Palestinian activists have called for a “day of rage” in the Palestinian Territories May 28. Specifically, activists are planning a demonstration after Friday prayers outside of the Al-Bireh Grand Mosque in the West Bank.
Tomorrow, Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank are calling for a day of rage, why? Because they are angry that Hamas and Israel agreed to a ceasefire, and want the ‘action’ to start back up again as soon as possible. The Jerusalem Post reports today that ‘With scarcely a week since a cease-fire was secured in the military confrontation between Israel and Hamas, the Israeli military is poised for a possible resumption of the fighting in the near future, with top military officials believing that Hamas could yet reengage.”
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:2,3 (KJB)
Politicians go round and round about ‘peace in the Middle East’ and the Two State Solution, but the hard, cold reality is that there cannot possibly be peace while both the Jews and Palestinians are claiming ownership of Jerusalem, until you solve that problem, there will be no solution, single, double or otherwise. But the Abraham Accords may just turn out to be the right combination, tomorrow should be interesting to say the least, and we will bring you all the ‘action’ as it happens.
Palestinian Territories: Related protests likely amid call for “day of rage” demonstration in Al-Bireh, West Bank, May 28
FROM GARDA WORLD: Additional demonstrations are likely to materialize around popular protest sites, including public squares, city centers, and government buildings; previous related protests have convened at Martyrs’ Square in Nablus and Manarah Square in Ramallah. Activists may also gather at flashpoint sites, including near Israeli settlements, military checkpoints, and territorial border areas. Associated demonstrations are possible in the Gaza Strip.
Increased security deployments are likely throughout Palestinian villages and Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Clashes are possible if protesters are overly disruptive or fail to adhere to the instructions of security personnel. Israeli security forces typically respond aggressively to perceived threats, and have employed riot-control measures and occasionally fired warning shots or live ammunition during recent similar actions, particularly in East Jerusalem and near Israeli settlements and security checkpoints in the West Bank. Localized ground transportation disruptions are likely near all affected sites.

The call to protest comes amid heightened tensions following a ceasefire agreement that ended cross-border fire between the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Gaza-based militants May 21. Gazan militants launched over 4,300 rocket and mortar rounds toward communities in southern and central Israel, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, May 10-21. The IDF responded with hundreds of retaliatory airstrikes against militant targets in Gaza. The recent bout of violence constituted the most intense cross-border fire between Israeli and Palestinian forces in almost a decade. At least 12 Israelis and over 230 Palestinians were killed amid the conflict, with over 1,500 others injured. While active hostilities have seemingly concluded and the ceasefire has held to date, further violence remains possible.
Avoid all announced or proposed protest actions due to the potential for violence. Exercise caution near likely protest locations. Minimize exposure to places of worship, security installations, markets, and other crowded locations. Monitor local media for protest activity, as organizers may not announce plans in advance. Consider deferring nonessential travel to the West Bank and Gaza Strip amid any widespread protest activity. Confirm the availability of transport and allow additional time to reach destinations. Plan for increased security and localized transport disruptions near demonstrations. Follow all police instructions. READ MORE
