Influential blogger shot at W Bank demo

on 9 Comments

Didi Remez, a blogger who has been an invaluable news source for those tracking the Israeli media, was shot in the leg with a plastic bullet at the same Friday demo in Nabi Saleh at which Emily Stark of ISM was shot, and at which Huwaida Arraf was arrested. I love the photo above [Remez is in the black jacket, photo by Haidi Totol]– because it offers a glimpse, as so many action shots from West Bank demos do, of Jews and Palestinians struggling together. Change my world, people. Remez:

Until you experience it, you can never understand it: standing 30 meters from a soldier with my hands in the air, he puts a plastic bullet in my leg and continues firing after I drop and at the guys trying to drag me to cover. Ruined my only pair of jeans :-)
