PEOPLE ARE DESPARATELY IN NEED HERE. WE CAN DO SO MUCH.
Well my dear friend Khalid phoned me to invite me to a wedding in Hebron. I had to refuse because I have so many things to do here.
I promised I will visit them on Friday.
I am going to visit one of your students later today, a film maker and journalist from Balata. I cannot wait to see him again.
On my way through Hawarra checkpoint,a soldier pulled me aside and asked why I was going to Nablus. I told him I had friends there,he offered me his gun and said I would need it from the terrorists who lived there. RUBBISH I SCREAMED AT HIM. I asked him who the terrorist really was. All I saw was Palestinians in a holding pen where they are made to sit for hours on end in the blistering sun until the soldiers get fed up with them and let them go.
When I looked at him I saw a real terrorist with a gun, a uniform and operating one of the most disgusting sites I have ever seen. The Checkpoint.
I visited earlier today friends of mine who put Internationals up who worked with ISM. They are some of the bravest Palestinians I know and think the world off them. I love just meeting with the ordinary Palestinians and you do not get more ordinary than what we do here.
A famous person from Nablus is coming out of Jail today and there are many celebrations. I am just going to one of them now.
I am sure everyone now has heard of the demonstrations against the wall in Billin. Well I have been told Nillin is now having demonstrations 3 or 4 times a week.
I have been asked to go onTuesday. I am slightly apprehensive because I have been told that Billin is just a warm up compared to Nillin.
So not looking too forward to that.
