Embodying the goal of the Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign, this impressionable painting entitled “The Flutes and the Walls of Israel” is now available for downloading. Created by the Italian artist Giuliano Giuggiolo, copies of this painting feature the Campaign name in both Arabic and English.

 

Updated from October 3rd, 2003, this map provides a comprehensive overview of the Apartheid Wall’s next phases as approved by the Israeli Cabinet and projected path according to Israeli military recommendations and demands by Israeli settler “councils” in the West Bank. Also introduced in this map are the so-called “double fence” areas which are further ghettoizing Palestinian communities as well as the coming expansion of the Israeli “Great Jerusalem”.

MOHAMMED RAFATI, 57, stands on a hilltop in the village of Rafat south of Ramallah looking out at the barbed wire of the separation barrier some 100 meters away. He points to the towering olive trees just a few meters behind the barrier. “Those trees were tended by my father and his father before him,” he says. He singles out a large tree. “See how big that is? It is over 200 years old. Now I can only look at it. My heritage.”

The October 21 passing of the United Nations General Assembly resolution calling upon Israel to “stop and reverse” the Apartheid Wall is being hailed by some as a mark of success for justice in Palestine or a noteworthy step in tearing the Wall down. But, praise and relief for the UN decision should be seen as misguided, as a reading of the text finds that the Resolution presents the issue within a framework that denies the fundamental distinction between Occupied and Occupier.

General Assembly Plenary



Tenth Emergency Special Session



22nd Meeting (Night)





For the second time in as many months, following the Security Council’s failure to act, an emergency session of the General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a measure on the situation in the Middle East -- in this instance, demanding that Israel stop and reverse construction of the wall being built in the West Bank.











Yesterday the United States vetoed a UN resolution condemning and calling for a halt to Israel’s Apartheid Wall. Today in Al Quds, Khalil Abu Arafeh depicts the meaning of this resolution.

Stop the Wall

Solidarity with the International Day Against the Wall!














Residents from villages throughout the northern West Bank, along the Apartheid Wall’s “first phase” are suffering immensely as they are unable to access their land, cut-off from their livelihoods. These photos, taken from mid September to mid October at the Wall’s south gate in Jayyus village, portray the anguish waiting to cross the gate to land and the separation of families and friends by the Apartheid Wall.

At the end of July 2003, just over a year after beginning construction, the Israeli military announced the completion of the Wall's "first phase", which runs 145 km through the northern West Bank districts of Jenin, Tulkarem, and Qalqiliya. Though "completion" has been declared, the reality is strikingly different; the destruction of land and the demolition of homes and markets continue in this area on a daily basis.

Le Mur : Confiscation de Terres et Expulsion Forcée

  • Le Mur n’est pas construit sur la Ligne Verte de 1967, ni même –dans la plupart des cas- à proximité de celle-ci. Au contraire, il pénètre profondément à l’intérieur de la Cisjordanie, permettant la confiscation de nombreuses terres palestiniennes et usurpant les ressources des habitants de la région.
  • Le Mur terminé, environ 50% de la Cisjordanie sera annexée de facto. De nombreuses communautés seront isolées dans des cantons, des enclaves et des “zones militaires”.

Il Muro: Furto di Terre ed Espulsione Forzata

  • Il Muro non viene costruito sulla Linea Verde del 1967, o per lo più vicino ad essa, ma piuttosto penetra in profondità la Cisgiordania, espandendo il furto delle terre e delle risorse dei Palestinesi perpetrato dagli Israeliani.
  • Una volta completato, il Muro annette di fatto il 50% della Cisgiordania, isolando diverse comunità in cantoni, enclavi o “zone militari”.

El Muro: Robo de Tierras y Expulsión Forzada

  • La construcción del Muro ha tenido como ruta de referencia Línea Verde, que demarca la frontera de 1967, pero la mayoría de la veces se adentra en Cisjordania aumentando el robo por parte de Israel de tierras y recursos naturales.
  • El muro anexará, de facto, el 50% de Cisjordania, aislando comunidades entre cantones, enclaves y “zonas militares”.
