Rehavam Ze’evi’s reputation, on the other hand, has been quite tarnished and deservedly so, yet no one has dared lift a finger to put a stop to all the commemorations of him – bridges, highways, promenades, streets, squares, settlements and even an annual race. His name should have been blotted out long ago, but there’s no protest movement to lead this effort.

Per la prima volta, B’Tselem, la più grande organizzazione israeliana per i diritti umani, conferma ciò che studiosi palestinesi e sudafricani affermano da anni: Israele è un regime di apartheid, tanto nei Territori palestinesi occupati come all'interno di Israele. 

Hello, my name is Daniel. I'm 18 year old from Tel Aviv and I'm part of a new group of teens, school seniors and youth refusers that. We're called the Shministim Letter - 60 teens and youth aged 16-21 signed the statement we sent to Israeli Prime Minister, calling for refusal to enlist to the Israeli military. 'Shministim’, literally meaning 12th graders, is a movement of high school seniors who publicly refuse to serve in the Israeli military as a conscientious objection to the occupation and oppression of Palestinians. Over the last year, we’ve gotten together to learn about injustices and abuse that are an inherent part of the military regime. Together, we decided that right now, as Israel enters another election and Biden enters the white house, is the time to act. We demand justice, and justice demands solidarity and joint struggle.

On 30 May 2020, Israeli Border Police officers fatally shot 31-year-old Iyad al-Halaq, a Palestinian from Wadi al-Joz in East Jerusalem. The young man, who was on the autistic spectrum, was on his way to the Elwyn Al Quds Center for individuals with disabilities, which he frequented daily. Al-Halaq fled from the officers and entered a garbage room on the street. There, lying on the ground, he was shot to death. Warda Abu Hadid, his caregiver at Elwyn, screamed again and again at the officers, “He’s disabled! He’s disabled!” – trying to explain that Iyad didn't understand the situation and wasn't carrying a weapon, pleading with them not to shoot him.

Two month ago, I visited the community of Khirbet Humsah in the Jordan Valley after Israel demolished it. The place looked like a tsunami had hit it. The remains of tin shacks, livestock pens, clothes, bedding, outhouses and kitchen utensils lay scattered. Exhausted, desperate, angry people were trying to salvage bits of tin and fabric to improvise shelters for their young children in the cold.
