I lived in Beit Sahour during the First Intifada. The place was shattered and depoliticized by the repression and the unfulfilled expectations of Oslo. One hopes against hope that they find the will once more to resist and — with our support — to end the occupation.

Subject: video of non-violent Palestinian protest being put down

Dear Dr. Finkelstein,

Here is a video you should see. It is a non-violent demonstration, led
by Mazim Qumsiyeh. I heard him speak yesterday. Apparently he has been
ordered to meet the with the Israeli police when he returns to Israel.
He fears arrest. The video is quite compelling.
