Israeli Apartheid gift to Mandela: Martyrs and injuries

"We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom
of the Palestinians" Nelson Mandela

In this week’s compilation from occupied Palestine:  Today, a 14-year
old child shot in the back by an Israeli sniper in Jalazoun Refugee
Camp. A Bethlehem young man was shot by the Israeli apartheid soldiers
using live ammunition yesterday. Another lost his life after being in
a coma for 7 months from an Israeli bullet. The Apartheid state of
Israel exonerated itself from the murder of Mustafa Tamimi of Nebi
Saleh so today we joined with the Nebi Saleh community to protest and
also to commemorate Nelson Mandela (we carried his pictures). Our
friend Ashraf from Bili’n was Mandela. We faced a barrage of
rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas, and stun grenades.  Mustafa’s
younger brother Udai Tamimi was shot in the face and in now in a
Ramallah hospital with a broken jaw. Watch what Nelson Mandela had to
say in 1990 about the PLO, Yasser Arafat, and attack on him from Henry
Siegman (the immoral Executive director of the “American Jewish
Congress”). Christian communities throughout Palestine will hold
special services tomorrow, Sunday December 8 in honor of Mandela.
