Budrus hero calls for Abdallah Abu Rahma`s freedomJesse Bacon - The Only Democracy - But Israel is sending a clear message even unarmed resistance by ordinary civilians demanding basic rights will be crushed.

Israel responded by firing over 1.3 million live bullets in one month into crowds of protesters. When ordinary people could no longer afford to risk protesting, small groups turned, in anger and despair, to armed resistance. 3/11/2010
