Yonatan Shapira sprays ‘Free Gaza’ on Warsaw Ghetto wall

on 3 Comments

Combatants for Peace co-founder and IDF refuser Yonatan Shapira sprayed the messages "Free Gaza and Free Palestine" and "Liberate all ghettos" on the remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto wall:

"I am not saying there is a comparison with the monstrosity of Nazi death camps, but I am saying we must talk about the silence in Israel and the world when people are confined in a ghetto-like place…

Delegations of young Israelis [come here] to see the history of our people but also are subjected to militaristic and nationalistic brainwashing on a daily basis. Maybe if they see what we wrote here today they will remember that oppression is oppression, occupation is occupation, and crimes against humanity are crimes against humanity, whether they have been committed here in Warsaw or in Gaza."
