‘Cycling is a form of resistance’ in the occupied West BankSohaib Samara - Middle East Monitor - Cycling Palestine resists by moving around. In a recent tour they cycled along the Separation Wall, with 70 cyclists following the 770 kilometre route for five days across the length of the West Bank.

Why Is Israel Afraid of Khalida Jarrar?Ramzy Baroud - Counter Punch - "When Israeli troops stormed the house of Palestinian parliamentarian and lawyer, Khalida Jarrar, on April 2, 2015, she was engrossed in her research. For months, Jarrar had been leading a Palestinian effort to take Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
