Driving back from my in-laws, I listened to Eliza Gilkyson’s modern ballad about the life-and-death struggle for freedom our brave ancestors experienced during the Revolutionary War, and I thought about Palestine. I’m not the only one. Max Blumenthal has a post from Palestine on the way that Independence Day has resonated for this farmer, Mohammed Amireh, and others in occupied Ni’lin. Oh and check this out: Amy Teibel of AP covers a new B’Tselem report showing that Israeli settlements control 42 percent of the land in the occupied West Ban, including this farmer’s land.
