Israeli soldiers arrest protesters at Al-Walaja

A dispatch from friend Mazin Qumsiyeh:

Dr Mazin Qumsiyeh, a Palestinian-American professor and activist, is being arrested during a spontaneous protest in Al Walaja against the use of explosives by the Israeli Occupying Forces on 13.11.2011. The soldiers violently pushed people back, used pepper spray, arrested two, and injured three persons. Photo by Anne Paq/Activestills.org.

I was finally released.  Israeli soldiers abducted me while filming an attack on villagers of Al-Walaja.  The attack started with dynamiting their village lands near their houses, a process that already shook and cracked houses and injured some residents before (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCDNg_ScDtU).  The villagers were speaking with soldiers demanding paperwork and telling them that court cases are pending and to stop blowing up their lands.  Instead the soldiers arrogantly pushed and shoved and as they tried to arrest one young man, a group of Israeli soldiers and native Palestinians fell off the side of the bulldozed area of the route of the apartheid wall.  Outside of camera views, Mustafa was beaten repeatedly in the car (I was hit twice) by a mean young Israeli soldier who said he hated Arabs.  The video we have of our abduction is at  http://youtu.be/v_GE16wmcAo and still pictures can be seen here http://www.flickr.com/photos/activestills and here http://chroniquespalestine.blogspot.com/

After the US government (under the Yolk of the Israel lobby) cut funding for UNESCO, people of the world and other governments should step up to the plate and donate to this institution. You can do so here:
