Once again, Israel shows its opinion of non-violent protest

The vice president of the European parliament, an Italian judge and a
Northern Irish Nobel Peace prize laureate were among the five people injured at Friday's weekly demonstration in Bil'in against the separation fence.

The three dignitaries - Giulio Toscano, Luisa Morgantini and Mairead Corrigan Maguire - were visiting the Palestinian village as part of a three-day international conference on non-violent resistance, which ended Friday.

Toscano, the judge, was hit in the head by a tear-gas dispenser, witnesses and medics said. (Source)
