Settler children in Tel Rumeida

This is what Palestinians have to put up with in their own country while under the occupation of a foreign power. This is racism and intimidation.

Settler children in Tel Rumeida, located in the Israeli-controlled area of Hebron, West Bank.

Source... THE TEL RUMEIDA PROJECT THESE VIDEOS ARE THE COMBINED EFFORT OF THE TEL RUMEIDA PROJECT AND INTERNATIONAL SOLDARITY MOVEMENT (VIDEOS IN RED ARE LARGER AND WILL TAKE LONGER TO DOWNLOAD. PLEASE DISTRIBUTE ALL MATERIAL FREELY.) On June 14, 2006, settler children from Beit Hadassah attacked Palestinian workers who were building safety additions to the stairs and path of Qurtaba school, located directly across from Beit Hadassah settlement. When HRWs intervened, the settlers began attacking them brutally, throwing large rocks at close range, dousing them with water, and hitting them. The Israeli soldier stationed feet away laughed and taunted the HRWs. He refused to help at all, saying, among other things, “Go back to England!”

Source... Life in Tel Rumeida Life in Tel Rumeida By Chelli Stanley Tel Rumeida Project October 11, 2005 Though each area of Palestine can be said to be unique, Tel Rumeida is truly a world unto itself. Located in the Israeli-controlled area of Hebron, Tel Rumeida is a small neighborhood living out the brutal extravagance of direct Israeli occupation. If Tel Rumeida is viewed as a microcosm of the Israeli plan for Palestine, the sometimes subtle realities of Palestinian life under occupation and the type of Palestinian state Israel desires can be more easily comprehended. Nearly every tactic used by Israel to create its merciless occupation is employed in Tel Rumeida: displacement, imprisonment, economic strangulation, extreme militarization, arbitrary detention, land confiscation, disruption of normal Palestinian life, settler violence, soldier brutality, government complicity with illegal settler acts, and daily humiliation. The Palestinian residents of Tel Rumeida never experience the living of a normal day. The nearly three years of curfew they endured during this intifada permanently scar the lives of every resident and the community itself. The five soldier stations and recently modernized electronic checkpoint currently located on three streets make it nearly impossible for residents to walk anywhere unhindered. The two settlements, Beit Haddasseh and the Tel Rumeida settlement, housing some of the West Bank’s most extreme settlers (including members of Kach, designated by Israel as a terrorist organization,) and located at the top and bottom of the Tel Rumeida neighborhood, ensure that Palestinians living here will, at the very least, have a daily reminder that they are no longer welcome in their own neighborhood. The endless abandoned homes and forcibly-closed stores, many of them sprayed with violently racist settler graffiti, do their own part in contributing to the solemnly eerie atmosphere of the neighborhood.
