"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 640, May 17, 2013: Punishment of Stone-Throwing Palestinian Children
UNICEF has published a report with respect to Israel’s treatment of Palestinian children which confirms a previous one by the United Nations Children Fund Some 7,000 Palestinian children were arrested in the past decade, an average of 700 per year. The report described the process by which this generally occurs: A large military force invades a home in the dead of night and rudely wakes up its occupants.
Sooner or later everyone possessing a humane conscience, to say nothing of a functioning honest nose, will refuse to have anything to do with this "apartheid-like" state. Back on March 6, 2013 the Middle East Monitor reported that Israeli forces had sprayed Palestinian homes in the village of Nabi Saleh with Skunk as punishment for organizing weekly protests against the Apartheid Wall built on occupied land.

Skunk is a fluid so offensive smelling that people automatically retreat from anywhere or anyone doused with it.

What should the Israeli army do to them?

My life is meaningless away from Jerusalem. No land on earth will be able to embrace me other than Jerusalem.’
"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 636, April 19, 2013: Archaeology As Cultural Survival: The Future Of The Palestinian Past
Having long been overlooked in archaeological research, the number of excavations in the Gaza Strip has multiplied since the establishment in 1995 of the Department of Antiquities in Gaza, a branch of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of the Palestinian National Authority.
Plans to build a national archaeological museum also promise to highlight the rich history of Gaza city, which has been described as, "one of the world's oldest living cities."
