Audiences were so impressed by our young friends from Lajee Cultural Centre in Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem that they are back again this year. Your solidarity is especially needed now: Israeli occupation forces have been killing children and also arrested 53 people in recent days including two of the Lajee youth dancers. Defence of Children International reported: "Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured two Palestinian teenagers at the entrance to Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem late February during separate clashes with demonstrators over the death of a Palestinian in Israeli custody."

Dancing in Aida Camp under the illegal apartheid WallIsraeli soldiers have used, as they routinely use, live ammunition against unarmed demonstrators. In Aida camp they use illegal dum-dum bullets. Saleh Amareen, aged 15, was shot dead outside the Lajee cultural Centre and another remains in critical condition.

Mohammed Al-Azza needed emergency surgery after he was shot in the face with a steel ball thinly-coated with rubber while taking photographs from the second floor of the Lajee Cultural Centre. Yesterday more homes in Aida Refugee Camp were trashed by Israeli soldiers.

Israel and Settler Society by Lorenzo Veracini

The struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not unique -- whatever the news media may suggest. Lorenzo Veracini argues that the conflict is best understood in terms of colonialism. Like many other societies, Israel is a settler society. Looking in detail at the evolution of other colonial regimes -- apartheid South Africa, French Algeria and Australia -- Veracini presents a thoughtful interpretation of the dynamics of colonialism, offering a clear framework within which to understand the middle east crisis.
