May 10, 2012— A police officer pushes back a haredi protester during clashes at the Western Wall, Jerusalem. The Ultra Orthodox community came out in the thousands to rally against the Women of the Wall and the recent court ruling granting the group of women legal freedom to wear prayer shawls and pray out loud at the Wall, customs traditionally practiced only by men.

Thousands of Israeli-Arabs march with Palestinian flags in the village of Sakhnin in a demonstration marking the 37th annual Land Day. Land Day commemorates the first Arab protest which began in Sakhnin against the Israeli government’s land confiscation in the Galilee in 1976, during which 6 Arabs were killed. Over the years, more Arab villages across Israel, as well as Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, joined the annual demonstration. The demonstrations call to end ongoing land appropriations, and more recently, the imprisonment of thousands of Palestinians in Israeli jails.
