Palestine: Santa Claus strikes back on West Bank

Some 50 Palestinians—many decked out in Santa Claus costumes—hurled stones at Israeli security forces in the West Bank village of Bil’in Dec. 26 in a protest against the enclosure of village lands by the “Apartheid Wall.” Soldiers sought to disperse the crowd with tear gas and rubber-coated bullets. In Na’alin, 200 Palestinians and Israeli supporters also held protests that day, some hurling stones and petrol bombs at Israeli soldiers. Army Radio reported that dozens of young Likud supporters led by MK Gilad Erdan also arrived in Na’alin to express their support for the soldiers. (Haartez, Dec. 26)
