RAMALLAH, April 27 (JMCC) - The non-violent protests that happen weekly in the villages of Nabi Saleh and Bilin are made of the same stuff that US officials have lauded in other Arab countries, says Mark Perry in Foreign Policy
Pollak, Dana, and other international activists are working to bring attention to the Nabi Saleh movement and have escorted diplomats from Europe through the village. A few low-level American diplomats from Jerusalem have come to Nabi Saleh, but no senior American officials have visited. The international community has been asking for years where the Palestinian nonviolent movement is, Joseph Dana says from his home in Jerusalem. Well, here it is. And the Americans are nowhere to be found.
