Hi, David — This is a great article, and a wonderful testimony to the courage and spirit of Nabi Saleh and its residents. I’d just like to insert a caution re your initial remarks about Bil’in, which is also a very courageous resistance village. Bil’in has been holding a protest every Friday since February 2005, over 12 years. Lots of Israelis and internationals go to that weekly protest also. At least two residents have been killed as far as I know–a young guy, a village favorite, who was hit in the chest with a teargas grenade in the spring of 2009, and his sister, who died of teargas inhalation a few months later. Many, many others have been shot and injured, some seriously, through the years. As for the Bil’in protest being “futile,” this little village did succeed in getting the Israeli Supreme Court to order the IDF to move the wall farther away, returning some of the village lands. The IDF took its own sweet time about moving the wall, but this was finally accomplished about 8-10 years ago. But Bil’in has still lost a good bit of its land. So the protests aren’t futile, and they aren’t just play-acting or kabuki theater, as the NYT once claimed. All Palestinians in all villages are suffering from the occupation and the wall and the checkpoints, etc, etc. Palestinian resistance is not a competition for who suffers more or who yells more loudly or who is more effective on a given day. You did a superb job of honoring Nabi Saleh, for which I thank you. We must honor Bil’in also, and all villages, all Palestinians. Thanks.
