"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 883, January 12, 2018: Why Israel Fears Ahed Tamimi!

By Marion Kawas

The narrative of Ahed Tamimi, who has recently become the face of Palestinian child prisoners, reached a new low on the first day of 2018; Israel insisted that they will be charging the teenager and given the record of “Israeli justice”, that means she will almost certainly serve jail time. Ahed’s fate is the same as that of all the young Palestinian detainees, born into occupation and tyranny, having lived through a “butchered childhood”.

The story of Ahed reminds me of the young girl, perhaps 12 or 13, who narrated a lot of the movie “Jenin, Jenin” and faces the camera at the end of the movie to tell us in the most chilling terms, that she plans to fight for her people and will never forget nor surrender. She also adds: “I saw dead bodies, I saw houses destroyed, I saw sights which cannot be described…and now, after they ruined all my dreams and hopes-I have no life left!” That sequence of the movie has stayed with me since I first saw it in 2003.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 882, January 5, 2018: Tens Of Thousands of Migrants Threatened With Expulsion From Israel

Israel announced on Wednesday the launch of a program to force nearly 40,000 irregular migrants to choose between deportation and incarceration.

Speaking at the beginning of a cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the implementation of the project "to remove migrants who have entered illegally". They have until the end of March to leave Israel, otherwise they will be imprisoned for an indefinite period.

According to figures from the Ministry of the Interior, 38,000 people are affected, the majority of whom are Eritreans and Sudanese. Migrants who agree to leave will be given a plane ticket and the equivalent of $ 4500 CAD.

UPDATE (21 December): Nariman and Nour Tamimi‘s detention was extended by an Israeli military court this morning to Monday. People around the world are organizing a global call to action to #FreeAhedTamimi, with protests on 22 December and more.
