TOI-Billboard, Nov. 7, 2004

This week, in America the ideology of aggression and the playing on fear have been rewarded a meagre victory, but a victory it was.

The nearing death of a humiliated president, symbol of the oppression and suffering of his people lead to a disgusting game of the Israeli paperazzi - also this week.

But nothing much changed this week on the ground.

Still military confrontations are resulting in the daily killing of Palestinians and (less) Israeli soldiers being hit.

And the olive harvest under the threat of the settlers continued also this week to depend on Israeli and international helpers, with each weekend a different group organizing busloads of harvesters, and Rabbi Arik Asherman and Yakov Manor also this week frantically getting together smaller groups during work hours.

And the wall continued to be built and grow longer on Palestinian lands just as before.

And in Budrus, villagers together with Israeli and international activists were also this week demonstrating against it, leading to arrests.

And as if we didn't know it for a long time, we saw on this week's Friday evening TV news how Palestinians are deprived of water which is lavishly allotted to the nearby settlers.

And when we saw how settlers make good money by selling the water from their tap on the black market to their thirsting Palestinian neighbors, it turned out (you may not believe it) that we are still able to feel deep shock. [Beate Zilversmidt]

() Our shadow - by Meron Benvenisti

Anyone who scorns his enemy dwarfs his own victory and empties his history of meaning. We walk, and with us walks our shadow - the Palestinian people; we beat the shadow with a big stick, but it doesn't leave us alone.
