Conflict in Israel and Palestine: Crash Course World History 223
In which John Green teaches you about conflict in Israel and Palestine. This conflict is often cast as a long-term beef going back thousands of years, and rooted in a clash between religions. Well, that's not quite true. What is true is that the conflict is immensely complicated, and just about everyone in the world has an opinion about it. John is going to try to get the facts across in under 13 minutes.

The Middle East Problem
The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know. In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how, since that auspicious day in 1948, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.  Donate today to PragerU! http://l.prageru.com/2ylo1Yt Joining PragerU is free!

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: When I did my graduate studies at the Middle East Institute at Columbia University’s School of International Affairs, I took many courses on the question of the Middle East conflict. Semester after semester, we studied the Middle East conflict as if it was the most complex conflict in the world -- when in fact, it is probably the easiest conflict in the world to explain. It may be the hardest to solve, but it is the easiest to explain. In a nutshell, it’s this: One side wants the other side dead. Israel wants to exist as a Jewish state and to live in peace. Israel also recognizes the right of Palestinians to have their own state and to live in peace. The problem, however, is that most Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs, do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist. This has been true since 1947, when the United Nations voted to divide the land called Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews accepted the United Nations partition but no Arab or any other Muslim country accepted it. When British rule ended on May 15, 1948, the armies of all the neighboring Arab states -- Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Transjordan, and Egypt -- attacked the one-day old state of Israel in order to destroy it. But, to the world’s surprise, the little Jewish state survived. Then it happened again. In 1967, the dictator of Egypt, Gamal Abdel Nasser, announced his plan, in his words, “to destroy Israel.” He placed Egyptian troops on Israel’s border, and armies of surrounding Arab countries were also mobilized to attack. However, Israel preemptively attacked Egypt and Syria. Israel did not attack Jordan, and begged Jordan’s king not to join the war. But he did. And only because of that did Israel take control of Jordanian land, specifically the “West Bank” of the Jordan River. Shortly after the war, the Arab states went to Khartoum, Sudan and announced their famous three “No’s: “No recognition, no peace, and no negotiations,” What was Israel supposed to do? Well, one thing Israel did, a little more than a decade later, in 1978, was to give the entire Sinai Peninsula -- an area of land bigger than Israel itself, and with oil -- back to Egypt because Egypt, under new leadership, signed a peace agreement with Israel. So, Israel gave land for the promise of peace with Egypt, and it has always been willing to do the same thing with the Palestinians. All the Palestinians have ever had to do is recognize Israel as a Jewish state and promise to live in peace with it. But when Israel has proposed trading land for peace -- as it did in 2000 when it agreed to give the Palestinians a sovereign state in more than 95% of the West Bank and all of Gaza -- the Palestinian leadership rejected the offer, and instead responded by sending waves of suicide terrorists into Israel. Meanwhile, Palestinian radio, television, and school curricula remain filled with glorification of terrorists, demonization of Jews, and the daily repeated message that Israel should cease to exist. So it’s not hard to explain the Middle-East dispute. One side wants the other dead. The motto of Hamas, the Palestinian rulers of Gaza, is: “We love death as much as the Jews love life.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/middle-east-problem

The Middle East's cold war, explained
How two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The Saudis and Iranians have never actually declared war on each other. Instead, they fight indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries and inciting conflicts. This is known as proxy warfare. And it’s had a devastating effect on the region. Countries, especially poor ones, can’t function if there are larger countries pulling strings within their borders. And that’s exactly what's happening in the Middle East. The Saudi-Iranian rivalry has become a fight over influence, and the whole region is a battlefield.

The 1948 Israeli War of Independence
The 1948 Israeli War of Independence began when the United Nations decided to partition Palestine into separated Jewish and Arab states. The Arabs were not staisfied with the deal, as they wanted Palestine to be for Arabs only. They said that they would "fight for every inch of our country." Riots ensued almost immediately after the Partition Plan was approved. Arabs were able to take over many British military bases, and used the weaponry they acquired to launch attacks on Jewish communities. Jewish militias fought back, and after the British left Palestine, Israel was declared a state. The 1948 War of Independence was a conflict that was instigated by the proposition of a compromise. For that reason, the topic is consistent with the theme of "Conflict and Compromise," though the order in which the two take lace in my topic is not identical to the order of the2007-2008 National History Day theme. The compromise occurred before the conflict.

