Friday’s Scripted Clashes

May 4, 2006 14:29 by

YNet News found that clashes at the security fence in Bil’in are anything but spontaneous:

It’s a script known in advance, played out by the same actors every Friday. The number of those injured changes every week, but the damage caused to the West Bank security fence is only increasing, standing today at NIS 1 million (USD 223,000)…

The IDF calls the protests against the fence the “Friday game” – an attempt by anarchists to maintain public attention and turn it against the fence.

HonestReporting-Canada addressed the Manufactured Dissent at Bil’in months ago. For a good idea of what the next clash will look like, just watch YNet News’ video of the last one.
