Younes Arar takes us through a typical day in Occupied Palestine

“Great, inspiring and proud man,
His name is Abu Tariq, he is about 70 years old, I had the honor to meet him today but in a bad occasion and circumstances, his house, his brothers and children houses were demolished today by Zionist occupation forces to force them out of their houses. I shock hands with him, introduced myself and offered help on behalf of the organization I represent “Colonization and Apartheid wall Resistance Commission), he smiled with love and respect and said: they could demolish our houses every day but I assure you that we will rebuild over and over again, we are the salt of this land, they could demolish our houses but will never be able to uproot us from our land”, then he added, “many years before, they used to come here every day morning, chase us out of our houses at gunpoint, and we come back same day evening, many years doing that almost every day, but never succeeded to drive us away from our land and will never be able, we were born here, grown up here and will certainly die here, we are going no where no matter we they do, our houses were demolished before, we were beaten, kidnapped but we never give up, we are still here and will continue to stay here, our roots run very deep in our land like an olive tree” 2 February 2016.

Steadfast,
A phrase written on the rubble of the demolished house by the owners “steadfast”, in other words: they are telling the Zionist occupation: we are staying right here, going no where but here, if you demolish our house, we will rebuild it, even if you demolish a million times we will rebuild, but we are going no where but here…22 residential structures where demolished in this area (Jenba and Halawa in South Hebron Hills) today morning by Zionist occupation forces aiming to force the residents out of their land in favor of colonial expansion, 2 February 2016.