5min vers. Palestine & Israel: A history lesson from 1947 when it all began
Many people in this world are still confused as to why the war between Palestine and Israel began. Many are unaware of the circumstances that took place to set this entire scenario up and only through ignorance are they able to maintain beliefs that are falsely founded. Mike Peled son of an Israeli General and uncle to a 13 year old niece who was killed by Palestinian suicide bombers does a great job dispelling the myths and pointing out the historical beginnings to this never ending war. In my effort to learn more about the never ending Palestinian/Israeli war (because let's face it, most of us probably don't know shit; only what our TVs have taught us), and where/why it all began I came across an hour long presentation by Mr.Peled; I edited it down to 11 minutes to only show the historical facts he deemed important to mention regarding this conflict's birth, evolution & endless cycle. Please share so that people with the incorrect facts and beliefs may understand the truth.

Gershon Baskin: The Israeli Palestinian Peace process: lessons learned
Gershon Baskin- The Israeli Palestinian Peace process: lessons learned from 22 years of failed agreements April 29, 2015 Israeli Palestinian – is it still possible? Twenty two years of failed peace process have left the public on both sides of the conflict with a deep sense that there is no partner for peace and that peace is not possible. Israel and the PLO signed six agreements over the years and all of them were breached. Many lessons can be drawn from the long years of experience in negotiations and in implementation (and non-implementation) of agreements. This lecture will focus on the lessons that should be learned from the failures of Israeli Palestinian peace processes and conclusions will be offered regarding future prospects. The lessons learned have clear prescriptive dimensions for other conflicts and peace processes as well. http://scar.gmu.edu/event/gershon-baskin-israeli-palestinian-peace-process-lessons-learned-22-years-of-failed-agreements
Israeli Palestinian conflict explained: an animated introduction to Israel and Palestine
Israeli Palestinian conflict explained: an animated introduction Israel and Palestine Easy to understand, historically accurate https://JewishVoiceforPeace.org/ mini- primer about why Israelis and Palestinians are fighting, why the US-backed peace process has been an impediment to peace, and what you can do to make a difference. This conflict is essentially about land and human rights, not religion and culture. Endorsed by Palestinian, Israeli and American scholars and peace activists. Jewish Voice for Peace opposes anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, and anti-Arab bigotry and oppression. JVP seeks an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem; security and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians; a just solution for Palestinian refugees based on principles established in international law; an end to violence against civilians; and peace and justice for all peoples of the Middle East. Current mission statement adopted in 2009. Jewish Voice for Peace is a diverse and democratic community of activists inspired by Jewish tradition to work together for peace, social justice, and human rights. We support the aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians for security and self-determination. We seek: A U.S. foreign policy based on promoting peace, democracy, human rights, and respect for international law. An end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem. A resolution of the Palestinian refugee problem consistent with international law and equity. An end to all violence against civilians. Peace among the peoples of the Middle East. We are among the many American Jews who say to the U.S. and Israeli governments: “Not in our names!” JVP supports peace activists in Palestine and Israel, and works in broad coalition with other Jewish, Arab-American, faith-based, peace and social justice organizations. Jewish Voice for Peace calls for a U.S. foreign policy that promotes democracy and human rights. The United States must stop supporting repressive policies in Israel and elsewhere. U.S. military aid to countries in the Middle East must be based on rigorous enforcement of the Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Acts, which mandate that military aid may be used for only defensive purposes within the recipient country’s borders, and that aid may not be delivered to countries that abuse human rights. Under these guidelines, U.S. military aid to Israel must be suspended until the occupation ends, since the occupation itself is in violation of these guidelines. Military aid allows Israel to avoid making serious efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as conflicts with its other neighbors. It enables the occupation, contributes to the devastation of Palestinian society and fosters the increasing militarization of Israeli society. JVP also calls for suspension of military aid to other human rights abusers and occupiers in the Middle East. This aid helps prop up autocratic and repressive regimes, promotes violations of human rights and international law, obstructs democratic movements, prolongs the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and fosters militarism and violence at home and abroad.

Origins of Israel Palestinian Conflict
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport The Israeli Arab conflict is the result of interactions of superpowers in the early 20th century. British and French strategic interests in the Middle East were related to the Mediterranean trading route, which went from the Suez channel to Indian markets. But the presence of the Ottoman navy based in the Levant was a direct threat to British interests. So the British and the French decided to divide the Middle East into smaller entities and countries to make it impossible for the Ottoman Empire to control them all. A century later, the legacy of European colonization of the Arab world is reflected by its many ongoing conflicts.

