Father Ibrahim Shomali: Catholic Priest

After a long battle against the building of the separation wall in the Cremisan valley in Beit Jala, Israeli Special Appeals Committee ruled in favor of building the wall on April 24. This decision will deprive people from Beit Jala from their right to practice their religious, agricultural, and cultural traditions by severing them from the lands that have been in their families for generations. Father Ibrahim Shomali is the Catholic parish priest who has been leading an open-air mass in the valley in hopes to save the valley.

As one of the organizers of the al-Nabi Salneh protests and a coordinator of the village's popular committee, Bassem Tamimi and his family have been the target of harsh treatment by the Israeli army.

His wife has been arrested twice and two of his children have been injured -- Wa'ed was in hospital for five days after he was hit in the leg by a rubber bullet and Mohammed was injured by a tear-gas canister that was shot directly at him and hit him in the shoulder. Bassem Tamimi has been arrested by the Israeli army 11 times to date, though he has only once been convicted by a military court - on charges that Amnesty International believes were unfounded.
