The Israeli Supreme Court rejected an appeal submitted by the residents of Bil’in and Kharbata, west of Ramallah, in the West Bank demanding cease to the construction of the separation wall on their villages.
The judges panel headed by Judge Aharaon barak rejected the appeal claiming that it came late, after the objection period was over.
The court did not totally reject Kharabata.  It said the residents of the village may amend their appeal and resubmitted.
ON the other hand, the court said, it would allow the Bil’in residents to re-appeal however; they have to do so individually, not as one group.
Outside the court, as the protestors gathered, Israeli policemen detained an international Peace Activist on Tuesday after the man waved a Palestinian flag outside the Supreme Court building in Jerusalem. The activist took part in a demonstration against the construction of the West Bank’s separation fence.
Protesters included Israeli, Palestinian and International peace activists waving signs and chanting slogans.  One of them, waving the Palestinian flag, refused to abide by the police’s request to put it away and was taken in for questioning.
Three other internationals were also arrested in the nonviolent protest.
Palestinian Children to demonstrate in front of Israel’s Supreme Court
In an unprecedented move, the children of the West Bank village of Bil’in will demonstrate in front of the Israeli Supreme court in Jerusalem on Tuesday against the confiscation of their land for the construction of the separation wall.
The court is to rule on Tuesday on the appeals submitted by two villages, Bil’in and the neighboring Kharbata villages, in bid to stop the confiscation orders.
Bil’in’s resident above the age of 14, whose lands are concerned, were not allowed to go to the court by the Israeli authorities.  This court session is crucial for the residents.
The Gush Shalom peace movement invited its supporters to join the children in their protest.
The village of Bil’in has been nonviolently resisting the wall since the construction and the land confiscation started.  So far, most of the protests organized by the village were met with violence from the Israeli soldiers, who used tear gas, sound grenades and recently used a new sonic weapon.
The army claims this weapon will be used against the settlers during the evacuation of the settlements in the Gaza strip under the disengagement plan.
According to recent survey, conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute’s annual ‘Democracy Index’ survey in cooperation with The Seventh Eye periodical, the Supreme Court is the most trustworthy legal authority in the Israeli government.
The Supreme Court recently ruled that the Unilateral Disengagement plan Israel is intending to carry on by pulling out of the Gaza Strip settlements and four minor northern West Bank ones is legal despite the different accusations of illegality.  Additionally, the court ruled that the West Bank and the Gaza Strip are not part of Israel.