Northern Ireland’s Lessons for Israeli-Palestinian Peace
When Northern Ireland’s combatants finally made peace in the 1990s, they did so on a broad foundation of grassroots reconciliation and economic development work, built over more than a decade by the International Fund for Ireland. On March 13, the U.S. Institute of Peace and the Embassy of Ireland will gather former government officials, peacebuilding practitioners and scholars to examine what worked in advancing peace in Northern Ireland—and what lessons might be applied to the difficult process of peacemaking and peacebuilding between Israelis and Palestinians. Former Senator George Mitchell, who served as an envoy in both peace processes, will be the keynote speaker.

Israel violates Geneva Conventions during Peace Talks
Interesting that Biden's visit to Israel and his strong words about "Settlement" or "Illegal Occupation"(you decide) coincided with General Petraeus' concerns that the Palestinian/Israeli conflict could negatively affect strategic plans for IRAN. Petraeus also stated that Iran's nuclear ambitions have moved "further to the right" as he puts it in the video at 5:17 . With the precedence of the Iraq war and lessons learned, the US Administration could have used these intelligence quotes from few years back for a little perspective. We have high confidence that they have WMD. That is what this war Was about & it is about. And we have high confidence it will be found. --Ari Fleischer, 4/10/2003 "We have Not found stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction.

🇵🇸 🇮🇱 History suppressed: Censorship in Israel's archives | The Listening Post (Feature)
Sealed in Israel's archives and libraries are troves of Palestinian books, documents, photographs and films that were looted from Palestinian institutions and personal archives by Jewish militias and later, the Israeli military. "This confiscation is a kind of daily struggle that Palestinians face," says Sherene Seikaly, a scholar of Middle Eastern history. "One of the reasons, that these archives are a target, that they're threatening, is because they're really a record of Palestinian social life, and Palestine more broadly." Israeli historian Rona Sela has spent 20 years uncovering Palestinian visual history that has been kept in the dark in Israel's state and military archives. She says the methodical plunder of Palestinians' cultural assets predates the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, what Palestinians call the 'Nakba' or 'catastrophe.' "The looting and seizure, as far as I found, started in the 1930s in a systematic and organised manner ... by Haganah forces [Zionist paramilitary group]. The seizure intensified, of course, with the Nakba in 1948. I found materials taken in 1967, 1982, 1991 and ... in the last few years." What begins with looting and appropriation, continues with a system of censorship and historical revisionism in the archives. The origin of Palestinian material is often erased and replaced with terminology that fits the archivist's world view. "I saw photos with comments and notes written on them by the censors and archivists. For example, Palestinians are described as 'terrorists', as 'gangs'. Seeing all of that taught me about how the materials go through a process of rewriting to aid or benefit the Zionist narrative," says Sela. "You see a place where the materials are being censored and erased from the public sphere." The suppression of history doesn't only extend to Palestinian material. The Israeli archives also guard state secrets that could reveal details about Israel's treatment of Palestinians. Historians and journalists say the policy of censoring incriminating material in the archives exposes the deep insecurity Israel has about its past, with archivists employed as the 'gatekeepers' of history. "Israel is terrified of the contents of its own archives, and doesn't want its history to be exposed," says Mahmoud Yazbak, a professor at the University of Haifa. "The government's ... aim is to hide the past from researchers in order to prevent it from being part of the present and the future." Palestinians see the censorship as part of a wider trend of physical and cultural erasure that began in 1948 and has continued ever since. Concealing the archival record denies them the tools to communicate their own history, what the Palestinian intellectual and literary theorist Edward Said called "permission to narrate." "The fact that these documents have been taken away from Palestinian hands is a sign of contempt for Palestinian history," says Yazbak. "It's an attempt to suggest Palestinians have no history, no documents, no belongings." The Listening Post's Tariq Nafi looks at the silencing of Palestinian history in Israel's archives.

U.S.  Foreign Wars & Conflicts - Overview
This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This lesson is an overview of U.S. foreign wars and conflicts, with a focus on the government’s response. The conflicts involved include: the Mexican American War, the Spanish American War, World War I & II, the Cold War, Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, Iran Hostage Crisis, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11, the Iraq & Afghanistan Wars, and “War on Terror.” Students will be provided an overview to consider how the American response to war and conflict has changed over the course of its history. Concepts included are: isolationism, neutrality, war powers of the U.S. government, and the expanding role of the U.S. as the “world’s police force.” Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam, as well as Virginia’s Civics SOL exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

