three fields, with an iron plow and a donkey, on one end of the wadi at Umm al-‘Amad, just under the settlement of Otniel– lands they were denied access to for some 15 years– and there was a slightly higher-tech plowing, with […]

Wednesday, May 19 2010 Two-for-one in the South Hebron Hills – Agricultural Accompaniment and solidarity with Ezra Nawi Every Saturday we go to the South Hebron Hills to accompany Palestinian shepherds and farmers, in solidarity with their struggle against the harassment of the army and the settlers in the area. But this time our aim is double: as many of you know, human rights activist Ezra Nawi’s appeal was rejected by the District Court and he was “convicted” with helping Palestinians in Umm-al-Kheer, in the South Hebron Hills. Ezra stood in the way of a bulldozer enroute to destroy the tin shacks most residents of the village call […]

The whole scene was captured on video. The police officers claimed […]
Tuesday, October 20 2009 Israeli human rights activist Ezra Nawi will most likely be sent to jail Naomi Klein, Neve Gordon, Noam Chomsky and over twenty thousan others people asked Israel not to jail Ezra Nawi, one of Israel’s most courageous human rights activists. His crime? He tried to stop a military bulldozer from destroying the homes of Palestinian Bedouins in the South Hebron region. Nawi, a Jewish Israeli of Iraqi descent, is a threat to the settlers and the Israeli government because he has brought international attention to efforts to illegally remove Palestinians from the Hebron region.
Tuesday, September 1 2009 Support Neve Gordon! On August 20 2009, Neve Gordon, the chair of the Department of Politics and Government at Ben-Gurion University (BGU) and a long-time Ta’ayush activist, published an op-ed piece in the LA Times. In his piece, Gordon has called Israel an Apartheid state and voiced his support for the BDS campaign as the only means of saving Israel from itself. The response was a firestorm. BGU’s president, Prof. Rivka Carmi, personally led the attack against Neve: she threatened to fire him, said he is “welcome to consider another professional and personal […]
