Today as Barack Obama arrived at Ben Gurion Airport, hundreds of Palestinians erected a new neighborhood of the Bab al Shams protest village. An organizer of the action says, “An administration that used the veto 43 times out of 79 (between 1979 to 2011) in support of Israel and against Palestinian rights, an administration that grants military aid to Israel of over three billion dollars annually, can’t have any positive contribution to achieve justice and rights of the Palestinian people.”

Today, about 50 Palestinians joined by number of international activists blocked Road 443 (known as Modi’in, which passes on West Bank lands, connecting Tel Aviv to Jerusalem). The road was blocked for about 30 minutes to Israeli and settler traffic.

Bassem Tamimi was arrested in March of 2011, indicted on protest-organizing charges, and has spent 13 months in jail before he was granted bail last month. His trial has shed light on systematic violations of Palestinian minors’ right during police interrogations, and the use of their coerced confession to persecute political leadership.
Yesterday, protesters blocked the entrance to the Ma’ale Adumim settlement in support of the Palestinian prisoner hunger strike. The road that was blocked leads to the “Judea and Samaria Central Unit’s interrogation center”, one of the largest in the West Bank.
