Roma, 25 luglio 2017, Nena News – Non sono stati fatti salire sull’aereo che da Washington li avrebbe dovuti portare in Israele perché sostenitori della campagna Bds. È quanto ieri hanno denunciato cinque membri del gruppo Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), un’organizzazione statunitense che promuove i diritti umani per i palestinesi. I cinque (tra i quali una rabbina, due pacifisti presbiteriani e un esponente dei Musulmani americani per la Palestina di Los Angeles) stavano viaggiando con una delegazione interconfessionale che avrebbe dovuto incontrare in Israele e Palestina leader religiosi e attivisti dei diritti umani.

Dear Giorgio,

Dareen Tatour is a Palestinian poet and citizen of Israel who was arrested nine months ago in the middle of the night. Her crime? Writing a poem and posting it on Youtube.

Marina Hansen: "My friend and I amuse ourselves while waiting to be interrogated by playing with the babies of Palestinian families who were also waiting to be questioned. Behind her is the line to cross Israeli passport control from Jordan into Israel where we were both rejected and told to sit in the waiting area."

 

The walls are covered with Israeli flags and multiple computer screens around the room showing an article I co-wrote for the Columbia Spectator, the Facebook pages for Columbia’s JVP and SJP chapters, and my profile on Canary Mission
