ISM ALERT: Right now soliders are in Bil’in rounding up activists

It’s 9 p.m. west coast U.S. time, later obviously back east. Here in Palestine it’s 7:05 a.m. and the Israeli military has launched an invasion of the West Bank village of Bil’in that you’ve been reading about so much as of late. The goal is to round up all our international and Israeli activists before there’s any media attention at all.

Right now the home that has the ISM apartment is surrounded by Israeli soliders and border police. People are trapped on the roof and soldiers are getting ready to ram through the front door and haul the lot of them off.
