"Thanks to the media here for telling the truth"Bring this truth to whatever country you come from. Non-violence will solve the problems here in Israel and Palestine. Often, the world sees only violence. But Palestinians are a good people, working towards non-violence. This Wall must fall! It is an insult to the human family and to the world that we are building Apartheid Walls in the 21st Century! More than forty years of Occupation and Land Appropriation."
Ma'iread didn't make it to Bil'in this year as planned due to the volcanic ash closed down Tel Aviv Airport, and instead wrote:
"Your Palestinian Popular Nonviolent Resistance movement is so important because You are asserting to the Israeli Government and the World that Palestinians, like all human beings, are entitled to dignity and freedom, freedom of Movement, Freedom of expression, and access to work, health care and education.Your Peoples' movement is touching the hearts of many people around the world, who are increasingly coming to recognize the truth, that the Palestinian people have been deprived from all of these things for decades by dispossession and Israeli military occupation.
"Increasing numbers of world citizens are beginning to support and work for your call for the immediate ending of Israeli occupation, full implementation of humanitarian and International Law, and the Right of the Palestinian People to self-determination. They are also supporting your call for the immediate removal of military check points in the West Bank, ending of settlements, house demolitions, as well as the separation wall, and for the lifting of the unacceptable and inhuman siege of the Gaza strip. Your call to support the BDS campaign to end occupation and Apartheid (as it did in South Africa) is gaining momentum with Citizens, international Bodies, and Governments and they are increasingly beginning to "break the silence' and call upon Israel to implement justice and peace for the Palestinians.
