    Thank you Hamde for your photos, and your excellent steadfast coverage of this important weekly event. After reading about this for months on Mondoweiss, I finally got there for my first time today with the internationals, and saw a German activist get arrested and later released. Seeing what really transpires (IDF with plexiglass shields pre-deployed on the road on the PALESTINIAN side of the fence, launching dozens of tear gas rounds all around, early on, just to prevent the main body of peaceful activists from getting down the PALESTINIAN road, versus a few impatient Palestinian teens throwing stones in frustration and anger at the end) makes clear that the IDF justification for the arrest of Abdullah Abu Rahmeh is totally cynical and false. I am so glad at least some European leaders have the courage to stand up for him.
