A Boricua goes to Palestine


A good friend and comrade of mine is in Palestine, and keeping a blog

Apuntes Palestine

Saludos Mi Gente, Comrades, Family, Friends, Allies, Acquaintances, & Enemies:

I will be traveling to Palestine and will be in the West Bank as of next week.

The situation on the ground in the Occupied Palestinian Territories is critical
with the Israeli Occupation Forces having killed over 20 people in the past
month and Palestinian militant's patience waning; Palestinian militants
have kidnapped a soldier and a settler, and there are reports that the
settler was killed. Now the Israeli Forces are imposing even harsher
martial law conditions and are engaging in collective punishment in
the Gaza Strip, destroying the only power plant effectively cutting
off people's electricity, bombing the bridge that connect north and
south Gaza, and flying low overhead creating sonic booms that
are deafening if not psychologically devastating.

In the West Bank, Israeli Occupation Forces have kidnapped over 60
Palestinians including members of cabinet and other top officials for
supposed links to terrorism.

Israel is even putting pressure on Syria for the kidnapping of a soldier
during their latest incursion into Gaza.

To keep up with the latest news, always ignore CNN and go to:

But as of next week, and perhaps sooner, check out my blog:

Apuntes Palestine

where I will be writing about what I see, hear, and feel
in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
