Israeli Settlers try to re-occupy land in Beit Sahour


Israeli Settlers try to re-occupy land in Beit Sahour.

I have just got news from a friend that the place I last visited on an Tour in 2005 is being occupied by a lot of settlers and IDF just look on. The site Ush Ghrab was occupied by the Israeli army in 1967 and was used as a military base. In 2006 the army abandoned the site and the city council in Beit Sahour rehabiliatated the site and turned part of it into a public park, and had a plan to build a hospital on the rest of it, in addition to some other facilities that would server the local community in Bethlehem. See the following links:

Mr. George N. Rishmawi has been assigned Executive Director for PCR on August 1, 2005 to succeed Mr. Ghassan Andoni, who co-founded the center and lead it for 17 years. Andoni is now the new director for the Public Relation Office in Birzeit University. We wish both George and Ghassan the best in serving their country and the organizations they work for.

I have met Ghassan Andoni who is an excellent speaker and I see he is now at Birzeit University, while George S Rishmawi, continues promoting visits to Palestine.

  1. I have pleasure in meeting both of these very active people of Palestine. Success to both in their new posts. Sorry I read this news only today while Gaza is still under blockade with truce coming to no solution till today when the most recent Assault, rather massacre of civilians in Gaza began on 8th July 2014 during the month of Ramadan. Israel is pariah entity armed to its teeth by USA as its first ally, UK the second pumping its arms to Israel to clear the land of Gaza to enhance their long dreamt of ‘Jewish State’ this will be crushed to the ground as Israel is hated globally by all who have some sense.
