Staging the Occupation in Nabi Saleh

If an image is worth a thousand words, how much is a video worth? Especially when it’s of young children and their mothers fighting a heavily armed soldier—grabbing, punching, and biting him—as he detains one of the kids, a kid whose arm is already in a cast from an injury caused by soldiers the week before? Apparently, the video is worth 100,000 hits its first day on YouTube. And over 3 million by the third day, and so on. The incident took place on a hill belonging to the West Bank Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh, about 12 miles northwest of Ramallah.
