I WAS RELEASED 14Nov11 November 14, 2011

I was finally released.Â Israeli soldiers abducted me while filming an attack on villagers of Al-Walaja.Â The attack started with dynamiting their village lands near their houses, a process that already shook and cracked houses and injured some residents before, see.Â The villagers were speaking with soldiers demanding paperwork and telling them that court cases are pending and to stop blowing up their lands.Â Instead the soldiers arrogantly pushed and shoved and as they tried to arrest one young man, a group of Israeli soldiers and native Palestinians fell off the side of the bulldozed area of the route of the apartheid wall.Â Outside of camera views, Mustafa was beaten repeatedly in the car (I was hit twice) by a mean young Israeli soldiers who said he hated Arabs.Â The video we have of our abduction is HERE and still pictures can be seen here and here.
