Mohammad Abu al-Hummus, a member of the Follow-Up Committee in al-‘Isawiya village, in occupied East Jerusalem, said the soldiers injured, throughout the day Monday, several Palestinian schoolchildren, in the village.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic), quoted Abu al-Hummus stating that the soldiers invaded the Schools Street, in al-‘Isawiya, and fired many gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets, wounding ten children, 9 to 16 years of age.

The wounded children were moved to several hospitals and clinics, in the town and in Jerusalem, suffering various wounds, mainly to the face, limbs and abdomen.

Abu al-Hummus added that one of the wounded children was later transferred from al-Makassed Hospital to Shaare Tzedek Medical center, due to the seriousness of his condition.

 The families in the town, including the students’ parents committee, decided to suspend classes in all schools in the town until further notice, demanding an end to Israel’s ongoing military invasions, especially since the beginning of the new school year, and the army’s provocative acts targeting the students.

Abu al-Hummus denounced the ongoing and escalating invasions, and called on the international community to intervene, especially since the soldiers constantly attack the students, and fire gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets.

The residents said that the invasions are carried out under several vague Israeli allegations, and only aim at placing further challenges and difficulties in the daily lives of the residents, especially the children.

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
