    Palestinians and internationals attacked during biking trip in Jordan Valley

    Palestinian and international cyclists were brutally attacked by the Israeli occupation forces on Saturday as they attempted to bike up Route 90, the main North-South highway running through the Jordan Valley. The cyclists were demonstrating against Israeli apartheid policies in the Jordan Valley, which limit Palestinian access to roadways as part of an ongoing campaign of ethnic cleansing against the indigenous Bedouin communities of the Valley.

    One Palestinian woman and two international activists from Denmark and Holland were evacuated to the hospital with injuries after being struck in the head with an M-16 rifle, and one international activist was handcuffed and detained for over an hour before being released without charges.

    Over one hundred activists from Palestine and around the world participated in the bike protest, organized by Sharek Youth Forum. Participants rode approximately 5 kilometers before being blocked by Israeli occupation soldiers and jeeps at the entrance to Route 90. Soldiers informed the bikers that they would not be allowed to continue “for their own safety.” When activists peacefully attempted to continue on their way, the local commander of the occupation forces swung his rifle at the head of multiple activists, resulting in the hospitalizations of the three activists and the detention of a man from Sweden.

    Palestinian drivers on Route 90, the Jordan Valley’s main north-south route, face regular harassment and attacks from Israeli settlers and soldiers. Palestinian drivers and cyclists are frequently pulled over and searched for no reason, and in some places Palestinians are even prevented from turning across the road at places Israelis have free access to.

    The Jordan Valley faces a concerted Israeli campaign of ethnic cleansing towards the Palestinians living there. Demolitions of homes occur with frequency, and the Israelis are currently stealing the vast majority of the valley’s land and water. The majority of the fruit and vegetables produced on this stolen land are exported to Europe and North America. The bike demonstration was part of a day of demonstrations and festivities that included visits to villages, a youth dubke performance, and speeches. The events aim to send the message to the world and the occupying forces that the people of the Jordan Valley and Palestine refuse to cede their land to the illegal occupation and will continue to resist and remain on their land.

    Joseph and Emiliano are volunteers with International Solidarity Movement (names have been changed).

    Keep these true stories coming, because our American people have absolutely no Idea that their tax dollars and Christian Fundi donations go to support and police these kind of despicable actions. Of course we're told we bring this up too much, we pound it over peoples heads. Well I say not near enough !! not even close to the amount necessarry to beat back the AIPAC and Christian Fundi' Propaganda that we Americans are faced with multiple times daily in their missinformation campaigns.

    You should see, the christian fundi religious programing here in the south (I'm in southwest Virginia) and hear the daily programing of fundi's begging for money to help the poor Israeli's living in and around Bethlesham and other settlement areas.

    But what really fries my ass is when they start talking about these needy settlers being so destitute, because the Israeli government can't afford to help them, because "they have to spend so much money defending against terrorists".

    WHAT A GOD DAMN LIE just to get US citizens to send money to them settler thieves.

    That statement they use to beg money is particularly disgusting when the fact is that the Israeli Military is USING 3+ BILLION of US GOVERNMENT FUNDING GIFTS TO PROTECT THEIR ISRAELI SETTLEMENT THEFT OF PALESTINIAN LAND.

    There should be a law against such misrepresentaion from Israeli's begging for money. Most Charities would lose their tax exempt status if they were caught using such tactics.


    But most American Christian Fundi's are clueless about the real story behind their donations.
