A glimpse into Israeli Brutality....around 39 seconds in you can watch an IDF soldier hitting a Palestinian young woman half his size.
In Logan Hall, I met an old friend of mine, a much respected PSC activist and a very insightful woman. We both knew the truth: the Arab community had supported the event -- but the English and the Jewish activists were just not there. I asked my friend, how is it that all those Jewish fiery enthusiast activists who join every BDS call to boo Israeli artists off stage -- had failed to support the crème of Palestinian culture and artists? I do understand the reasoning behind Israeli boycott activity, and yet, isn't it equally important to support Palestinian artists?
My friend's answer was simple: "They may call themselves Palestinian Solidarity campaigners -- but in reality, they are largely interested in Jewish anti Israeli solidarity," she said.
