Jerusalem, Israel | May 20, 2012

On May 20, 2012, Israelis participated in an annual celebration commemorating the occupation of the entirety of Jerusalem. Dubbed “Jerusalem Day,” the annual holiday marks the 1967 Israeli occupation of the East half of Jerusalem (not to mention that of the entire West Bank, Gaza Strip, Sinai Peninsula, and Golan Heights).

A march of over 35,000 Israelis processed from West Jerusalem down into and through Arab East Jerusalem, entering Damascus Gate and the old city, arriving to the Western Wall around 9 pm.

The Israel army and border police made serious efforts to quash any and all attempts by Palestinians, Israeli and international solidarity activists to stage counter protests in response to the Israeli occupation celebration. While, simultaneously, allowing young Israelis to congregate on the opposite side of the street, where they freely jeered Palestinian demonstrators, shouting slogans such as “There is no such thing as Palestine” and “Death to Arabs.”

Approximately 10-15 men, both Palestinian and Israeli, were arrested for no particular reason other than chanting pro-Palestinian songs. Israeli police utilized 10 huge Danish Horses at crowd dispersal mechanisms, running through groups on the Palestinian side of the street, trampling demonstrators, shopkeepers, and members of the press.

Israel’s occupation of Arab East Jerusalem, as well as the West Bank and Gaza Strip, has been deemed illegal under international as well as numerous United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

Jerusalem, Israel | May 20, 2012

On Sunday, 20 May 2012, Israelis participated in an annual celebration commemorating the occupation of the entirety of Jerusalem. Dubbed “Jerusalem Day,” the annual holiday marks the 1967 Israeli occupation of the East half of Jerusalem (not to mention that of the entire West Bank, Gaza Strip, Sinai Peninsula, and Golan Heights).

A march of over 35,000 Israelis processed from West Jerusalem down into and through Arab East Jerusalem, entering Damascus Gate and the old city, arriving to the Western Wall around 9 pm.

The Israel army and border police made serious efforts to quash any and all attempts by Palestinians, Israeli and international solidarity activists to stage counter protests in response to the Israeli occupation celebration. While, simultaneously, allowing young Israelis to congregate on the opposite side of the street, where they freely jeered Palestinian demonstrators, shouting slogans such as “There is no such thing as Palestine” and “Death to Arabs.”

Approximately 10-15 men, both Palestinian and Israeli, were arrested for no particular reason other than chanting pro-Palestinian songs. Israeli police utilized 10 huge Danish Horses at crowd dispersal mechanisms, running through groups on the Palestinian side of the street, trampling demonstrators, shopkeepers, and members of the press.

Israel’s occupation of Arab East Jerusalem, as well as the West Bank and Gaza Strip, has been deemed illegal under international as well as numerous United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
