I am running a regular feature “The Resistance Builds to Sharon’s Treachery’ and I will publish the heading with an orange background, the chosen colour of the Resistance to the Bush/Blair/Sharon betrayal of Jews.
I stand completely behind the young and not so young people in Gaza and Northern Shamron who are defying Sharon. It is an almost incredible situation that Jew should be doing this to Jew in 2005. But it is not completely incomprehensible to me either. In preparation for launching www.IrelandSupportsIsrael.com I studied the early stages of the Israeli state and I saw the horrible hatred which the Left (really stalinist left) Founders of Israel had for anybody of an orthodox Judaic predisposition. Those socialist/stalinists really did hate Vladimir Jabonitsky, Abraham Stern and Menachim Begin and used incredible treachery to put them down. In many ways this is being replayed in the present.
These are some of the events connected with the Resistance to Sharon that have happened recently:
1. Today's exploits by the white/blue Stasi
Protester: cops broke my hand
16-year-old activist arrested for blocking traffic, says she was beaten by police, prevented from seeing doctor
She says that after she was arrested and detained for questioning, the officers started to beat her, and one twisted her left arm behind her back, breaking it.
"I will be pressing civil charges against the police in the coming days," she says.
'You are not human beings' The incident stemmed from a right-wing protest in late May in which several teenagers were arrested The girl, who will remain anonymous, was arrested near the Ranana junction and taken to the police station in nearby Kfar Saba. "They put about 30 of us in one room, guys and girls together. There was no air to breath. We asked to open a window or door, but they yelled at us, saying, 'you are not human beings, you are nothing.' "We started making noise to protest, and the cops thought I was the ringleader. They took me out of the room, brought me into the hallway, and two officers started to beat me. One of them twisted my arm behind my back," she told Ynet.
No doctors in jail
The girl says her arm started to swell, and she asked to see a doctor about 11:00 PM. She was told the station had no doctor, but she would see one when she was transferred to Maasiyahu Prison the next day."In the meanwhile, my arm was in terrible pain, and swelled up even more. They wouldn't even give me ice for it, "she says.At Maasiyahu the next day, she refused to identify herself to the doctor, who in turn refused to treat her.Several days later, when the girl's remand was extended, a judge ordered the police provide medical attention even if the girl refused to cooperate.
"After three days they took an x-ray and put some sort of bandage on it," she recalls. That Thursday, after four days in detention, she was released from detention but forbidden from leaving the settlement where she lives.
"I went straight to the doctor," she says, "and he took more x-rays and told me the arm was broken."
2. If true, this is bad news
200 Nissanit families reach agreement to move
With only two months left until disengagement takes place, the government had made only three small group agreements with settlers totaling 86 families out of 1,800. It has also received 220 individual compensation claims.
On Friday legal representatives of some 200 Nissanit families and Disengagement Authority head Yonathan Bassi met with Ashkelon Mayor Roni Mehatzri over cake and soda in his office. They hammered out the details of an agreement, which would give the families half-dunam plots with a sea view similar to the village they now live in...
To make the deal, settlers gave up their request for self-governance, which had been a deal breaker for them in the past. While they will be able to build many communal institutions within Golf Village, they will remain within the Ashkelon municipality.
Settlers also agreed not to live together while they await construction of their homes. They will instead either rent apartments in the city or move to mobile homes set up elsewhere by the state.
In exchange for relenting on these two points, they will receive an area that had been slated for a vacation village with a golf course some 800 meters away from the shore. The developer went broke and gave up on the project; hence the name "Golf Village" explained a city spokeswoman.
She said the village could hold up to 400 families. Nissanit has some 300 families of which some 43 families have already been part of smaller group deals.
If this report is true, then the Resistance seems to be weakening.
3. JPost on the steadfastness of Yesha pioneers
On Thursday Ginzburg, a 60-year-old grandmother, tended the geraniums she planted at her new home in Maoz Yam, the Gush Katif compound that the community's radical leaders have dubbed "The Stalingrad of Disengagement."...
Two of Ginzburg's children, along with nine of her 19 grandchildren, are to move into the grandmother's three-room apartment next week to help with the cause.
Designated the compound's unofficial gardener, the matronly Ginzburg has coaxed her geraniums to bloom, and nursed the oleander bushes back to health. "All of this was a trash heap," she said, pointing to the entrance of Maoz Yam, which served as Gush Katif's Palm Hotel until the intifada's violence drove customers away.The IDF and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) keep close watch on Maoz Yam, the 114-room former hotel which some 30 families, including hard-core right-wing activists, have made their base of operations to stop the evacuation, or at least make the process unbearably painful.
While Ginzburg, who moved to Maoz Yam two weeks ago with her husband, is content to cram her family and belongings into a small bungalow, Adasha struggles through Nitzanim's deep sand looking miserable...
Nadia Matar, one of the Maoz Yam founders, says that over the past year she has managed to bring 150 new families to Gush Katif and refurbish 471 abandoned structures to house activists who come to thwart the evacuation. She believes tens of thousands will swarm Gush Katif on "D-Day," as she calls it...
Ginzburg's was one of the last families to leave Yamit in 1982. She and her husband moved there in 1981, "to strengthen the community," for the same reasons they moved to Gush Katif two weeks ago.But in contrast to Yamit, where the vast majority of settlers left long before IDF bulldozers rumbled to their doorsteps, the Ginzburgs are impressed by the Gush Katif residents' fortitude. Ginzburg concludes that people like Adasha constitute "the weak 2 percent of those who live here."
4. White/blue Stasi: Disengagement matters; Israeli children don't.
From Arutz 7:
School Patrol Vehicles Reassigned to Disengagement Duty
Seeking to satisfy manpower needs surrounding the Gaza/Shomron Disengagement Plan, Israel Police have transferred patrol vehicles currently assigned to school patrols to disengagement duty.
Union of Local Authorities officials accuse police of abandoning the security needs of the nation’s school children.
During recent years, about 100 patrol vehicles have been assigned to protect the nation’s schools and that number is now being drastically reduced.
Union of Local Authorities head Adi Eldar sent a letter to Public Security Minister Gideon Ezra, warning the decision to redeploy the cars to disengagement-related duties will seriously compromise security for the nation’s school children ‘
