"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 701, July 18, 2014: Israeli forces detained 740 Palestinian children during the first 2 months of 2014 and terrorize daily many more

Reprisals: Three settler youths were allegedly kidnapped Thursday June 12th while hitchhiking between Bethlehem and Hebron. Ahmed al-Lulu, 10 described the terror he felt during the bombing of Gaza "I woke up at midnight, and I couldn't go back to sleep. My father tried to calm me down, but I was too scared. My younger brothers were crying."

Gaza :The Israeli military continued to pound Gaza using Apaches and F-16 jets and insist that the move was in response to rocket attacks that happened on Saturday and not to the kidnapping. Eyewitnesses in Gaza told Middle East Eye that the Israeli aerial bombardment (18 targets) continued for the third night into Tuesday. Some of the targets included training camps for Palestinian groups and civilian properties. Most of the raids happen late at night.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 700, July 11, 2014: One Palestinian child has been killed by Israel every 3 days for the past 13 years

Official statistics from the Ministry of Information in Ramallah have revealed that 1,518 Palestinian children were killed by Israel's occupation forces from the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000 up to April 2013. That's the equivalent of one Palestinian child killed by Israel every 3 days for almost 13 years. The ministry added that the number of children injured by the Israelis since the start of the Second Intifada against Israel's occupation has now reached 6,000. "The International Day for the Protection of Children is on June 1," said a spokesman, "but Palestinian children are still subject to attacks by the Israelis and Jewish settlers on an almost daily basis."

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 699, July 4, 2014: Prisoners: Palestinian Anger Grows At the Silence of the Red Cross

There is growing anger among Palestinians in view of the silence of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) regarding Palestinians detained without charge or trial by Israel, especially those who have been on a hunger strike for almost two months and whose lives are in danger. The ICRC refuses to focus on the prisoners on hunger strike who seek the suppression of unlawful administrative detention, just as it has refused to call for the release of Palestinian children, many of them in solitary confinement and subject to other forms of torture, says Elecronic Intifada. In contrast, the ICRC called for the "immediate and unconditional release" of the three Israeli settlers who disappeared in the occupied West Bank, June 12.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 698, June 28, 2014: DePaul students vote for divestment from Israeli companies

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 697, June 20, 2014: Why are so many Israelis rushing to leave the "promised land"?

One million Israelis have left in the past 20 years. A separate survey of young people showed that around half of settler youth would prefer to live somewhere else. Israel, they believe, is not the ideal place in which to set up home. Interestingly, the overwhelming majority of Israeli emigrants head to Germany. Successive Israeli government have exploited Nazi Germany's Holocaust against the Jews of Europe to justify usurping the land of Palestine. They have also extracted billions of dollars of "reparations" from the German government. Not only have one million Israelis left in the past 20 years, but there is also a rush among those left behind to get a foreign passport.
