Students for Justice in Palestine -10 Nov 2010
A diverse group of Arizona State University students joined together to protest IDF Sargent Nadav Weinberg’s lecture on the “Ethics of the IDF.” We organized a silent protest to give a voice to the Palestinian civilians who have been silenced by IDF policy.
Indeed, talking about the “Ethics of the IDF,” while the IDF is accused of committing war crimes and possible crime against humanity by the United Nations is shameless propaganda. This is the same IDF that is responsible for maintaining the longest military occupation in modern history. Additionally, Amnesty International called IDF’s operation in Gaza, in December 2008 and January 2009, “22 days of death and destruction.” The U.N. investigation by Richard Goldstone found that “the assault was designed to humiliate and terrorize a civilian population.” Roughly 1,500 people were killed by the IDF during the assault, a third of them women and children.
In this protest, Arizona State University students stand up for justice and equality, giving a voice to Palestinian civilians.
