Video: Israeli Anti-Zionist activists and Palestinians meet face-to-face at Gaza fence

On October 10, Israeli anti-Zionist and international activists were invited to the Gaza fence across from an encampment of the Great March of Return. The Palestinians held a cultural event of traditional music and dancing in support of the Right of Return. The Israeli activists created a memorial by hanging pictures on the fence of Palestinian protestors executed by the Israeli army during the Great March of Return in previous months.

The two groups met and were able to see and speak to each other with only a few dozen meters and the siege fence between them. Armed soldiers arrived and attempted to disperse the meeting. Activists from both sides chanted together to the rhythm of a drum, “free free Palestine”. The demonstrators left from both sides without incident, promising to meet each other again.

    Great to see and hear. The most moral must have been in a bit of a Zioquandary. Couldn`t very well shoot to thrill with those pesky Israeli activists watching on.

      Just received:

      Al Mezan Center For Human Rights, Oct. 12/18

      Press Release:
      “Seven People Killed and 257 Injured at Friday Demonstrations in Gaza.”

      EXCERPT:
      “Seven Palestinian protesters, including one child, were killed and around 257 persons were injured by the Israeli military during the Great Return March demonstrations on Friday, 12 October 2018, in the Gaza Strip. Among those injured were 49 children, nine women, four journalists, and one paramedic. Of the injured, about 180 were shot with live fire, including 25 children and three women.

      “The initial documentation by Al Mezan Center for Human Rights shows that at 4pm on Friday, 12 October 2018, Israeli forces fired live ammunition, plastic-coated steel bullets, tear gas canisters, and a sound bomb at unarmed protesters. Many journalists and paramedics were also present at the demonstrations.”

      If the Israeli activists joined the Gazans then maybe the IDF would be a bit more reluctant to fire on the crowd? Maybe not.

    @Ossinev

    Well said.
    The Zionist leadership is extremely worried about the worldwide ever increasing number of pro-Palestinian, anti-Zionist Jews. It doesn’t fit the “plan.”

    BTW, just received from a Canadian friend: Links to Canada’s Independent Jewish Voices:

    Well worth checking out!!

    A Palestinian woman dies after being hit by stones thrown by vicious illegal settlers.
    The evil continues.

    Let them go back. Let them go back to Arabia, to Syria, to Iraq, to Jordan, or anywhere east of the river Jordan. They are not coming to Jaffa and they are not coming to Haifa. Just like Arafat who was born in Egypt, let them go there as well.

    And the Settlers, from the Diaspora; should they go back, too? No, because God loves them so much. Arab farmers, planting and caring for olive trees, they must go; while punk suprema-Jews, destroying olive trees, they’ll stay. Yeah, because clearly, that’s what The Land wants. Jews need a Homeland, as there we’re the Masters. Power; sweet.

    Here’s a well-researched voice from the Christian community on the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim ideas about a Messiah. He demolishes the Zionist claims for Israel. At one point he was being hassled by YouTube. Now they are running ads with his videos. The Zionists are reduced to running their own ads in an attempt to counter his voice.

    A bit long, but an interesting development. The religious analysis begins at 3:00 in the video.

      And this lovely comment from your Zionist brother-in-supremacism:

      … Look how the Jews produced amazing art in Theresienstadt during the Holocaust.

      “there is this video presented without irony.”

      Oh, come on, “Yonah”! The first sentence:

      “Here’s a well-researched voice from the Christian community on the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim ideas about a Messiah.”

      is one big “IRONY ALERT”. Stop being such a prig, already.
