Saturday, October 29 2016 A Funny Thing Happened in the Jordan Valley Last Thursday “It was 42 degrees Celsius (107.6 Fahrenheit) in the Jordan Valley. We went for another day of work and accompaniment with the villagers who face constant harassment from Israeli authorities, and we happened to be there when the Forces of Israeli Defense came to demolish a gravel road, the only access road to Al Hadidiyye, a village which has no water supplies except for the overly priced water tanks delivered on this gravel road.” Read more of the Jordan Valley here in a post by Radical Monkey Clown.

Friday, October 21 2016 Escorting children to school It’s quite absurd that 7 Palestinian children need 2-3 leftist and a Jeep full of soldiers to accompany them on their way to school. This is because the road that leads to school passes near the violent settlement of Havat-Maon. Apparently this is easier than actually solve the problem. Early Monday morning with Ta’ayush תעאיוש تعايش. First published on Facebook by Li Lorian.

Thursday, July 7 2016 Al-Hadidiya, Jordan Valley | photograph: Guy Hircefeld | Four months away provide just enough distance to see the madness and the cruelty for what they are. Who has set up this crazy system and kept it running for half a century? Is it not mad to deliberately deprive human beings—families, children, the elderly– of water at the height of summer in a scorching desert? It was at least 37 or 38 degrees Centigrade, almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit, today in Al-Hadidiya. No running water, of course, and almost no water at all. You can’t […]

Tuesday, April 26 2016 Taayush activity, Satrday, 23.4.16 | photo: Amir Bitan | Amitai Ben Abba: During Ta’ayush work on Saturday 4/23/2016, our friend Na’el was forbidden from accessing grazing land close to the Susya settlement. Civil Administration, police, and soldiers forced him out of the area, showing an outdated and irrelevant warrant, threatening him with arrest if he stays with his sheep on that thin stretch of barley. Being intimately familiar with the brutality of the occupation, Na’el chose to herd his sheep away, although his access to this land has been legally confirmed countless times before. […]

Sunday, April 17 2016 Join Ta’ayush activity in the Jordan Valley! Following a decade of successful activity in the South Hebron Hills, Ta’ayush is expanding its model to the Jordan Valley, where the Israeli Occupation has been systematically demolishing Palestinian villages, restricting access to water supplies and grazing lands, and incessantly limiting Palestinian’s freedom of movement. Join us to accompany shepherds and farmers in the Valley! People from all over the country are invited to join, specifically from the Tel Aviv area and from the north. We expect to go to the Jordan Valley about once a week (not on Saturdays), […]

Sunday, April 10 2016 Taayush activity, Satrday, 10.4.16 | photo: Amir Bitan | Amitai Ben-Abba: Kids in Umm Al Kheir playing in the ruins of their houses, joyfully shattering pieces of styrofoam formerly used as insulation between the thin copper walls. Israeli forces demolished six homes in this small South Hebron Hills village last week. Meanwhile, new two-storied houses stand vacant in the Jewish settlement of Karmel 50 meters away, on the other side of a fence. A wave of demolitions has been washing the West Bank in 2016, hitting particularly hard in the South Hebron Hills and […]
