The High Court of Justice authorized Peace Now activists to hold a demonstration marking 40 years of "occupation" in the West Bank on Tuesday. The June 6 demonstration has been denounced by IDF officials who say that it would put protesters, soldiers, police, Palestinian and Israeli residents of Hebron in danger. Hebron Brigade commander Col. Yehuda Fox said that disorderly conduct caused by settlers could put peoples' lives at risk. Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch and Judges Elazar Rivlin and Uzi Fogleman made decision on Monday following the submission of a petition by the movement against OC Central Command. Peace Now director-general Yariv Oppenheimer noted that it was regrettable that in order to allow for freedom of speech to be implemented, it was necessary to have the High Court intervene.

  • Settlers plan another protest at Homesh The movement filed their petition to the court after a previous attempt to hold the demonstration during former OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh's tenure, who turned down their request. Meanwhile, Israeli and Palestinian artists who "oppose the occupation and continue to call for its immediate end," opened a joint exhibition at the Jerusalem Artists House on Monday. The six-day show presents hundreds of images sent via e-mail by artists from Israel, the Palestinian Authority and around the world, in response to an internet chain letter. All the images were printed in an A4 format and hung without selection or editing. The display has been organized by artists Larry Abramson, David Tartakover, Saliman Mantzur and David Reeb. The exhibition will close on June 10. Meir Ronnen contributed to this report.
