(These protests showed that Palestinians are untied against occupation whenever they live or under which authorities )
(Ma’an) — A global “Day of Rage” against the Prawer Plan took place in nearly 30 cities worldwide on Saturday, Nov. 30., and dozens were detained as Israeli police attacked protests .
Large demonstrations in more than 14 countries united Palestinians, and citizens of many other countries in protest against the plan, which if implemented will displace tens of thousands of Bedouins from their homes in southern Israel.
Although the protests were largely peaceful worldwide, protestors were met with force within Israel, as Israeli police attacked the large demonstrations in the Negev, Haifa, Umm al-Fahm and Jerusalem, detaining dozens.
Protestors in the West Bank were also met with force, and three Palestinians were detained as they marched near Ramallah towards the Israeli settlement of Bet El.
Particularly striking about the protests inside Israel were that Israeli police used violent tactics of “riot dispersal” commonly used against Palestinians in the West Bank but rarely seen within Israel.
The majority of demonstrators in the Negev, Haifa, Jaffa, and Jerusalem were Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, a factor that activists said encouraged Israeli police to use levels of violence rarely witnessed by majority-Jewish protesters.(see videos)

Syrian Artist ABDALLA OMARI
The viewer who enters the exhibition place gets confronted at first sight with a situation in which the artist is about to finish setting up the artwork. A ladder, nails and paint are still on the floor seemingly waiting to be used. At second sight the sentence “Giving up is not an option” is surely to be read ironically. The artist gave up installing a piece named Giving up is not an option and the work is finished exactly by not being finished.
What seems to be a green peace flag from far away reveals itself as a massive war zone filled with 20.000 toy soldiers when approaching the piece. Where the sodiers don’t stand the peace sign is revealed, each side of the dyptichon contributing equal part of the well known symbol.
