Some 700 Palestinian demonstrators in Bethlehem waited in vain on Saturday evening for activists from Ta’ayush Jewish-Arab Coexistence to arrive for a planned joint demonstration in the middle of the occupied city. When it turned out that the IDF would not allow the two sides to meet, they decided to use mobile phones and loudspeakers to show”there is someone to talk to” on both sides.

There were Palestinians who found it difficult to believe the Israeli authorities would indeed prevent a peace demonstration from taking place.”
