Mahmoud remains detained. No charges were filed. On the same day, 'Ein Beit-al-Ma' refugee camp residents Ramadan Mustafa Shahin and Iyad 'Issa Ma'rouf were arrested. Their homes were also ransacked and vandalized.

On August 29, Jerusalem Post writer Eyal Hareuven headlined "Susiya demolition orders not simply law enforcement issue," saying:

Israeli Civil Administration officials distributed demolition orders for 52 Susiya village structures in South Hebron Hills. Previous ones were issued from 1994 - 2001.

If new ones are implemented, most of Susiya's 400-member community will be destroyed. People will be displaced from their own land. They lost it twice before.

In 1986, Israel declared Susiya a national park site. In 2001, they were forcibly ordered removed again. At the time, Israel's High Court froze the order.

Civil Administration authorities claim residents built on their own land without permits. Getting them is virtually impossible. Susiya is one of many affected villages. At issue is displacing Palestinians for Jews only construction.

Most often, Israel's High Court goes along. Palestinian communities atrophy. Justice is systematically denied. Israeli officials claim they're enforcing the law and nothing else. In fact, Palestinians are ruthlessly targeted, cut off from essential services, dispossessed, and forced to pay costs for their own home demolitions.

On August 28, Israel denied 100 internationals entry into Occupied Palestine, They tried crossing over from Jordan. They ranged in age from 8 to 80. Israel deports foreign visitors expressing support for Palestinian rights. They oppose irresponsible Israeli policies. They're committed to do what they can to help.
