Khatib's arrest today is the most severe escalation in a recent wave of repression again the Palestinian popular struggle and its leadership. Khatib is the 35th resident of Bilin to be arrested on suspicions related to anti-Wall protest since June 23rd, 2009. The recent wave of arrests is largely an assault on the members of the Popular Committees - the leadership of the popular struggle - who are then charged with incitement when arrested.
