Jewish Labour Bund: ‘Criminal Provocation’ at Silwan

Jewish Labour BundJUDAISM IS A CULTURAL-RELIGION – someone born Jewish could be Atheist or Agnostic yet still be grafted onto Judaism. And not being sectarian this is why anyone can convert to Judaism if this is pursued well enough and with reason. Jewish customs are customs of Human Rights and Social Justice. We do not accept a Zionist State putting limitations on us. Israel is NOT a Jewish State. We the Jewish People are a People-Nation(Am Goy)! The Jewish People are NOT a racial or ethnic category. Jewish NOT ZionistTuesday, March 27, 2018‘Criminal Provocation’ at Silwan     2018/03/20By Dr abraham Weizfeld PhD(Beginning with notes written the day of the event)         While maintaining a presence with a Palestinian friend, Myassar Atyani, on her land next to the Zionist colony of Eli, otherwise known in Arabic as the region of BirAli, we were confronted by the soldiers from COGAT, the colony security and the Israel police who came at first to observe the plowing underway.       The COGAT military claimed to be protecting Myassar from the colony fanatics who had come prepared to throw stones.           The soldiers came onto Myassar’s land surrounding us three internationals from New York, France and Canada. The latter one being me fitted with a Jewish Agency A1 visa for three years. One international from France escaped down the mountain. The soldiers first demanded that my camera be closed and then demanded its confiscation, as well as to turn over my passport. I refused to give up my passport and my camera was taken by force.I followed the soldiers up to the colony demanding the return of the video camera.At the colony road the soldiers demanded my passport again and I produced it and the passport was confiscated. I let them know that the Canada Embassy would object if it was not returned. After being photographed, my passport was returned. I still refused to leave until my camera and that of the other international from France were returned. After 2-3 hours the camera was returned with the memory wiped. A photo was taken of the ‘Tanweer’ Palestinian Cultural Enlightenment Forum vest that I wore. During the detention of ~4 hours we were variously told we were arrested for “criminal provocation” and then that we were not and then released but charged anyways.    We were shown a paper declaring the land of Myassar to be a closed military zone. I asked if this was new order and the COGAT soldiers said it was not.                                      This was a day of planting to commemorate the international martyrs of Rachel Corrie, Tom Hurdell and Vittorio Arrigoni.  [end]  The COGAT is the military administration of the West Bank under the  authority of the Zionist State of Israel. Coordination of Government Activities inthe Territories  < http://www.cogat.mod.gov.il/en  >. That is to say, the bureaucratic name for the Occupation of 1967. The 1967 Occupation of the Gaza Strip was ended previously. Myassar had a 5-day permit from COGAT to work her land but it was revoked that day on the pretext that the internationals were present, as if she could not invite such solidarity activists to help protect her from the settlers.             Rachel Corrie was crushed to death in Rafah, Gaza in 2003 during the second Intifada, Tom Hurdell was shot in the head by a Druze Arab minority soldiers in Rafah as well. Previously he worked as a volunteer with the ISM (International Solidarity Movement) in the Balata refugee camp, Nablus, West Bank with me in 2003 for two weeks. When he told me he was going to Rafah afterwards, I remarked that it was dangerous and he said, “I know”.                             During our detention the soldiers of COGAT were present in addition to the regular soldiers of the area, many of whom were also settlers, as well as the settler security and the settlers themselves.. all with M-16 automatic rifles.So at first I sought to make the best of a poor situation and spoke in Yiddish to first the settlers, and then the soldiers, none of whom could speak Yiddish. So I had to switch to English and French, since two of the soldiers were actually French citizens and immigrants. The settlers would laugh at me initially when I was speaking and then after some reflection produced some ‘kahawah’ coffee which they offered to the soldiers and one settler even gave one mini-cup to a soldier to bring to me which I refused. The two other internationals were not offered any. My gesture of refusal took them aback and so they became curious. I was really pissed off and also refused the water bottle they offered and refused to sit as well.Then the debate began; their intention was to convince us of the righteousness of their actions in defense of the poor soldiers who were being attacked. Needless to say, the attempt to point out that many more Palestinians were being killed did not make an impression. One 18-year-old soldier did not even know about General Sharon’s massacre of 3,000 in the Palestinian ref