The'y’ve vowed to sabotage Ariel Sharon’s disengagement plan. “We will not be driven out. We intend to remain here,” vows settler Moshe Saperstein defiantly. Having lost an arm in the Yom Kippur war and been wounded in a terrorist attack, he’s already fought for the right to live in Gaza. Now, he’s preparing to take on the Government. And he'’s not alone. The settlers’ organisation, Yesha Council, plans to deploy 100,000 settlers to the Gaza strip and West Bank to resist the evictions. “We hope to gain experience from civil disobedience demonstrations all over the globe,” states Yisrael Medad, spokesperson for Yesha Council. They’re also considering ways of combating the wide international support Sharon has gained for his disengagement plan. One option is to send “people to Washington to work on Congress, especially among the right wing, neo-conservatives and Christian Right.” But while the settlers plan their resistance, Palestinians in Gaza are eagerly awaiting their departure. “We want to live in happiness, without any fear and with freedom of movement,” states resident Abu Anwar Ghaly. For now, there is a wary calm in Gaza. But both sides know this peace could easily be shattered.

In both of these cases, the United States sent soldiers to intervene in civil wars that it looked like communists might win. That's a bit of a simplification, but John will explain it all to you.

Palestinian chief negotiator: Peace process arms us for war
http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=472&fld_id=474&doc_id=2430 Chief Palestinian negotiator for the 1993 Oslo Accords Nabil Shaath states at a closed meeting in 1996 that the Palestinian side never intended to seriously work towards peace. Rather, the Palestinian strategy was to pursue the peace process with Israel only as long as Palestinian demands were being met. As soon as Israel ceased meeting Palestinian demands, the PA plan was to revert to terror, this time armed with weapons supplied by Israel during the peace process (given to Palestinian police force in order to fight Palestinian terror). This is an example of PA duplicity, in which the PA claims to genuinely pursue peace, when it in fact takes advantage of times of peace and negotiations to pursue war against Israel. Transcript: Nabil Shaath, chief PLO negotiator for 1993 Oslo Accords: "We decided to begin liberating our homeland step by step. This is the strategy. It is now impossible for the peace process to stop, for if it does, all the acts of violence will return to Israel. We say: Should Israel continue - no problem. And so we honor the peace treaties and non-violence, so long as the agreements are fulfilled step by step. (But) if and when Israel says "enough", namely - "we won't discuss Jerusalem, we won't return refugees, we won't dismantle settlements, we won't withdraw to the borers", in that case it is saying that we will return to violence. But this time, it will be with 30,000 armed Palestinian soldiers and in a land with elements of freedom. I'm the first one to call for it. If we get to a deadlock we shall return to the fighting and struggle, as we have fought for 40 years or more." [Jan. 1996]

The Seven Years War and the Great Awakening: Crash Course US History #5
In which John Green teaches you about the beginnings of the American Revolution in a video titled The Seven Years War. Confusing? Maybe. John argues that the Seven Years War, which is often called the French and Indian War in the US, laid a lot of the groundwork for the Revolution. More confusing? Why does this war have two names? Why were the French and Indians fighting each other? The Seven Years war was actually a global war that went on for nine years. I think I'm having trouble making this clear. Anyway, the part of this global war that happened in North America was the French and Indian War. The French and Indian tribes were the force opposing the British, so that's the name that stuck. Let's get away from this war, as it makes my head hurt. Other stuff was going on in the colonies in the 18th century that primed the people for revolution. One was the Great Awakening. Religious revival was sweeping the country, introducing new ideas about religion and how it should be practiced. At the same time thinkers like John Locke were rethinking the relationship between rulers and the ruled. So in this highly charged atmosphere, you can just imagine what would happen if the crown started trying to exert more control over the colonies. The colonists would probably just rise up, right? We'll see what happens next week.

This Burning Land extended trailer
Greg Myre and Jennifer Griffin, journalists who are husband and wife, arrived in Jerusalem in 1999 with plans to begin a family and hopes of witnessing a historic Middle East peace deal. They soon found themselves raising two young daughters while covering the worst fighting ever between Israelis and Palestinians. In "This Burning Land," Myre, a former New York Times reporter, and Griffin, a Fox News correspondent, show readers how the conflict has changed dramatically over the past decade. They witness the pivotal events and delve into the thinking that motivates some Palestinians to be suicide bombers and others to work as informants for Israel's security forces. They travel to isolated West Bank outposts where Israeli settlers vow never to relinquish the land, and accompany young Israeli troops as they stage midnight raids in militant strongholds. They weave these stories together to addresses the fundamental paradox at the core of the conflict. Israel is stronger than it's ever been, with a vibrant society, a flourishing economy and a powerful military. Yet it cannot find a way to end the feud with the Palestinians. In turn, the world supports the Palestinian dream of statehood, and yet no such state is likely to emerge soon.

