‘I felt this sting’ — activist describes being hit by rubber bullet fired by Israelis

on 3 Comments

This is a video I made at a demonstration in Nabi Saleh in 2012. Vivienne Porzsolt, a longtime activist for Palestinian human rights from Australia, describes being hit by a rubber bullet in Nabi Saleh. She then pulls out the rubber bullet.

Her description is in the first minute of the video. I know it doesn’t really matter in the end whether the young men at Beitunia were killed by live fire or rubber bullets, but Porzsolt’s account undermines the claim that Israelis were only firing rubber bullets.

    “It’s so unjust”. She’s so right.
    And what is Judaism doing stuck behind the injustice ?

    You’re so right. I’ve been reading anti-Zionist information now for 4 years, including Mondoweiss and Lawrence of Cyberia. My whole outlook has changed.

    I still had a sliver of room for Judaism, but when you realize that Zionism is the culmination of Judaism, and that Judaism has no power to rein in Zionism, the good name of Judaism is utterly wrecked.

    Personally, I don’t know what to do with Judaism in my life. I’m looking elsewhere.
