Video: What if you built a refuge for a persecuted people in a place where another people already lived?

Jewish Voice for Peace video seeks to explain the conflict in 6 minutes. Pass it along. “What would happen if you built a refuge for a persecuted people in a place where another people already lived?” Persecuted Jewish refugees from Europe found a home; another group of refugees was created. Israeli expansion has created “Jewish only cities” in an occupation that is “permanent and entirely unjust.” And Israel has bombed a captive population in Gaza. “All to gain maximum land.”

Peace talks have actually made things worse. “Peace talks are good if they’re real, but not if they’re theater, to cover a landgrab.” Against the US superpower that funds Israel, another superpower can make a difference: You. Boycott. “Now it’s the Palestinians’ turn for freedom and justice.” The narration (superb) is by Marilyn Neimark.