Noam Chomsky & Victor Kattan - Why History Matters - Israel/Palestine 6/7
Given the volume of writing on the Arab-Israeli conflict, "you might think that everything has been said," says Noam Chomsky. But Victor Kattan's new book, Coexistence to Conquest: International Law and the Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, takes a fresh look at the prehistory of the dispute, as well as the evolution of international law and its import for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine, says Chomsky. While he is familiar with much of the material in this account, Chomsky also notes episodes in Kattan's narrative that open up new, "sordid chapters" in these "convoluted, complex, often painful historical events." Kattan set out to explore how the conflict began, and so pored over the writing of scores of European political figures, and leaders of Zionist and Arab nationalist movements of the late 19th and 20th centuries. His key insight: Neither Arabs nor Jews were to blame for triggering hostilities, but rather Britain, and the other major powers. Kattan argues that anti-Semitism, which welled up during a period of collapsing colonial empires, motivated British actions that led to a Jewish homeland in Palestine, and paved the way for trouble over decades to the current time. In the 19th century, Jews viciously persecuted in Russia began flooding Western Europe, especially Britain, where many thousands more embarked to the U.S. America and Britain were the promised land to the Jews, says Kattan -- not Palestine. But British distaste for these immigrants soon led to plans for diverting the unwanted foreigners to an alternative location. In the early 1900s, Kattan describes documents authored by British statesmen, and by such early Zionist leaders as Theodor Herzl, arguing that Britain's Jewish immigration "problem" could be solved by finding Jews a homeland in Palestine. Kattan even cites U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis endorsing such a solution. Anti-immigrant fervor, says Kattan, led to the Balfour Declaration of 1917, describing Britain's intention to facilitate a Jewish homeland in Palestine. This was a compromised piece of diplomacy, suggests Kattan, ushering in an era of unending disputes and hostility. Key issues the British sidestepped or muddied, says Kattan, included promises made to Arabs for their own independent kingdom, and the principle of self-determination, emergent in international law, which would have acknowledged the claims of the Arab majority in the lands carved out for the Jews. While Britain bore the largest share in creating the Middle East mess -- with its many vital interests in the region -- Kattan says that other nations were complicit, entangled as they were by immigration and independence movements and their own strategic influence. Kattan follows this sorry tale through the Second World War and Israel's founding, describing repeated failed attempts to reach a settlement between Arabs and Jews over a shared homeland. But due to a conflict set in motion so many years before, a "culture of blame" now exists that will likely prevent agreement, particularly, says Kattan, "as long as Israeli settlements expand."

The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

Taxes & Smuggling - Prelude to Revolution: Crash Course US History #6
In which John Green teaches you about the roots of the American Revolution. The Revolution did not start on July 4, 1776. The Revolutionary War didn't start on July 4 either. (as you remember, I'm sure, the Revolution and the Revolutionary War are not the same thing) The shooting started on April 19, 1775, at Lexington and/or Concord, MA. Or the shooting started with the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770. At least we can pin down the Declaration of Independence to July 4, 1776. Except that most of the signers didn't sign until August 2. The point is that the beginning of the Revolution is very complex and hard to pin down. John will lead you through the bramble of taxes, royal decrees, acts of parliament, colonial responses, and various congresses. We'll start with the end of the Seven Years War, and the bill that the British ran up fighting the war. This led to taxes on colonial trade, which led to colonists demanding representation, which led to revolution.

They raised the Palestinian flag so that demonstrators in besieged Gaza could see it. They also carried a banner in Arabic reading “Jews for Return”. The Israeli and international demonstrators were assaulted and arrested by the Israeli military and police. Hours later they were released from the Netivot police station. At the same time, one Palestinian demonstrator, 25 years old Ahmed Atallah, was killed by an Israeli sharpshooter. The next morning, 15 years old Muath Ziad al-Suri succumbed to injuries he sustained during the Friday demonstration. Additionally, about 220 people were injured, many from live ammunition. According to health officials in Gaza, this brings the number of slain protestors to at least 153 and injured to more than 16,000 since the weekly protests began on March 30. “We were beaten and abused by the Israeli military today but it is nothing compared to the violence Gazans face on a daily basis,” said Omer upon his release from police custody. “We will continue to do whatever we can to subvert this violent and horrific siege, and work for justice.” https://schwarczenberg.com/anti-zionist-israeli-activists-demonstrate-at-the-other-side-of-the-gaza-fence/
