CO Ajuad Zidan, 18, from the town of Beit Jann, a Palestinian member of the Druze religious community, was sentenced to 20 days of imprisonment on 14 Dec for his refusal to enlist in the Israeli military. This is his second term in prison (he was earlier sentenced to 10 days in prison on 30 Nov., although he was released a few days early following the evacuation of Military Prison no. 6 during the fire on Mt. Carmel earlier this month). He is currently held in Military Prison no. 4.

Breaking the Silence book

All 432 pages of Breaking the Silence's new landmark book of IDF soldier testimonies 2000-2010 now browseable, downloadable and embeddable in English here.

Before diving into the testimonies, make sure you read the first 2 pages of the introduction for a simple and honest analysis of how the IDF degenerated into a tool of dispossession:

The testimonies leave no room for doubt: while it is true that the Israeli security apparatus has had to deal with concrete threats in the past decade, including terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens, Israeli operations are not solely defensive. Rather, they systematically lead to the de facto annexation of large sections of the West Bank to Israel through the dispossession of Palestinian residents. The widespread notion in Israeli society that the control of the Territories is intended exclusively to protect the security of Israeli citizens is incompatible with the information conveyed by hundreds of IDF soldiers.

No army, no prison, no wall will stop usA year ago, Abdullah Abu Rahmah, of Bil'in's Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements was arrested by Israeli soldiers who raided his home in the middle of the night. A year later he is still in prison. From there he sends the following message.

* Meanwhile, protests continue in Bil'in, the past one in honor of International Human Rights Day and Abu Rahmah. Watch a video of the protest by David Reeb and check out a new comic about Abu Rahmah's story "No Army, No Prison, No Wall Can Stop Us" by Ethan Heitner.

** Plus a huge bit of good news for Bil'in, Adeeb Abu Rahma, another local activist was released last weekend, after a year and a half in prison.
