Solidarity for Bil'in, contempt for CRH, brutality from the IOF in the West Bank

Vilnai's Roadshow; "A bigger shoah" than Pol Pot's, perhaps?

"On an eight day intercultural, fact-finding trip to Palestine," http://www.indymedia.ie/article/86470 and participating in the weekly Bil'in protest last Friday, three IPSC activists in a group of ten Irish concerned citizens who journey up from Jerusalem witnessed the brutal dispersal of the peaceful marchers by the Israeli Occupation Forces through the indiscriminate firing of rubber bullets and physical assault which continued all around us as our group was corralled without rhyme, reason or explanation by the IOF. Even so, thanking the good lord for small mercies, it was small potatoes in comparison to the egregious violence visited on previous Bil'in protests as evidenced in the DVD documentary we saw later.

Prior to the protest, we sprayed our contempt for Cement Roadstone Holdings on the Apartheid Wall which despite the outlawing of this obscenity which is slowly strangling the West Bank continues to earn its dirty shilling through its construction.

Meanwhile, the blood continues to flow in Gaza with the body count now almost 100 and today's Observer reporting that Israel is deliberately obstructing the egress of "Palestinian patients requiring care outside Gaza ... officially, Israel permits hundreds of Palestinians through each month for medical treatment. But beneath that fact, The Observer has established, lies a secretive and increasingly harsh system of judging who is allowed to pass through the main Erez checkpoint by the security officials of Israel's Shin Bet."
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/mar/02/israelandth...ians1

And the blood will be a torrent, if there's credence to the threat of genocide by Israel's Deputy Defence Minister, Matan Vilnai, that his country was close to launching a huge military operation in Gaza and that Palestinians would bring on themselves a "bigger shoah," using the Hebrew word not normally used for anything other than the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews.

Wonder if this is guy related to the above Burnat?

Palestinian farmer critically wounded by Israeli army gunfire in Bil’in
Wednesday March 05, 2008 17:59

A Palestinian young man was wounded by Israeli army gunfire in the village of Bil’in near the northern West Bank city of Ramallah on Wednesday afternoon.

Eyewitnesses told IMEMC that Wa’am Burnat, 18 was wounded as he was working in his family’s farmland in the village. Apparently Burnat came near the wall, Israel is building on the village’s land, when the troops shot him.
