Israeli's haven't responded yet to attack on Apartheid Wall

I ended up going to Bil'lin last night to make sure that people wern't arrested for removing pieces of the wall. There were no attacks from Israeli soldiers that night. I inspected the wall in the morning and four more sections were removed. Each section of the wall has expensive electrical equipment so it isn't that easy for the Israeli government to rebuild. This act won't stop the occupation but stunts like this boost the morale of the villagers.

Whilst in Australia we would say that anyone who damages government property could face jail time, here the Israeli government posts signs on their illegal walls stating that anyone who damages it is in mortal danger. Of course they are in mortal danger, the army that erected the signs might shoot them, but at least they were warned!
