The Occupation officer is there, for the third time at least, to order the family out of their home in yet another attempt to expel the family from their lands. Threatening that they are going to put barbed wires all around the house, the Occupation Forces would leave the family with only a narrow passage, which will also be surrounded by barbed wire.

Construction of the Apartheid Wall is advancing in areas throughout East Jerusalem including Abu Dis, Eizarya, Sheikh Sa’ad, Sawahre and Jabel Mukaber. While the Israeli Occupation has already confiscated massive amounts of land to build settlements in East Jerusalem, where some 250,000 settlers live and occupy land, the Wall now threatens to finalize the annexation of this and even more land to bring the Zionist vision of "Greater Jerusalem" to fruition. These photos, taken in and around Sawahre on January 2 expose the atrocity being imposed on Palestinian communities.




These photos, taken in the Abu Dis area in Jerusalem on January 2, 2004, clearly show the devastating way the Apartheid Wall is winding through Palestinian communities. Cutting incredibly close to people's homes, the Wall completely divides communities, isolating people from essential lands, commerce, family and friends. The Wall is serving to annex the most fertile land that will be used for settlement expansion, while forcing expulsion among Palestinian communities by making living conditions near impossible.

***image2***Today, for the third consecutive day, hundreds of Palestinians demonstrated in Budrus, west of Ramallah to resist the construction of the Apartheid Wall. The demonstration started at 10:30 a.m. when demonstrators from Budrus, as well as the nearby villages of Qibya, Ni’lin, and Midya, headed towards their lands where occupation bulldozers have already begun uprooting trees and clearing land to make way for the Wall. The protestors sat in the land until 11:00 a.m.

Ibrahim Atmawi, 65 years old, from Azzun Atma, 12 km south of Qalqiliya, lives with his 13 person family in a small house no bigger than 200 square meters. In September of last year, the people of the village learned of the Occupation intention to build the Wall. Attached to the confiscation orders that were given to the villages south of Qalqiliya, a map showed the section of the Wall to be constructed in that area. According to the map, the Wall would isolate a cypress grove which is on 30 dunums of land, in addition to 100 dunums of olive trees, all of which belong to Ibrahim.

The Occupation Military started to clear and destroy the lands in Budrus, West Ramallah this morning, chopping and uprooting tens of olive trees to make way for the Apartheid Wall. While the Occupation Military had tried to destroy the land yesterday, the people in the village stood in front of the bulldozers, resisting the destruction and stopping them from clearing the land. However, the Occupation Military’s response was to threaten that they would impose a curfew on the entire village of 1200 people until the building of the Wall in the village was completed.




Construction of the Apartheid Wall in Abu Dis, located in the Jerusalem District, leaves the residents of these communities, as with so many others, very little to hope for in the coming year. While the Wall is not entirely "new" to the residents of Abu Dis, who have been living with it in another form for several months, towering slabs of concrete are now being erected to further ghettoize the community and strangle freedom of movement.

Over 1,000 residents of encaged Qalqiliya City demonstrated on Saturday, December 27, against the Apartheid Wall which has encircled the city for over one year. The demonstrators met in Martyr Abu Ali Eyad Square in the city center and marched towards the southern entrance of the city which is closed off by the 8-meter high concrete Wall which towers over the area and surrounds the entire city.
